Lisa Cant


How do you use ASW and what's your favorite site feature?

Lisa Cant : Just to keep in touch with people I don’t see that often. And I love looking at everyone’s picture.

What's your best ASW anecdote?

LC: While I was on a photo shoot for Vogue magazine, the photographer received an invite for ASW. He ended up stopping the shoot for three quarters of an hour, exploring the site and creating a profile, with the help of the Vogue assistant. The rest of us just watched as he was more interested in the site than shooting pictures!

What are some of the recent advertising campaigns in which you've appeared?

LC: I'm in the new Juicy Couture perfume and clothing ads. I’m also in the Van Cleef & Arpels ads.
