No stranger to fashion

Selesner is no stranger to the business of aesthetic and the world of fashion, having spent more than a decade in the world of beauty and international modelling.

Born in Monaco to a French-Chinese father and Jewish-American mother, she grew up in New York where she was talent-scouted to be a model when she was only 14.

In 2000, Selesner moved to Hong Kong where she became a top model who lent her exotic looks to high-fashion catwalks and consumer commercials for brands like Citibank, DeBeers diamonds, and Olay skincare. Her striking looks and business savvy extended her to several offers, including assignments with major designer labels like Yohji Yamamoto, Vivienne Westwood, Dior and Chanel.

Her modelling experience also landed her high-profile gigs in three Hong Kong movies: “Silver Hawk,” “Rob-B-Hood” and “A Mob Story.”

Selesner has since diversified her activities, landing her positions as host for a variety of major events and television programs such as the Asian Film Awards, “Ebuzz,” “E! News Asia” and Channel V.

“We are thrilled to have Lisa S join this season as our new host, mentor and judge. She is a wonderful role model and she brings a real attitude to the show. This season will definitely be hotter, sexier and tougher than ever before” said Jef Lim, head of programming and production at Celestial Tiger Entertainment.
