With the new season of “America’s Next Top Model” getting in high gear, Campus Circle caught up with last cycle’s winner, Los Angeles’ own Saleisha Stowers. Here, she shares her favorite local spots and a few random tidbits.

Restaurant: LaLa’s Grill (7229 Melrose Ave.). Delicious!

Music Venue: Ford Amphitheatre (2580 Cahuenga Blvd. East, Hollywood). It’s beautiful.

Place to shop: The Grove or Melrose. Love it.

Neighborhood: Anywhere in the Valley. I love the Valley ... NoHo Arts District. Breathtaking.

Thing to do: I like to relax at home with friends and family.

Breakout Band: Paramore.

What she learned from “ANTM”: Always stay positive, any negative critiques can be made good. Most importantly, I learned how much I love the world of modeling.

And the best part about working with Tyra Banks: I love Tyra. She is a great person. Having her there to teach and critique us was definitely the best part. She’s that model mom away from home.

“America’s Next Top Model” airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on CW.
