Representatives from 8 countries from the biggest continent in the planet battled it out for 13 weeks to take home the prizes and the title of Asia’s Next Top Model. Gani from Indonesia wowed the judges with her presence on the finale runway, and a stunning photo lensed by John Baptiste Fort. Standing at 173 cm, she didn’t let her height ruin her chances of chasing her dreams. She compensated this shortcoming with her amazing bone structure, piercing eyes and the fact that her look (similar to Chiharu Okunugi and Gwen Lu) is one of those desired by high fashion for Asian faces.
Aside form their potential, the judges may have considered on who among the 3 finalist can be marketable for the London / European market. Gani’s editorial appeal may help her work at high fashion, though we may expect her to get limited runway work . But who knows if the Kate Moss luck will be by this beautiful Indonesian when she lands to London? On the other hand, there’s no doubt that Monika and Aimee loves the camera and are runway ready. We can predict to see them become working models in Asian countries soon, with Monika walking Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2015 just recently.

After this evening’s finale, Gani walked away with brand new Subaru XV STI, the opportunity of being the new face of TRESemmé for one of their 2015 campaigns, a spread and cover of Harper’s Bazaar Singapore, and a modeling contract with Storm Model Management in London. Congratulations to the top 3 girls. Win or lose, your homeland is proud of you.
Bless the models!
