Her strong, edgy editorial face, confident walk and signature hair catches our attention. And once we get to know the Malaysian born catwalker, her fun personality wins our heart. Recently we interviewed one of the most exciting faces in Jakarta’s modelling scene for our first ever #art8ambyinterview series in which she tells us her beauty routine and her favourite Indonesian food.
Can you share the story of how did you get scouted and started modeling?
When I was in university, one of my seniors came up and directly asked me whether I’m interested to do a test shoot with him which I find very interesting and there you go. Its addictive!
Who are the models that inspired you? Have you ever met your favourite models and get starstruck?
Of course Kate Moss is my spirit animal but lately I’ve always interested with models that I can relate to; whether its the curly hair like Damaris Goodrie, or interesting personality like Binx or Ali Michael, and all those fab fab models like Freja Beha and BFF, Abbey Lee, urgh and the list goes on and on and..
Nope. How i wish ..
What would be your dream gig as a model?
IMG, sign me! And I want to be featured in models.com and as the coverpage for W mag and to walk for Givenchy or Balmain. Amen to that. 🙂
What is your daily beauty routine and how do you maintain your beautiful, natural curly hair?
Keratin shampoo, and DONT GO AGAINTS YOUR HAIR TEXTURE! you gotta embrace what chu got!
How do you usually dress for casting and what are the essential items you carry on your bag everywhere?
Of course the ‘dresscode’ to casting will always be white or black equals minimal. But I love to mix and match sometimes. Still black and white, but maybe a hint of silver or gold (you gotta choose) accessories and a choker is a must to me because it gives the long-neck-effect feelings. Pair it up with boots or just sneakers and you’re ready to werkk it.
What is your favourite book and movie of all time?
Forrest Gump! Fav book How To Be Parisian!
What are you usually do during your free time? And what is your guilty pleasure?
Nail art. Munchies after 12!
What is your hidden talent that nobody knows?
To give people ‘that-judging-look’ face but to be exact I’m just thinking about what to eat for dinner.
What do you think about Indonesia and do you have favourite spots to visit while in here? Also what is your favourite Indonesian food?
I’m in love with Indonesia. Indo, kamu keren!
Well, I don’t have specific one but I don’t mind just chilling around Kemang, but i’m looking forward to go to Bandung. Yeap, I’ve never been there before 😦
NASI UDUK KEBUN KACANG, forever in my heart.
Last but not least, what would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I’m going to be a sexy chic librarian!
