Philippines, November 25 – Star World Philippines premiered Asia’s Next Top Model, the first Pan-Asian fashion reality series adaptation of the original hit TV series America’s Next Top Model.
14 contestants, hailing from various countries across Asia such as Singapore, Hong Kong, The Philippines, Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand, India, Japan and Nepal, will compete to represent Asia by becoming the first contestant to win Asia’s Next Top Model! For many of the girls, the stakes are high and competition is fierce, considering some of the contestants have never modeled before. Our very own Stephanie Retuya, part-time model and full-time mother to a baby girl will also compete for this prestigious title.
The show is hosted by the stunning and gorgeous Indonesian beauty, Nadya Hutagalung. Nadya will provide guidance to the aspiring top models with her knowledge of the industry; from fashion to catwalk and most importantly, harness their confidence for the modeling world. She will be joined by a team of professional fashion experts from the region including fashion photographer Todd Anthony Tyler, Singapore’s most famous flamboyant fashion director Daniel Boey and TV personality and model mentor Joey Mead-King.
The team will guide the contestants through their modeling journey in the aim of finding a future model that truly represents Asia. The ultimate winner will get a chance to become the face of Canon IXUS 2013’s campaign, a modeling contract with Storm Model Management in UK & Europe, a cover feature with Harper’s Bazaar magazine, a Subaru XV and more. The inaugural winner of Asia’s Next Top Model will be selected by the host and a panel of judges, including individual guest judges who will make special appearances in various episodes, as the most outstanding woman, who is feisty and fashionable enough, to strut her way to the high-stakes world of international modeling.
Ms. Tyra Banks herself was visibly excited when talking about the new show, exclaiming “our Asian girls are ready to kick some American tail!”. Despite being one of the many international spin-offs of the Top Model franchise, this is the first version with a pan-regional scope – featuring nothing less than the best potential top models Asia has to offer.
