Asia's Next Top Model Cycle 3 winner Ayu Gani graces Cosmopolitan Indonesia's January 2016 issue.
In her Instagram post and other social media accounts of the photo-video shoot that showed Gani flaunting her svelte figure in ensembles that included a cropped black top, she elicited positive comments.
Gani showed that she is a true embodiment of the fun, fearless female.
Since besting other Asian beauties in the prestigious modelling competition, Gani has appeared on the glossy pages of several magazines, apart from being featured on the cover of Harper's Bazaar Singapore, part of her prize package.
From flipping fashion magazines and wishing that she be featured in them, Gani has come a long way. Prior to being hailed the winner in Asia's Next Top Model, the statuesque model participated in several fashion shows in her home country.
It is her hard-earned victory in the third season of the reality television show that opened other doors for her career. Gani takes pride in being the first Indonesian to win the coveted Asia's Next Top Model crown.
Gani bested two other contestants, the Philippines Marlene Monika Sta Maria and Singapore's Aimee Rose Cheng-Bradshaw. She caught the judges' attention in the photo shoot and runway walk that had the contenders donning haute couture dresses, The Jakarta Post reported.
Among the Indonesian model's plum awards is the opportunity to be represented by London's Storm Model Management.
As part of the package of winning the third cycle of Asia's Next Top Model, Gani is now represented by Storm Model Management, the agency that handles celebrities that include Kate Moss, Monica Bellucci, Behati Prinsloo, Emma Watson, and many others.
When she bagged the Asia's Next Top Model title, Gani has stated that a love life is not on her radar. She tweeted that she has "the biggest support" of kin, fans, and closest friends.
A former English Literature major who shifted her sights to the business side of the fashion industry, Gani eventually became at ease with, and loved, working in front of the cameras.
Gani has lent her face to several brands, including Hewlett Packard.
The exotic looking easily transitioned from Asia to America. When she enlisted in a performing arts school in America, she got noticed for her looks. Diversity was the buzzword. It was also how her fashion sense was developed, Harper's Bazaar reported.
Today, Gani has spread her wings and gone full throttle with her international modelling career.
