RAYNER LIM (@raynerlimjs)

Tell us why you want to be a model. It has always been my dream to walk the runway, ever since I was a child watching all the modelling reality TV shows and fantasising about it. Best physical feature? My eyes. They are small, so when I smile they will naturally “smize”. Biggest fashion regret? Going to town in my school PT kit and slippers. Naughty or nice? Naughty and nice. Describe your weekend style. Chilli to spend time with family and friends, and doing things that I like (watching dramas, shows, and movies). The most famous person you want know? Jeff Seid. What is your hidden talent? I can twist my entire ear into the ear canal. What do you believe in? Hard work beats talent.

DUSTIN LIM (@dust_lim)

Tell us why you want to be a model. I was approached by a few talent scouts and realised this was something that I could pursue. Since I have the looks and build, why not give it a shot? Best physical feature? I have received feedback that I have a sharp and ultra-fine jawline. Biggest fashion regret? Purchasing too many medium-sized clothing; most of them are now too tight for me to pull off. Naughty or nice? Nice. I try my best to be there when someone needs me. Describe your weekend style. Cool and simple. T-shirts and shorts will do. The most famous person you want know? David Beckham. Damn, he is talented and able to handle his career and family well. He is someone whom I really look up to. What is your hidden talent? I would say singing and songwriting, but I have yet to complete writing a song. What do you believe in? Hard work pays off. Don’t wait for miracles.

ABDUAZIZ MIRZAYOKHUBOV (@abduexample)

Tell us why you want to be a model. I want to shatter the stereotype that all models are arrogant and show the world that some models are more humble than those around us. Best physical feature? Having proportionate weight and height. Biggest fashion regret? To not have started modelling at a younger age. Naughty or nice? Nice to others, naughty to my lover. Describe your weekend style. Casual for comfort, but when I’m out for meetings, I go classic. The most famous person you want know? Keanu Reeves because of his modesty and morals. What is your hidden talent? It will remain hidden [laughs], but I would say my calmness. What do you believe in? Justice, which will come one day. The worth of our deeds over our clothes. Happiness, which depends on ourselves.

What do you believe in? I believe in only one God.
