Such great news! Singapore model Vivien Ong can now call herself Elle Italia covergirl — she is on the cover of the upcoming Elle Italia’s February 2013 issue. Featured in Prada, Vivien has a skip in her beat as she poses mid-jump with her signature short crop dyed a dark shade of green.
Fashion show producer and Asia’s Next Top Model judge Daniel Boey was one of the first Singapore celebrities to congratulate Vivien by publishing the cover on his Facebook page. Vivien has come a long way since winning model-spotting competition The New Paper New Face in 2010. Since moving to Paris, she was signed to Next Model Management which manages top models and talents such as Arizona Muse and Alexa Chung.
According to The Straits Times’ Urban fashion weekly, Vivien was the first Singapore model to walk in the Big Four fashion shows last season since Hanis Hussey closed the 1983 Yves Saint Laurent show in Paris. No word yet on the shows Vivien will be walking for fall/winter 2013 although she revealed to Urban that she is slated to walk for some shows.
