Now, as much as we get very opinionated during our weekly Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 recaps, we can’t help but root for the two Singaporean representatives in the competition — namely Layla Ong and R Nametha — both with sharp cheekbones, statuesque figures, and attractive faces that we can see work both on high fashion editorials and commercial shoots, which is really why they were our first picks for this fashion spread. Little did we know that, compared to the slightly awkward beginnings on the show, they’ve since grown leaps and bounds in their confidence too.

Go ahead and check them out — here, the dynamic duo blaze through a range of trends, all versatile pieces and all ready to shop on Zalora in a quick click. And as if they aren’t affordable enough (a whole outfit for less than $100?), you can also get an exclusive 15% off! Simply key in ‘NYLONSG’ during checkout.

We’ll also be giving away two full outfits (the ones you see on our header image) to one lucky girl, so try your luck and like & share our Facebook post as well. Alright, we’ll go straight to the fine, fresh and fierce series of images, shall we?

A billowy blouse with a lace-up front is decidedly bohemian; modernise it with light-wash denim and tinted aviators.
