2019 #01 January — Layla Ong

Introducing the first girl to front NYLON Singapore’s digital covers in 2019 — none other than Layla Ong herself! If you’ve ever wondered what the literal embodiment of nice is, then Layla’s your gal. Kickstarting her modelling career at the prime age of 19, the supermodel from Basic Models has worked her way up the ropes for the past two and a half years to be where she is today. As one of the few frontrunners in the modelling scene here in Singapore, Layla Ong beams with confidence and doesn’t shy away from big opportunities that lie ahead of her — she’s walked for three Gucci shows (and counting)! With characteristic candour, the down-to-earth Singaporean charts the ups-and-downs of being a model, and details her aspirations for the future.
