Being a model is no easy feat, and standing out in the fashion industry and getting booked for shows is harder. But Singaporean model Duan Mei Yue has captured attention with her unique style, earning her spots on runways in New York and Seoul Fashion Weeks, and even landing a spot as one of the runway models for a Dior haute couture show. Here are three things to know about her.
Her favourite Korean model is Bae Yoon Young
“I met her at Dior last year. She’s the nicest person ever. We sat in the lounge together and I was like, ‘I know you, I’m a big fan of you.’ And she was like, ‘Oh, really? OMG!’ And then we started talking. And after that I met her once again in Korea, I bumped into her in Garosugil … and I was like, ‘Does she remember me?’ And apparently she watches my Instagram stories all the time.”
She loves the oversized look
“I like the boxy silhouttte. I feel like a bad girl,” she jokes.
She started modelling to express her love for aesthetics and fashion
She says, “After I started watching fashion shows, I saw how beautiful these models were and I was like, ‘Yo, I need to get on that, I need to be like that too.'”
