Gwen Chin is a regular fixture in the Malaysian modelling industry ever since she won the Face of Malaysia 2012 title, after which she represented our country to compete at the annual Asia New Star Model Contest 2013 in Seoul, South Korea.
Not long after, she took a couple of years off for personal reasons but this oriental beauty, who stands at 175cm in height, made her modelling comeback around mid 2019, stronger and better!
During her time away from active modelling, she was also appointed the official Pageant Walk Coach for the Miss Astro Chinese International Pageant (from which the winner represents Malaysia at the annual Miss Chinese International pageant) from 2016 to date, consecutively.
Besides that, she is also actively teaches as a modelling instructor for both aspiring kids and adults.
Currently based as a full time model in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Gwen is represented by boutique talent and model management company Evenstar Management.
Thank you for featuring me, SimplySxy!
I was born in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah; grew up in Kuching, Sarawak; and currently living in Kuala Lumpur. I’m just a simple and ordinary girl who loves fashion and lucky enough to be able to do what I love – modelling.
Where do you get your fashion inspiration from?
My fashion inspiration pretty much comes from various Malaysian fashion designers. To be honest, I did not have much fashion sense to begin with… It was only after I entered the modelling industry when I was 19 that I got exposed to the wonders of fashion and style. Getting to work with these talented and amazing designers really inspired my career as a model.
Do you have any favorite quotes or mottos you like to use?
The two quotes that I live by are simply “no pain, no gain”, and also “tasting the bitter at the beginning and feeling sweet at the end”. I believe very much in life, no matter how hard something can be, there will always be something good waiting for you at the end, somehow.
What if your proudest achievement so far?
I’m very proud to be a teacher who can help groom the future models of Malaysia, but my proudest achievement so far would be being a catwalk instructor for the Miss Astro Chinese International pageant, which is one of the biggest televised pageants in Malaysia.
On a scale of 1-10, how much of a foodie are you?
In terms of being a foodie, I don’t consider myself as one, so I’ll rate myself just a 5. I’m not much of a food hunter, so long as the food is good and it fills me up, I’m happy.
What have you always wanted to do but have yet to find the time for it?
This is a little tricky as I don’t really have a long bucket list… Whenever there is something that I want to do, I’ll make sure I’ll make time to go after it as soon as I can. But if I really have to choose, I would say what I want to do most is to have a nice long holiday.
If you could have a super power, what will it be?
The super power that I would like to have is mind reading. I’m sure this will help me a lot in my job as a model because when I attend castings, at least I will know what the casting directors are looking for exactly, helping me land jobs easily. Besides, I’m sure mind reading will improve my interpersonal skills and relationships too.
What is an ideal date to you?
My ideal date is not so much about the actual date itself but more of the person I’m going on that date with. As long as he is someone with positive vibes who can make me laugh all the time, any date with him will be ideal. And if he has dimples too, he gets bonus points!
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Gwen. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
To me, sexy is about your temperament and how you carry yourself. Take Angeline Jolie for example, she never fails to be sexy even if she is dressed all covered up. I’m a huge fan of hers!
Thanks very much once again for having me, SimplySxy!
