Catch Some Rays With Malaysia’s Hottest Model, Salomé Das

Dress; necklace; ring; and earrings; all from Dior

Growing up as a third culture kid … I found that my nationality was never part of my identity. I feel French, just as much as I feel Indian. I was born in Germany 18 years ago, but I grew up in Malaysia, and I feel so connected to the Malaysian culture and way of life. When I was younger … I wanted to be a volcanologist, and now I’m an avid diver. Mix these two together and my dream destination would be the Galápagos Islands. I can just imagine myself diving with marine iguanas by day, and trailing up volcanoes by night. When I’m travelling … as long as I’ve got my face wash, moisturiser and lip balm—I’m good. And a good book! All the Hercule Poirot books written by Agatha Christie … Ever since I can remember I’ve been obsessed with crime and detective stories, but nothing impressed and has stuck with me more than these books. I love Malaysia … It is my home—I’ve lived here almost my whole life. From the marine life, to the heritage and the diversity … There’s so many different, beautiful things about Malaysia, I could never pick just one thing.
