Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 winner Maureen Wroblewitz is still enjoying the perks of her victory.
Maureen flew to New York last month to see the latest collections at the New York Fashion Week.
The first ASUS ambassador had the chance to rub elbows with top international models, and she could hardly believe that she got to meet them.
“It’s crazy because I would always hope to go to New York, and actually see all the shows,” Maureen told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during a short one-on-one at the recently held ASUS launch in Bonifacio Global City.
“It was one of my dreams and it happening is just crazy!," she gushed.
“I got to meet a lot of celebrities as well and models. It’s just crazy because you see them everywhere!”
And by her own account, Maureen could hardly contain herself when she crossed paths with Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima.
“I was starstruck. I couldn’t even ask for a photo!”
But the Filipina top model did get her prized photo with the Brazilian supermodel, “She’s so tall! I felt super short next to her…”

Maureen said she was so bowled over by Adriana that she was unable to speak in her presence, “I couldn’t even say anything or respond…
“Adriana Lima is such a nice person. She’s super humble.
"After that, ‘Did I just meet her?’”
Maureen said she had hoped to meet other models she idolizes, “I really wanna meet Cara Delevigne.
“I just love her and I love her personality. I love that she’s just herself, doesn’t care about anything.”
Maureen also hoped to meet another Victoria Secret model, “I also wanna meet Taylor Hill… I know she was in New York, but I didn’t get to meet her!”
CASUAL FASHION. Maureen still prefers to keep her OOTDs “super casual,” even though the fashion world presents a multitude of style.
Her go-to fashion essentials comprise of jeans, top, and jacket.
Maureen told PEP.ph, “I love jeans. I wear crop top or shirt and then the jacket.
“I’m very casual, especially when I just go out to hang with friends and family.
But the 19-year-old Filipino-German did look up to the “modern” OOTDs of international models Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, and Kendall Jenner.
“It’s like some outfits are different. They’re modern.
“It’s like they don’t care about other people… they just wear what they want to wear.”
