5 Nepali Super Models Who Stand Out From the Rest

To stand out from the rest, a person needs to possess higher potentials than the competition. Same goes in the fashion modeling.

The five Nepali supermodels that are introduced below have achieved higher rank than the others. For your information, we are talking about female supermodels and not males.

Before beginning to the actual topic, let me define who is a supermodel and why she is called so.

A supermodel is none other than a fashion model. The only differences are that a supermodel is paid high and she has a strong background internationally, working with the leading fashion designers. Additionally, she is not just a model with pretty face and an attractive body, but also has earned the respect from the industry with her undeniable personality and presence.
