    Sweet Jesus

    Just breathtaking. Long time I haven’t seen such a stunning new face

    I so wanna see more shots with her

    good luck

  • gomez isab

    Tall and lean with an athletic build yet a dancer’s grace, she also has that baby doll face that can exhibit both angst and serenity. I wish her good luck!

  • Ed

    She’s gorgeous, reminds me of Lily Cole, face shape wise. Ok, here’s the funny thing. MALAYSIAN is not an ethnicity.. I’m from Singapore, Malaysian is a nationality =.= Is she trying to say Malay?? If so, wow, that’s exotic. English and Malay blood.

  • She has the look! Can’t wait to see more!

  • this girl is amazing…cant wait to see what 2011 brings her! best of luck Leila!

  • I like her. She’s a mixture of Wixson and Gustavsson.

  • She looks incredible. Her face is so unique and interesting – she looks like a super hot pixie. I’d absolutely love to shoot her.

    Given that Leila obviously hates UK’s freezing winter weather I think Select should send her to New Zealand ASAP – it’s warm and summery down here!

  • Yasmin

  • BMD

    I hate that term…scary skinny…is it scary for those that are not skinny?

    She’s super cute – great facial expressions.

  • wow:) I’ve seen her on the select website and I was very impressed, I love the shape of her face. She has good bone definition and yet her face is still a lovely round shape. Her legs go on forever, that’ll benefit her. I agree she looks like a doll, but with an edge. Hope she goes far, she seems a nice girl and she has amazing taste in music. Good luck :) -suppose you could check it out if you like a good old ramble.
