After being named the second runner-up of Singapore Idol in 2009, Swiss-Indian beauty, Tabitha Nauser has forged ahead. She has sung the official theme song of the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics, “Everyone”, acted in musicals like National Broadway Company and Hotpants, and performed at the Mosaic Music Festival. She’s also the host of SingTel mio TV’s Goals HQ and Goals Express, and DJs for 98.7FM on the weekends. And also, you’ve seen her featured in many other publications.
It’s no wonder that she — of gorgeous golden locks, rockin’ bod and elegant poise — is also the centre of attraction for many admirers.
To compliment our Who’s That Hottie exclusive interview with Tabitha, we’ve put together a fashion photography spread “in the desert” theme, outdoors, showcasing designs by Pleatation – a Singapore-based pleat-focused concept store. During the photoshoot, even nature herself willed to see Tabitha wet, and poured. Instead of heading for the shelters, Tabitha was all-game, enjoying herself in the rain, ravishing the wet-themed photoshoot. And yes, despite the wet-weather conditions, it was a hot shoot, with Tabitha spicing up the photoshoot.
