She's one of Australia's hottest modelling exports.

Ajak cut a casual yet chic figure for Mirtha Michelle's launch of latest literary title, Letters, To Women Like Me.

A cropped white sweater with what appeared to be the word serious emblazoned on the front, showed off the personality's taut torso and belly piercing.

Teamed with a pair of skinny jeans that clung to Ajak's lean legs, the star accessorised further with a delicate necklace and drop earrings.
