The number one female model, picked by "an Independent panel of judges in the UK Asian Media Industry", was Hammasa Kohistani who doesn't really have a South Asian background (she was born in Uzbekistan and raised in Afghanistan) but seeing as she's a regular in the brit-asian fashion scene I suppose that's why she was included!
Here's a photo of Hammasa (in the red) at this year's Birmingham Asiana Wedding show with number 6 in the list Sharina Madlani:
They also published a list of their "10 most handsome south asian male models in the UK" which included these 3 models, shown here modelling Ziggi Studio designs at the 2010 Birmingham Asiana Wedding Show:

I'm not sure how these models were chosen for both of these lists, although the KZ Entertainment website did state "The selection process is not based on how many projects you have done but other crucial factors".
