If you haven't heard of Duckie Thot yet, odds are you're about to see her everywhere—the 22-year-old Sudanese, Australian model just became L'Oréal's newest ambassador, and she looks absolutely s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g in the campaign photos. Thot (whose first name is actually Nyadak), will make her debut as a face of the brand at the Le Défilé L’Oréal Paris, the first ever fashion show on the Seine River in Paris. ~Fancy~.
A little background, if you will: In 2013, Thot came in third place on Australia's Next Top Model and decided to move to New York City thereafter, which definitely paid off. Since she made the trek from Oz, she's walked in numerous runway shows, most recently for Rihanna's Savage X Fenty lingerie line, and will also make her debut in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show this year. Congrats, btw!
She's also starred in ad campaigns for Fenty Beauty, Balmain, Moschino, and Oscar de la Renta to name a few.
'While emerging in a new generation of models, Duckie Thot knows how to use her voice to match the strength of her images,' said Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou, Global President, in a press release. (She once called out that she had to braid her own hair on ANTM because the hairstylists didn't know how to work with her natural texture.)
'Her energy and message of inclusivity makes her a perfect recruit for the L’Oréal Paris family: original and confident in her self-worth. We’re delighted to welcome Duckie for her to continue motivating women to believe in their own beauty around the globe,' Angeloglou adds.
