Place of Origin:
Bradford, Yorkshire, England
Algerian / French / English mix
Scouted by my amazing agent Ian Loughran at IMG London
Favorite music, band:
So much to list! Been listening to a lot of 70s music recently something about it is so carefree and happy, it instantly makes me want to shake my ass and jump around.
Favorite movie, tv show:
One of my favourite movies has to be “C’est arrivé près de chez vous” it is the epitome of black comedy. Usually I’m not a big TV show fan, however, I’ve watched all the series from House of Cards. Jesus! Kevin Spacey what an actor and what a show! It’s so twisted! Oh and also The League of Gentlemen – a British TV show, it’s an oldy but goody!
Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
So many to list! If I narrow it down I’d have to say Mr Tom Ford, what a man…sigh. As for Fragrance – I finished my bottle of Black Orchid super fast. Anything that’s deep, woody and with a spicy scent. To be really honest I prefer men’s perfume.
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
Acting… it’s the way forwards….
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
It’s definitely smoking – pure evil.
Favorite modeling experience so far?
My first job was exclusive with Tom Ford for beauty, RTW and eyewear – Lucky indeed. I was the brand’s first ever exclusive. It makes me very proud and Mr Ford was an incredible introduction to the industry.
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
The people. Only in the UK do you get greeted at airport passport control with a “hiya love, how was your flight?”
Which brand would you really love to model for?
So many brands/designers I like, would love to work for a fragrance beauty contract.
