Duckie Thot has become one of the most popular and prominent models in recent years, with many famous designers and major brands requesting her to appear in hundreds of campaigns. The young model, born in 1995, has even been dubbed “the black Barbie” of the fashion world, a moniker coined behind the closed doors of the fashion industry.
However, things have not always gone her way, and the explanation is mostly to be found in people’s ignorance and biases that have emerged as a result of a lack of sensitivity and care. She, on the other hand, did not give up and, despite taking a break from the world of fashion, she returned to the global catwalk and is now one of the world’s most recognized models.
Her Instagram account is followed by over a million people, many of whom want to have her figure and attractiveness. Duckie Thot, 25, lives in Australia; her parents fled the civil war in South Sudan to this new continent.
She was fortunate to be able to travel to Australia with her large African family (the young lady actually has six brothers and sisters), where she began her modeling career. Her sister, YouTube sensation Nikki Perkins, must have influenced her decision to pursue this path.
Duckie had to deal with a world of fashion that was not always welcoming to diversity before becoming the famous “black Barbie.” In reality, black models frequently and openly discuss how they are the only ones left behind the scenes while a slew of white ladies gains more work.
Fortunately, things are improving in this area as well, and we are attempting to let go of our preconceived notions more and more.
Duckie Thot rose to prominence at the age of 17 after finishing third in the eighth season of “Australia’s Next Top Model.” Duckie made her catwalk debut in 2017 after focusing on her goal, and she is now followed by hundreds, if not millions, of people worldwide. Her fans adore her. Advertising firms are still vying for her to appear in their commercials, and her fans adore her.
Of course, Duckie is a strong and self-assured young lady who would never, ever be knocked down by criticism from a stranger, but she had to work hard on herself to reach where she is now.
A great role model to look up to as well as someone to appreciate for her remarkable beauty!
