Beauty about to take off

Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - FRONT PAGE - Lau­ren Pi­lat

SHE’S al­ready made her New York run­way de­but. And now High Wy­combe 16year-old Nakita Williams is vy­ing to be Aus­tralia’s next su­per­model af­ter land­ing the cover of Beauty and Hair In­done­sia.

A GROWTH spurt led teenager Nakita Williams to be­come an in­ter­na­tional run­way model and mag­a­zine cover girl with as­pi­ra­tions to be the next Gigi Ha­did.

Stand­ing al­most six feet tall, the 16-year-old from High Wy­combe made her New York Fash­ion Week de­but last year af­ter be­ing in­vited to walk for Fre­man­tle de­signer Azu­lant Akora.

Hav­ing only modelled for about two years at the time, the Dar­ling Range Sport Col­lege stu­dent said the whole ex­pe­ri­ence had been un­be­liev­able.

“It was un­real and it was such a great ex­pe­ri­ence for me to walk an in­ter­na­tional run­way for the first time,” she said. “I also got se­lected to walk for other de­sign­ers from dif­fer­ent coun­tries as well.”

Since then, the teenager has walked the run­ways of Lit­tle Italy by the Sea and Eco Fash­ion Week, be­fore ap­pear­ing in look­books in Thai­land and on the cover of Beauty and Hair mag­a­zine In­done­sia.

As an avid dancer and mu­si­cal theatre stu­dent, Nakita said mod­el­ling was a nat­u­ral step, es­pe­cially af­ter hav­ing a mas­sive growth spurt at 13.

“By the end of year 2015, I had got­ten re­ally tall, so my mum de­cided to en­rol me into mod­el­ling school,” she said.

“Now I’m go­ing to work re­ally hard to be­come a great model like Gigi Ha­did and Mi­randa Kerr.

“My ab­so­lute dream would be to be­come a Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret an­gel.”

To fur­ther her mod­el­ling ca­reer, Nakita has en­tered Australian Su­per­model of the Year and as part of the com­pe­ti­tion has been rais­ing money for Can­teen.
