Na­dia Rah­mat

So­cial me­dia star? Up - and- com­ing model? Dis­rup­tor? Meet the girl who’s made it all pos­si­ble

It started with an In­sta­gram photo Na­dia posted in 2014, au­di­tion­ing to model in Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2015 ad cam­paign for Marc by Marc Jacobs. The 26-year-old Sin­ga­porean suc­ceeded in her quest, beat­ing out some 50,000 other hope­fuls in her as­cen­sion to fash­ion’s top ta­ble. Her un­con­ven­tional beauty and strik­ing looks have set her apart in the fash­ion world, and she is now be­ing rep­re­sented by Up­front Mod­els Singapore and Lon­don’s Nevs Model Agency. Still, some de­trac­tors have called Na­dia “so ugly” and have even com­pared her to a “ghost”. Rather than be shaken, Na­dia re­mains pos­i­tive. “All I hope is for peo­ple to see be­yond their pre­con­ceived no­tions, and that there’s more to be­ing hu­man than the mere colour of your skin or how you look like on the out­side,” she muses.
