Digital powershaker, Duckie Thot arrived in New York with ambitions of becoming a model, and completely won the hearts of the fashion industry's major players in only five years — thanks to her outspoken nature and gorgeous looks. 

The 22-year-old has been hailed a ‘future supermodel’ for advocating for diversity and self-love. According to a statement released by the beauty brand, the Australian-Sudanese voice for Black Beauty will make her brand debut at Paris Fashion Week SS19. 

"I’m honoured to represent L’Oréal Paris, a brand that celebrates infinite ways to be beautiful and makes products for all women. I’m looking forward to helping more girls love the beauty of their dark skin. In my mind, I’m going back in time and telling the young girl I was: ‘Dream big, work hard and trust in yourself girl because one day you’re going to say ‘yes’ to the N°1 beauty brand!" Duckie said in the statement adds.  

Speaking on the partnership, L’Oréal Paris Global President, Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou said: "While emerging in a new generation of models, Duckie Thot knows how to use her voice to match the strength of her images. 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."

Duckie will make her debut brand appearance for Le Défilé L’Oréal Paris at Paris Fashion Week SS19, the first catwalk show on the river Seine. Duckie Thot will showcase the same talent that makes her one of fashion’s most wanted names alongside fellow brand ambassadors. Duckie Thot’s first L’Oréal Paris campaigns will be for the following products: Volume Million Lashes, Colorista, Infaillible Foundation and Rouge Signature.
