South-Australian migrant Adut Akech is our model crush today for many reasons.
First, she is absolutely stunning. This beauty comes with a contrasting dark babyface and very sultry lips, which always seems to get the right concept across whether she’s in an editorial, billboard or on the runway.
She is a classic grass to grace tale. Adut moved to Australia from South Sudan at the age of six and was signed to Chadwick models at age 17. A month later she was the breakout star at MBFWA walking 16 shows. After this there was no stopping her as international agencies courted her and got placed with Elite France. She was then flown to Paris by St. Laurent for their September 2016 and march 2017 ready to wear collections respectively.
Adut has since shot 4 campaigns for saint Laurent in Paris, New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo and at the moment, is under world wide show exclusive.
She has also done a lot of international editorials including, Vogue Australia, Stellar magazine, i-D, Numero, The Gentlewoman and Wonderland.
Not one to be side-tracked by all the glitz of model-hood, she still maintains a firm focus on her education and family life.
According to persons she has worked with, her engaging smile and genuinely sweet and humble approach to all, makes her one of the most intriguing and popular fashion stars to emerge from Australia.
Adut of South Sudan, from Adelaide to the world!
