We don't know about you, but nothing makes our Monday more bearable than aВ bite of beauty news that's equally exciting and inspiring. This morning's dish? Model Duckie Thot,В 22, is officially L'OrГ©al's newest global spokesperson, and frankly, we're not surprised. ThotВ is increasingly using her growing platform to spread awareness surrounding industry inclusivity, self-love, and confidence, and of course her head-turning beauty is hard not to notice either. (FYI-she'll be one ofВ 19 models of color walking the Victoria's Secret runwayВ this fall.) The industry is already predicting she has the rareВ formula to become one of the world's most iconic supermodels and rumblings like "the next Naomi Campbell" have even been whispered. Casual.
"For both her breath-taking look and advocating for diversity and self-love, DuckieВ ThotВ has been hailed 'future supermodel,'" reads a glowing press release from the brand. "Now the Australian-Sudanese voice for Black Beauty makes herВ brandВ debut at PFW SS19, by stepping into the L'OrГ©al Paris family and declaring 'Because I'm Worth It."
While Thot has previously commended brandsВ like Fenty and LancГґme for their inclusivity, she's ecstatic to join the iconic likes of L'OrГ©al to continueВ advocating for diversity and to use her powerful stance in the beauty industry to make a difference. (Plus, it's long been acknowledged the brand is one of the best drugstore options as far as inclusive shade ranges go-it's the pillar that cult-lovedВ True Match Foundation was built upon.)
"I'mВ honoredВ to represent L'OrГ©al Paris, aВ brand that celebratesВ infiniteВ waysВ toВ beВ beautifulВ andВ makes products for all women," Thot explains in the press release. "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 NВ°1 beauty brand!"
