Nyadak “Duckie” Thot is an Australian model that is mesmerising everyone at the moment.
Duckie Thot, real name Nydak Thot, is one of six siblings who grew up in Melbourne, Australia.
Her parents settled in Australia having left war-torn South Sudan a year before she was born. Her father is a vet and her mother works in childcare.
Her sister is Nikki Perkins, a YouTuber who vlogs alongside her husband Jamie Perkins.
Duckie describes herself as a “country bum at heart” and loves to work out, cycle, go horse riding and be outdoors.
Duckie was introduced to modelling when she was 15 by her sister Nikki who also models. Nikki would take her along to photo shoots and Duckie would observe.
In 2013 she appeared on Australia’s Next Top Model – a spin-off of the American show hosted by supermodel Tyra Banks.
Duckie was just 17 when she took part and finished third. With Australia so far from the world’s fashion capitals, she took a risk and moved to Brooklyn, New York to try and jump start her career.
She signed with New York Model Management and made her catwalk debut for Yeezy – Kanye West’s fashion label.
She went on to front campaigns for Rihanna’s Fenty fashion and beauty lines and the Bajan singer has become something of a mentor to her.
You may have also seen her in the 2018 Pirelli calendar styled by British Vogue editor Edward Enninful in a Alice In Wonderland inspired scene.
