Discovered at a train station in Amsterdam when she was just 14 years old, Imaan Hammam quickly shot to super stardom. Born to a Moroccan mother and an Eqyptian father, her striking features set her aside from many of her counterparts and made her a darling of the industry. Just three years after her discovery she was flown to Paris to open the Givenchy show, and shortly after that she appeared in various international editions of Vogue.
She’s walked the runway for just about every major fashion house you could think of, including the likes of Burberry, Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Michael Kors, Chanel, DKNY, Jean Paul Gaultier, Hugo Boss, Stella McCartney, Tommy Hilfiger, and Tom Ford to mention just a few. Similarly, she’s appeared in advertising campaigns for Céline, Givenchy, Coach, Giorgio Armani, Tiffany & Co., Calvin Klein, Shiseido, H&M, Topshop, and Scotch & Soda.
Most recently, she won Couturesque Magazine’s Model of the Year competition by a landslide – she received more than half of the public vote against big names like Lucky Blue Smith and Bella Hadid.
In addition to her success as a model, the 20 year old has also already appeared in her first movie and speaks three languages (English, Arabic and Dutch – and she’s learning Portuguese)! We can’t wait to see what she’s going to next, but in the meantime enjoy some shots from her Instagram feed and give her a follow over at @imaanhammam.
