Chocolate human Barbie doll with perfect facial proportions
Nyadak Thot, or Duckie Thot, is a Sudanese-Australian model who is called a real-life version of Barbie doll due to her ideally gorgeous facial and body structure. Her pretty face is unbelievably similar to the famous Barbie’s with golden proportions.
Though Duckie Thot is now a social media star, she has overcome a variety of difficulties and prejudices. Not many people know that deep inside that rare and stunning beauty is a girl who used to be cruelly bullied for being different.
At the age of 17, Duckie decided to compete in Australia’s Next Top Model, and she was considered as one of the most potential models, a front runner of the competition. That sounds rather enjoyable; however, in fact, she had to face with extreme discriminations during and after the competition.
“I was extremely upset and embarrassed that they ‘didn’t know how’ to cornrow my natural hair when at the end of the day that’s their job. I sat in front of the mirror silently crying before my shoot doing my own hair, cameras rolling while all the other girls had hair stylists.” Duckie Thot shared.
The media talked about her with heavy sarcasm, they made fun of her special complexion, hair texture and her natural weight. Winnie Harlow, a famous former contestant in America’s Next Top Model, even called her “cauliflower head”, a taboo phrase which is regarded as a racial insult against black people with curly hairstyles.
At that time, Duckie Thot was totally depressed. She got away from the fashion industry, and tormented herself all the time. Fortunately, she was encouraged by Australia’s Next Top Model judge Charlotte Dawson. Though Dawson committed suicide in 2014, Duckie still remembers every single word that the kind-hearted Australia's Next Top Model judge said to her. Thanks to that, the young model was immensely inspired to be a stronger version of herself.
After several years of gaining back her self-esteem, Nyadak Thot got back to the fashion industry to prove her qualities. So gorgeous just like a human Barbie doll she is, Thot is now a favorite face loved by various influential designers.
The 21-year-old model has more than 315.000 followers on Instagram. Every Thot’s picture becomes viral. Most people get confused and charmed looking at her stunning photos. Such comments like “I won't believe she's real until I see her in person”, “Literally thought you were a Barbie.” are not difficult to find under Thot’s photos. Her beauty is now widely desired. The beautiful chocolate girl is called “Barbie” by the fans, and she appears to love this comparison a lot. She asked her followers “Did y'all just nominate me to be ya new Barbie? I mean...” with love emoticons.
Duckie Thot hopes that her story will inspire other black girls who are still unaware of their beauties or unconfident about themselves: “So my driving force is that hopefully—well, they don’t necessarily look to me—but that black women in general need to be out there the way that other women are. It needs to happen for ‘us’ already!”
All in all, Duckie’s comeback must not be her final goal. The fans wish that she would make use of her privileged beauty to gain more and more achievements in her future modeling career.
