With her glossy raven hair, olive skin and curvy figure, you’d be forgiven for mistaking Nadia Aboulhosn for Kim Kardashian.
But it’s not just her striking resemblance to the reality TV star that’s making her a household name.
Nadia has hundreds of thousands of followers, a modelling contract and counts Lena Dunham as her biggest fan.
Nadia, 26, was born to a Lebanese father and American mother and fled her family home in Florida when she was 22 to relocate to New York.
She now works full-time as a blogger and earns money from advertising and campaigns.
She has adorned the glossy pages of Italian Vogue, Lucky magazine and worked for American Apparel.
And now, in perhaps her most exciting coup to date, she’s been snapped up by boohooPLUS to design a plus-size range for the e-tailer.
Congrats to Nadia — check out this video from her photo shoot
Here’s the details on how Nadia and boohoo ended up working together:
The brand first meet Nadia during a trip to New York and have worked together ever since, but it was during a recent photo shoot when the idea of creating a co-branded collection was hatched.
The 20-piece trend led capsule wardrobe was created by Nadia and boohoo’s design team at the brand’s HQ in Manchester.
Speaking about the range, which lands on March 23, Nadia said: ‘It has been such an amazing experience working with boohoo, they encourage me to be as creative as possible and I really appreciate that.
‘The collection is inspired by my personal style; minimal androgynous with a touch of glamour, it’s all about body confidence and feeling strong in what you wear.’
Championing on-trend fashion for all sizes, the Nadia Aboulhosn for boohoo capsule collection is set on a monochrome colour palette with pops of powder blue and cobalt with key pieces such as the blazer dress, the logo jumpsuit and the cut out asymmetrical two-piece. The collection aims to embrace and celebrate women with body confidence.
Do you think you would wear the stuff from this line?
Here’s more of Nadia acting silly.
Part of her appeal is that she doesn’t take herself too seriously – and she’s keen to show the real her on social media.
Her Instagram snaps include her wearing a nose strip and bleaching her facial hair, with the caption: “Face hair bleach and blackhead session, followed by shaving 95 per cent of my overly hairy half-Arab body.
Another shows her imitating Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda lap dance on her cat, and others show her devouring fast food.
Speaking to The Telegraph, she explained: ‘I take pictures of me going to McDonalds. I make it a point to show I’m still eating oodles of noodles. I think that’s why people can relate to me.’
