Bella Hadid and Adut Akech Bring Bold Spring Colors to TikTok

The high fashion world has been one of the slower industries to get involved in the world of TikTok, but that hasn’t stopped Bella Hadid from leading the way and taking over the platform on her own. The model has fully embraced the app as a tool to let loose, engage in some memes, and provide a backstage look into her work, as well as to show off her fashionable friends every once in a while. In fact, the model’s latest posts managed to do all four of these at the same time, making for some grade-A content.

Adut Akech on Her Beauty Essentials, Favorite Red Carpet Moment and What She's Most Proud of

In the first few weeks of 2022, Adut Akech dropped a British Vogue cover, opened the Chanel Haute Couture Spring 2022 show and released a new campaign for Estée Lauder, for which she's been a global ambassador for just a little over six months. That's impressive for anyone — but it's unsurprising if you've been following the 22-year-old's prolific career, which really exploded when she got Saint Laurent exclusive back in Spring 2017 and now spans everything from runway to long-term brand deals.

In the fall of 2016, a newcomer named Adut Akech walked the Saint Laurent runway in a gold lamé dress and flat boots—a sign that the model would bring a spirited glamour and innate grounded-ness to the fashion firmament. Five years later, gap-toothed Akech is an editorial superstar, with numerous Vogue covers under her belt and a new role as an Estée Lauder ambassador. Her odyssey is well-known: Born in South Sudan, she spent the first seven years of her childhood in a Kenyan refugee camp, before her family relocated to Australia. Akech, now based in Los Angeles, already counts more than a few career highlights, including a turn as the Chanel couture bride—though at 21, she is only getting started. Naomi Campbell, whom she met in 2017 on a Pirelli calendar shoot, is a muse. (“She’s like a second mum to me,” Akech told The Guardian). But it’s her own mother’s cooking that is an eternal comfort. Here, more of the model’s favorite things.

Adut Akech: ‘I was just this shy kid’

All the best supermodels have fairytale origin stories. They are bullied at school: too tall, too flat-chested, too strange-looking. Boys prefer their more comely peers. They grow up believing themselves to be unlovable, even social outcasts. And then an outsider swoops in – perhaps at an airport (Kate Moss), in Primark (Jourdan Dunn), or McDonald’s (Gisele Bündchen). The scout plucks them from obscurity and drops them into a life of international travel, money and acclaim. Their self-doubt is sloughed away like dead skin. Bullies stand chastened. The supermodel triumphs.
