Sandal season is in full force, but some of the most stylish stars are zigging while everyone else is zagging. Instead of the tried-and-true sandal/dress combo, summer dresses and boot outfits have been populating street style images. Turns out, there’s no need to wait until fall to wear those combat boots.

Adut Akech on being the representation she once longed for

Adut Akech might be one of the most in-demand models in fashion today, but she hasn’t always felt as welcome in the beauty space. “I didn’t see anybody that looked like me”, she tells me over Zoom, speaking of her upbringing in Australia, where her family arrived as refugees when she was seven.

Adut Akech On Her Extensive Cleansing Routine And Representation In The Beauty Industry

If you know fashion, you know Adut Akech. Since her 2016 debut in Anthony Vaccarello’s first Saint Laurent runway show, she’s walked for every major house you can think of: Valentino, Dior, Chanel, Givenchy, Versace, and Prada, among others. Now, she’s taking over the beauty realm as the newest global brand ambassador for iconic skin care and makeup brand Estée Lauder. “I remember… I would see these makeup and fragrance ads, and I would think to myself, ‘Could that be me one day?’” Akech says, reflecting on her new title. “But it's not something that I saw happening for me. I didn't see myself represented in the beauty space. Throughout time that has obviously changed, and it is me today.”

From Fashion Darling to Global Beauty Ambassador: Adut Akech Is the New Face of Estée Lauder

When Adut Akech began modeling professionally at the tender age of 16, she had an unfortunate introduction to the industry. “My hair got burned,” the now 21-year-old South Sudan–born runway star recalls of a time not long ago when having a like-minded hairstylist or makeup artist of color on set or backstage was rare. “Our hair doesn’t need heat and everyone started straightening my hair. So I shaved my head—I went bald,” Akech continues of a formative beauty decision that both empowered her and helped cement her status on the catwalk. “Now, I know to say, ‘No, this is not the right shade for my skin tone,’ or ‘No, this does not work with my hair.’ I want new faces to be vocal about this stuff, too. That’s one thing I want to see change.” Her platform to help exact this kind of advancement just got a whole lot bigger: Today, Akech becomes the newest global brand ambassador of Estée Lauder.

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.
