You’ve probably seen hundreds or thousands of models throughout your life, be it on TV, newspapers, magazines or web portal.
Among the things people look for in a model is their unique look that’ll make them unforgettable.
And this model is the walking definition of unforgettable – Nyakim Gatwech.
World record holder
The Sudanese model went viral after some hailed her for having the “darkest skin on the planet”, and that earned her a spot in the Guinness World Records.
However, the world record is hoax, as Guinness says they do not “monitor records for skin tone”, but her beauty is indeed 100 per cent real.
The 27-year-old model moved to the US after fleeing the civil war in Kenya with her parents when she was 14, but sadly lost two of her siblings in the process.
Nyakim, who is also known as the ‘Queen of Dark’, has modeled for Calvin Klein and L’Oreal, just to name a few, and has also graced a handful of fashion magazine covers.
