Spend 5: Duckie Thot

We all have model stalks. You know, that one girl that convinces you that aliens are real. After all, who is relly born blessed with long limbs, perfect skin and lips that leave you asking Kylie who? Hardly seems fair. With an out of this world name, Duckie Thot is just that. The South Sudanese, Australian model is the girl you simply don’t miss. Her presence demands attention in the most subtle yet sexy of ways. She is both edgy and graceful and at just 20 well on her way to dominating the modelling world. We decided to spend 5 with the rising star who also happens to love a cappuccino and NYC. We knew it was love…


Name: Duckie

Occupation: Model

I was scouted: At the Australian Next Top Model auditions when I was 15. I was too young at the time so I auditioned the following year when I was eligible to compete

Describe the journey so far: I’ve experienced a whole heap so far! From modelling on reality TV to getting into the real world of modelling, then managing myself to signing with Pride Models and now signing with an agency in NYC! The past 3 years have been a roller coaster of events and I’ve enjoyed growing and learning. Can’t wait for the journey to continue

Favourite campaign to date: I recently shot Camilla’s recent Jambo Jambo campaign which was sooo much fun. We laughed for two days straight, which always makes work easier!

I would love to work with: Mario Testino

From hair and makeup I’ve learnt: Sometimes less is more

On getting photoshoot ready: I always have to throw on a face mask the night before just so I feel fresh in the morning and I’m ready to go

I look up to: Angelina Jolie

Favourite city: New York

Next destination: New York

Model muse: Kate Moss

Daily uniform: As it’s winter at moment it’s looking more like a pants, big trench coat and comfy boots

Style muse: Margaret Zhang

On health and fitness: Just be kind and listen to your body! Many people make the mistake that staying fit is hard. You would be surprised that the basics of staying fit and healthy are so simple: drink water, eat clean and stay active. You’ll see results in no time 🙂

I couldn’t live without: Coconut oil, coconut water – coconut everything

Always in my bag: Paw paw

Best childhood memory: Our family holidays to Apollo Bay, I had the best time there as a kid

Drink of choice: Esprezzo martinis – because alcoholic coffee is the closest thing to heaven on earth

Weekends look like: Some form of exercise, a brunch date thrown in, followed by a chill movie night with my family

Favourite hang out: by the beach

My life in 3 words: Cappuccino on almond

I am looking forward to: Next fashion week season in NYC

Life motto: Obstacles are what you see when you take your eye off the goal
