A woman from Southern Sudan ranked the most beautiful woman on earth and is currently the most expensive model. Due to the scarcity of available Black models in Africa, she is able to charge $15,000 dollars for every hour of fashion photography.
Nyakim Gatwech is the highest paid model and she is from Sudan. Some call her the “queen of dark.” Gatwech is a 24 year old supermodel who is as bold as she is beautiful. At a time when when racism is at its height since the last 40 years, Nyakim Gatwech emerges as the most beautiful woman in the world.
Some darker skinned people are going after skin brightening and whitening creams to be accepted as beautiful according to European standards, however, this South Sudanese model is embracing her dark complexion with pride. Her gorgeous dark skin has earned her the nickname ‘Queen of Dark’ and it just goes to prove the mysterious and wondrous beauty of dark skin.
Twenty-four-year-old Nyakim Gatwech is as strong as is she beautiful. The model, who now lives in Minneapolis, is on a journey to promote skin positivity and self-acceptance. Along with her gorgeous photos, which she shares with her 89,000-plus followers on Instagram, she also sends out inspirational messages, especially to women who are struggling to be comfortable in their own skin.
People even went ahead to ask her why is it that she is so dark, but Gatwech took it with a pinch of salt. One of her Instagram posts read, “Some people stay Snapping me asking me why am I so dark? How on earth they expect me to answer that question? Beside the fact that I’m bless with melanin and I love all this darkness.”
Her self-confidence is refreshing, especially at a time when people have major body image issues. These words of hers are really inspirational, “My skin absorbs the suns rays and my hair defies gravity. Now you can’t tell me I’m not magical!”
