Name:
Neelam Johal

Agency:
Models 1

Age:
18

Height:
5’10″

Place of Origin:
Coventry, UK

Ethnic Origin:
Indian

Birthsign:
Taurus (it fits me perfectly!)

How discovered:
Scouted then had a walk-in at the agency

Favorite things:
Shopping, Nandos, spending time with my sisters and exercising (it makes me feel good!)

Favorite music, band:
I’ve always loved rap and R&B. Currently I’m listening to Drake’s new album (Nothing Was The Same), Kanye’s new album (Yeezus) and Jay Z’s new album (Magna Carter Holy Grail).

Favorite movie, tv show:
My favourite TV show has to be Keeping up with the Kardashians (or any of the spin offs), The Real Housewives of Atlanta and The Great British Bake Off. I’m not a film lover because I hate sitting down for that amount of time, but I’m obsessed with The Godfather trilogy.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
In terms of clothing, my favourite designers are Burberry, Alexander Wang and Balenciaga. My favourite fragrance is YSL Elle (I’ve worn it for years and it’s my signature scent), and my favourite beauty product is MAC Snob (lipstick) because it’s the perfect baby pink shade.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
Studying Psychology at university.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Reading! Since a young age I’ve always loved reading books and I’ve never grown out of it. It’s a form of escapism.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
That definitely has to be walking as a global exclusive for Burberry, because it was my first ever show and it was amazing! Plus, Christopher Bailey is genuinely one of the sweetest guys I’ve ever met, so he made me feel very welcomed into the Burberry family.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
I like the fact that its small because when I go home it’s completely different from London, for example when I go to bed its completely silent outside, which is nice after you spend time in a place full of hustle and bustle.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I have always loved Burberry, so now I’ve ticked that off my list I’d LOVE to do a Burberry campaign. But in terms of fashion week, I think it would be fun to walk for Chanel in Paris, because the shows/collection are always amazing.

Place you would love to visit:
Brazil, New York and the Maldives!

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
The current book I’m reading because it’s by my all time favourite author (Khaled Hosseini – And The Mountains Echoed)

    As soon as I seen her I was obsessed, she’s defiantly needed in the industry right now. And since your Taurus.. and am a Capricorn… you know they are a prefect match… lol

    I was wondering who was the Indian girl at the Burberry’s show. Now I see it, she is perfect.

    The kinds of features you don’t see all in one quite often. From hair to thick, well-shaped eyebrows to big eyes to a delicate nose to plump lips on refreshing skin. Love.
