Meet The Young and Successful Model, Aminat Ayinde [PHOTOS]

It is funny how every young girl out there wants to become a model, even the grownups that are busy in other industries are still interested in walking on the runway. Let’s analyze this people, “the female model” happens to be a very fragile but sophisticated individual who is capable of luring and attracting the interest of any fashion designer out there with her flawless attitude and poses in front of the camera. You can’t help but be marveled by her gracious movement on the runway; her eye-catching build makes you appreciate this beautiful creation, which sometimes gets you drooling. That’s the “pleasant” or “unpleasant” effect you are likely to have when you are around Aminat Ayinde.


Although the youngster is not a household name yet, she is gradually building her career in the modeling world since her big-break as she was one of the 13 contestants who were featured in the 12th cycle of most recognized modeling show on the planet, America’s Next Top Model. Unlike most ladies who have set out to become a model from day one, it wasn’t the case for Aminat; she said in a recent interview that: “Fashion was not on my radar before ANTM. My career pursuit was becoming a physical therapist. When I was recruited for the show I was a student at William Paterson University majoring in biology and African American studies. I assumed my path in life was to get an advanced degree, get a good job and have a comfortable life.”


Since the conclusion of the show in 2009, the bright young model stood her ground in the fashion industry having been featured on several runway shows like Mercedes Fashion Week in New York, Arise Africa show at Bryant Park, Emilio Sosa on Project Runway amongst others. Her consistency and creativity in front of the camera and runway has made it obvious to the world that she is destined for this chosen career.


The Nigerian is a success story and a role model for aspiring models. Without an agency or formal representative, she has been featured in some of the top magazines like Ebony, Seventeen, Essence, Genevieve and WD magazines; also she has worked with top fashion designers like Heatherette, Supima, Sergio Davila, Ahn Young Chee, LaQuan Smith, Korto Momolu, Zulu Rose, David Tlale, Lanre DaSilva-Ajayi and many others. She achieved these all by herself, which is proof that you really don’t need a modeling agency to rule the modeling world.
