Transgender model Hari Nef signed to IMG

All you need to know about Hari Nef.

American transgender model-actress-writer Hari Nef has just been signed to IMG.

The modelling industry has been making huge leaps when it comes to diversity. Andreja Pejic recently snatched up a Make Up For Ever campaign and Brazilian transgender model, Lea T, was announced as the face of Redken Chromatics Haircolor.

Hari Nef will be the second transgender model signed to IMG, after Dutch model, Valentijn de Hingh.

So here’s what you need to know about Hari.

She made her runway debut last year at NYFW, walking for Hood By Air and Eckhaus Latta. She’s an Ivy League grad from Columbia University and studied Drama and Theatre Arts. She’s written for Vice, Original Plumbing, BlackBook and Dazed, and writes a sex column for Adult. She also topped the Dazed Reader’s 100 list this year—an extensive list of style culture pioneers. Hari performed at Art Basel Miami, acted in an Anton Chekov play and wants to be the first trans-woman to win an Academy Award.

What a superstar.
