First Ever Pakistani Models For Burberry

Asian faces in mainstream modelling is extremely rare, so it is no wonder that adorable little Laila Naim, who is the latest child model of Burberry, has gained so much popularity and attracted so much attention. At the tender age of just five, London based Laila has become the youngest and first ever Pakistani to model for the 159 year old British high end label. When talking about her little darling, her mother Sadia Siddiqui, who is also a model, explained: 'She is a natural. At her first shoot, the shoot's creative director asked if she had been doing this for a long time'. She definitely looks the part in the images released, wearing a signature Burberry trench coat, with her loveable, cheeky grin and lovely long locks - which is apparently the reason why Laila calls herself a 'brown Rapunzel'.

Winning over the panel at a Burberry audition, it seems the five year old was meant for the limelight, since she attends a theatre academy and has been singing, acting and dancing since the age of three. Her photo when posted on Burberry's Instagram got a magnanimous 78,600 likes in just four days, which speaks volumes about her popularity already, which is way more than what other posts have received. Other high profile models who have worked for Burberry are Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss and Romeo Beckham, so Laila really has kick-started her career at the very top, and we do hope she soars even higher with her whole life ahead of her year.
