Model Neelam Gill made headlines when she walked the ramp for Burberry in 2013, and became the first Indian-origin woman to feature in the luxury brand’s campaign the following year. Later, she added another feather to her cap when Abercrombie & Fitch signed her up as the face of the brand.
Only 21 years of age, Neelam signed up with a modelling agency at only 14, and has bagged big ticket ramp shows in recent time. She walked for Kanye West at his Yeezy show, and apparently, former One Direction star Zayn Malik was once smitten by her. It’s not hard to see why. We stalked Neelam’s Instagram feed for some of her hottest pictures.

#CAMPAIGN for @blinkbrowbar! So excited to finally share this news. I feel so honoured to be the face of the brand and also the ambassador for their 10 year anniversary. I can’t wait for you guys to see the brow kit I designed with them! Anyone who knows me understands how obsessed I am with my brows so this collab is a dream come true!

Spent my day in NYC shooting with the sweetest team for @Abercrombie! Sometimes it’s good to take a step back and reflect on life… Just a few years ago I had a part time job in retail working on the Hollister shop floor! I would get paid £25 for a 5 hour shift and I worked my ass off! I spent two years working for that company whilst I was still studying in school and I’m so grateful that now I’m being flown out to NYC to shoot for them!!! I’ll NEVER forget where I came from and I hope this inspires you guys to follow your dreams! I’m just a girl from Coventry living a life I used to pray for and I’ll never stop being appreciative. PS; Thank you to the A&F team for the care package! 😘🙌 #BehindTheScenes #Campaign A photo posted by NEELAM GILL (@neelamkg) on
#Anthropologie campaign shot in #India! I was surprisingly nervous about this trip and travelling to India alone but it’s one of my favourite places I’ve visited so far with my job and I can’t wait to go back sometime soon! 💛
