Hari Nef

An actress, a model, writer and activist. Unlike many of her modelling contemporaries Hari Nef embraces her differences, but doesn’t define herself on modelling alone. Through listening to her interview with Jay Buim for Oh Boy, a podcast presented by Man Repeller, I realised having so many different and varied roles isn’t as glamorous as it might seem. What did become apparent was a strong work ethic, speaking passionately about her appearance on the second season of Transparent, an original TV series by Amazon Prime, which hit screens in 2015. Before that Hari Nef made her runway debut walking at New York Fashion Week cast by Hood By Air and Eckhaus Latta for their Spring 2015 collections. She’s since graced the catwalk for Gucci, and more recently appeared alongside photographer Petra Collins and actress Dakota Johnson for Alessandro Michele’s first Gucci fragrance, Bloom. Her written work has been featured by publications like Dazed, Vice, Blackbook and Original Plumbing. Despite what is by all means an impressive CV, there is a certain pressure when you don’t know when you’ll next get work (something which I strongly relate to, and circumstances which can affect any of us). She’s a determined, and incredibly intelligent woman who is sure to go on to do great things.
