Yanks Can’t Handle How Much ‘ANTM’ Alum Duckie Looks Like A Bratz Doll

Cast your minds back to the 2013 season of Australia’s Next Top Model. It’s the year that gave us the striking beauty of Australian/South Sudanese gal Duckie Thot, who has since gone on to take the fashion world by storm and genuinely forged a solid global modelling career.

Duckie made headlines this week when she uploaded this pic to her Instagram, promptly sending the internet into a tailspin.

The reaction has mainly centred around just how much Duckie looks like an IRL Barbie doll.

We’re fairly sure there’s a wee bit of filtering going on with this pic, but damn, gurl is giving those people who get tons of plastic surgery to look like Barbie a mega run for their money. Her other pics have a bit more of a lowkey vibe, but her babe’n face is absolutely doll-like.

Duckie herself acknowledged the internet frenzy with this LOL tweet, likening herself instead to a Bratz doll.

If her name sounds familiar outside of ANTM, it’s prob because Duckie is also a strong voice for women of colour in the modelling industry. 
Last year, she called out fellow model Winnie Harlow for talking shit about her natural hair, commenting “LMFAO! WHAT ARE THOOOOOSEEEEE cauliflower ass head” over a pic of Duckie’s Dinosaur Designs campaign. It led to Duckie making this statement.

I remember shooting this Dinosaur Design campaign just before coming out here to the states. They called my agent at the time and asked if I was comfortable to shoot a campaign with my natural hair. She already knew what I was thinking but told me I needed to compromise sometimes. I won’t lie, I was extremely hesitant. I’ve never really had a good experience with my natural hair and modelling in Australia before. I remember on top model on one of the episodes I had to cornrow my own hair. I was extremely upset and embarrassed that they “didn’t know how” to cornrow my natural hair when at the end of the day that’s their job. I sat in front of the mirror silently crying before my shoot doing my own hair, cameras rolling while all the other girls had hairstylists, shit scared I was going to get eliminated because a few “hairstylists” didn’t know how to do their job. It’s not fun being bullied for something you can’t control and to have a top model woman of colour who I thought encouraged acceptance and self love call me out for rocking my natural hair, isn’t cool at all. Throw all the shade you want, but you played yourself with your cute little remark.

Duckie’s currently over in Paris generally killing it on the catwalks – and clearly gunning for title of ‘most successful Oz ANTM alum ever’.
