These vidcaps of supermodel Natasha Hussain were taken from a Shirin Hassan fashion show covered by FTV Pakistan. It’s no secret why Natty (Natasha Hussain) was chosen to be the official mascot of PakiKaki.
She is, IMO, by far the most sexy and glamorous supermodel in Pakistan today. And it’s not just her awesome figure. She is also blessed with the most elegant and delicate features. A work of art, from head-to-toe.
Seeing her, one can’t help but be reminded of the couplet, “Kinna sohna tenu rubb ney banaya, Dil karay vekhda rawan”. In these particular caps, she sorta looks like an Egyptian queen, surveying her domain.
Speaking of surveying, kindly survey her bikini top. The most alluring feature of which, are the adorable bits of her tits which have been left out in the cold. I can’t think of any model who could’ve pulled-off this daring outfit with such style and cool confidence as our Natty. The clear alabaster skin, the svelte body and the coiffed hair. She simply looks ravishing up there.
One can only hope that this trend takes off and in the next Shaadi season, we have aunties running around in such bikini blouses around the buffet table, where uncles are trying to gorge themselves with breast pieces. Let’s hope they don’t run out of chicken.
Growing up, for me there was only one real supermodel, Paulina Porizkova. She combined beauty, elegance, charm, purity and above all that inherent sense of quiet confidence and entitlement that screams “I am gorgeous, worship me! you mortal”. She made a movie with Tom Selleck, Her Alibi, and she turned out to be just as charming and pretty in person. Natty reminds me of Paulina and judging strictly on the established ideals of beauty (features, proportion, charm, personality, elan, etc), Natty easily comes out on top.
Today, most of the ramp models appear to have a toothache and/or seem to be working under extreme duress. Not Natasha. In most of her appearances on the ramp, she smiles warmly and takes the time to acknowledge the crowd. She appears comfortable on stage, supremely secure in her beauty and the effect it’s having on the audience.
That’s unlike the ex-models Iffat Umer (hag), and Z.Q. (nag) who have expressed their derision for ramp modeling in Pakistan and how it ‘objectifies’ women (must have been reading an old copy of Cosmo). Natasha seems to get off on all the attention and admiration that comes her way, from a gratified audience.
I still remember the day somebody sent me pictures of Natasha Hussain. I could not believe that somebody so pretty and sexy, fragile and fresh could be from Pakistan. Back in the Dark Ages, we either produced models who looked guilty and scared, or lollywood starlets who looked gaudy and glazed. All the pretty and polished Pak babes back then, were hiding up there in the attic, with Anne Frank.
But it takes more than beauty to be a sexy supermodel in Pakistan. Natty is also brave, honest and generous to embrace her sexuality and willing to share it with (esp this part of) the world. Not in the traditional cheap and vulgar fashion that makes you cringe, but with poise and pizzazz that lifts the spirit and makes you glad to be alive.
In an interview to DAWN, she claims to be a fan of Enid Blyton and her kid seems to be a fan as well. Anybody who likes Enid Blyton, is alright in my book. Here’s the video, hope you enjoy.
