This is one of the coolest old school family photos we’ve ever seen.
Model Imaan Hammam is one of our absolute favourites – the Moroccan-Egyptian beauty featured on our list of regional models to watch in August, and you’ll often find us lurking on her Instagram. She’s seriously stylish.
Now, though, she’s posted a beautiful photo of her Egyptian grandparents on their wedding day, and we’re loving it.
For your reference:
How gorgeous is that? Hammam’s grandma looks beautiful, and you’ll note her grandad has a dagger at his hip. We wouldn’t mess with them.
What’s so cool about this photo is what it represents in terms of the ongoing diversification of the fashion industry. While there’s still a long way to go, there was a time when models with this kind of family history were few and far between.
Hammam is rightly proud of her heritage, as we saw back in August when she posted this shot of herself in front of the pyramids.
The pink really adds a little extra, no?
Speaking of throwbacks, though this one is a little more recent, Hammam has also shared a childhood photo of her with her siblings. It’s pretty adorable:
We love seeing a local model succeed. Here’s to many more cover shoots and runway slots for Hammam.
