This week’s model to watch is Dianne Beharry from Trinidad & Tobago. She just started modeling back in March, and everything has changed rapidly for her. Her decision was strategic, as she didn’t want to be a runway model as she is short.
The always upbeat Dianne linked up with renowned Trini photographer J. Hamilton for her portfolio, and it has turned out so well, since she has gone viral on social platforms. Dianne has appeared in several magazines, including ET&T and OMG Hotty.
Dianne is of Indian-Trini descent, hence her unique appearance, which has a taste from both sides of culture. From my interaction with her, she came across as down to earth and sweet, a visionary, caring person. Her liking for Nicki Minaj has made the rapper one of her muses, something she fondly tells me about often.
When Nicki Minaj was in Trinidad shooting for a new video, she informed me about it, and that made our rapport even stronger as I had just interviewed Nicki Minaj’s BFF.
I can envision Dianne gaining international recognition and modeling for top tier brands, and a possible breakthrough in the Americas because of how she positions herself as a brand, which is something that separates true talent from the rest.
Check out her amazing pictures and stay tuned for Part 2 of this feature!
