Naomi Tara Lievens
Over the past century, multiple jobs and forms of employment were normalized with the culture of women working post the industrial revolution. With their integration into the workforce, women had to make way for themselves in a market overflowing with men and create employment in places where they would dominate. Over centuries, this vision became a reality where a lot of jobs such as modeling, makeup artistry, styling, etc, became women centric industries. Decades later, although these industries have welcomed all genders, women still dominate and are favored when it comes to modelling.
Despite popular belief, modelling isn’t a “feminine” profession that requires a model to just be thin with a pretty face. One could even argue that it’s as tough as an athlete’s career, having to constantly be careful of your diets. Interactions, work outs and body, your schedules, skin, even hair care! The booking processes in modelling are cut throat with no care for a model’s feelings or sentiments. Models have to have nerves of steel with the bravado of a superhero in the face of intense criticism and comments by casters and professionals. From everything to their appearance, walk, and personality being judged, the modeling industry requires one to have nerves of steel as the harsh requirements of the industry chip away at you.
Brave in the ace of immense criticism and an often crippling lifestyle, Naomi Tara Lievens is an up and coming model who has graced the world of modeling with her towering height of 185cm, thin waist, legs that never seem to end, and a bone structure that looks like it was carved by a sculptor. All in all, it would not be a stretch to say she’s out in the world giving Aphrodite, the Goddess of beauty in Greek culture, a run for her money and title! Originally from Milan in Italy, Lievens sure lives up to the name of Italian beauty and flair. Sporting her gorgeous blonde hair, Lievens has been on her mission to bring her name onto the map and become a household name, and she lacks none of the natural beauty to make sure her dreams come true.
