Meet the next supermodel, Neelam Gill.

While she’s not the first South Asian model to make it big internationally (we think Lakshmi Menon holds that spot), it’s pretty huge (and about time) that a brown model is featured by Burberry, considering how large the South Asian population is in the UK.

We’re looking forward to seeing which runways, besides Burberry’s, the Coventry-born model will walk during the Spring/Summer 2013 shows in February and March. Learn more about the model, including her favourite book by Khaled Hosseini and some of her favourite things (Nando’s tops the list), here.
