Model Talulah-Eve burst onto the scene of the fashion world in 2017 when she competed in series 11 of Britain’s Next Top Model, hosted by the lovely Abbey Clancy.

As well as being the first trans model on the show, she has since gone on to achieve many milestones.

From starring in a documentary alongside Reggie Yates, launching her own clothing line, to starring in Ann Summers campaigns, there is nothing this girl can't do.

Most recently we have seen the star pose up a storm in PrettyLittleThing's swimwear campaign where she looked absolutely incredible.

We got the chance to sit down with the model of the hour to not only chat about her killer style but to also discuss trans issues and Black History Month.

As the month of October marks Black History Month, we asked the model what it means to her.

"Black History Month means freedom to me! It means celebrating all our role models and the important steps we’ve taken to get to where we are now," Talulah told us.

"Our fight still goes on but we’re here loud and proud, and so we should celebrate that and the amazing voices that have helped us get to where we are now."

Talulah went on to say: "I feel like trans women and especially trans women of colour could be better represented in the fashion and beauty industry."

"We need to normalise seeing trans people in fashion and beauty, rather than just the ones represented in campaigns that we’re used to seeing here and there."

Talulah is always seen on the red carpets of events such the 2021 National Television Awards where she stunned in a monochrome mini dress and her signature slicked back ponytail.

Discussing her style, the 27-year-old said: "My style is bold, colourful and quirky. A mix between Zendaya and Rihanna."

Many young people look up to Talulah, for not only her brilliant sense of style, but for representing the black community and the LGBTQIA+ community.

She is also a great example of how hard work pays off to achieve your goals so we of course asked what her biggest tip would be: "My advice on getting into the fashion industry is to NEVER GIVE UP. If it seems there is no road for you to take, make your own. Don’t wait for opportunities to come, go and make them."

"I always have goals for the future. I have a skincare range coming out soon, so I’m working really hard on that. The rest you’ll have to wait and see."

Whilst we're eager to try out the beauty's new skincare collection, we also can't wait to see what project Talulah works on next as we're sure it will be a hit like all her previous endeavours.
