It Girl: Digital Darling Saada Ahmed Dishes on Her Personal Style and Beauty Must-Haves

This 30-year-old has modeled for major fashion brands and is one of the brains behind the Everyday People Brunch series.

GOING WITH THE FLOW: “My clothes reflect my mood, which depends on the day. Weather is a huge factor. I typically feel more creative in warmer weather.”

REPPIN’ FOR THE BROWN GIRLS: “When I was growing up, I never really saw girls like me in ads. As much as I don’t like putting myself out there, I think it’s my duty to use my platform to show young Black girls that we do exist and use my voice to inspire them.”

PRIZED POSSESSIONS: “A pair of bell-bottom pants that I had made in Nairobi last year. I picked out the fabric at the market with my mom and she took me to the tailor. And a pair of Nike Flyknits. I ran my first 15K in those shoes—very memorable.”

Thanks always @Jcrew 🌸🌺🌼 more fun stuff to come 🙂

Happy national stripes day! 🎯 @jcrew
