• Meet Model and "Secrets" Video Star Hannah Donker

    A model hailing from Canada, Hannah Donker was chosen by Maxim as a breakout star in 2016. She caught Maxim’s attention by posing for Elle Canada and other high profile magazines. She also served as the face of one of Garnier’s larger ad campaigns.

    She has been modeling since 2014 after she caught the attention of a modeling scout who found her on Facebook. As a result, Hannah moved to New York City to pursue her career.

     

    Hannah Donker & Wilhelmina Models

    Hannah has made a career for herself by signing with Wilhelmina Models. She may be best known for her performance in the “Secrets” music video. The video stars the song’s artist, Abel Tesfaye, alongside Hannah, who plays the role of his girlfriend. The premise of the video is that she is talking in her sleep and is confessing her secrets: that she has been dating another man. The video features Hannah spread out on a bed tossing and turning in her sleep because she’s dreaming of someone else. Abel looks on, angry that she is dreaming of the man she is cheating on him with.

     

     

    Facial Yoga and More Beauty Secrets

    Aside from her modeling, Hannah is also known for practicing an unusual beauty routine. She engages in something known as facial yoga, which no doubt contributes to her good looks. Hannah has explained that the first step in the process is to use a hydrating cream to tone and cleanse the skin. She explains step two as pinching the skin on the face, moving from the forehead down to the bottom of the chin and both cheeks. Repeating this for 30 to 45 seconds finishes step two of facial yoga. Step three is to lock fingers from both hands together and use them to gently push and pull on the skin. The fourth step in the process is to use one’s fingertips to tap on the outer edges of the face. The fifth and final step is to use an additional skin hydrating product and massage it into the skin under the chin.

    Hannah confessed that she started giving herself facial yoga at home because she always gets a facial done from a professional while she is traveling to various locations for modeling shoots.

  • Will Model Leyna Bloom Walk the Victoria's Secret Runway?

    Dancer and model Leyna Bloom has made major strides within the transgendered community. Though she works as a female model, she was born a male.

    Meet Model Leyna Bloom

    After Leyna’s mother was deported from the United States, while Leyna was still a baby, her father continued to raise her. When she was in the sixth grade, Leyna took up dancing and joined Chicago’s Joffrey Ballet. By the time she was 14 years old, she was performing with Misty Copeland as part of the American Ballet Theater. Interestingly enough, she was given a dance scholarship courtesy of the Chicago Academy of the Arts, but failed to finish her studies because the Academy considered her to be a boy and therefore wouldn’t allow her to perform as a girl. Instead, Leyna went on to complete her studies in 2008 at the Chicago Academy of the Arts. Prior to working as a model she worked at Manhattan, New York’s NoMo SoHo restaurant, where she was a hostess.

    Potential Top Victoria's Secret Model? 

    As a trailblazer for the transgendered community, Leyna gained much attention for walking the runway at 2017’s New York Fashion Week where she modeled for the brand Chromat. This brand is known for having transgendered models represent them. Also in 2017, Leyna appeared on the cover of the October issue of Vogue India. However, she was incorrectly identified in the magazine as being fellow transgendered model Geena Rocero.

    Leyna has also set her sights on becoming a Victoria’s Secret angel. She even ran a public campaign to make herself their first ever transgendered model. Leyna feels that Victoria’s Secret models should be more diverse than they have been so far.

     

     

    Model on a Mission

    Leyna is passionate about fighting for equal rights for the LGBTQ community. She fondly recalls having attended Chicago Pride events as a teenager and has stated that she felt liberated while she was there.

    Part of her efforts to fight for equality included participating in a photoshoot outside of the Stonewall Inn. She did it to pay tribute to everyone who had previously fought for LGBTQ rights.
