Nargis Fakhri was a semifinalist during Cycle 3 of ANTM.
Born and raised in Queens, New York, the half-Kashmeri, half-Czech model narrowly missed her chance of making it into the Top Model house during episode 1 of Cycle 3. She also auditioned for Cycle 2, but was unable to make it to the finals.
The aspiring model was memorable because she tangled up her words when introducing herself to panel for the first time. She later expressed that she had no interest in fashion or modeling, just looking at a job modeling as simply a job; a way to make a living. Even though Mr. Jay commented that he liked Nargis’s body type, Tyra seemed unimpressed by Nargis’s lack of interest in the fashion industry at the time. Before the final girls were chosen, Tyra did express that she appreciated Nargis’s upbeat attitude during initial auditions.
Following her audition for the show, Nargis went on to appear in TV commercials/campaigns for Aquafresh, Herbal Essence, Pantene, Subway, Jeep, Bruno Banani Perfume, Ponds and many more globally. She’s also been on the covers of Vanidades and Shape Magazines – to name a few.
Nargis is currently signed with Ford Models in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, San Francisco and Miami, NOVA Models in New Zealand, Leni’s Models in London, ANC models in Hamburg, Scoop Models in Denmark, La Agencia in Spain, Mannequin Studio in Singapore, SG Planet Models in India and CESD for television.
At present, she is working in South East Asia with an emphasis on India.
