Amina Blue

Kanye and Carine Roitfeld's model of the moment

  • Amina Blue

    After appearing in music videos for artists like Future and 50 Cent, Amina Blue was selected by Kanye West to be the muse for his Yeezy brand. She’s gone on to model in all of his shows, serve as a model for the brand, and be featured in his zine. Kanye introduced Amina to Carine Roitfeld, editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, who has handpicked the model for stories in CR Fashion Book and a special-edition book, CR Girls.

    Did you ever go through any struggles while pursuing modeling? No one ever talks about it , but just wanted to ask. Also how did you get your first agent?

      @Tasha95 Finding my place in this industry was tough. I'm in the middle between different categories of modeling so finding my place took a little bit of time. There's dozens of other examples of struggle that everyone goes through.. it's all about perseverance! I met @sessionizill through a casting for a music video. We've been working ever since.

    i feel like once you do something right, help people, then people think/assume that you are perfect, then they try to pick up everything about you that they find out you are doing wrong.. i feel like that's what happened with you, i remember reading some of your comments after the tyga video n all that and they were so mean it just hurt. you have helped me so much just to be me and find my highest self. thank you. hopefully some day the masses will praise more the ones that help us than the ones who don't.

    How did your stance on animal rights and veganism develop and evolve? What advice do you have for someone trying to learn about those issues?

      @akinneston I started watching YouTube videos of where our food really comes from. Even though it was hard to watch, I got really interested in it, and just kept wanting to learn more. If you would like to learn more about these issues... read! read! read! Be open to different perspectives, and be willing to act upon the information you obtain.

    What tattoos do you have? Who did them? What do they mean?

      @jbettinson I lost count of how many tattoos I have. It's basically full sleeves at this point. @Boogstar is my current tattoo artist. Not all of the tattoos mean anything. Some are more significant than others. Maybe one day I'll go through what they all mean, individually.

      @Vanellashawty I'm actually a grandma. If I don't HAVE to go out, I don't. I like being inside, smoking trees, and planning my next move. And play with my dogs. :-)

    What makes it all worth it for you? As people who dwell in the arts, whether it be music, fashion, photography & film etc. What gives you the spark to do it all? It's deeper than selling a product. Subtract the business side of it, how does the art keep you motivated and thinking outside the box?

      @Nomzz Carine is a beautiful soul. One of the few genuine people that I've met who has accepted me from the beginning. She's also incredibly inspiring to me.

    Hey Amina, I wanted to ask if you weren't a model but would you be doing for a career?

      @tamaramariahbrown Good question! I would probably be doing something related to animals or traveling (or both!).

    Thank you for your response. Also I wanted to know as currently I work in the media and fashion. How would someone be able to work for you, as I know you have an amazing shoe line coming soon. :)

    Hi Amina I've always wondered when did you realize you wanted to be a model? Also you really inspire me ❤

      @savara244 I feel like most girls growing up aspire to be a model, or at least take pretty pictures. It kinda just grew from there. Thank you so much. I hope I continue to do so.
