Nine-year-old Lilly Uddin lives in Birmingham, UK. Lilly’s journey in modelling began two years ago when her mum Husne responded to a model call using the hashtag #usi. Lilly was signed up shortly after by the agency.
Lilly has had some amazing opportunities since she started modelling, including walking the runway for Iris Rose Children’s couture at the Great British garden fashion show in Hampton Court Palace and walking at Paris Fashion Week where Lilly’s pictures were featured in a number of magazines including Marie Claire and Lazin magazine.
Lilly has worked on campaigns for Kamzo, Benedita and NSPCC and has taken part in a commercial for Loccitane. Last year Lilly got selected to be a Pineapple girl and met Debbie herself! The nine-year-old hopes to be starting projects with Pineapple in the coming months and she has just renewed her third-year contract with her agency USI.

Why did you decide to start modelling? I started two years ago because it sounded like a lot of fun and I wanted to wear lots of cool clothes.
What is the best part about being a model? You get to travel to places like Paris. I love going on planes, visiting new cities wearing lots of different types of clothes and meeting cool people.
Which has been your favourite shoot to date? The shoot with Storme was so much fun. I loved going down to the ‘studio’ on the lower deck of the lighthouse ship, and the shoot where I played ‘catch the hat’ with Nina was so much fun.

Which models do you look up to for inspiration? Winnie Harlow is amazing because she is representing a minority group. Also, my friend Molly Tuer is very talented and a great dancer.
