Rapid Fire


Zara got her big break in the modelling world posing for bigwigs, like Sana Safinaz and Generation. Tall, dusky and often compared with the veteran model Iraj, Zara has taken over the fashion industry in a very short time. Zara gives Sana Zehra an inside scoop on whether models just nibble and don’t eat

How did you start modeling?

It was by sheer accident. Nighat Apa from Depilex introduced me to Rizwan Ul Haq (musician/actor) and there was no looking back after that.

What was your first big break in the industry?

A Sana Safinaz campaign

What is your dream modeling job?

To walk alongside Gigi Hadid and Naomi Campbell

How do you deal with all the travelling required to be a model? How do you cure jet-lag?

Try to catch up on my sleep and drink a lots of water and eat fresh seasonal fruit. I try to stay away from sodium rich foods.

When you’re not busy modeling, what are some of your favourite things to do?

Spending time with family

Eating a lot

Binge sleeping.

What’s your favourite snack?

To be honest we models live on snacks. (Laughs)

A lot of models suffer from eating disorders. How do you think we can eliminate body shaming?

I believe one should also eat healthy, stay fit and think positive. Nothing works better than that. If we encourage these three elements and think fit and healthy instead of thin we can rid of body shaming very easily.

How do you deal with the cruel comments on Facebook?

Ignore and delete!

What’s one of the most interesting shoots that you’ve done?

My first campaign with Generation, done by none other than Abdullah Haris
