Mar 5, 2016- Harnaam Kaur, a 25-year-old from Slough, Berkshire, has made history by becoming the first bearded woman to hit the ramp for a celebrity designer. Kaur is popularly called the ‘Bearded Dame’.

Kaur walked the ramp last week for American jewellery designer Marianna Harutunian at the Royal Fashion Day in London, realising her most cherished childhood dream, that of becoming a model. The woman, who confidently sports a lush beard and moustache was first noticed when the photographs of her bridal photo-shoot with the London-based Urban Bridesmaid Photography went viral last year.
“I grew up watching America’s next top model, and I admired Tyra Banks wholeheartedly. I always wanted to be like the pretty models, so I remember copying the way they posed and walked. I grew up being told I was too fat, ugly, and disgusting to even model. I was told I’d never walk the runway. I used to look at models and tell myself that I will never ever be able to do what they are doing. I am not pretty enough or beautiful enough and I don’t have the ‘right’ body type. I was laughed at when I said I wanted to model. The joke is on my bullies,” she said.
When she was 11, Kaur was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome, a hormonal condition that makes you have excessive facial hair, so much so that she had to get them removed twice a week.
