Who is Amina Blue?
Amina Blue is an American fashion model, who first came to the public’s attention after walking for Kanye West’s fashion label Yeezy during the New York Fashion Week in 2015. She has also appeared on Tyga’s music video of “1 of 1”. Having started her career as an urban model featuring in music videos, she could have never thought of becoming a regular model because of her height and being covered with tattoos. But everything changed after collaborating with Kanye West as a muse for his apparel line Yeezy. Amina has since gained a lot of attention in the modeling industry. She is a vegan and advocates it to her fans.
Amina Blue was born on the 2nd of April 1993, in Queens, New York City, New York, United States of America. She’s currently 27 years old.

Very less is known about Amina’s family, education, and her early life. Amina was born to a Pakistani father and a German mother. She has three siblings, two older and one younger.
Her older police officer brother died in a motorcycle accident while she was young. Her older sister is an orthodontist while her younger brother works as a production assistant.
She showed an early interest in modeling, however, her parents were against the choice of her career, especially her father being an Islam. So, she put her education first, and received a degree in education, and then moved on to focus on her modeling career.
In fact, Blue isn’t her real last name. She refuses to tell anyone what her actual name is, but the moniker “Blue” refers to her blue eyes. She isn’t close to her father and her parents are now divorced.

Meteoric Rise to Stardom
Amina Blue had always wanted to be a model from a young age. Coming from a devoted Muslim family, her father was against her wish and wanted her to be a normal Muslim girl. She took her dreams seriously and submitted her photos to Face Time Agency, the New York-based modeling agency at age 19 when she heard of a casting call for a music video.
That’s how Blue started her career as a video vixen. Her early works include appearing in Busta Rhymes’ “Thank You” featuring West, Q-Tip, and Lil Wayne, as well as in Rich Gang’s “Everyday” (which was never released). Her other music video credits include Future and A$AP Ferg.
Blue’s major breakthrough came in 2015 when she was booked for Kanye West fashion line Yeezy’s debut runway show. She walked down the ramp along with featured models Naomi Campbell, Veronica Webb, and Liya Kebede during New York Fashion Week, held in February 2015. She walked for the label for the next two seasons, including the runway show held at Madison Square Garden in New York City in February 2016, which is her most-watched fashion show.
While walking the runway during the Yeezy Season 4 show, she stopped halfway, took off her high-heeled shoes, and continued to walk barefoot. She later said that she wasn’t comfortable with the shoe and hence she took them off.
