Do you remember the little princess who broke the internet for looking just like millionaire singer and entrepreneur, Rihanna? Well, this time around, the mini-Rihanna has landed herself a big new modeling deal.

7-year-old Ala’a Skyy is now a model for the natural texture hairline, The Mane Choice, at BeautyconLA. CEO & Founder of the brand, Courtney Adeleye, announced, “Not only does she have an amazing attitude & work ethic at such a young age, she also loves her hair! She understands the benefits of using great products. It’s amazing!”

Mane Choice, the natural hair-care brand selected the 7-year-old as their newest ambassador after she captured the attention of Rihanna who posted her mini-doppelganger on her Instagram page.


This announcement comes as a little surprise as Ala’a had already won the hearts of many across the world with her striking resemblance to the favorite “Bad Gal”.

In a video she shared on Instagram while singing, Ala’a shared her excitement with the caption: “I can’t wait to use my Tropical Moringa,” while holding two products from the Tropical Moringa Sweet Oil & Honey Endless Moisture Collection.

“One day you are using your favorite products because you love them and the next day you are using your favorite products and become their newest ambassador at the same time,” the caption read. “Dreams really do come true, if you believe YOU deserve them!”


Already, supermodel Tyra Banks, through her newest project, Modelland, has extended an invitation to Ala’a to be part of the project.

Meanwhile, Banks is still “looking for 14 people from the age of 18 to 50, 60 something.”
