Interesting looking girl, kind looks like a
Bollywood actress.

which one. kareena kapoor or Katrina kaif..

annfast August 12, 2014 at 8:36 am

Many Saudi Arabians have african blood.

susual_99 April 4, 2015 at 12:52 am

Not necessarily. Judging by her looks, she looks more Pakistani and Indo-Aryan rather than Arabian which are Semitic. Her father is most probably a Pakistani 100% by ethnicity but immigrated to Saudi Arabia. People of Saudi Arabia would never mix with Pakistani immigrants. Not to sound racist, but the Pakistani people who live in Saudi Arabia come to the Kingdom as domestic workers or Taxi drivers. Saudi Arabians wouldnt mix with anyone, especially nowadays, as most Saudis are filthy rich, they would only mix with certain and well known tribes.

She doesn’t look black at all. She’s too pretty to be black. I’m not racist btw.

ssempre July 6, 2014 at 3:39 pm

You are racist if you say stuff like “she’s too pretty to be black.” Plain and simple.

ashash July 6, 2014 at 3:59 pm

Agreed, ssempre.

yrotsih August 7, 2014 at 9:00 pm

beauty has nothing to do with color ,culture, or nation beauty is beauty .I can’t see you, but I’m aware you’re the true definition of ugly .

WTF August 12, 2014 at 12:34 am

nina January 10, 2015 at 6:21 pm

They didn’t say she was black, are you blind? Saoudi arabian and pakistani isn’t black and black women are beautiful

Nikki June 8, 2014 at 3:35 pm


she is irish, english, welsh, lithuanian, egyptian, and possibly a tiny bit of yemeni

Nikki June 8, 2014 at 3:35 pm

Oh and german!

yrotsih August 7, 2014 at 9:04 pm

Nikki are you sure she “practices” all of those cultures and why must you say “possibly…yemini” that’s a racists assumption .

aroxysimon June 8, 2014 at 3:10 pm

she probs has bedouin in her, that’s why she looks a bit african. news-flash bedouins are still saudi

shobohunter June 2, 2014 at 3:39 pm

it is not my problem
if her mom screwd a cat or donkey .. she look black she should admit her black side. or she’s ashamed of that . I dont give a shit if she said arab and white. but her father is half arab and Pakistani which is a hard to digest.
Pakistani and arab do not get mixed easily. I don’t believe her claim. . and because of her background she wouldn’t be Victoria secret model.

Nikki May 31, 2014 at 11:44 am

wow, a fully european australian woman

WTF May 31, 2014 at 11:52 am

lmfao nikki you’re a troll right? i mean i sure hope so. you type the more inaccurate and dumbest shit on here. lying about people’s heritage and making shit up. don’t you have a life????

WTF May 31, 2014 at 11:52 am

most *** autocorrect sorry bitches

Nikki June 8, 2014 at 3:28 pm

oh thanks for asking! yes i have a life, and a swell one too. i have a beautiful house amazing family members and friends and i have traveled all over the world. how bout you?

shobohunter May 30, 2014 at 7:45 am


I could be wrong.
but I knows that Pakistani dont have arab roots. not many. .
pakistani people are much more closer to Asian rather then gulf arabs. even much closer to Chinese then middle eastern..

shobohunter May 27, 2014 at 5:48 am

why is it a lie? o think i explained it.
the REASONS I think she had lied is to
to look and sound exotic. she must have heard often from somewhere from peoples that she look middle eastern .. or she made it up. anyway. so she throw 2 most commonly known middle eastern country Pakistan and Saudi.
most Hollywood liberal do that..

WTF April 17, 2014 at 10:36 am

I thought she was a mulatto…

ihatemostpeople May 6, 2014 at 10:32 pm

Me too. She looks half black and half white.

Multiethnicchick May 12, 2014 at 1:49 pm

no she doesn’t

andrew May 14, 2014 at 3:40 pm

she’s anywhere close to a half black and half white person, crazy people..

WTF June 2, 2014 at 11:09 am

she actually DOES look like a mulatto

Djodjo06 May 26, 2014 at 10:54 am


Please note some Arabs from Gulf can be black. So it’s not surprising.

WTF June 2, 2014 at 11:09 am

thanks “djodjo06”. at least someone agrees with me on this

shobohunter June 2, 2014 at 2:11 pm

nobody mistake Arabs for blacks. specially in airport security. it they could it wouldn’t be so much of a problem. also Arab is a ethnicity not a race.mostly they are Brown.
I am sure she isn’t Pakistani.. she is half black or afro-arab and white.

WTF June 2, 2014 at 2:32 pm

i think her mother had an affair with a black man. there is no way in hell she isn’t half black.

shobohunter June 2, 2014 at 2:57 pm

you need to stop watching porno. its stuck in your head. you need to take your mind off from gutter.. it is other way around.
she is afro-sheikh. and they are raped product by Arab..

arab are basterd. lol

shobohunter April 15, 2014 at 4:26 am

“father of Pakistani and Saudi Arabian descent”
she is lying. .. or she doesn’t know.

Djodjo06 May 26, 2014 at 10:56 am

Why is it a lie ?

Just curiosity.

WTF June 2, 2014 at 2:32 pm

her mom screwed a black dude on the dl

nina January 10, 2015 at 6:24 pm

@wtf most arabs have that kind of skincolour, why would she lie?

shobohunter April 15, 2014 at 4:23 am

she doesn’t look Pakistani but she could be.
Pakistani don’t have one certain feature. they do have variety of it..
sheikh is a arab surnames.

Aylin April 16, 2014 at 6:35 pm

Well, she has stated that she’s Lithuanian/Pakistani/Saudi – so her look is “mixed” not 100% Pakistani.

shobohunter May 18, 2014 at 3:36 am

without proof source her claim is only and purely an assumptions.
I know more about Pakistan and arab than most of you people. they’ are different ethnicity.
they dont get mixed easily. Plus Lithuanian are white she doesn’t look half white. but
I could be wrong.

ethnicgod March 26, 2014 at 8:20 am

I personally know this woman and didn’t know she was already on ethnic celebs. I submitted her ethnic, opps.

indo March 19, 2014 at 11:35 pm

She’s fucking gorgeous

xforeverlove21 April 26, 2014 at 6:28 pm

Of course she is, she is a model after all…

Multiethnicchick May 12, 2014 at 1:50 pm

not all models are gorgeous. They’re always made up and many of them are rather…unique looking for lack of a better word. This woman has natural beauty and she’s even better looking than Adriana Lima without makeup

andrew March 11, 2014 at 6:28 am

Irina Shaik!

andrew March 11, 2014 at 6:29 am


J.J. March 2, 2014 at 5:13 pm

correction; her eyes are green (blue w brown) and her hair is dark brown (brunette) I think it should be listed

I fail to see how she’s been categorised as being hazel eyed. her eyes aren’t hazel in any way shape or form, they’re blue with brown around the pupil which would make them look green, I mean hazel is the light copper/honey brown colour of a hazelnut and in north America there’s the common misconception hazel refers to green and brown iris’s or to a lesser extent any multi-coloured iris. But for an Australian model to be branded as hazel eyed when they have obvious blue in them is absolutely ridiculous.

Check7t February 25, 2014 at 11:06 pm

Arab look.

me May 21, 2012 at 9:32 am

interesting ,because she looks have black in her

Jocelyn July 1, 2012 at 12:25 pm

I absolutely hate when this happens. “oh she looks like she could have african, european and asian” NO. It states right their she is Pakistani, Saudi, and Lithuanian! I see no African in her at all, because many women of Pakistani descent have her eye shape, and she has the head shape of a Lithuanian women and the nose shape as well.

me August 22, 2012 at 11:32 am

no she looks more Arabian and most Arabs have black on them, see Gaddafi

Ale October 24, 2012 at 9:27 am

No she don’t look more Arabian she looks what she is mixture of these ethnicities.
Gadaffi is Libyan while her father is Saudi, Libyans and Saudis look quite different.

ihatemostpeople February 25, 2014 at 4:58 am

I thought the same thing. I thought she was a mulatto.

Multiethnicchick May 12, 2014 at 1:52 pm

oh really and what about her point to her being partially “black”. Her hair texture is nothing like that of a mixed person’s even straightened
