  • Fashion shows are glamorous for 20 minutes.

  • A lot of people especially want to know about going into business. But it's a two-way conversation.

    "Alek Wek: 'You don't have to go with the crowd'". Interview with Sali Hughes, March 28, 2014.
  • When it’s all said and done I would like to look back and think that I help to make modelling a possibility for a greater number of people. I don’t do things that I will regret in the future. I tend to err on the side of caution. Not to mention the fact that the present world I reside in would not have been possible without my past. I am most proud of being able to represent my family and community with honour and dignity.

  • There are models who don't eat. That's worrisome - you need the right amount of gas to get going.

  • Not everyone is selfish in fashion. There are people who go to bed feeling good about themselves and then spread the love.

  • Maybe I do have a few more dresses, but I'm just like everyone else.

  • I learnt just how little it takes to survive, which is why I don’t waste things – food, money, friendships or opportunities.

    Alek Wek (2007). “Alek: Sudanese Refugee to International Supermodel”, Virago Press (UK)
  • I wore hot pants and cowboy boots and I thought, 'What have I gotten myself into?'

  • For me, there has never been one definition of beauty. I think we all have something to offer and when beauty shines from within, there can be no denying it

  • I believe that true beauty comes from inside you and that always shows through. I have no problem with whatever the next look is, whether it's big blonde hair and blue eyes or green hair and dark eyes. That's fine so long as there isn't just one ideal image.

  • To have this opportunity, in light of my familys struggles, made me want to create something lasting and relevant.

  • In my country, families are raised as though they are one. Although I am from the Dinka tribe, my parents didn't raise us as the Dinka tribe. They raised us as the Wek family, in the way they believed their children should grow up. So when you leave, the first thing you think is the ones you left behind. It's natural to help them in any way you can. I found a way to support myself rather than asking my Mum to give me money. I would work before school and send money back to pay for their rent and food.

  • Beauty is deeper than just what you look at in a picture. You could fancy what you like, but as a woman my mother always raised us to believe in ourselves. I'm very grateful for the fact that my mother brought me up that way.

  • I think I enjoy London the best as it's where I started my career. But Paris is beautiful too.

  • You can't buy enlightenment, but you can hire a mirror so you can watch it happen.
