Jasmine Sanders has become a regular in the modeling world and she doesn’t seem ready to disappear anytime soon. Like many in her generation, Sanders developed an impressive social media following and was able to parlay that into more attention and success. The 27-year-old model goes by “Golden Barbie” and is signed to The Society Model Management.
Sanders has had the Golden Barbie nickname — which he uses on all social media platforms — since she was a child.
Sanders says that the nickname came from her childhood when her sister came up with the name thanks to other monikers that she was called by a teacher and friends.
“I had a teacher who used to call me Goldilocks in school because of my curls, and my friends used to tell me I looked like a life-size Barbie,” Sanders told Vogue in an interview. “One day, my sister and I were playing around with silly usernames for social media, and we put the two together. ‘Golden Barbie’ had a ring to it that I liked, so I stuck with it. I’m actually thankful my following knows me as Golden Barbie, versus some of the other names we suggested!”
Throughout her modeling career, Sanders has appeared on runways, in print, and even in commercials — most notably as the lead role in Kylie’s “Glosses” video.
Sanders, who is dating Terrence J, has been modeling since the age of 13.
