The new ‘Face Of Iran’ is well known by her huge devoted fan base in the Middle East, but the supermodel is hell-bent on letting the whole world learn to love the Iranian culture and beauty.
It may sound like a tall order, but Elanex is no stranger to accomplishing the impossible. At just 18 years old, she dreamed of a career as a make-up artist, by 20 she owned and ran her own salon in one of the most prestigious areas of the nation’s capital of Tehran. Now, she is on the cover of one of the biggest magazines in the world, Maxim.
Take A Look!
As Elnaz’s reputation, she was invited to shoot for the cover of Cosmopolitan, and it made her the first Iranian makeup artist to be on one of their magazines.
We should note, Elnaz’s partner — Hamid Fadaei — encouraged Elnaz to start showing off her own makeup and to begin modeling and she hasn’t looked back since. Hamid created campaigns for Elnaz using his own clothing line, and Elnaz gained over 500,000 followers in just 2 months. As we said, just this week Elnaz was on the cover of MAXIM France, where she talked about her culture and the importance of sharing it with the world, especially in these times where foreign relations are tense and there’s such a massive cultural gap between the Middle East and the West.

Elnaz currently lives in Dubai, but recently signed with world-famous media specialist and talent manager Sheeraz Hasan. Elnaz took his ‘FAME by Sheeraz Masterclass’, an online course that breaks down how brands, artists, or models can jump-start their fame. Elnaz is now signed to FAME’s roster.
