    You 100% Won’t Recognise Nargis Fakhri From This 2004 Audition From “America’s Next Top Model"

    Throwback to when Nargis was an awkward model.

    Nargis Fakhri is a beautiful and hilarious goofball.

    But were you aware that before starting her career as a Bollywood actress, Nargis auditioned to become America's Next Top Model?

    I did not know about it. But then I found this video of Nargis being all cute and awkward in front of Tyra Banks.

    In the video, Nargis walks up to the judges and awkwardly tries convincing them to make her the next "Top Model".

    She quickly follows it up with, "If I can speak right."

    And Tyra Banks unleashes some of her signature savagery on her.

    And Nargis seems super unsure of everything.

    Nervous Nargis = Me IRL.

    But Nargis didn't need to become America's Next Top Model because the world took notice anyway.

    And look what a gorgeous swan she turned into.
