Early Life

In 1978, Chanel Ayan, aka Ayan Pillott (age 43 years), took birth in a small village named Malanba in Kenya at her mother’s home. In an interview, Ayan revealed that her mom raised her, her 5 siblings, and 5 adopted kids alone. Pillott’s mother owns a supermarket and a vegetable store.

Ayan’s spent her childhood in a village where she and her siblings had to fetch water daily and wash their clothes. When the lady turned 18, she moved to Brazil and started working as a model. Moving out of the house and away from mommy was tough for her, but she did what was necessary. Just like Ayan, her siblings are also very successful in their lives.

Career & Net Worth

After coming to Brazil, Chanel knew that to become a model, she would have to make some contacts, and she did so. After working for some time in Brazil, a Kenyan girl moved to the USA and started living in New York.

After America, she finally settled in Dubai. But in UAE, entering the fashion industry was more challenging than US and Brazil. Before her, there was no black model, and Chanel had to face a lot of rejections.

With time her unique look became popular, and now she appears frequently in Dior fashion shows. In Dubai, hardly any fashion show happens without Pillott’s presence.

She also runs her own talent management agency, and as per our sources, she is developing a skincare range in collaboration with the makeup artist Toni Malt.
