You may want to sit down.

We spend a lot of time on Instagram (no, really—a lot of time), and when we're not living vicariously through our favorite FOMO-inducing accounts, we're checking on some particularly talented users. So when our GQ castings team finds a ’grammer worth shouting out, we think it's our duty to share him or her with you, dear followers. Up today, German born model Zaina Gohou a woman who's cool factor is more than a little intimidating.

Zaina Gohou likes fast cars, dancing in the desert, taking underwear selfies in public bathrooms, hard work, and international travel. The stunning model from a small town in Germany is now based in Brooklyn but she spends her time off getting physical in nature and partying with friends—desert rave anyone? She's got that certain je ne sais quoi that's part jaw-dropping beauty, part scene-stealing personality, and part magic. We chatted with Gohou about crazy photo shoots-turned-twerking contests, her non-model passions, and her favorite little sports car. Check her out below and get ready to follow her for a long, long time.
