Featured Model: Liya Kebede


(This post is completely overdue. I apologize on my part for not writing as often. Please forgive me.)

Liya Kebede (born January 3, 1978) is an Ethiopian model, actress, and clothing designer. She is also an activist.

Kebede has been featured in numerous editorials, fashion lines, catalogs, and campaigns. Her work includes being featured in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Vanity Fair, and more. She is a former spokesmodel for Estee Lauder, and a current spokesmodel for L'Oreal.

 My decision to write this post came after watching Desert Flower (2009), starring Liya Kebede.
Plot Summary:

"The autobiography of a Somalian nomad circumcised at 3, sold in marriage at 13, fled from Africa a while later to become finally an American supermodel and is now at the age of 38, the UN spokeswoman against circumcision. Written by Athina-90"
