Liya Kebede Fronts Louis Vitton Campaign
Ethiopian supermodel Liya Kebede has clinched a big one, fronting Louis Vitton's campaign: Series. Becoming a top model is not only a tough job, but being a person of color in the industry, could make things go pretty slow. This is why we have to acknowledge Ms. Kebede on her new big assignment.
The luxury brand has featured a handful of black models in recent years such as Zimbabwean-born beauty, Nyasha Matonhodze, at age 16 in 2011. Sudanese supermodels, Ajak Deng and Nykhor Paul appeared in 2013, and now it's Ethiopia’s top model Liya Kebede turn to shine.
