Model Love: Malaika Firth - The New Face of Prada

I was reading Grazia and noticed a post about Prada's latest model, a gorgeous British and Kenyan Model called Malaika Firth. Incredibly, she is the first black model cast by Prada since Naomi Campbell in 1994. This little fact made me very ecstatic for Malaika, it is an incredible feat for the 19 year old who has previously worked with brands like Asos (I knew I recognised that face!).

Malaika's achievement also made me realise that I can't wait for the era when it becomes more common place to see more black faces, and indeed more women of 'color' front the campaigns of more high end brands. I hope I don't have too long to wait!

I love Malaika's look, although she looks incredibly cute, she still manages to have that edge that is a recognisable trait of the top models. She also seems quite down to earth as this interview with I-D reveals. Plus, I always have love for a fellow African doing well and can't wait to see what the future holds for her!
