A while back I told you I ran into Alek Wek in Paris, on the street. And (maybe because I’m not used to seeing models running down the street every day) I was impressed of how beautiful and graceful she was.
Our friend Ellington remembered that particular rendez-vous and send me a link recently about Ataui Deng. Ataui Deng is a young Sudanese woman, 17 years old. Beautiful and graceful, looking every inch her aunt, Alek Wek! Thank you, Ellington, Here she goes – Ataui Deng! Wishing her the best of luck in her chosen career! (photos via nymag, essence.com)
