So many models out there trying to make a perfectly happy transition from modeling to something else. Music, television, movies. How many really succeed in making a name, a career outside the fashion magazines, catwalks, ad campaigns?
I’m hoping Liya Kebede could be one of those lucky gorgeous women who can be more than just models. She’s playing Waris Dirie in the upcoming movie Desert Flower. I watched the trailer several times already and I admit I am more and more fascinated by Liya and her beauty which seems to come from the interior more than the outer shell. I won’t tell you more about the movie, the trailer is self explanatory (working against my beliefs already by inviting you to watch the trailer to a movie you haven’t already seen. I had to make an exception with Liya, you’ll see why). So tell me, after watching it – what say you – isn’t she something else? (via)
