Liya Kebede is one of my favorite models. The 34yo Ethiopian beauty has gone from the pretty face status to activism and even fashion design – she’s fighting for the maternal health issues and for a better Ethiopian future through her ethical Lemlem fashion label. Model, activist, designer, mother (of two), wife and, more recently, actress.
We’ve seen Liya in Desert Flower (at least we’ve all seen the trailer), she’s also been in Black Gold (alongside Antonio Banderas and Freida Pinto) and now she’s a queen in a new French movie – “Sur la piste du Marsupilami”. For the Parisian premiere of the said movie, Liya was absolutely glowing in a white ensemble by Isabel Marant (from the Fall Winter 2012 2013 collection).
There’s just one word to sum it up: perfection! (anyone cares to disagree? Good. I thought so too! – wink – however, if you feel like there’s something left to say, do hit the comments section but not before casting your vote after the photo! Oh, and you can also watch the trailer of “Sur la piste du Marsupilami” after the jump)
