Sudanese model, Adut Akech Bior just gave us our whole entire life in her look for the Australian designers;  ‘Romance Was Born’ show. Between her beautiful black skin, the bright orange lipstick and her shimmer eyeshadow – the model is proving time and time again that melanin is truly the most beautiful thing to witness.

At just 16 years, Adut has more of a resume than women twice her age. She has worked for clients like YSL, Vogue Magazine and Ryan Storer. Internationally, diversity within the fashion industry is still a major issue so it’s great to see designers giving young black models a platform to showcase their beauty like everyone else.

We definitely hope to see more African models represented in the mainstream media.
