April 15th, 2016 |Posted by models.com

Vogue Italia taps photographer Patrick Demarchelier to transform pure emotion into a quintessential work of art. Through Elin Svahn’s glamourous styling cues, bright paillettes shine through tulle collars, exaggerated bows, and sparkling metallics, straight from the runways of Maison Margiela, Gucci, Marc Jacobs & Alexander McQueen. The mastered hands of Jimmy Paul and Gucci Westman render a complete dream amplified by models Gigi Hadid, Liya Kebede, Imaan Hammam, Mical Bockru, Yana Bovenistier, and Nirvana Naves.

3.1 Phillip Lim SS16

February 5th, 2016 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

3.1 Phillip Lim creates a new romantic reality in the brand’s latest Spring campaign. The ethereal model and humanitarian Liya Kebede returns home to Ethiopia and is captured in the graphic line, surrounded by family members. Celebrating 10 years in business, Phillip Lim and photographer Viviane Sassen set out to capture the authentic essence of the 3.1 Phillip Lim woman – beautifully strong with a global sensibility. That meant a bit of guerilla-style imagery without hair, make-up, or styling teams, just the core necessities. The results were amazingly approachable imagery with punches of saturated color and a spotlight for streamlined contemporary tailoring.

And God Created Liya

April 22nd, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

It’s been a long time coming but finally Liya Kebede returns for the May 2015 cover of Vogue Paris. Shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, this issue marks the 13 year anniversary since the ageless goddess was last on the cover and the reunion is a sight for sore eyes.

It’s all about being bold this issue and Liya is shown on the cover modeling a print heavy jumpsuit from Dior‘s couture collection with a crown of curls set against a vivid red background. Inside the issue, Vogue Paris does a retrospective of its favorite shoots with the Ethiopian icon and features an in depth story titled Et, Dieu Crea Liya.

Throughout the years, Liya has also been a mainstay in publications like Vogue Italia, American Vogue, V Magazine & i-D and has worked with a bevy of photographers like Steven Meisel, Craig McDean, Annie Leibovitz, and Mert & Marcus. She has been the face of Estee Lauder and has been featured in campaigns for Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, & Balenciaga. With her roles in movies like Desert Flower, The Good Shepherd, & Day of the Falcon she has been able to shown her wide range of creative passions.

Through her Liya Kebede Foundation she has used her extensive platform as an international supermodel to reduce maternal, newborn and child mortality in Ethiopia and around the world. She also uses fashion for the betterment of the World with her LemLem line which helps preserve the art of traditional weaving in Ethiopia and to offer work opportunities to local artisans.

Seeing Stars

April 21st, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

It may be a mere coincidence but hopefully it’s something more positive- 4 eye-catching covers with some of our favorite black models of today. A shift is indeed rising: Joan Smalls on the cover of Lucky Magazine (normally reserved for celebrities), Binx Walton fronting Vogue Espana, Aya Jones gracing Numéro and Liya Kebede returning once again for a Vogue Paris cover (and the first black model on the cover since 2010’s issue with then new face, Rose Cordero). At any rate, we feel it’s a fantastic step in the right direction. With the return of models commandeering the covers of the major fashion glossies in the past year, we really hope that these four covers are but the beginning of this trend of including beauties of all colors.

The Warmest Color

March 2nd, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

Louis Vuitton unleashes its latest Spirit of Travel campaign and the results are mesmerizing. Shot by Patrick Demarchelier, this season we arrive in a turquoise paradise starring the serene efforts of Liya Kebede, Julia Nobis, and Maartje Verhoef where they roam through the French West Indies adorned with the newest trunks and handbags that Vuitton has to offer. The pristine, azure waters and a late-60s, floral vibe from Nicolas Ghesquière’s Spring/Summer collection brings us out of the slum of Winter to a sartorial utopia.

Vuitton’s New Groove

June 25th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

As one of the ultimate luxury brands Louis Vuitton has to take things just one step further than the rest. Case in point Nicolas Ghesquière‘s first campaign for LV, which boasts three of photography’s biggest names – Juergen Teller, Bruce Weber and Annie Leibovitz. Each superstar was given free reign to interpret Ghesquière’s fall collection and photograph some of his many muses. Naturally Liya Kebede, Freja Beha Erichsen and Charlotte Gainsbourg make appearances and newcomers Jean Campbell and Kirstin Liljegren star alongside the three Ghesquière vets. The striking Series 1 ads are a completely new direction for LV and serve to usher in the brands thrilling new chapter under Ghesquière.
