  47. Vonnie says:

    June 30th, 2010 at 8:12 pm

    She’s gorgeous! I wish her the best! I see a little bit of Tyra in her facial structure, but she looks more like Marie Fuema.

  48. Syd says:

    July 1st, 2010 at 1:09 am

    She really does look like a baby Tyra…Except darker eyes and skin tone.

    Really pretty.

  49. RRRaul415 says:

    July 2nd, 2010 at 10:56 am

    @Vonnie – I agree. More Marie Fuema than Tyra. Both are compliments to a new girl.

    I’d like to see her without the weave.

  50. bluesy87 says:

    July 2nd, 2010 at 1:52 pm

    You’ve gotta be kidding me. Her resemblance to Tyra is almost disturbing. If someone photo shopped her skin and eyes to match Tyra’s and put her picture next to one of Tyra’s when she was 16 no one would be able to tell the difference. It’s amazing. Except I must admit that this girl has a nicer smile. As much as I love Tyra, her whole top lip disappears when she smiles.

  51. modelsandstyle says:

  52. Myssbelle says:

    This young lady will be the one to look out for in the coming years.
    I can really see her walking for Dior, Lanvin, Prada, and Ralph Lauren.
    I can see the amazing photoshoots from the lens of Steven Miesel.

  54. Jen says:

    July 5th, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    She might look like Tyra but does she have talent? It’s great to see more black models out there but I worry more about talent more than skin color. Let’s face it without talent it doesn’t matter what skin color you have, if your not selling the designers clothes you can kiss your career GOODBYE!

  55. Mr Modelman says:

    July 6th, 2010 at 12:21 pm

    She looks like Tyra Banks baby sister! :)

  56. mrs vivi says:

    July 8th, 2010 at 11:07 am

    it can be said to she is a real model. simply perfect, I hope she will be lucky. Otherwise, i really hope if shortly come back again into the fashion the nice models…i think very important the perfect body, long legs and nice face…not just nice face…

  59. Ryo says:

    July 23rd, 2010 at 6:15 pm
