  • Chella


  • Vonnie

    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.

  • Syd

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

    Really pretty.

  • RRRaul415

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

    I’d like to see her without the weave.

  • bluesy87

    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.

  • she is gorgeous!

  • 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.

  • Vernette york


  • Jen

    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!

  • Mr Modelman

    She looks like Tyra Banks baby sister! :)

  • mrs vivi

    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…

  • pretty,keep it up are an AFRICAN beauty

  • Rebecca

    Boy would Tyra be proud!LOl.Hereieth is really pretty,flawless skin and her eyes are really…captivating?

  • I see more Oluchi and Jaunel Mckenzie than Tyra and Fuema. But still a gorgeous girl

  • Lexi


  • antmjudge

    ~~omg…..tyra banks….she look like her….strong look….
