MODEL OF THE WEEK: WAKEEMA HOLLIS
Hair: Dark Brown
WAKEEMA HOLLIS has the face of a porcelain doll that has attracted all of fashion’s insiders. Her ability to effortlessly speak to the camera with her eyes and make you want to say something back to her photos is a testament as to why Wakeema is quickly blossoming into a supermodel legend. Moschino took a liking to her by having her be the face of their fall 2007 ad campaign. She has of course walked down the runways of fashion’s leading designers, including Diane von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, and Jean Paul Gaultier. Unlike our models from previous weeks, Ms. Hollis was born and raised in the US, hailing from Memphis, Tennessee, and she’s the prettiest thing Memphis has produced. With editorials in V and Numero magazines topped with unforgettable beautiful almond shaped eyes and shapely lips, Wakeema will leave a lasting impression in fashion.
