Watch [K]inée Diouf

Seriously, watch out for this girl. Signed with  Nathalie Paris back in 2006, Kinée Diouf‘s ferocity finally caught my eye watching the Lanvin S/S07* (Thanks CC) runway show ages ago. Her rich, glistening, mahogany skin against those clothes was breathtaking. Her attitude paired with this Naomi-Coco-esque walk reeled me in, and now I’m hooked. The Senegalese stunner has been taking the industry by storm, literally booking campaign after campaign along with an astonishing number of editorial spreads. Her beauty and stunning features are undeniable. She’s one of the few black (let alone colored) models swimming in a vicious sea of pale Euro-bots, to make things happen. Kinée, Ataui, Aminata: It’s only the begginning ladies.
