Name: Nyasha Matonhodze
Agency: Elite Model Management in London
Where We’ve Seen Her: The Zimbabwe-born beauty made headlines when she was tapped to be the face of luxury brand, Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2011 campaign. But we’ve had our eye on since her feature in Wonderland Magazine and her brilliant shoot for Giles Deacon’s pre-Fall 2011 lookbook. Discovered less than a year ago, Matonhodze has already walked for Marc by Marc Jacobs, Rachel Roy, Louise Gray, Jonathan Saunders, Emanuel Ungaro, Louis Vuitton and Jean-Charles de Castelbajac. She has also appeared in Harper’s Bazaar, V Magazine, i-D Magazine and Teen Vogue.
Why We Love Her: We think her statuesque height is commendable but her doe-eyes, swan-like neck and chiseled bone structure are even more stunning.
Random Fact: Though she was always told that she should model, Matonhodze wasn’t seriously interested in modeling until she saw an episode of “America’s Next Top Model.”
