AFRICANGLOBE – 19 year old Kenyan born Malaika Firth is the new face of Prada Autumn/Winter 2013. Why is this huge? You may ask. This is very huge considering the fashion house prefers to book white models.

Malaika is the second Black model ever to front a campaign for Prada. The only other Black model to book such a campaign was Naomi Campbell back in 1994.

Malaika has previously walked for Prada shows in Milan and is currently signed up with Premier Model Management in London the same agency that discovered Naomi Campbell when she was 16. Malaika was photographed  for the autumn/winter 2013 Prada campaign alongside supermodel Christy Turlington.

This new campaign can only mean that she should be prepared  for the next level of modelling fame.

  • My daughter is next!

  • Yeah she dont see herself as BLACK, you IDIOTS, most mix raced folk dont, here is a quote from her – – – I’m proud that I’m the second black model, but also, I’m mixed. I’m biracial. I find it really good that I’m not white and I’m not black. It’s amazing. Naomi Campbell is so big, so for me to be compared with her is wow.

  • color is always more beautiful.

  • world (opps)

  • Prada is does not want to be left outof the emerging black market. Green is the same color all around the would.

  • ..or maybe they too recognize that the Afro diaspora is the new frontier and are trying to seem more progressive? Its all about money yo..nothing but the oney
