Nyasha Matonhodze at the age of 16 is already reaching for supermodel status. She has walked a total of 67 shows in 2011; strutting her fierce runway walk in the fashion capitals of New York, London, Milan and Paris. She has also appeared on the pages of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and W Magazine among others.
However, Nyasha caught much of our attention when she became the face of the Louis Vuitton campaign earlier this year. In an interview with the Telegraph Nyasha decribes that experience stating: “My eyes filled up with tears and I thought ‘Lord you are lucky!’ It didn’t actually hit me until I was sat in a Rolls Royce sitting eye-to-eye with [famed fashion photographer Stephen] Meisel.”
I can’t wait to see what this bombshell has in store for us in 2012..
“Nyasha is not only very beautiful she has the little extra thing you can’t quite put your finger on,” a spokesperson for Elite said, “She is intelligent, graceful and people who meet and work with her instantly fall in love with her. I have no doubt she has the potential to go all the way.”
