Bambi-eyed Malaika Firth is set to be one of the most in demand models of 2014! The Kenyan born beauty (who turned heads in her debut year as the first black model to have a Prada campaign since Naomi Campbell in 1994) has already proven that she has serious staying power after landing a Valentino, Burberry AND a second Prada campaign this year. But that’s not all - she’s also been featured in British, American and Parisian Vogue so a major first cover is imminent. You can catch her natural beauty and charm dominating the runways this F/W 2014, and with a career that is going from strength to strength you will not want to miss it.
Malaika is pictured here in the editorial ‘Spring Uncovered’ shot by Patrick Demarchelier for Vogue UK February 2014
