Model Liya Kebede Shines in “Desert Flower”

Mar 17, 2011 By Vaneza

Model Liya Kebede, best known as the first face of color to represent Estee Lauder in 2003, is making her way onto the silver screen once again with rave reviews!

The Ethiopian-born model and active philanthropist stars in Desert Flower which according to the film’s official website is “an adaptation of Waris Dirie’s bestselling autobiography which recounts Dirie’s rise from childhood in the Somali desert to the catwalks of the international fashion business.” Kebede plays Dirie in the film and does a beautiful job of portraying the character’s struggles and successes.

Peep the trailer below! The film hits the States tomorrow and we couldn’t be more excited! Perhaps this is the season for fashion films?!
