It's smiles all around as hot new Kenyan and British model Malaika Firth debuts for Victoria's Secret catwalk show.
Born in Kenya, her name means Angel but she's not from Harlem she's from Essex! Malaika moved from Kenya aged 7. What an amazing team of British models wowing for VS. Josephine Skriver is awesome too.
Aged 19 she made her debut catwalk season a memorable one starring no less than 56 times during the fashion weeks.
Who knew that watching TV with your mum is the perfect way to start your modelling career! One phone call by Mum to Premier Model Management after watching a documentary and Malaika's career was up and running.
Carol White Premier's founder "What drew me to Malaika were almond eyes, caramel-kissed skin tone and unruly locks."
She's only the second ever black model to feature in a Prada campaign. "I'm proud that I'm the second black model but I'm also biracial. It's a positive that I'm not white and I'm not black." Fantastic colours.
Leading the way for Valentino.
Dignity and poise plus Cara!
Valentino is more fun when the hem is shorter.
Pucci made full use of her 5'9 height and 23 inch waist. Yes 23!
Dolce Diva suits her!
Backstage at Jason Wu with Anais Mali and Maria Borges.
One of Jean Paul Gaultier's best Spring looks.
Malaika's a big fan of singer Erykah Badu.
Isn't she glovely? Isn't she wonderful? Isn't she precious? Less than one modelling year old.
Pout and about.
Woo Jason Wu!
