#Fashion #News | 19 year-old Kenyan Model becomes first black model for Prada's ad in 19 years

We recently talked about black models hitting Dior's runway for the first time after 6 collections with only white models. The Italian fashion house Prada is also going back to hiring black.

Malaika Firth, a Kenyan-born, U.K.-raised model, is one of seven models in Prada's fall/winter 2013 ad campaign. The 19-year-old also walked in Prada’s menswear 2014 show. Malaika is the first black model featured in a Prada ad campaign since Naomi Campbell in 1994, the same year the Kenyan beauty was born.

But again, if you weren't told, would you guess this girl was black?
