Whenever we get the opportunity, HB likes to profile any and all fresh-faced models of color who are on the rise – the ones who will soon claim the spots once held by Tyra Banks and Tyson Beckford.
We’ve been following the careers of Rose Cordero, Chanel Iman, Sessilee Lopez, Jourdan Dunn, and Arlenis Sosa for some time now, but after seeing a fresh face (see below) in Kanye West’s new video for his latest single “Power,” we decided to dig a little to deeper in finding out who she was.
Her name is Diandra Forrest – one of few models with albinism, the hereditary condition in which the skin, hair and eyes produce little or no melanin, resulting in a lack of pigmentation.
And it turns out she also just appeared in a photo shoot for TheOnes2Watch. She shared the lens with model Betty Adewole.
The two wear fashions from the designers at MACHINE-A, a boutique and showroom in London’s Soho.
Check it out below.
