Congratulations to Anok Yai!
Recall that the model was catapulted to fame in 2017 after photographer Steve Hall took a photo of her at Howard University’s annual Yard Fest.
In 2018, Yai was recruited by the iconic fashion designer, Miuccia Prada, to star in her eponymous Spring/Summer 2018 advertising campaign. Yai opened Prada’s Fall/Winter 2018 runway show, making her the first Sudanese model to do so, and the second Black model, since Naomi Campbell did same in 1994.
Now she has been named as the star of Prada’s new Spring/Summer 2019 advertising campaign. See the new campaign photos below:
