Ethiopian super-model Liya Kebede, who has graced the covers of  Haute Couture magazines like Vogue, and who has walked the runways for Africa Arise and more, has earned spot number 35 on The Giant Top 50 list.

Giant magazine annualy compiles it’s list of the 50 most infleuntial people who are “changing the world we live in and impacting our state of being”. Liya’s nomination is no surprise considering the waves she has made in the fashion industry for the past 10 years.

She was the first black model to represent Estee Lauder and was one of the African  models featured  in the Vogue Italia’s all black issue  in the summer of 2008. Her movie Desert  Flower will be released  soon, and she has signed a deal with US retailer  J.Crew  to have her  children’s clothing line Lem-Lem sold there.

With her work as a global UN goodwill ambassador  for maternal health and other humanitarian works, Liya Kebede is what Giant describes as “the epitome of what a model citizen can be”.
