GORGEOUS: The 16-year-old from Nottingham is fashion's new darling
THE 16-YEAR-OLD Zimbabwe-born model who is the face of Louis Vuitton will grace the cover of glossy Love magazine.
Nyasha Matonhodze is one of fashion's brightest young stars and follows in the footsteps of successful black models like Jourdan Dunn and supermodel Naomi Campbell.
She was raised in the African country by her grandmother, but joined her mother in Nottingham aged 8.
Her lucky break came when she entered and won the Elite Model Look competition in 2009.
Matonhodze was later snapped up by French designer Louis Vuitton for its latest autumn/winter 2011 campaign.
"Nyasha is not only very beautiful, she has the little extra thing you cant quite put your finger on," a spokesperson for Elite said.
"She is intelligent, graceful and people who meet and work with her instantly fall in love with her. I have no doubt she has the potential to go all the way."
