Avatar photo



She is a modern Nigerian icon. Along with Oluchi, Agbani Darego helped revolutionize the modelling industry and revive beauty pageantry in Nigeria. Ever since Agbani was crowned as Miss World 2001, she was placed on a pedestal and is considered as a role model for many young Nigerian ladies aiming to be beauty queens. Soon after her win, she was spotted in international publications including US Vogue and Essence. She also featured in international campaigns for cosmetic giant L’oreal. For the past few years, many have been asking ‘where is Agbani?’. The only recent spotting was at the ARISE show at New York Fashion week earlier this year. Great news for Agbani fans – she is doing well and still looks absolutely gorgeous! Agbani is based in New York, signed to Ford Model Management and attends New York University. Though she is no longer a full-time model, she hit the catwalks at the recent Spring/Summer 2010 New York Fashion Week shows and has reportedly been signed as the new face of international sportswear brand Lotto Sport Italia in Africa. For the next few years, she will appear in brand ads and act as a brand ambassador. See some recent photos of Agbani below:
