Nigerian Supermodel Oluchi dazzles in All Black on the cover of ELLE South Africa’s August 2013 Issue



Oluchi ELLE SA August 2013 - BellaNaija

Aptly captioned ‘The Face of Africa’, Nigerian Supermodel Oluchi looks nothing short of ‘bold and daring’ on the  cover of ELLE South Africa’s August 2013 ‘Special Issue’. With her reality TV Show, ‘Africa’s Next Top Model’ still scouting in countries around Africa, Oluchi has a lot more in store for us.

What do you think about Oluchi‘s cover?

    In my personal opinion, other than the top of her head being cut off and her head being tilted too far up, she is a GEORG!!! I am happy to see Elle South Africa giving her a cover, she should have been on more covers here in the States but hey, she made tons of money on the Victoria Secret’s campaign so I ain’t crying a bucket for her especially since her husband is loaded up to the gills.

    Nothing wow at all. Not the best pic nor pose she’s done.

    She’s got a bit of a stomach, the pic looks blurry, they cut her forehead off…this is a horrible pic! Especially for a cover! Oluchi is much hotter than this please. Elle needs to try harder.

    I saw people hyping the cover on Twitter and I couldnt wait to see. Im disappointed! The makeup like most of the makeup on black models in SA is terrible. I only rejoice at the endless legs, Until i realise that this awkward ‘haute couture’ pose has made this gorgeous woman look like a knock kneed giant 🙁 Many thumbs down
