FRESH FACE: YBF Model Nyasha Matonhodze Nabs Louis Vuitton Campaign
Who's Nyasha Matonhodze? A YBF chick who is burning up the catwalks of the fashion industry. And she's only 16. Find out about this fresh face, and what major luxury campaign she just landed inside...
Hailing from Zimbabwe, Nyasha Matonhodze, a British-raised sixteen-year-old, has been chosen as one of the new faces of Louis Vuitton, and stars in the company's fall/winter advertising campaign.
With credits in Teen Vogue and Harper's Bazaar to her name, Nyasha is making a big name for herself on the runway. So how does she feel about the campaign and all the attention lavished on her? She told The Telegraph,
"My eyes filled up with tears and I thought 'Lord you are lucky!' It didn't actually hit me until I was sat in a Rolls Royce sitting eye-to-eye with [famed fashion photographer Stephen] Meisel."
But she admits the industry can be brutal. She told The Cut,
"If you're not strong-minded, modeling can knock your confidence quite harshly. Every day you're judged on your look, and more so today you're judged on your personality. With that said, a lot of us are 15 or 16 years old, so some girls could really take the criticism personally. What we have to understand is that there's not something wrong with us per se, we just aren't a right fit with the client."
