We love Alek Wek! Her rise to fame has been inspirational, not only to young models worldwide, but to the millions of African models whose unconventional beauty had been sidelined for years. This year Alek Wek has been selected to represent melissa shoes in their latest campaign. The South Sudanese supermodel is the face of the melissa “Rainbow” collection, the images from the campaign are bright and colourful with Alek styled like an African princess, in a techni-coloured melissa rainbow, she stands statuesque.

The melissa “Rainbow” collection is now available at retail stores until March 2013.
