18-yr-old IMG Models signee Elizabeth Ayodele does ‘Grace Jones’ style for Nasty Boy…
Elizabeth Ayodele does ‘Grace Jones‘ style for A Nasty Boy‘s second issue.
The 18-yr-old IMG Worldwide signee chose the iconic ‘Grace Jones’ hair look paired with a leather biker jacket over a slinky top with a bold statement creeper embellishment across her face done in bold retro makeup look for the cover shot.
The model who made her runway debut for Fendi also chose sheer floral pieces paired with the edgy hair and sunnies for the editorial.
She was discovered by Few Models and few months later was signed to IMG Worldwide. “Elizabeth Ayodele’s life has since changed into a roller coaster ride after kicking off her modeling career in Paris Fashion Week and Milan Fashion Week walking for storied brands such as Fendi, Yves Saint Laurent, Mui Mui and being photographed by renowned fashion photographer Mario Testino for Vogue India” Richard Akuson of ‘A Nasty Boy’ shares about the model.
“In recent years, there has been an unprecedented emergence of Nigerian models in the international modeling industry with many of them gaining success, Elizabeth in a way, represents the best of this crop as a young model who has not just taken the industry by storm but has done so in spite of her 5.8 height. Besides her, only Kate Moss has gone this far with that height in the cut-throat industry.
Elizabeth not only walked Miu Miu but also Fendi and opened the Yves Saint Laurent AW18 show in Paris – an honour reserved for super models – in her first season. It really doesn’t get better than that. She continues to book campaigns and gigs one after the other as she peddles her way into carving a name for her self. For this reason, we couldn’t have made a better choice of a Nigerian model to cover this issue than her.” Akuson shares on choosing the international model as the cover girl for the 2nd ever edition.
