So I’m customarily and casually going through online fashion magazines and I bump into a gorgeous model by the name Giannina Oteto and for some reason, she catches my attention and I decide to Google the hell out of this gem! (not in a lesbian-y way btw…)
Surprise surprise! She’s Kenyan!
I delve into more research and discover that besides being featured in South Africa’s Elle & Marie Claire magazines in epic fashion spreads, she was also featured in Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 Launch that took place earlier this year. Like OMG do you guys know what an achievement that is?
Gia, as she calls herself on Instagram shared a stage with the legendary Naomi Campbell & Alek Wek who did a surprise appearance at the star studded launch whose presence was graced by the likes of Jay Z, 2 Chainz, the Kardashian family & 50 Cent to mention but a few.
Okay enough of my blabbering, ch-ch-check this out:

Here are other modeling photos of Giannina:
So much melanin and beauty from this poser. Swooooning!!!!
Oh and she gets to hang out with the likes of Jaden Smith and Nas and yes we are jealous!
Giannina joins the list of Kenyan born models such as Malaika Firth who are making waves in the international modeling scene and we definitely commend her. She’s a true inspiration to the up and coming models here in Kenya.
