Louis Vuitton Casts Nyasha Matonhodze in Fall/Winter Advertising Campaign | African Teen Model Wows in New Ad

Posted on: May 23

Louis Vuitton Fall Winter AdYoung British model Nyasha Matonhodze is one of six new faces fronting Louis Vuitton's fall/winter 2011 advertising campaign.

Acclaimed photographer Steven Meisel captured the 16-year-old beauty in stylish patent chauffeur style garb behind the wheel of a vintage Rolls Royce. It's interesting that the Northampton model is barely old enough to drive the luxury vehicle, but she certainly looks the part!

Matonhodze isn't an established name in the world of fashion, but scoring such a high profile campaign should change all that. The Zimbabwean born stunner was discovered by Elite model agency in 2009. She won the Elite Model Look UK competition later that year, which led to an appearance on Marc Jacobs' runway at Paris Fashion Week 2011.

"My eyes filled up with tears and I thought 'Lord you are lucky!'" she said of the moment she heard she'd booked the Louis Vuitton campaign. "It didn't actually hit me until I was sat in a Rolls Royce sitting eye-to-eye with Mr Meisel. He is a wonder to work with, he and Marc [Jacobs] made me feel beautiful."

Something tells me it'd be hard to make this teen feel ugly though. She really is breathtaking!

After recent campaigns starred Madonna and Scarlett Johansson, it's interesting to see the French fashion house taking a chance on an up-and-comer. Do you think that Nyasha Matonhodze is the right girl for the job?
