MODEL CRUSH MONDAY
When I was a child, I just wanted to be something normal like an accountant—I’m really good at math. But then, Dominique Savri scouted me in my hometown in the south of France, and she told me that I had to go to Paris and try modeling.
Discovered by Dominique Savri, head booker for Metropolitan Models at the age of 16 and she’s been breaking barriers ever since.For example, In 2012, she became the first model of colour to ever walk exclusively for Calvin Klein. And as fellow Supermodels like legendary Naomi Campbell and Malaika Firth, Cindy was the third model of colour to become the face of a Prada campaign. Not bad for a 20-year old covering several fashion magazines and over one hundred fashion shows from New York to Paris. How’s that for bragging rights, for a women who hails from the south of France and who is helping kick down the doors for coloured girls on the runway.
