Model Behavior: Alex Wek

September 4, 2009

They say dark chocolate is sweeter, well in this case it is. Model Alek Wek has a sweet style and unique look that has propelled her into one of the most successful models of color. Born in Sudan, Wek owns the runway with her long legs and piercing gaze. And like the true Aries (we love fashion) she is, Wek has also transitioned into the role of designer with her collection of handbags, Wek 1933. Whatever this Chocolate Model/Fashionista does, we can bet it will be a success.
