Supermodel Adut Akech is breathtaking as she poses in vibrant, modern, luxury wears for the August 2021 issue of ELLE US. As captured by photographer Chris Colls and styled by Alex White, the recent global brand ambassador for Estée Lauder gets candid on her life, career, and quick rise to fame.

In the interview titled; Adut Akech Is Electric, Elle Contributor Roxanne Fequiere refreshes memories about the 21-year-old’s journey from a refugee camp to the global high fashion streets. Born on Christmas day 1999, the South Sudan native came into a world of civil war and political unrest.

“I feel like this is my moment to show people—and to show the world—that yes, Black women are beautiful.”
