You can never go wrong with the Max Azria high-end line, Herve Leger!

Somali-Ethiopian fashion model, Fatima Siad is featured in the Herve Leger Spring 2012 campaign. Specifically Fatima is featured in the section showcasing ad campaigns, pictures, and editorials featuring men and women of color. The beautiful model was captured by photographer, Camilla Akrans.

No stranger to the fabulous Moroccan-born designer, Max Azria, Fatima also had an ad campaign with BCBG Max Azria for their Spring/Summer 2010 campaign.

If you are not familiar with her, Fatima Siad was born in Mogadishu, Somalia but was raised in Boston, Massachusetts. She actually placed 3rd on cyle 10 of America’s Next Top Model.

Fatima is born to a Somali mother and an Ethiopian father. Her parents divorced at a young age. She underwent female genital cutting when she was 7-years old. Her two sisters were killed by the Somali army during the civil war.

Love that she continues to rise about the hard-ships she experienced as a child. Go girl!
