Still Stunning! Agbani Darego

She is a modern Nigerian icon. Along with Oluchi, Agbani Darego helped revolutionize the modelling industry and revive beauty pageantry in Nigeria. Ever since Agbani was crowned as Miss World 2001, she was placed on a pedestal and is considered as a role model for many young Nigerian ladies aiming to be beauty queens. Soon after her win, she was spotted in international publications including US Vogue and Essence. She also featured in international campaigns for cosmetic giant L’oreal. For the past few years, many have been asking ‘where is Agbani?’. The only recent spotting was at the ARISE show at New York Fashion week earlier this year. Great news for Agbani fans – she is doing well and still looks absolutely gorgeous! Agbani is based in New York, signed to Ford Model Management and attends New York University. Though she is no longer a full-time model, she hit the catwalks at the recent Spring/Summer 2010 New York Fashion Week shows and has reportedly been signed as the new face of international sportswear brand Lotto Sport Italia in Africa. For the next few years, she will appear in brand ads and act as a brand ambassador. See some recent photos of Agbani below:

Wow, @ poster

Is that really Agbani?  The first two pictures didn't look anything like her. 

Wow. She's too skinny now. What happened to her?

no need to cry because she's dark.

Black is beautiful though maybe you disagree. I'm not going to bleach my skin with dangerous chemicals just because some people are brain whitewashed.

Being lighter does not mean the other person is dark. Agbani cannot be classified as a dark skinned black woman anywhere in the world.

yes she does.

There are different shades of dark from medium/light brown to dark chocolate. Or maybe milk chocolate to dark.

and i hope you noticed her sister is lighter than her.

The Yaradua photos you posted are of the same person btw. Its the same daughter.

Trust Ijaw girl and Ibime to defend someone of their ethnic stock.

She looks too thin. I'm beginning to think modelling (female) is a license to starve one's self.

What about me?. Does my thinking that she is pretty also defending someone of my ethnic stock blindly?. Any opinion different from another in nairaland is regarded as ethnocentrism.

her younger sister is somewhat pretty but Agbani is prettier, imo. Even with her dark skin.

Their mum isnt bad looking either (is that her in the photo).

Very bad thing to say about a lady especially a pretty one at that. You can say that about a man but not a woman.

Heads up Agbani.

Pressure got too much for her at one stage, thats why she started avoiding Nigerians. She's doing well for herself now though. She was never into all the hype, just a shy girl who got thrown into the limelight.

Most people complain bout Genevieve's as well. Hmm.
