This lithe Ethiopian beauty has been everywhere lately. Despite having three almost back to back posts about her, I have not developed an obsession. She's just been cranking out jobs. One of the most recognizable faces in the world of models of color, Liya consistently books huge editorials. Often moving back and forth between the worlds of high fashion and commercial work, Liya was the face of J. Crew not too long ago and served as the sole model for their catalog. She is equally versatile as she is beautiful so it's no surprise that she pops up everywhere you turn. At age 32, she gives the young girls a run for their money.
