Ethiopian Supermodel Liya Kebede Takes Angelina Jolie’s Job For St. John Ad Campaign

Liya Kebede, international supermodel from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, has another accolade under her tiny belt, as the new face of St. John.

Taking over where actress Angelina Jolie left off, Kebede—who was the first woman of color to represent Estee Lauder—is front and center (with her own page!) in the ads Blindie scanned above.

While most black models are thrown in the midst of a gaggle of blonde European waifs, Kebede touts her own page, while two Euro models share one. Blindie LOVES it!
