    What a great profile of Alek. She is one of my favorite models and a beautiful person inside and out.

    Smart and beautiful. Definitely my favorite model.

  • ValdaDeDieu

    Alex Wek is beautiful:  glowing skin, a swan-like neck, distinctive eyes, yet I have seen her made-up to her best advantage only once. ONCE! I think, she would look gloriously “otherworldly” if as much attention were paid to making her unique features “pop” as are done with Caucasian models, some of whom look pretty ordinary without their signature “look.”

  • SayCheese

    Why is she on how I made it. All she was not eat and take pictures. 

  • Maradebe2004

    Alek has set the standard for African beauty. Period.

  • densure

    she is not only beautiful, she is also very down to earth, and knowledgeable. 

  • densure

    she is my favorite model.

  • Cincy45214

    Wow, I really enjoyed this and what she had to say is so true.

  • C. Young

    striking beauty? her face is round and unremarkable. she was chosen because they wanted a black model with absolutely no white features, which is really hard to find. go to subsaharan africa. she looks like every other underfed woman there.

    (true stuff that nobody has the balls to say)

  • Sandy

    she is simply beautiful!! love her

  • toon59

    i agree. her confidence is attractive but physically she’s average.
