  • Ugandan model, Aamito Lagum is beautiful, inspirational, intelligent, fearless and our Woman of Style and Power #AnariaWoSaP today. Raised by a single mum, Aamito traded law school for modeling and won the first season of Africa's Next Top Model. β €

Since then, she has walked for Marc Jacobs, Paul Smith and Bottega Veneta to name just a few. In 2016, Aamito was subject to racist and hateful comments when a picture of her lips was posted on MAC's official Instagram page. Fearless in her response, Aamito encouraged her followers to take a picture of their lips with the hashtag: β€œ#PrettyLipsPeriod” and turned a discriminatory moment into an inclusive and #empowerment movement. A great example of how taking a negative situation in life and turning it for good is always best.β €

When asked to describe herself in a recent interview with Interview magazine, she simply says: "I am a black Ugandan with a white smile." πŸ“·:@aamito_lagum, @dnamodels, @legainsbourg, @interviewmag, @fastashleysbk. β €
