Malaika Firth is known as “London’s new modeling wonder” and we can see why!

In July, the Kenyan-born beauty became Prada’s first black campaign model in 19 years, and now she’s a Vogue cover star.

According to reports, Malaika graces the shopping issue inside the November issue of Vogue UK. At 19 years old, she shows off her modeling talents in a navy military-inspired coat and leather pants.

Designer Micheal Kors says Malaika is fashion’s new it-girl. “There’s a girl called Malaika Firth who I think is gorgeous,” he told Vouge. “She’s just amazing.”

“I’m proud I’m the second black [Prada] model, but also I’m bi-racial,” Malaika said during an interview with WWD. “I find it really good that I’m not white and I’m not black.”

We send out big congratulations to Ms. Firth!
