Alek Wek For Benetton Spring 2013


Benetton is known for using a diverse assortment of people in their advertising campaigns and this season is no different. One of the models featured the Benetton Spring 2013 campaign is Sudanese supermodel Alek Wek. I have had the pleasure of walking in a few runway shows with Alek and I absolutely adore her! She definitely makes the list of my top 10 favorite models that have inspired me. She is so kind and even with all of her success, she has never treated any of us younger girls like the “little people.” Doesn’t she look fab working Benetton’s colorful Spring collection?

In a fun video interview she speaks openly about her life and what the word “color” means her. She also reveals that, like many of us, she chooses outfit colors based on her mood. One of the things that makes this video so unique and inspirational is this quote from Alek: “You have to be able to accept yourself bad and good because there is no perfect.” Well said! I couldn’t agree more.
