Meet Malaika Firth the top model of Spring 2014 Fashion Week. Watch our exclusive Malaika Firth backstage video and interviews on her on her journey at her very first fashion season at New York, Milan and Paris Spring 2014 fashion week. Malaika walked in 56 of the top Spring 2014 fashion runway shows including Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Roberto Cavalli, Anthony Vaccarello, Marni, Prada and Lanvin. It was impossible not to notice her grace, confidence and beauty on the runway.
Malaika is the 19 year old British model who has been hailed as “the next Naomi Campbell”. She was born in Kenya, and moved to London when she was just 7 years old. Her parents are from a mix of cultures – British, Ungandan, Swiss, Seychelles and Kenyan. Malaika is proud of her diverse heritage, “I have this mix in me and I’m so proud to be a mixed race. I think alot of mix race girls out there are insecure about their color and they should be proud and happy that they are both.”

Get the hot look of Prada Spring 2013. Check out our Allure video at Prada Spring 2013 fashion show in Milan with makeup artist Pat McGrath and hairstylist Guido Palau. Intense red lips and a tomboyish French twist brought an edge to Prada’s elegant, Asian influenced collection. Pat McGrath created manga inspired lip using a matte electric red lipstick – she used CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Hot. For extra pop she used an electric pink cream and pressed that into the center of the lips. To give the models mouth look even more voluptuous she added a thin line of white theatrical paint along the cupids bow.
