We couldn't possibly miss the opportunity to shine a spotlight on one of our favorite African models Ataui Deng (though it's never not a good time to reverse the lack of models of color trend in the industry). This month's issue of French Marie Claire features Sudan's Ataui Deng completely owning the camera with her smile and charisma in the Funky Star editorial.

If you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #AtauiDeng.
