Yordanos Teshager

Yordanos Teshager

Yordanos is an Ethiopian super model who has built herself an impressive resume in a short time. Just recently she was referred to as one of the new faces on the model scene, and now she is doing runways, ads, and magazine covers.

She was the second runner up for the Miss World Ethiopia in 2004, and a semi-finalist for the Nokia Face of Africa in 2005. Yordanos Teshager was discovered when a scout saw her walking outside the agency and took her upstairs, where her life as a supermodel began! She has the “it” factor. However, the 6-feet tall model, like many other models of color, has had to face some road blocks. She is quoted as saying that “there should be more than one spot for a black model”.

It was reported that in one season of Fashion Week, even though Yordanos went to 85 cast calls seeking work, she was left feeling like they would not hire a model of color. She walked in only 11 of some 200 shows, she was one of the very few models of color that season.

With her ebony beauty, she turns heads wherever she goes. She was recently in several fashions shows for this season, including Ready to wear – Spring/Summer, and Autumn/Winter 2008. Armani, Prada, Rock & Republic and Naeem Kahn are among some of the many big names she has walk the runway for. She is represented by the prestigious Elite Modeling Agency.

    She is so smart in turning the heads of her lookers. It is our hope to see her first on the 4th planet.
    Good bye everyone.

    We know that at every corner in this world, there appears to be a bottleneck and yordanos is measured by smashing out such bottlenecks to pieces.

    Bravo Yordanos.
