    Kebede rocked the cover with her striking Dior jumpsuit ensemble and a pair of killer leather boots.

    The 39-year-old model and actress was born in Ethiopia, the Daily Mail reported.

    In February this year, British Vogue broke its 12-year streak of not using a single woman of colour on its cover by featuring Jourdan Dunn.

    Puffer fish
    Unlike its moniker, Puffer fish is actually quite friendly and approachable. Unless you’re out to eat her lunch – or dessert — to be precise – then be prepared that she might raise her spikes at you. Good food is just one of her many likes, Puffer Fish also loves visiting new and familiar places around the world because she believes there are always new discoveries and adventures to be had. She considers herself one lucky ass to be able to put her editorial background to good use by sharing her travel and gastronomical adventures online via Gratenews. She hopes readers get as much enjoyment and insights from her pieces as she has writing them.
