>> Another familiar face has been revealed as a participant to Vogue Italia's all-black-model issue: Liya Kebede (left).  She's shooting with Steven Meisel today, and then heading off to Europe in June for another movie role.


This time, the role will be a stretch.  She'll be playing Somalian model Waris Dirie (right), who was the face of Chanel Allure perfume and appeared in the Pirelli calendar twice. 

The movie, Desert Flower, is based on Waris' autobiography of the same name which chronicles her childhood in the Somali desert, her entrance into modeling, and her role as a United Nations spokeswoman against circumcision. 

Waris most recently made headlines for a brief disappearance in March.  Another fun fact: She's Iman's cousin.
