Fab Face: Ubah Hassan

If you picked up Vogue Italia's All Black July issue, you may recall seeing Somalian model Ubah Hassan in it. Since then, the 21-year-old has been handpicked by designer Ralph Lauren as the face of his Spring '09 ad campaign. She even closed his Spring catwalk show. Lucky girl.

But Ubah's life hasn't always been this rosy. In 1991, during political troubles in Somalia, her mother fled the country with her sisters, while Ubah and her younger brother stayed behind with their father. The family was finally reunited in Canada in 2001. Thankfully this story has a happy ending, and Ubah being discovered is the cherry on top!
