Ubah Hassan Covers ARISE February 2010

February 9, 2010

Model and former Ralph Lauren muse Ubah Hassan appeared on the February 2010 cover edition of ARISE magazine. I am digging the blue eye makeup on her eyes and the Diana Ross-like Afro, big hair. Random thought: I do have a slight problem with her mouth being wide open as though the photographer caught her off guard. It’s a lovely cover shot all around and Ubah proudly joins the ranks of Liya Kebede, Alicia Keys, Sessilee Lopez, Naomi Campbell,Oluchi, and Alek Wek as the elite ARISE cover girls league.

Ubah later went on to launch a lucrative modeling career on the catwalk in designs by Oscar De La Renta. She appeared in the much talked about All Black Italian Vogue issue. And she already got love and support from supermodel and fellow Somalian Iman.

Fun fact: Her first name means flower. In related news, the upcoming ThisDay ARISE Fashion Show hits NY Fashion Week on Saturday February 13th at 8pm at Bryant Park! What a nice way to spend Valentine’s Day eve…
