Pretty Dark Girl - Ataui Deng

I came across Ataui Deng while looking for pics for PDG. She is a great example of the apple doesn't fall far from the tree as her aunt is the well known model, Alex Wek. According to,
Ataui Deng (born November 11, in Khartoum, Sudan) is a Sudanese-American fashion model. She's a niece of Sudanese-British fashion model Alek Wek. Together with her family she moved to the United States (San Antonio, Texas) in 2004. Just 4 years later her modelling career started when she signed a contract with Trump Model in New York.
Since then she walked the catwalk for renowned names such as Zac Posen, Lacoste, Christian Dior and John Galliano. In 2010 she closed the s/s 11 Lanvin show in Paris, alongside Ajak Deng, Jeneil Williams, Melodie Monrose, and Jourdan Dunn.
She also appeared in magazines such as Teen Vogue, V Magazine, and appeared on the cover of French Revue de Mode. Furthermore she was shot for campaigns by fashion brands Kenzo and Benetton, among others.
She's currently signed with Trump Models in New York, and with Elite Models in Paris and Milan.
