Oluchi Onweagba reminds us of a youngNaomi Campbellin the height of her mid-'90s supermodeldom, except that we don't get authorities involved when we see Oluchi holding a cell phone. Oluchi has appeared in several well-known fashion magazines and has graced the pages of theSports IllustratedSwimsuit Editionfor several years running.
"I think I reflect a lot of African beauty. I am African. And I am beautiful."
In Oluchi Onweagba's mother tongue, her first name means "God's work." We certainly have to agree for two reasons: 1) Who are we to dispute the translation? And, 2) just one look at her and you'll reaffirm your belief in whichever god you're partial to. While some models are so thin they pull muscles just picking up an apple, watching the curvy Oluchi strut her long legs on the catwalk is one reason to not anxiously search for the remote when you happen upon the fashion channel. With her 6'2" frame, we imagine a night out with Oluchi would involve doing whatever the hell she wanted. We're OK with that.
Oluchi Onweagba might not yet be a household name, but she's definitely on speed dial at men's magazines and fashion houses. She's made five appearances in the Victoria's Secret fashion show and has had four consecutive placements inSports IllustratedSwimsuit Edition. We happen to own all four of those issues. Go figure.
