Slacker Chic of the Week: Alek Wek

Photobucket
Normally I do not like to make models Slacker Chic of the Week, but for Alek, I will always make an exception. Why? Because this Sudanese goddess is not like other models. Not only does she look like some genetically superior superbeing, but she has the ability to be both uber edgy and high fashion or simply let her naturally radiant personality shine, depending on what the occasion calls for. Not only has she walked for some of the biggest fashion houses in the biz (such as Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior), but Alek recently added desinger to her list of credentials with her Wek 1933 handbag line. This girl isn't all business though, she is also an active member of the U.S. Committee for Refugees' Advisory Council, where she helps to raise awareness about the situation in Sudan, as well as the plight of refugees worldwide. Alek is smart, gorgeous, caring, and so fierce I almost can't stand it-which is exactly why she is our Slacker Chic of the Week.
