May 12, 2011 – Models, photographers, event organizers, sponsors and the media today gathered to launch The Kenyan Ford Supermodel competition (read searching for the Face of Africa) which is back!
This means that a new face will soon be unveiled -the Kenyan Face of Africa- but only after a rigorous process of selecting the beauty that best qualifies the title.
The crowning of the Face of Africa (Kenya edition) will take place on the 28th of this month and the winner will then battle it out for the overall title (Face of Africa) with other African beauties which will take place in New York some time in July.
