Whatever Happened to Naima? Oh Wait, There She Is!

Whatever Happened to Naima? Oh Wait, There She Is!


Who could ever forget the unique look of mohawked Mexican, Irish, African-American and Native-American winner of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 4? After what seems to be a three-year hiatus, Naima Mora is finally reclaiming her spot in the fashion limelight.

Despite her appearances in Covergirl ads, ELLE Magazine and Sheer Cover make-up commercials during 2006 and 2007, Mora just hasn’t had any influence in the modeling industry. Luckily, Mora recently appeared on the cover and in an editorial for Vicious Magazine in 2008. Even more recent, Mora walked in the Project Runway finale at Fashion Week for designer Joe Faris.

Rumor has it that Mora’s miniscule modeling career is due to her focus on music. As if modeling wasn’t enough, Mora is the lead singer for the unsigned band, Chewing Pics. The band’s EP was released in March of 2008. Hey Naima, do us a favor. Put down the microphone and jump back on the runway…the industry needs your face!

Thanks for the photo B5media!
