Alek Wek is 41, and she doesn’t care who knows it. “The party’s just getting started,” Wek tells Jane Mulkerrins. “To see diversity finally kicking in and being embraced is amazing,” she says. “We’re not there yet – there’s still some way to go, but…” We say ‘Amen’, Alek.

The South Sudanese model was first shot by Steven Meisel as part of a story for Vogue Italia in 1996. A year later she was the first African model to appear on the cover of American ELLE.
