Fenty Beauty by Rihanna has finally arrived.

Ugandan Super International Model Akello Patricia has featured in the official campaign for Rihanna’s cosmetics collection which dropped on Friday 8th,  September 2017 Fenty Beauty at the Duggal Greenhouse in Brooklyn, New York.

Akello Patricia recently represented Uganda at the Mercedes Benz Johannesburg fashion week Spring Summer 2017 (#MBJFW17) hitting the runway for 21 different designers. Patricia is signed to Fusion Model Management Cape town South Africa, Muse Model Management in New York, MP in Milan, M4Models in Germany and mothered by Joram Model Management (JMM) in Uganda.

“Foundation is one of those areas in the beauty industry that has a big void for women at extreme ends of the shade spectrum. There’s this middle ground that’s covered really, really well. But then if you’re very pale or if you’re very dark, there aren’t a lot of options. And so, I wanted to make sure that women of all skin tones were covered so they could be included in what I created.” – Rihanna said

Akello Patricia appeared in the longwear foundation in a boundary-breaking shade range of 470 (Neutral). She is expected to feature at the New York Fashion Week this September. Fashionpit UG is so proud of you.
