The list of Nigerian icons cannot be complete without the name Oluchi Oweagba. The mother of one, who is just making a return to the runway, became the face of Africa at the age of 16. Since then Oluchi has become one of the most sought-after models in the world and she has graced the cover of many international magazines like Nylon, Marie Claire, Allure, Vogue, and ELLE among many others. Oluchi was the face of campaigns for Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, Gianfranco Ferré, Gap, and the like.
Her runway experience has been with John Galliano, Christian Dior, Shiatzy Chen, Chanel, and Giorgio Armani among others. What a wholesome achievement for the wife of Italian fashion designer, Luca Orlandi. But not many think the recent pictures, which announced her return to the modeling world after maternity leave, are wholesome. While many do not see anything wrong with the pictures, some bad mouths are calling them “indecent.” “What is the big deal if Oluchi decides to bare it all in the course of her profession?” asks a professional photographer. With what Oluchi stands for, is there anything wrong with this pose?
