The winner of the Face has been announced.
She is 21 year old Devyn Abdullah, a native of New York City. Abdullah is the first winner of “The Face,” Naomi Campbell’s modeling reality show.
Devyn’s win has also earned her the opportunity to front Ulta Beauty’s 2013 fall and holiday campaigns.
Reportedly the producers were glad Devyn managed to make it through the season without bodily harm from Naomi.
In fact, the iconic, yet ill-tempered, supermodel was relatively tame besides doling out a few tongue lashings to whip the aspiring models into shape.
Devyn was the cause of one of Naomi’s flare ups after announcing that she didn’t consider herself “a Black girl model.” Naomi declared the sentiment a “disgrace.”
Nevertheless, Devyn bounced back from the gaffe and ultimately won the entire competition. Although she might be out of touch when it comes to the homogenous (and often racist) industry she is now entering, Devyn seems to at least understand the magnitude of her win.
“It’s me getting my foot in the door of the modeling industry, and I’m really excited about it. I want people to love me for me, to be attracted to me for my story and where I come from and to recognize me as a businesswoman.” Abdullah is a single mother of one.
