Interesting info...I came across
A new movie in the works...can't wait to see itLiya Kebede (left)...She'll be playing Somalian model Waris Dirie (right), who was the face of Chanel Allure perfume and appeared in the Pirelli calendar twice.
The movie, Desert Flower, is based on Waris' autobiography of the same name which chronicles her childhood in the Somali desert, her entrance into modeling, and her role as a United Nations spokeswoman against circumcision.
Waris most recently made headlines for a brief disappearance in March 2007. Another fun fact: She's Iman's cousin.
