We Love Jeneil Williams


It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged about anything.

Since The beginning of my Mom’s recovery from her illness I have relocated to My hometown of Detroit.

It’s been interesting to say the least.

I am happy to add that I am now totally immersed in its rich art scene.

And after a very long hiatus (1 year & 1/2) I feel a fresh energy surrounding me, inspiring me.

So I’d like to start my blogs back up again.

I hope you enjoy.

This Blog is dedicated to “the Other Model” 🙂

Enjoy.

“Pulse model Jeneil Williams cemented her claim as one of the world’s most important black models and a superstar in the making when she was selected by Italian Vogue for their special issue on black models to be published in July.

Shot by the revered Steiven Meisel in New York this Wednesday, Jeneil is elated to carry the Caribbean’s flag in this regard.

To be recognised by Italian Vogue as one of the handful of hot black models expected to set the pace in the years to come, is a most uncommon achievement and Jeneil will be justly proud. For an encore, she shot a multi-page editorial for Essence magazine a day later. This is Jeneil’s second Vogue, as she shot American Vogue two months ago, also in New York.

Jeneil was always a pace-setter. On her arrival in New York 18 months ago, she was selected by Benetton for their campaign. Immediately, the edgy, dark chocolate stunner, was summoned by Anna Wintour, Vogue’s Editor in Chief, for a most crucial once over. After Mario Testino, arguably the world’s most respected photographer, requested a meet, the writing was on the wall.

List of accomplishments
A multiple magazine covergirl, Jeneil’s list of accomplishments, other than Italian and American Vogue, Essence, Cosmo and Bennetton campaign, include the cover and 20 pages of Italian fashion bible BNM, Japan’s Neutral magazine, the cover of SHE Caribbean and America’s Trace. She has been Models.com World Model of the Week on two occasions”.
