Retired model, award winning international best selling author and UN ambassador Waris Dirie appears in this year's Swedish fashion house H&M's Christmas holiday campaign with Ethiopian model Liya Kebede.
Waris spoke about the campaign
''This summer, I received an invitation from H&M to do a photo shoot together with my friend Liya Kebede, who plays me in the movie Desert Flower.
We had a lot of fun shooting this campaign in the Milk Studios in New York City with photographer Daniel Jackson. You can see more pictures from this shoot on the H&M website and in H&M stores across the world.
I will invest my fee in a Waris Dirie Foundation project in Africa that I will present in January 2011.
