Liya Kebede Celebrates Her Silver Screen Debut
It looks like Liya Kebede is as passionate about acting as she is about modeling. The Ethiopian model is playing a queen in the new French flick, Sur La Piste Du Marsupilami, which translates to On The Trail of Marsupilami.
The movie is based on a series of Belgian comic books in which reporter Dan Geraldo (played by Alain Chabat) and his buddy Pablito (played by Jamel Debbouze) search for the mysterious animal, the Marsupilami, and meet Queen Paya (Kebede) along the way.
You can catch a few glimpses of Kebede in the trailer:
At the Paris premiere for the film last night, Kebede balanced a white mini skirt with a long-sleeve peasant top. Her co-stars took a more formal route in sleek suits and glam dresses. While we don’t mind the look (models can make paper bag look fabuous), Kebede’s look felt a little too casual for the red carpet. But we’re in love with the tousled waves and bright lip, so we’ll let this slide.
Okay, your turn, what do you think of her outfit?
