In 2010, I first caught sight of Salieu Jalloh on BET’s Centric “Model City” that profiles the life of the beautiful Black and Latino male models of New York City’s Red Model Management. I watched this Sierra Leone born model with “brown cocoa skin” walked the runways from New York to Paris, modeled for ad campaigns like United Colors of Benetton and Sean John; and living up his dream as a successful male model…all the while dealing with the hardships of creating a relationship with his estranged father. Salieu displayed a character of strength, wisdom, and compassion on “Model City” that made his fashion fans fell in love with him. Since the show aired, he has continued to blaze the model trail walking in Fashion Weeks for New York, Paris, and Milan; ad campaigns for Bloomingdales and Kenneth Cole; and being ranked on Model.com’s Top 50 Male Models. He is the poster child for the Exquisite.
