Ever since she was in that Janet Jackson video for two seconds, we’ve been spellbound by model Alek Wek, not least because of her perfectly shaped bald head. Now, at 30 (approximately 92 in model years), she’s done the only logical thing and written her memoir. Far from the I-was-just-strolling-along-in-a-suburban-mall model-discovery tale, Wek’s story features her birth amid—and eventual escape from—ethnic fighting in Sudan. Tonight she’ll read from fashion week’s most compelling tale.
