Nigerian born, Adeola Ariyo started her career in 2005 in the Nokia Face Of Africa competition and has been modelling internationally ever since.
Adeola spends her time between London, Cape Town and Nigeria.
Her appointment as Brand Ambassador for Elizabeth Arden has catapulted her from “busy working model” to an African personality.
Adeola has been able to put her hard won status to work for charity, raising awareness for projects like “The Lunchbox Fund”, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a daily meal for orphaned and vulnerable school children in townships and rural areas of South Africa.
She is also a judge for the Elizabeth Arden “Make a Visible Difference” Campaign, searching for local organizations making a difference in their respective communities.
