Alek Wek

Today we’ll look at supermodel Alek Wek.

Alek is absolutely stunting in the colors in the first six photos above. Contrast that with the last two photos of her in orange and yellow. See the difference? Seeing Alek in red, however, gave no doubt which season she falls under, let’s take a closer look:

The first red is a muted, off-red, somewhere in-between ruby and garnet. It is an Autumn red and is doing no favors to Alek’s beautiful face. However, the second red is a true red, a primary red, a jewel look-at-me red. That red is a Winter red and Alek looks stunning in it.

Alek Wek is a Winter.

Winter

Winter people are those with cool skin undertones and dark hair. Excerpts from Beauty and the Bath:

The Winter palette has the range of all dark, vivid, and bright colors.
It also has all those very light icy colors. It holds all the primaries, being white, black, pure red, and navy. Winters do not wear most oranges well.
Light-medium browns and some camel are not the best choice for Winters.
No woman can wear a Pure White as beautifully Winter can.
