The Alluring Miss Du Plooy

Following in the footsteps of Charlize Theron (2004) and Noni Gasa (2005) the striking doe-eyed Taryn Du Plooy was 2006's South Africa's MOTO Face, the prestigious title given to the country's most glamorous figurehead representing South Africa's only national fashion platform-the 2006 Sanlam South Africa Fashion Week (SAFW). Du Plooy is more than just a pretty face. She's an athletic 19-year-old Boksburg native who is studying towards a career in Fashion Design and Retail Buying with ambitions of herself becoming a fashion designer. During her three year career as a model she's taken on ramp work for events such as the 2005 SA Fashion Week, SA Elle Paris Fashion Show and the Revlon Fire and Ice Ball in the Seychelles. Du Plooy has also appeared in notable print and television campaigns for premier international brands, and is no stranger to magazine shoots, with fashion spreads for Style and Y-Mag and many others. Du Ploy cites her versatility and professionalism among her key assets when it comes to modeling, describing herself as a "committed all-rounder." Du Plooy adds, "I've experienced and seen so much while modeling over the past few years."
