The Girls Of Benetton Spring Summer 2010: Atong Arjok And Ajak Deng

Written By: Nani HapaYou're not seeing double: models Atong Arjok and Ajak Deng strike a stunning pose together in the Benetton Spring Summer 2010 campaign photographed by Josh Olins. Despite sharing a Sudanese heritage, the two supermodels who are both following in the steps of pioneer Alek Wek could not be more different. Fresh faced Ajak Deng is a relative newcomer to the fashion scene—she fled Sudan as a refugee, and immigrated to Australia, with dreams to one day rule the runway. Today, she is living her dreams: "This is freedom for me. I've got to do what I've always wanted to do and I thank God for that."

The striking Atong Arjok was born in the States (California), and discovered in Los Angeles. Having already been featured in ad campaigns for brands such as Sephora, Estee Lauder, and Target, walked the runway for designers such as Phillip Lim, Diane von Furstenberg, and Lacoste, and appeared in magazines such as Trace, Glamour, and Vogue Italia, there's no denying Atong has that "it" factor.

Combine these two striking Sudanese beauties, and the result is a stunning campaign! For more information, visit
