And because modeling is so much more than ruling the runway for Borges, she just made history AGAIN as the first African woman to cover Elle magazine since 1997!!!
In an excerpt from the magazine's May issue, she says, "The fashion industry is here for everyone, [regardless] of color or race. When I was growing up, I never saw someone like me, and now the other girls can see someone like them. It's all about inspiration."
The Angolan beauty tweeted that she was honored to be the magazine's first African woman cover this century, and she thanked her fans for all the support.
