17-year-old Sunshine Coast based Rui Dalton has been causing quite the stir... The half Maori half Serbian beauty was literally scouted two weeks ago. With one picture placed up on Black's facebook page last Friday, Rui has recieved numerous agency and editorial enquiries from around the world. His mother agent, Hunter Models, is pacing him out having only placed him so far with Dallys Models in his home state of Queensland, Australia. Rui will be keeping a low profile as he finishes his final year of high school but we can confirm that you will be spotting him in the next issue of Black - a very special issue indeed! In the meantime, freshly inspired from his Val Garland M.A.C masterclass Thom Kerr teamed up with regular Black contributor Sarah Birchley to create Rui's first editorial! With hair by Iggy Rosales and beauty by Vivianne Tran - it's Game of Thrones chic meets Hip Hop street - shot at Red Eclipse Studios in Brisbane.
