Born on August 1, 1982 in Nigeria & discovered in at the age of 17 in 1998 after winning the "Face Of Africa" contest. Oluchi then signed with Elite Model Management. Since then she has graced the covers of Italian Vogue, i-D, ELLE, Untold, and Surface, she was also featured in Nylon, Marie Claire & Allure. She also became the face of campaigns for Gianfranco Ferré, Gap, Express, Banana Republic, and Ann Taylor, as well as working for Victoria's Secret.

The thing I love most about Oluchi is her long long legs and her amazing skin. The colour of her skin is so beautiful and makes her stands out on every runway she walks.

The first show I really noticed Oluchi in was the Victoria's Secret Show. Beautiful smile & a great walk, in my opinion she stole the show. I decided to put up the 2007 show as it features Oluchi, but it was also one of my favourite Victoria's Secret Shows.
