Female Model of the Month for December 2022


Blesnya Minher is a 24-year-old Central African model represented by Da Banda Model Management and Elite Model Management in New York, Paris, London, Barcelona, Milan, and Copenhagen. 

Born in Angola’s Lunda Norte province, Minher was fascinated by models and fashion from a young age. She opened an Instagram account sometime in the 2010’s to showcase her own glamor shots and selfies, and before she knew it, Minher was making her formal runway debut at the Dior Spring / Summer 2017 Fashion Show. Since then, Minher has been featured on the cover of world-class magazines like Número France, Collection Issue, and Vogue Brasil. She has appeared in popular campaigns for Hermès, Dior Beauty, Tom Ford, Calvin Klein, Versace, and Louis Vuitton, but the list doesn’t end there. Her latest campaign appearance features Minher in Bulgari’s I Believe in Wonder Holiday 2022 campaign, donning the brand’s B.zero1 diamond and gold necklace.

When not hitting the runway or posing for her next magazine cover, Minher likes to travel, cook, and share snippets of recipes with her Instagram followers.
