Vixen Chat: Models Devyn, Sandra, and Ebony Talk Oxygen’s ‘The Face’

Ebony Smith

VIBE Vixen: What would this win mean to you?
It would be a great start to a career. The Face is meant to be the beginning, and that’s what draws me to the show. If I win, I’ll be the face of the brand, and when you’re the face of a brand, people are going to notice you.

What has been the craziest response you’ve received since the shows aired?
Someone made the comment about me having 12 children. I would like to clarify that I have two children, an amazing fiancé and a little one on the way. I have two children from a previous relationship that just did not work out. I think what throws people off is that I do have two children and I’m still going after my dream. I’m not giving up.

If you could do a shoot for any fashion line, which would it be?
My best friend from the time I was in 5th grade is a clothing designer. She’s been making clothes for me since we were 10 years old, and I wanted for the longest time to be her muse. There are so many designers out there that have already made it, but that would mean so much to me.

What do you think this show has taught you about yourself?
It definitely taught me that I have more patience than I thought. I’ve worked with mentally handicap children and I love it, but I’ve always told myself that I will never work with a group of adults. I can’t stand being around adults, but being on the show made me realize, it’s really not bad at all.

What do you think is the one thing you’ve learned from working under Karolina’s guidance?
It solidified the fact that you can be a mother and have an amazing career. You don’t have to sacrifice your career for motherhood.
