The Faithful Fashionista

Leah Darrow, former supermodel

From the hit reality TV show “America’s Next Top Model” to inspirational speaker, Leah Darrow is the self-professed 'Prodigal Daughter.' For Leah, her fade from her Catholic faith developed from choosing a comfortable life over an extraordinary one, giving in to pop culture’s false recipe for happiness: beauty and fame. All this changed in a moment of revelation in which God allowed her to see her life clearly. This extraordinary grace gave her the courage to change.

An honors graduate from the University of Missouri, St. Louis with a BA in psychology, Leah is now studying for her master’s in theology at Ave Maria University. Leah speaks to young people about how to live with faith and perspective. Based on her own life experiences, she reminds them that with God, they can rise above society’s mixed messages and find lasting happiness.
