Always awkward as a child and unsure of herself, Adèle Makéda's beauty unfolded over the years, just like the little ugly duckling in the fairy tale that turned into a beautiful swan!
Daughter of a prominent African diplomat, a teenaged Adèle was forced to leave Mademoiselle Jolie’s school in Paris when her mother passed away. An only child, she was soon asked to stand at her father’s side at various official functions and, therefore, learned the art of diplomacy and negotiation early in life. Living a very busy life while traveling all over the world on official business, Adèle returned to Paris in hopes that she would enjoy a glamorous break with her long-time friend Véronique Perrin, totally unaware that her life was about to change forever.
Upon her arrival, Adèle was caught in the rush of the drama that had unfolded some months prior between another of her former friends, the mysterious Kyori Sato, and Véronique. Adèle was selected on the spot to become the next face of W to replace a constantly absent Kyori. Hesitant at first due to her lack of self-confidence, this once unknown political personality would soon become the toast of the modeling industry and European social circles. Adèle’s arrival turned out to be a blessing for W Cosmetics. The bond that she had shared in school with her friend was immediately re-established the minute they saw each other. Véronique has nothing but respect for the work her friend did as a diplomatic aide and is ever so grateful that Adèle has agreed to join her at W.
Today, Adèle owes much of her self-esteem to Véronique and looks up to her as a role model. Adèle is a fun-loving but no-nonsense character and knows when it’s time to force Véronique to rest, something Adèle knows only she can accomplish. Adèle’s father wasn’t too happy to see her stay in Paris at first, but now he enjoys the fact that his daughter is truly happy where she is. Véronique Perrin, Vanessa Perrin, and Adèle Makéda have known each other for years; and, even though of very different backgrounds, both ethnic and social, they share a bond that transcends friendships: they are soul sisters.
Current Status: Adèle is getting ready to share her apartment in Paris with her mischievous cousin Dominique... And is not looking forward to it. Her uncle is not giving her much choice in the matter however. Adèle is desperately waiting for he friend Véronique to return, she misses her dearly!
