Condoleezza Rice makes modelling debut with Serena Williams

Condoleezza Rice was once the most powerful woman in American politics.

But the former Secretary of State, who is also a trained classical pianist and once played piano for the Queen in Buckingham Palace, has unearthed a new talent as she makes her first foray into modelling.


Wearing a fitted jersey in the colours of her favourite American Football team, the Cleveland Browns, the politician shows off a fresh-faced appearance that belies her 57 years as she poses for the National Football League's new womenswear range.

She posted the shot on Facebook, writing: "Supporting the NFL and showing my passion for the Cleveland Browns!"

The ad campaign, entitled 'It’s My Team', also features Donald Trump's wife Melania and Serena Williams.


The tennis star also looks fabulous in the shots, showing off her athletic physique in the sportswear.

The campaign aims to encourage women to take an active interest in sport and, says NFL’s director Rhiannon Madden, is "a message of empowerment. It’s your team – not your guy’s team".

September will see the arrival of the new American Football season.
