Eunice is a Scottish supermodel, broadcaster and curator who has worked for top designers including Prada and Alexander McQueen. She has appeared in films such as Ab Fab: The Movie and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. She runs her own fashion label and established The Olumide Gallery in London. She was awarded an MBE in 2017 for services to broadcasting, the arts and charity.
In this film, Eunice reflects on her personal journey, and on feeling conflicted about accepting an award that celebrates the British Empire.
You can see Eunice's MBE and other objects on display in Scotland: A Changing Nation on Level 6 of the National Museum of Scotland.
