Sara Nuru (born August 19, 1989 in Erding, West Germany) is a German fashion model. She was the winner of the fourth cycle of Germany's Next Top Model.
During highschool, a friend of Nuru's persuaded her to participate in the fourth cycle casting of Germany's Next Topmodel in Munich. Nuru was chosen as one of the finalists and won jobs for Sony Ericsson and Gillette during the competition. On May 21, 2009, Nuru was announced as the fourth cycle's winner and the first Ethiopian winner. Unlike the three previous winners of Germany's Next Topmodel, Nuru did not win a modeling contract with IMG Models, but with the Heidi Klum GmbH, whose manager is Heidi's father Günther Klum.
Before Nuru won Germany's Next Topmodel, she had already been given the opportunity to gain experience as a model for friendly designers after she was approached by a photographer when she was 15 years old. She appeared in a fashion show held in Dresden which also featured cycle 3's winner Jennifer Hof.
