One time ANTM contestant, model turned actress Yaya DaCosta is making headlines as the lead Lifetime’s Whitney Houston biopic directed by Angela Bassett and has been inspired by the song I’m Every Woman channelling some of the women has been inspired by.
Shot by photographer Jonathan Mannion, the campaign sees Yaya reincarnated as eight fabulous women, channelling each icon’s style and was revealed just before the movie premiered on the 17th of January.
Yaya says about the project “One of my favorite things about Whitney is how she embraced and encouraged other women, urging us to love one another, appreciate one another, and see each other as reflections of ourselves. We thought it would be fitting to pay homage to some of the great women of the world, past and present, by literally becoming “every woman” even if just for a moment.”
