I've been a huge fan of Yaya DaCosta Alafia, the ivy-league educated model-turned-actress, since her America's Top Model days (is that show still on the air?). She flexed her acting skills and fabulous 'fro in The Kids are Alright, an excellent movie.
I'm happy that she and her gorgeous mane are playing a civil rights activist in The Butler because that means more Yaya on the red carpet and in gorgeous editorial spreads like this one from the September issue of InStyle magazine.
Beauty, brains, talent and killer kinks. I'm looking forward to seeing more Yaya!
