Yaya Dacosta

Checkout  Yaya Dacosta of Season 3 America’s Next Top Model,  8 page Fashion Spread in June Issue of Essence. Yaya model turned actress is wearing some of this season’s hottest spring fashions by Nicole Miller, Stella McCartney and Burberry. 

Yaya, may not have won the position of becoming America’s Next Top Model, and as you can see, that hasn’t stopped the progress of her career. Yaya appeared in an episode of Ugly Betty last year,  and is appearing alongside Julianne Moore and Annette Benning in the “The Kids Are All Right” set to release in July.  Make sure you stay watching this Young Vixen on the Rise, as I am sure she has a lot in store over the next few years.

  1. She appeared on 7 episodes of Ugly Betty. Strred in "Take the Lead" years ago, "Honeydripper" alongside Danny Glover, starred in a Lifetime Special called "Racing For Time:" to great reviews, appeared alongside Leslie Uggams in "First Breeze of Summer" on Off Broadway for which she won an award. She also appeared in "The Messenger" with Woody Harrelson and will be appearing in "Tron" coming out later this year.
    The world may have been introduced to her on that modeling show, but what a testament she is to the preserverance of an actor/ artist born and raised in New York City!
    Can't wait to continue to see her star rise!

  2. I love Yaya! She should have won ANTM. It's nice to know she's still on the scene.
