Yaya DaCosta Tributes Legendary Artists and Entertainers in New Shoot


We'll have to wait until the weekend to see if actress/model YaYa DaCosta pulls off her transformation into Whitney Houston, but the America's Next Top Model alum can posed beautifully for a series of portraits she posted on her Instagram account.


She hashtagged the portraits #ImEveryWoman and recreated classic photos featuring Frida Kahlo, Meryl Streep, Pam Grier, Lucille Ball, Earth Kitt, Nina Simone, and Naomi Campbell.

I AM FRIDA.

Other-worldly talent. Understated sensuality. Passionate politics.

Thank you, Frida Khalo, for leading by profound example and inviting us to critically examine ourselves and the world through our own versions of self portraiture.


I AM MERYL STREEP.

Unmatched mastery. Precocious wisdom. Sophisticated taste.

Thank you, Mama Meryl, for giving every character life as real as the breath miraculously given each of us at birth.


I AM EARTHA KITT.

Feline friskiness. Syrupy femininity. Unapologetic bossiness.

Thank you, Miss Kitt, for fearlessly making showbiz love you for the quirky things that made you unique and for your unwillingness to settle for anything less than the best, in others and in yourself.


I AM NINA SIMONE.

Sonic alchemy. Soul-wrenching pitches. Brutal honesty.

Thank you, Nina Simone, for singing truth to power, for teaching, and for touching even the coldest of hearts with your exquisite voice and light.


I AM NAOMI.

Ethereal beauty. Unwavering dedication. Inextinguishable fire.

Thank you, Naomi Campbell, for being the only reason I ever had the nerve to think I could model (you, and Auntie Iman, of course), and for inspiring us all, through your ageless allure, to be fierce! I love you!!


I AM LUCY.

Irresistible charm. Vaudevillian genius. Comedic abandon.
Thank you, Lucille Ball, for being an ambassador for diversity on television and for making America laugh hysterically for decades.


I AM PAM GRIER.

Natural curves. Unabashed sexiness. Ruthless courage.

Thank you, Pam Grier, for being a true pioneer for women in action in film.
