ActressNew York City, New YorkStory & Photos by Lauri LevenfeldStyling by Tanevery Smith

If you haven’t heard about New York’s hottest new actress Deborah Ayorinde, you are about to. Her career-changing role in Marvel’s latest project LUKE CAGE premiered in September and has everyone’s eyes on Ayorinde. And it is the influence of her mother and two sisters that has ignited a fiery and fierce passion within Deborah to be a woman committed to her art and dedicated

to her community. In the flurry of everything fabulous for NY Fashion Week this fall, my team met up with Ayorinde to photograph a true “dream shoot” at Tommy Pier (celebrating the collaboration of Tommy Hilfiger and Gigi Hadid) under the carnival’s 40 ft. Ferris wheel and runway lights. I am pretty sure, no one had as much fun as we did.
