Deborah Ayorinde

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.

Cara Santana

Actress & Founder of the Glam AppWest Hollywood, CAStory & Photography by Lauri LevenfeldMakeup by Ashley Schaeffer & Hair by Taary Moy of The Glam App

I am not one for using the term “fierce” but when you talk about Cara Santana, the word perfectly describes this self-made actress, entrepreneur and beauty expert. An actress by trade, Santana has used her industry smarts to cater to the Hollywood world and beyond through creative business centered around necessity and dreaming in all aspects of fashion and glam. And with her blog CaraDisclothed, Cara boldly uses her persona and messaging to stand up for women (#imwithher) and girls everywhere (see her recent note to Vogue), acting as a strong female model to all around her. With a Netflix series in the can (co-starring Drew Barrymore) for early 2017, we should see a whole lot more of this lady soon.
