Former America’s Next Top Model contestant Yaya DaCosta is wasting no time getting into her role as the late great Whitney Houston. Entertainment Weekly enlisted DaCosta, who will star in an upcoming Whitney biopic, to recreate the album cover of Houston’s multiplatinum 1987 album, Whitney.
No stranger to photoshoots, DaCosta absolutely nailed Whitney’s signature photo. The model- turned-actress said, “I just looked at the picture and did the pose!”
The upcoming Lifetime film, directed by biopic royalty herself Angela Bassett, has finally begun shooting and will be out in early 2015. We can’t wait to see if Yaya really brings our beloved Whitney back to life.
What do you think about Yaya’s transformation? A nail or fail?
