Gorgeous women looking empowered. Drake‘s new Video for NICE FOR WHAT, the Track sampling Lauyrn Hill‘s Ex-Factor, features a star-studded Cast of familiar faces. Tiffany Haddish, Tracee Ellis Ross, Emma Roberts, Issa Rae, Bria Vinaite, Zoe Saldana, Olivia Wilde, Letitia Wright and several more appear in the Clip, reminiscent of George Michael‘s Freedom! 90.
After Director Sean Baker discovered her on Instagram, life has changed forever for Cannabis Entrepreneur-turned-Actress BriaVinaite. The 24-year-old hailing from New York City walked into her role in acclaimed TheFlorida Project with no acting experience and in three weeks transformed into tough-talking, hustling single mom Halley, in a performance that won’t soon be forgotten.
While she was just in the City TIFF ’17 promoting her first ever Film with WillemDafoe and brilliant child actor Brooklynn Prince, she is back to represent the cast and crew of TheFlorida Project, accepting the Toronto Film Critics Association Awards for BestPicture and Supporting Actor (Dafoe). TIFF’s Cameron Bailey filled hosting duties, quoting many noted female voices in the wake of #TimesUp.
Dressed in a colourful coat and graphic bodysuit by Discount Universe,Vinaite was every bit the colourful personality she exudes online in her Social Media. And she was super gracious to stop for a quick Snap!
