Ivy leaguer Yaya Dacosta’s stint on America’s Next Top Model Cycle 3 served as a platform for an acting career that is on the rise. Her movie credits include “Take the Lead” opposite Antonio Banderas, “Ugly Betty” with Vanessa Williams, and a supporting role in “The Kids are All Right” starring Julianne Moore and Annette Bening. Notable fashion credits for Yaya include multiple Essence magazine editorials plus an Esquire magazine spread which named her “Woman of the Summer.” Yaya will also appear in the upcoming blockbuster remake, “TRON: Legacy” as robotic siren #3! We look forward to watching this young star’s career unravel and take off!
