Bow before the Queen of Pop!
Its SO FUNNY how she wore a shirt that said respect and she told the girls to be more respectful but Tyra said that Yaya needed to be more respectful with client WTF lol
Yaya is in the new movie "The Kids Are All Right" starring Mark Ruffalo and Julianne Moore. I just saw it last night and she is actually really good. She plays Mark Ruffalo's girlfriend Tanya.
Also: her skin looks amazing.
Yaya: From Top Model to Actress
Yaya DaCosta may have gotten her start as the runner up on Cycle 3 of America’s Next Top Model, but these days she’s spending her time on the big screen rather than on the catwalk. The former Top Model has been named “Woman of the Summer” by Esquire magazine and has a supporting role in the movie The Kids Are All Right (starring leading ladies Annette Bening and Julianne Moore) which was released on July 9th.
The stunning beauty also has a role in the upcoming movie Tron: Legacy and will be hitting the off Broadway stage as Olivia in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night later this month. Yaya is no stranger to the camera. She has been acting both on the big screen and in television for the past several years landing roles on All My Children, Ugly Betty and in various films.
^I was told she did extremely well in that role. ClrDeLun, who is a huge film expert, said she did very well.
I wish nothing but the best for Yaya. She's amazing and will always be one of my all-time favorites. Such a combination of beauty, talent, intelligence and cultural awareness is very rare. Ugh, just love, love, LOVE her.

She did REALLY well in The Kids Are All Right, which was an amazing movie, and everyone should see it
Still don't like her though.
Woah! Tron! Thats a big movie, too. I'm so going to see it party JUST to see Yaya.
I'm really happy that she's getting more and more film roles. She really is a naturally talented actress.
She was amazing in The Kids Are All Right.
And that's coming from someone that hates her~
I saw The Kids Are Alright and she did a really great job.
I'm not gonna act like she had some major demanding role, she did have sort of a simple role. But I still thought she was very strong and charismatic. I think she has a natural quality in her presence that commands your attention and makes you wanna see her character challenged, which is perfect for acting. I do wanna see her play a bigger role though. The character she had to play wasn't too different from her natural self, but I think her appearance on Ugly Betty proved that she can play a completely different character. I really wanna see more of her as an actress.
She's going to be featured in W as an actress on the rise. Read it here
