Lena Waithe is an advocate for creatives, adamant about finding and supporting new talent. Which is why, as I was planning our L.A. Brand Stars cover shoot, I knew we needed to work with a team that really meant something to her.
I wanted to meld who I think she is as a person with the concept for the photo shoot—for her to look effortless, natural, elegant and not over-produced. To capture her strength and determination but still be intimate and candid.
