Stephanie absolutely exudes glowing confidence and self-love, which was one of the first things we noticed when we met this model at our open casting. Taking pride in her West African heritage, she works to change the cultural standards of beauty on her ever-growing social platform and support designers of color at her couture showrooms, Daughters of Nonyelum. While we follow her personal Instagram for style and beauty inspiration (few can rock a coral lip quite like Stephanie), the account for her Houston and Beverly Hills-based businesses, which she runs with her sister, is our guilty pleasure. Peek @daughtersofnonyelum and swoon over evening wear gowns and red-carpet worthy dresses for women of all sizes along with us!

My new beauty ideal is just embracing who I am as not only an American woman but also a West African woman.

My ultimate denim icon is me…and JLo!

It’s ok to be from African descent! You don’t have to cow down and not be confident about it.
