Talk about SMIZING your way into a stellar career!!
Former America’s Next Top Model contestant, Yaya DaCosta was just cast as Whitney Houston in the late singer’s Angela Bassett-directed Lifetime biopic…
And she could be a dead ringer for Whit during her younger days!
Just LOOK at them together:
Since strutting her stuff on Cycle 3 of the modelicious reality competition show, Miz DaCosta has had successful roles on All My Children, Ugly Betty and in Lee Daniels’ The Butler.
We can't wait for this beauty to bring the musical legend to life on the small screen!
Ch-ch-check out more pictures of Yaya in the gallery (above!)
