Whether Lynn is in the recording studio, writing or designing clothing for her Star Heart and Faith Hope Dreams Brands, she is always looking for ways to be inclusive, celebrate our differences, and empower others.
Lynn’s vision for this most recent project was to hire models whose inner beauty shined even brighter than their outer beauty. It’s important to Lynn to ensure that the whole team embodied The Star Heart and Faith Hope Dream brands’ messages of empowerment, resilience, strength and unity.
We believe that true beauty is illuminated from the inside out!
The multi-talented team of models included: Tanaye White, Meghan Tieff, Taōfik Lucas-Walker and Shawn Mallary. The models and the exclusive Star Heart and Faith Hope Dreams products were photographed by renowned photographer, Roy Cox.
MEET TANAYE WHITE!
Tanaye hasn’t always been a model. Before her career as a top-model, Tanaye worked as a Senior Communications Analyst for government agencies and international defense contractors.
Tanaye now traverses between Washington, D.C. and New York City modeling and sharing tips on fashion, fitness and empowerment with her large YouTube and Instagram followings. Tanaye also consults with small businesses through her digital marketing agency.
Tanaye had a blast with Lynn’s team saying, “Shooting for the brand was such a fun day filled with great energy; from the photographer to the other models.” When Tanaye isn’t working she enjoys shopping for the best deals, perfecting her HTML/CSS skills, and hunting for the best seafood & donut shops.
