Lifetime's Whitney Houston biopic is in full swing as Yaya DaCosta channels the late R&B diva.
Yaya DaCosta is a blast from the past as she channels Whitney Houston in Entertainment Weekly’s first look of the upcoming biopic.
The former America’s Next Top Model contestant turned actress transformed into the late singer for a taste of what’s in store for the Lifetime movie.
In the photo DaCosta dons curls, a white tank top and red lips reminiscent of the cover of Houston’s self-titled sophomore album. “I just looked at the picture and did the same pose!” said DaCosta.
The Lifetime movie is set for a 2015 release.
