Lifetime’s early-2015 biopic Whitney Houston (working title)—directed by the singer’s Waiting to Exhale costar Angela Bassett and starring former America’s Next Top Model contestant Yaya DaCosta—just began shooting. But DaCosta has already re-created the iconic cover of the pop diva’s 1987 Whitney album. And her modeling background came in handy for the quick shoot. Laughs the star, “I just looked at the picture and did the pose!” Somewhere Tyra is smizing proudly.
