After appearing on American Horror Story: 1984, looks like Angelica Ross has a little more horror in store for us. The actress, and founder of TransTech Social Enterprises, is now appearing in a thriller-themed photo campaign for Louis Vuitton’s latest collection.
Following in the footsteps of Pose co-star Indya Moore, who has developed a close relationship with the brand its creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere, Ross fronts a fictional horror book: The Escape Room, "When the future knocks, Open the door!” Maybe it’s a little sci-fi as well?
“I asked Louis Vuitton if I could rock my natural hair in an Afro and they came back with an enthusiastic YES,” Ross wrote to Twitter about the campaign.
Moore also tweeted about the project: “Feast your eyes,” they wrote. “Legendary casting of dark skin black trans women by Louis Vuitton x Nicolas G. Angelica Ross slays in high fashion & high afro giving us what we literally have been looking for !! I cannot wait to see this in stores.”
This only the latest high fashion success of the Pose crew. While everyone has been talking about — and dressing — Billy Porter for various red carpets, the women of the cast have been booking jobs left and right. Indya Moore has worked with Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton and more. Janet Mock and Dominique Jackson have both posed as faces of Valentino. And now it’s Angelica’s turn! This is what we love to see.
The Vuitton campaign, created for the brand’s Pre-Fall 2020 collection also features Sophie Turner, Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd, Jaden Smith, and more.
