Women to Know: Entrepreneur Africa Miranda

During our month-long partnership with Refinery29, we’re putting the spotlight on incredible, motivated women who are forging new paths and juggling numerous roles with grace.

Africa Miranda is doing it all: actress, singer, spokesmodel, host, blogger, entrepreneur and hair guru and now, founder of her own skincare brand, Beauty by Africa Miranda. She’s passionate about style, storytelling and setting off for faraway destinations (she has killer airport style.) In all her roles, she says she seeks to greater visibility for women of color worldwide and inspire more opportunities to shine.

How does style help you express yourself?

One of my favorite quotes is “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak,” by Rachel Zoe. Your style tells your life story, your journey to discovering who you are.

Share a personal anecdote about the fit and feel of your Liverpool Jeans.

I’m always on a plane headed to my next adventure. While I like to be comfortable when I travel, I also want to look polished. Liverpool jeans are super stylish yet comfortable enough to wear on a cross-country flight. I can step off a plane and head right to a meeting, casting or an event!

What’s one way you’d like to make a difference in the world?

I would like to continue making a difference in the representation of women of color in the world. Making sure that every opportunity I receive opens the door for other women who look like me.

What’s one piece of advice you’d give to women about style?

Only buy and wear clothing you LOVE. You will never regret the purchase and you will always feel amazing when you have it on.

Life motto?

Step Up, Step Out, and SHINE!
