Ava Duvernay For ELLE’s Women In Hollywood Issue
It’s that time of the year again! For the past 22 years, ELLE magazine has honored women who are making major moves in Hollywood via their ‘Women In Hollywood‘ issue. Selma director Ava DuVernay is one of this year’s honorees.
Paola Kudacki lensed DuVernay for this issue. Styling was courtesy of Simon Robins. Below are some excerpts:
On her film, Venus vs. Venus:
“It was fascinating to really explore Venus Williams as the first of her kind, the first to break down the wall—so young, so graceful, so gracious, so at the top of her game.”
On the process of creating the Oscar winning Selma:
“It was important to me when I took over the film and rewrote the script that there were those silences and spaces where these icons are being people.”
