    If you were a teenager in the late '90s, your initial introduction to La La is likely owed to her cohosting gig on MTV's Total Request Live. Since then, the multitalented lady's gone on to act in a handful of feature films and launched her own makeup line and relatively new fashion label 5th & Mercer (sold exclusively at Shopbop).
