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)
. Busy, busy.
But, did we also mention she married seven time All-Star team member and New York Knicks player Carmelo Anthony? And, that the two of them have a 7-year-old son together? Yes, a lot has changed since those TRL
days. Ahead, we chat with La La about finding balance when you've got a million things to do, why you should dress according to your mood
, and why she can't get enough of the Olsen twins.Photographed by Ted Emmons; Hair by Neeko at Tracey Mattingly; Makeup by Carissa Ferreri at Tracey Mattingly; Styling by Jeff Kim.
