Armed with loads of charm and Kickstarter contributions, local babe Nana Ghana filmed L.A. Woman Rising, a doc about 50 different Angelenos waking up and starting their days. It's a complex and compelling project that truly captivated us from the first frame. But, heck — would you expect anything less from a gal who has worked with James Franco and is a regular on the SoCal art scene? Didn't think so!
We've seen Ghana at nearly every museum-hosted function around town (it's hard to miss that gorgeous hair and infectious grin!), and recently we broke down and finally asked her to spill her secrets to looking so fierce, 24/7. Take a peek at her beauty tips and tricks, and we guarantee you'll be copying her style, stat! Hey — if it got Franco's attention, we're all ears.
