An Exclusive Interview with Michelle Doe

Michelle Doe is a socialite, an actress and a former blogger. The socialite gave us exclusive look into her creative space. Check out our interview below:  Congratulations on your July 26 photoshoot! Can you please tell me about the photoshoot “who” and where the inspiration came from?  Ans: Wow, thanks for the recognition!! It was actually a collaboration with one of my favorite Liberian designers “MssGlam”. She was the mastermind, I think I was just a vessel of her vision. We wanted to depict a style of dressing in rural parts of Liberia that young women would only tie lappa with beads, and other traditional markings we don’t see every day but we wanted it to make sense for July 26 so body paint was easy for us to portrait that. What’s the main message to take away from your photoshoot?  Ans: I just want you to look beyond the boobs and see the beauty in our own culture for once. What do you enjoy the most about being a part of the Liberian entertainment industry?
