Beautiful People: Deun Ivory, Founder + Photographer

When Texas native Deun Ivory won a grant from VSCO in 2018, it offered her a runway into a whole world of good. The interview and portrait project she began transformed into a 501c3 organization—now The Body: A Home for Love—through which she encourages Black women heal from trauma through joy. "I believe that everything is working out in my favor," says Ivory. "And having that in the back of my mind allows me to navigate the world with so much confidence and boldness and assuredness, and I'm able to give other people permission to navigate the same way."

Beautiful People: Amanda Montell, Pop Linguist and Author

Amanda Montell is a pop linguist and a writer who lives in Los Angeles, and if her name looks familiar, staff jobs at Byrdie and WhoWhatWear (where she has profiled talent including Olivia Munn and Chloë Grace Moretz) might have helped.
