The Rise of Sasha Lane

Here we go again: the second edition of “The Rise of”, introducing you to the one and only Sasha Lane.

April 06, 2017
We’ve decided, once again, to dive into the fountain of youth: this time around presenting you with the cool and the fearless Sasha Lane. The soon-to-be-22-year-old Sasha Bianca Lane might not be your typical millennial, but then again, isn’t the new generation all about breaking the molds and “doing you boo boo?” Well, who can honestly keep up?

The recent breakout star gained recognition after her appearance as the lead actress in the film, American Honey, which premiered at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. After Sasha’s stellar performance alongside Shia LaBeouf and Riley Keough in the Andrea Arnold’s film, her career really took off—she won Best Actress at the British Independent Film Awards for the roll, by the way. But what sets her apart from others her age is that she didn’t start out with thousands of followers on social media: she wasn’t Instagram famous and her career wasn’t launched in the “normal” Millennial way. All thanks to American Honey, she has since appeared on the covers of i-D, Teen Vogue, Dazed, and friggin Vogue Italia! And that’s not the half of it.

You might recognize her from the Louis Vuitton Series 6 campaign editorial that featured her with other fashionable notables, even starring in La Qoolside’s “Make it Boom.” Or, have you seen the Coach x Rodarte collection yet? Fronted by Sasha, the collection might not be to our particular taste but let’s just say that you need to judge this one for yourself.

The Houston-born and Dallas-reared actress’ career has only just begun, and with a tons of films underway, such as the Hunting Lila, Shoplifters of the World, and the short Born in the Maelstrom, we can definitely expect to see more of this raw talent in the coming year.

Until then, catch her in American Honey. That’s a must!
