Indya Moore’s quickly gone from the breakout actress of Ryan Murphy’s Pose to a full-out style star in her own right. If you need a reminder of her red carpet prowess, just take a look at the glittering silver Louis Vuitton number she wore to the Golden Globes earlier this year.
Now, Moore is in the running to become your new favorite video girl, too. The actress just made a brief cameo in the video for Chicago-based singer-songwriter and poet Jamila Woods’s new single, “Etta,” directed by Emmy nominee Fatimah Asghar, creator of web series Brown Girls, which HBO picked up for a development deal in 2017 (she’s also Woods’s best friend).
True to its name, “Etta” is an ode to the iconic singer Etta James. In brief moments throughout the visual, Woods and Moore lean into the old school glamour of James’s heyday by donning feather boas and sequined gowns. For the majority of the video though, Woods is dressed like Catwoman in a slick leather jean jacket and pants combo (and yes, cat ears included).
Asghar said that she wanted to pay homage to Kitt’s uncompromising spirit with the new project. “As Eartha taught us, being feminine isn’t just one thing—it’s an incredible range. That energy permeates the video,” said Asghar. This same spirit extends to Woods’s wardrobe, too—she can pull off a catsuit just as easily as she can a Kitt-inspired dress.
