LisaRaye McCoy is hands down the original IT Girl!

The iconic actress, best known for her starring role as Diana “Diamond” Armstrong in The Players Club, has been capturing the hearts of television and movie fans since the ’90s.

Her work as an actress, designer and host has made her one of the most beloved, influential and respected Black women in the entertainment industry.

LisaRaye’s beauty and all-white fashion looks have never gone unnoticed, nor has her talent.

The 55-year-old mogul has also been seen on screen in projects such as: The Wood, Single Ladies, Tyler Perry’s A House Divided, Ballers on HBO and Fox Soul’s Cocktails With Queens – just to name a few.

She’s also launched several businesses including a lingerie line, LisaRaye Glamour hair, a line of curve-friendly PZI jeans, and LR Home Styles.

Clearly, that Diamond advice: “make the money, don’t let it make you” stuck with her, okay!?
