Roc-A-Fella founder Damon Dash and fashion designer Rachel Roy have a stunning daughter named Ava Dash who has become a rising star in the modeling world.
This week she has debuted as the new face of the BCBG Holiday collection in images shared exclusively with DailyMail.com.
The catwalk siren was seen in a cream-colored crop top and matching skirt that made the most of her tiny waistline and toned abs. Ava was also seen in a cobalt blue one-arm mini dress and then in a cherry red satin dress with a rhinestone straps.
The 23-year-old budding model spoke exclusively to DailyMail.com about her first massive campaign and how she stays in such amazing shape.
‘I am so happy with this campaign! It felt particularly special to work with BCBG on my first big campaign after college as my mom’s first job out of college was a sales associate at BCBG!’ she told DailyMail.com.
‘Plus it was so fun being able to work with the amazing team to create these comfy, sexy, and effortless holiday looks.’
Her mother Rachel, who is a clothing designer and close pals with Kim Kardashian, was a role model for Ava.
‘My mom has instilled in me a sense of self-love and self-worth from a very young age. In an industry where self-esteem can be challenged, she has helped me maintain a strong sense of self. Her advice has been invaluable, encouraging me to always remain strong as well as kind,’ she noted.
Being in the spotlight is not new for her, however, as both her parents are famous – dad Damon worked with Jay-Z, after all, and he and Beyonce were always around.
‘Growing up, I always loved being in front of the camera and having an audience,’ she shared.
‘I started modeling at age 4 or 5 for my parents’ brand, Rocawear.
‘In middle school I loved music, I sang and played piano at Professional Preforming Arts School in NYC.
‘It was always a dream of mine to have a career that allowed me to express myself creatively. Currently, I’m focused on modeling, but I’m also open to the endless possibilities that the future may hold.
‘Tomorrow, I could find myself writing, starring in, or even directing a show for my dad’s television network, America Nu. You never know.’
She also talked about staying healthy and looking her best for the camera.
‘Maintaining my shape has a lot to do with my pescatarian diet, but it involves more than just what I eat – it’s about taking care of my whole self,’ she noted.
‘That means ensuring I get enough sleep, choosing foods that make me feel proud of what I put into my body, setting goals through journaling for the month, week, and year, and having a consistent skincare routine.
‘I’m truly obsessed with my mom’s new Ayurvedic skincare line, Ancient India. Using her products leaves me with a hydrated, natural glow, making me feel confident in my skin.’
And she loves a good sweat session.
‘My favorite workout is doing the ’12-3-30′ routine on the treadmill, because it allows me to carve out 30 minutes for myself and gives me a sense of accomplishment daily.’
The 12-3-30 workout was coined by YouTuber Lauren Giraldo. It consists of setting a treadmill to a 12% incline and walking at three miles per hour for 30 minutes.
‘I also love pilates because it’s fun and I always leave feeling strong and sexy. Plus you can wear the cutest sets for this type of workout.’
She has two siblings: Boogie Dash and Lucky Dash.
This week BCBGMAXAZRIA introduced model and philanthropist Dash as the brand ambassador for its Holiday 2023 Campaign.
Ava Dash ‘is celebrated not only for her familial ties but for her own impressive achievements, including campaigns with other major fashion and lifestyle brands,’ a press release said.
