She’s got a tousled mullet, flashy makeup, flamboyant clothes and exuberant charisma that makes her unique.
But what really sets Dani Miller apart, it’s her smile, her famous identity mark. Gucci’s 2019 campaign would change not only the course of her career, but also her whole life.
The artist could finally feel some self-acceptance and personal growth as her smile, which caused her to be mocked and bullied when she was a child, was now being celebrated by an international brand and many people around the world. But before reaching the stardom with Gucci, she had been on the New York garage-punk scene for several years, challenging conventional beauty standards.
Born in California, she was later adopted in New York. By the age of 20, she was quitting drugs and working for Darren Aronofsky, director of films like Requiem for a Dream, The Black Swan and Noah.
