Known for her unique smile, she styled her turtleneck dress featuring a white fringed skirt with matching Christian Louboutin pumps.

The daughter of an African-American father and a New Zealander mother of Māori descent, she was joined by her brother Sergio Darcy Lane.

“I’ve had people call me a house slave. People think I’m not black or white enough. Or professionally they’re like, ‘Oh, she’s mixed. She can’t play this white role,’ or ‘It’s just we want a black girl, but you’re too light, and we won’t get enough credit for a black girl’,” she told Teen Vogue about her ethnicity.

“I was not a part of it, I didn’t look like everyone else, I didn’t care about the things they cared about. It’s very white and uniform, you wear the same things, do the same things. It has this weird thing where you can just get stuck there. Everyone in Frisco gets trapped there in that mentality,” she told The Guardian about settling down in Frisco, a city in Texas and part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area, after her parents divorced when she was young.

“I don’t know how to speak on it yet,” she added about her challenging childhood.

“I didn’t have that type of upbringing. I read books in my closet, I didn’t have a personalized room. Tattoos were probably the most open way to express what I’m into and about. I waited until I was 18, and it went downhill from there.”

One month earlier, she rocked Christian Louboutin‘s ‘Toubootfrou’ boots. Sasha Lane picked another hot pair of shoes for the premiere of The Miseducation of Cameron Post at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.

“We really inspire each other, and she’s just such a breath of fresh air,” Chloë Grace Moretz told Vulture about Sasha Lane after the Sundance premiere of the 2018 drama film directed by Desiree Akhavan.

“I definitely connected to it. [Chloë] has two gay brothers, and me being gay, it was something we wanted people to be aware of. Not many people know that there are still conversion therapy camps out there,” Sasha added about the movie.
