Nina Davuluri

Filmmaker, Activist, Speaker, and Former Miss America
Nina Davuluri

Nina Davuluri is an acclaimed filmmaker, activist, actor, & entrepreneur. Her most recent venture combines the network she has cultivated, her love for advocacy, and disrupting global beauty standards by producing the documentary, #COMPLEXion, released on Amazon in February 2023. As a global leader in redefining beauty standards, she spearheaded a campaign against colorism, #SeeMyComplexion. This led to her being invited by the CEO of L’oreal to join the L’oreal Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Board, which she currently serves on. Since then, she went to Harvard Business School to study the Business of Entertainment, Media, & Sports. Nina truly believes entertainment & media are the most impactful mediums to create lasting change. To further her mission of dismantling beauty standards, Nina gave a viral TED Talk, The Cost of Beauty From A Miss America, fighting against toxic beauty standards & the harmful effects social media has had on perpetuating these standards. Being 8 years removed from winning Miss America, Nina realized that there is a significant cost to beauty that is never discussed. As someone who was deeply entrenched in the beauty industry, she understands the unique voice she has in order to continue leading this conversation & increase representation in mainstream media. Nina is humbled by her experiences and excited to continue her journey in the filmmaking, advocacy, & entertainment arenas. In her spare time, Nina enjoys walks in the West Village with her rescue pup, Dobby and moonlighting as #SousChefNina!
