VIBE Vixen’s 2011 HOT 25 (Summer Edition)


Sanaa Hamri is an ethnic beauty who lies behind the camera capturing the art expressions around her. The Moroco-born music video and film director is the mastermind behind some of our favorite artists’ vid treatments. Prince, Mariah Carey, Lenny Kravitz, Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z and COmmon have all tapped this Vixen for her directing genius. Hamri has even tackled films such as Something New and Just Wright. Although these films weren’t box office hits, they were conversation starters about the ills in the Black community. If you can’t respect that…

Respect that she’s dabbled in directing for popular TV show Grey’s Anatomy. Yeah, she’s a big deal. She’s one of the few thriving women of color in film and represents to the fullest. Any other questions?
