As a writer, director, filmmaker, and mom to two rambunctious girls, Karla Davis is busy 24/7. The creative redhead—often seen in retro-styled threads with a bright red lip and thick cateye—got her start at Turner Studios and now freelances to spend more time with her kids. Her keen cinematic eye has elevated her Instagram account @mintkarla into a picturesque moodboard featuring her two stylish daughters. Family moments and matching clothing have attracted more than 210,000 followers, who stand by for glimpses of her fashionable family.
