Elaine Welteroth just won a very prestigious award for her life story. The Project Runway judge's acclaimed 2019 memoir, More Than Enough: Claiming Space for Who You Are (No Matter What They Say), won in the category of Outstanding Literary Work - Biography/Autobiography at this year's NAACP Image Awards, which were held in Pasadena, California on February 22.

The NAACP Image Awards honor is the latest in a series of major milestones for Elaine's memoir, which charts the journey of how she became the youngest person and only the second African-American ever to hold the Editor-in-Chief title in Condé Nast's 107-year history when she took the reins at Teen Vogue and transformed it into a vital voice of a generation.

 Last month, Elaine announced that More Than Enough was optioned for development into a television series by Paramount Television Studios and Anonymous Content. Elaine will co-create the series and serve as an executive producer.

"Gratitude beyond words. The ancestors were with me last night. @MORETHANENOUGH @naacpimageawards Outstanding Literary Work - Biography / Autobiography," Elaine wrote in a touching Instagram post as a caption to a photo of her beaming with her NAACP Image Awards statue.

Congratulations on it all, Elaine!
