In October 2011, she made her stage debut in the off-Broadway production of Love Loss and What I Wore. She also starred in and executive produced five seasons of La La’s Full Court Wedding, one of VH1’s highest-rated shows, which chronicled the time leading up to her wedding to NBA star Carmelo Anthony.

On February 2, 2012, Anthony launched MOTIVES by La La, at the Market America World Conference held at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida. Inspired to create a cosmetic line for women of color ranging in color variation, Anthony’s cosmetic line consists of multiple mineral-based products for the face, cheeks, eyes, lips, and nails.

In 2013, she created a clothing line, “5th & Mercer”, a capsule collection exclusive to Shopbop.com and she continues to work on new designs for the line. In 2016, Anthony co-produced the Broadway production of Danai Gurira’s Eclipsed.
