More congratulations are in order for Hollywood’s favorite new starlet, the Oscar-winning Lupita Nyong’o–it was just announced that she scored her first-ever beauty campaign and is the new face of an Lancôme, reports WWD. As long as you haven’t been living under a rock, you’re aware that Lupita has been hitting home runs in the wardrobe department for the past year, nabbing a spot on pretty much everyone’s best-dressed lists, but her new campaign gives her a chance to promote beauty from the inside out.
“I am truly honoured to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history and that I have always loved,” she said via release. “I am particularly proud to represent its unique vision for women and the idea that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman’s freedom to be herself.”
It was just a matter of time before someone scooped up Lupita to represent their brand, and Lancôme is a fabulous opportunity to her and we couldn’t be more excited for the deserving actress. It may seem like she just popped on the scene but let’s not forget that she’s been working her way up the ladder for years, studying film and drama in both college and grad school, and working both in front of and behind the camera.
Being the ambassadress of Lancôme will allow her to continue to spread good vibes and be an inspiration to all girls on a much larger platform. Congrats Lupita!
