Lupita Nyong’o for Lancôme

Lupita Nyong’o for Lancôme

Following an epic red carpet run during awards season, which saw the actress experiment with a wide array of lips colours and eye shadows thanks to her makeup artist Nick Barose, I knew it would only be a matter of time before Lupita Nyong’o was scooped up by a beauty brand.

The Oscar winner has been snapped up by French giant Lancôme, joining Julia Roberts, Penélope Cruz, Kate Winslet and Lily Collins as a celebrity ambassador for the brand this September.

Of her new appointment, the ambassadress said “I am particularly proud to represent [Lancôme’s] 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.”

Lupita will be the first woman of colour to represent the French brand since Dominican model Arlenis Sosa in 2008.

      I think Arleni is still with lancome, she was in their winter fall 2013/2014 ads. plus Lancome uses both models and actresses in their ads, actresses usually get the big perfumes commercials whereas models gets other products.

    Had hoped it would have been L’Oréal so we could have seen her at Cannes but oh well 🙂

      I know, but with Zoe and Lupita at Cannes, I don’t think I would be able to cope with so much fabulousness 😉

    I think everybody saw this coming. Lupita is like advertising gold right now, she’s the current it-girl.
