Lupita Nyong’o is the new face of Lancome!
In news that should surprise no one, the sublimely lovely
Lupita Nyong’o has been appointed a beauty ambassador for cosmetics brand Lancome.
Oscar-winning Lupita is gorgeous, and those cheekbones could sell me on green, sparkly blush if they wanted to – but the really great thing about this appointment? Lupita has been vocal in the past about a new, more inclusive definition of beauty (if you can recall without tears her
moving speech on learning to embrace her darker skin, you’re a stronger woman than I). Lupita, who’s also the face of Miu Miu has this to say about the her new Lancome gig: "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". Now just one question remains: will she or won’t she be wearing a headband in the campaign images? (Come see me later to place your bets).
