The news came out last Friday that Lupita Nyong’o will become a brand ambassador for Lancôme. Following suit behind stars such as Kate Winslet, Penelope Cruz and Julia Roberts — it was only a matter of time before the French cosmetics and skincare company signed on the 31-year-old stunner. Lupita is Lancôme’s first ever black ambassador set to debut in September. In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Lupita says, “What appealed to me about Lancôme is that they’re not dictating what beauty is…What they do supports something that already is — and that was appealing to me too. It’s what drew me to them…I think having me will expand people’s understanding of, hopefully what Lancôme stands for, who Lancôme is for.” This definitely won’t be Lupita’s last campaign ad. As the face of Vogues July cover (see Lupita Nyong’o, Stunning and Elegant on Vogue’s July Cover) this Kenya native is on a roll and we can only expect it to get even better.
