Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o announced yesterday Thursday April 3rd that she’s the new face of cosmetics giant, Lancôme. The actress is the beauty company’s first black ambassador. She joins other A-list ambassadors like Kate Winslet and Julia Roberts.
In a statement to the media, Lupita said she was proud to represent Lancôme and that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman’s freedom to be herself.
Lancôme ad campaigns featuring Lupita will begin airing in September.
