The first picture of Lupita Nyong’o for Lancôme has finally been revealed. The Oscar winning actress and People Magazine’s “Most Beautiful” inked a deal with the cosmetic giant in April making history as their first-ever black ambassador. It’s not hard to see why. In her first ad for the Paris brand, Lupita’s skin is flawless and radiant.
Lupita had this to say about becoming a celebrity ambassador for the company:
“I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history and that I have always loved. 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.”
With an impeccable fashion sense, the stunning Kenyan has become a fashion icon over the past year and been on countless best dressed lists. She also landed the cover of Vogue for its July issue.
The general manager of Lancôme International said Nyong’o was chosen because she is “talented and committed, true to her African beauty, and showing a great curiosity and open-mindedness in her career choices.”
Congratulations Lupita! We look forward to seeing more beautiful pictures.
