Lupita Nyong’o Is The New Face Of Lancôme
Best supporting actress winner Lupita Nyong’o joins the ranks of Kate Winslet and Julia Roberts as one of Lancome’s ambassadors.
After winning an Oscar for her performance in “12 Years a Slave,” Lupita Nyong’o has signed a contract to represent Lancôme.
The French beauty brand’s choice is hardly a surprising one, as the young woman has turned heads throughout awards season with her lovely silhouette, beautiful complexion and perfect makeup.
“I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history and that I have always loved,” said Nyong’o.
“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.”
The 31-year-old actress will pose for photographer Alexi Lubomirski in the brand’s next campaign, scheduled for release this September.
Earlier this year, the actress posed as the face of Miu Miu’s Spring-Summer 2014 collection in a campaign photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
