Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o makes history by becoming Lancôme’s first black ambassadress
Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o is the new face of Lancôme cosmetics.
This is a pretty big deal seeing as though she is the first black woman to ever be appointed as the brand’s ambassadress.
The French cosmetic and skincare company announced the exciting news Friday morning that the 31-year-old will be its new brand ambassador and star in ads launching this September. It was only a matter of time before a major beauty brand snapped up the stunning Academy Award winning-actress — her makeup moments are just as stunning asher red carpet style. She is already one of the stars of Miu Miu’s spring/summer 2014 campaign and we’re sure there are more fabulous partnerships to come.
Lupita is the fourth Academy Award winning actress to land a deal with the French company. Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet and Penelope Cruz have all preceding Nyong’o as the ambassadors for the brand.
This is only the beginning.
