Well we totally saw this one coming! After the Internet clamored to get their hands on Lupita Nyong’o’s lip balm after she whipped it out at the Oscars, we knew a beauty deal was just a matter of time. Today Lancôme Paris announced that the stunning Mexican-born-Kenyan as their newest brand ambassador and we think it’s the perfect match. Nyong’o fits right in with the beauty brand’s elegant, feminine, and aspirational feel.
“I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history 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,” says Lupita Nyong’o. We can’t wait to see her gorgeous face in future Lancome ads.
