USA TODAY’s Donna Freydkin reported today of Ms. Lupita’s newest gig read more about it below!!!
Ms. Lupita is having a stellar year and it keeps on getting better.
Best supporting actress winner Lupita Nyong’o, joins the ranks of Kate Winslet and Julia Roberts as one of Lancome’s ambassadors. Ads will start appearing in September.
“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,” Nyong’o said in a statement released by the French beauty house.
Nyong’o also popped up in Miu Miu’s spring 2014 campaign, and sat front-row at the brand’s recent show.
Throughout awards season, Nyong’o dazzled fashion watchers with her impeccable and often-daring fashion sense, which ranged from Chanel to Gucci to that red Ralph Lauren cape dress. She was both deeply elegant and elegantly fierce.
“I had to give a speech about beauty right before the Oscars,” she said in WWD, “and for me, beauty is a compassion for yourself and those around you. And I think that in focusing on that, the light inside illuminates the beauty outside. The idea that Lancôme now has a few actor ambassadors is significant because actors are not just faces, they are spirits that people enjoy and relate to more than in an aesthetic way. We have the privilege of standing for something other than just looks.”
