Que linda! Lupita Nyong'o has been named the newest brand ambassadress for Maison Lancome, joining Penelope Cruz, Lily Collins, Kate Winslet, Daria Webowy, and Julia Roberts. The 31-year-old Mexican-born, Kenyan actress (or as Lupita says: "a Mexi-Kenyan") is excited for her new role:
"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," she said.
Xavier Vey, President of Lancôme USA added, “Lupita’s authentic inner and outer beauty, her exquisite grace, and true confidence represent today’s modern woman. Having Lupita as a Lancôme ambassadress will help support our mission in the U.S. market which is to speak to all women. Her rising star status is like a blooming rose; she is elegant and has an undeniable brilliance.”
Congrats to Lupita!
