Everybody loves Lupita Nyong’o, the 12 Years a Slave star who won the 2014 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Case in point, Lancôme just announced that Lupita is the French beauty giant’s newest brand ambassadress. That makes four Academy Award winning ambassadresses for Lancôme, including Penelope Cruz, Julia Robert, and Kate Winslet.
“I am truly honored to join maison Lancôme, a brand with a prestigious history that I have always loved,” stated 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 Mexican-born, Kenyan actress is much, much more than just a pretty face and multi-award winning actress. A recent graduate from the Yale School of Drama, she has an eclectic artistic repertoire, including directing the feature-length, much acclaimed documentary, In My Genes, about the reality of living with albinism in Kenya.
“Both talented and committed, true to her African beauty, and showing a great curiosity and open-mindedness in her career choices, Lupita is by essence the Lancôme woman,” stated Francoise Lehmann, general manager, Lancôme International.
Beginning this summer, you will see Lupita in the Lancôme advertisement campaign. Until then, catch her in the action thriller, Non-Stop, with Liam Neeson and julianne Morre.
