LANCÃ”ME LOVES LUPITA
Everybody loves Lupita Nyongâ€™o, the 12 Years a Slave star who won the 2014 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Case in point, LancÃ´me just announced that Lupita is the French beauty giantâ€™s newest brand ambassadress. That makes four Academy Award winning ambassadresses for LancÃ´me, including Penelope Cruz, Julia Robert, and Kate Winslet.
â€œI am truly honored to join maison LancÃ´me, a brand with a prestigious history that I have always loved,â€ stated Nyongâ€™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 womanâ€™s freedom to be herself.â€
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.
â€œBoth 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 LancÃ´me woman,â€ stated Francoise Lehmann, general manager, LancÃ´me International.
Beginning this summer, you will see Lupita in the LancÃ´me advertisement campaign. Until then, catch her in the action thriller, Non-Stop, with Liam Neeson and julianne Morre.
