Lupita Nyong'o Is The New Face Of Lancome, Proving Yet Again She Is THE Woman

Lupita Lands MAJOR Beauty Deal

Lupita Nyong'o is the new face of Lanc么me! #MAJOR

The French cosmetic and skincare company announced the exciting news Friday morning that the 31-year-old will be its new brand ambassador and star in ads launching this September.

It was only a matter of time before a major beauty brand snapped up the stunning Academy Award winning-actress -- her makeup moments are just as stunning as her red carpet style. She is already one of the stars of Miu Miu's spring/summer 2014 campaign and we're sure there are more fabulous partnerships to come.

鈥淲hat appealed to me about Lanc么me is that they鈥檙e not dictating what beauty is,鈥 Lupita told WWD. She went on to express her goals for the partnership, saying "hopefully it鈥檚 a symbiotic relationship 鈥 that I benefit from being associated with them, and they benefit from being associated with me, as well. And for the consumer at large, I think Lanc么me has a range of products for every woman, and I think having me will expand people鈥檚 understanding of, hopefully, what Lanc么me stands for, who Lanc么me is for."

While Lupita is the fourth Academy Award winning actress -- among Kate Winslet, Julia Roberts and Penelope Cruz -- to ink a deal with the French cosmetics and skincare company, the Kenyan beauty is Lanc么me's first-ever black ambassador.

Fran莽oise Lehmann, General Manager of Lanc么me International, said the company's decision to tap Lupita was because she is "talented and committed, true to her African beauty, and showing a great curiosity and open-mindedness in her career choices."
