There is no doubt that the fashion industry has been very very instrumental in helping 12 Years a Slave Actress and Oscar Winner Lupita Nyong’o lay the foundation for a very successful career in the creative arts. Her cross over appeal has also spilled from fashion and film to music (Yes. Jay-Z recently gave her a shout out on his latest track).
Now, Lupita has been named the new face of Lancôme, the fragrance and cosmetic brand owned by L’Oreal. Check out the exciting news!
“Lancôme is thrilled to announce that Academy Award® winner Lupita Nyong’o has been chosen as new ambassadress. Lupita is an outstanding example of a natural beauty; confident and simply true to herself. She has this special kind of aura both enlightening and deep making her by essence the Lancôme woman, to whom happiness is the most attractive form of beauty.
