Katrina Kaif has bagged one massive endorsement deal. The Dhoom:3 actress is set to become the face of French cosmetics giant, L’Oréal. Kaif joins the ranks of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Freida Pinto and Sonam Kapoor who are the Indian faces for the brand. Globally, the brand has an impressive list of spokeswomen. Blake Lively, Eva Longoria, Beyonce, Lea Michele, Cheryl Cole and Jane Fonda are the international faces for them.
According to DNA, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan wasn’t thrilled on hearing the news that a younger actress will be joining the ranks but Sonam Kapoor apparently reached out to Katrina and welcomed her to the “family”. In fact, Sonam was the one who suggested Kaif’s name to the brand. Apparently, she has been fond of Katrina despite not working together on any projects. She finds her dignified and admires how she conducts herself professionally and personally.
While no formal statement has been announced by the brand, Katrina is reportedly going to endorse a new range of shampoos and make-up range. Well, given her peaches and cream complexion and healthy locks, we’re going to be easily sold on what she’s selling.
Katrina is riding on a high, she’s just scored a Vogue cover and Dhoom:3 is set to be a sure fire hit.
We’re pretty sure Katrina will be heading to Cannes next year as L’Oréal is the official sponsor for the Cannes Film Festival. Can you imagine her wardrobe? I can’t imagine that just yet but I’m sure it’s going to be so lustworthy.
Diana Hayden, former Miss World, was the first ever Indian ambassador for the cosmetics giant.
Sonam and Ash reportedly had a bust-up over Sonam calling the light-eyed beauty “Aunty”. In turn, Ash refused to let Sonam walk the red carpet at Cannes. The two have called it truce since then, owing to Abhishek Bachchan.
