Girl of the moment Lupita Nyong’o may have wowed us with her sartorial choices during Awards season (and snagged the Best Supporting Actress Oscar along the way) but now she’s got a brand new role. The stunning actress has been announced as the face of Lancôme. Shot by acclaimed photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the campaign will hit US in August and the rest of the world in September.
“I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history and that I have always loved. 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 hersel,”, confided Lupita, who is joining Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet, Penélope Cruz and Lily Collins.
