So, we were thrilled to hear that Lancôme has signed the gorgeous (and makeup-loving!) star as the newest face of the brand. Nyong'o joins some of the world's most celebrated actresses (Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet, and Penélope Cruz) in her post as spokeswoman. And, true to form, she was beautifully eloquent in her statement about the partnership.
"I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history that I have always loved," said the actress in a statement from the company. "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 herself." If this teaser image is any indication, Nyong'o's campaign with the brand is going to be a beautiful one, indeed.
