Lupita Nyong’o is the new face of Lancôme

lupita-lancomeAfter an incredible award season that culminated with an Oscar win for her role in “12 Years a Slave,” Lupita Nyong’o has landed her first-ever beauty campaign–as the newest face of Lancôme. Here’s what she had to say about the upcoming partnership in a statement to the press:

“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 herself.”

The 31-year-old will star in her own beauty campaign, shot by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Nyong’o has been embraced by the fashion community for her standout red carpet style–which led to a 2014 Miu Miu spring campaign–and it looks like she is well on her way to becoming a beauty icon as well.

Me + LANCÔME. #TGIF The secret's out. And it feels GREAT. @LancomeUSA #Lancome
