Lupita Nyong'O Face of Lancome
Alexi Lubomirski for Lancôme

We’ve all fallen head over heels for Lupita Nyong’o since her star turn in Twelve Years a Slave, which earned her an Academy Award. Nyong’o was flawless on every turn at the red carpet, which is why her newest accolade comes as no surprise: she is Lancome’s newest “brand ambassadress.” Nyong’o says, “I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history 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 actress joins Lancome’s already star-studded lineup of Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet, Penélope Cruz, and the recently appointed young actress Lily Collins. Nyong’o’s first campaigns will be seen this summer shot by star photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Congratulations Lupita!
