Congratulations are in order! Actress and performer Lupita Nyong'o, known for her role in "12 Years a Slave", has just signed on to be the new face of Lancome.
This year has been huge for Lupita! 12 Years a Slave did very well at the Box Office; Lupita's role in the movie helped her win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. Her style and grace immediately became popular with the Hollywood crowd and she has landed several major projects as a result.
Of the Lancome contract Lupita 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."
Her campaign with Lancome will premiere in September 2014.
Congratulations Lupita! You are inspiring brown girls everywhere!
