Many have noticed Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o’s beauty and poise. Lancôme certainly did, as the iconic beauty brand has just signed the actress as its newest face. She will be joining the ranks of fellow actresses like Kate Winslet, Julia Roberts and Penelope Cruz. Believe it or not, Nyong’o will also be the first black woman modeling for the company. The actress is proud to be Lancôme’s newest spokeswoman, saying, “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.” Lancôme ads featuring Nyong’o will debut this summer. The Oscar winning actress also appeared in Miu Miu‘s spring 2014 campaign.
