Academy- Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o has been chosen as new ambassadress for Lancôme. Lupita is much adored for her amazing talent, style and beauty and it is no surprise that she was snapped by such huge beauty brand as their new face. The gorgeous Kenyan-Mexican actress woke up famous after her Oscar-winning performance in “12 Years a Slave”.
She is said to appear in new campaign in September this year, in shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Lupita also appeared in videos and interviews speaking up about beauty and darker skin. We sure remember her emotional speech on a letter from her fan.
According to the General Manager of Lancôme International, Françoise Lehmann, Lupita was chosen because she is "by the essence the Lancôme woman", due to the fact she is "talented and committed, true to her African beauty, and showing a great curiosity and open-mindedness in her career choices".

"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". Lupita added she was "truly honoured to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history and that I have always loved".
