Earlier this year, Lupita Nyong’o was announced as the new face of Lancôme cosmetics – a refreshing choice, and one that a lot of people were really pleased with – especially considering she is the world’s Most Beautiful Person!
Now, the first image has been revealed – Lupita leaked it herself on her Instagram page – and it’s really beautiful. Simple, elegant, classy… all the things she has always portrayed herself to be, anyway.
Here’s what she told Vogue about the partnership:
“It’s not about conforming to an already established idea of what is beautiful, and I like that,” echoing what she said in her initial statement, “I am particularly proud to represent [Lancôme's] 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.”
