The is truly the year of Lupita. Ms. Nyong’o was just announced as the newest face of beauty line, Lancôme. She is among other fellow actresses: Penelope Cruz, Kate Winslet, & Julia Roberts. Lupita continues to push the standards of “mainstream beauty” out of the way by being the brands first Black face. Congratulations, yet again Lupita.
"I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history and that I have always loved," Nyong’o said in a statement. "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."
