We were already excited because TGIF and all that, but waking up to news that Lupita Nyong’o was named the new face of Lancome? This is perhaps the best Friday on the books. Both Lupita and Lancome confirmed the news, with the brand sharing the first gorgeous photo of, we’re sure, many, and the actress making the announcement in a video on Instagram. How did anyone make major announcements before technology? Carrier pigeon? Town crier? If you were busy when he cried, you just didn’t know who the new face of Lancome was? No thanks. ILY, internet.
The photo features Lupita looking stunning—what else is new—in light, natural makeup. To say she looks radiant would be the understatement of the century. Given her love for color, though, both in clothing and makeup, we’re hopeful that the campaign will include her in bright, colorful looks. There is already ample proof of how well she pulls it off.
The video, while brief, conveys Lupita’s excitement for her new role as Lancome ambassadress. What products she’ll be linked to remain to be seen, but WWD reports that the ads will be out in September. Lupita told WWD that she partnered with Lancome because she supports what they stand for, which is, namely, “something other than just looks.”
We can’t wait to see what Lancome and Lupita come up with together—get here already, September.
