After starring in Miu Miu’s Spring 2014 campaign, it was only a matter of time before Lupita Nyong’o was scooped up by a beauty brand. The Oscar winner isn’t just undeniably gorgeous; she also pulls off every makeup look she tries on. And trust us, we’ve chronicled many of her standout maquillage moments—from purple lips, to gilded lids, to Cleopatra-meets-Audrey Hepburn eyeliner. In other words, French giant Lancôme nabbed more than just a one trick pony—Nyong’o has enough moves to fill an entire stable. Of her new appointment, the ambassadress said, “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.” We love an actor with range both on screen and off.
happy for her! she needs to land a role next
