Vanity Fair is reporting that Academy award-winning actress and fashion darling Lupita Nyong’o has been named the new face of Lancôme cosmetics. Pria Rayo writes:

“Nyong’o joins fellow A-listers Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet, and Penelope Cruz as ambassadors for the brand. ‘What appealed to me about Lancôme is that they’re not dictating what beauty is,’ she told Women’s Wear Daily. ‘What they do supports something that already is — and that was appealing to me, too. It’s what drew me to them. Hopefully it’s a symbiotic relationship — that I benefit from being associated with them, and they benefit from being associated with me, as well. And for the consumer at large, I think Lancôme has a range of products for every woman, and I think having me will expand people’s understanding of, hopefully, what Lancôme stands for, who Lancôme is for.'”
