First Look At Lupita N’yongo As New Face of Lancome Is Sheer Perfection

You know what I love about Lupita’s ad for Lancôme the most? It LOOKS like her. She’s a natural beauty and the French beauty company finally saw fit to leave the Photoshop at the door this time. Take a good look. Lupita’s pores are actually visible and she is every bit as lovely and radiant as she is on the red carpet or even in paparazzi shots at LAX.

Seriously? Who looks THIS flawless at the airport?


The first African woman to front the French brand, Lupita and Lancôme are both hyped about the partnership.

“I am truly honoured to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history and that I have always loved,” said the actress.

“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.”

Lancôme boss Françoise Lehmann added, “Both talented and committed, true to her African beauty, and showing a great curiosity and open-mindedness in her career choices, Lupita is by essence the Lancôme woman.

“A strikingly beautiful and intelligent woman.”

As opposed to The Original Horseface Julia Roberts whose ad was banned in the U.K. for being “overly airbrushed”.  Un.Recog.Nizable.


Brava, Lupita. Brava!
