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!

Julia Roberts Talks Her New Movie, Family For Vanity Fair

Julia Roberts has decided to make us pay attention to her again because she has a new movie coming out. What did we do to deserve this? She’s starring in one of two movies based on the Snow White fairytale coming out this year. Hers, Mirror Mirror, looks kind of bad. Not even Armie Hammer‘s teeth can make me want to see it.

So here she is on the cover of White People Monthly, I mean um, Vanity Fair, with an interview done with Mike Nichols where she talks about how her children don’t care about who she is either, and how much Hollywood has changed since her and her mouth hit the big screen. While out with her son Finn, 7, she was recognized but he didn’t quite seem to get it.

“[Once] on a crowded street, and somebody noticed me, and then another person noticed. Somebody said as we were walking past, ‘Oh, that’s Julia Roberts.’ We all just kind of kept going, and then Finn said, ‘Yeah, my mum’s Julia Robinson.’ That’s what gives you perspective. It could be Robinson, it could be Johnson, because it has nothing to do with me as a person.”

Or maybe your child doesn’t know his own last name, Julia.  She also thinks that young actresses have it harder than she did when she was starting out. “The business is so different; you can never be that new girl that has that moment of ‘Where’d she come from?'”

See Julia, there’s this thing, called the internet. I’d tell you that you can read the rest of this mess of an interview when the issue hits newsstands March 6, but you aren’t even going to flip through this, are you?

That Sorkin article might be good though.
