We've already established that Lupita Nyong'o is breathtakingly beautiful, so it was only a matter of time before a big beauty brand tapped her for a global beauty campaign.
Iconic beauty brand Lancôme officially announced the partnership, and Lupita took to her Instagram page to share the news.
In a statement about her new position, she said:
I had to give a speech about beauty right before the Oscars, and for me, beauty is a compassion for yourself and those around you. And I think that in focusing on that, the light inside illuminates the beauty outside. The idea that Lancôme now has a few actor ambassadors is significant because actors are not just faces, they are spirits that people enjoy and relate to more than in an aesthetic way. We have the privilege of standing for something other than just looks.
