Winning: Lupita Nyong’o Lands Lucrative Lancôme Deal

Published: Friday 4th Apr 2014 by Sam

There are many ways to “win” and actress Lupita Nyong’o seems destined to tick them all.

For, the rising star follows her clean sweep during award season (see: Oscars, Golden Globes, SAG Awards) with the announcement today that she has signed an endorsement deal with cosmetics giant Lancôme.

Full story below…

Nyong’o joins Julia Roberts, Penélope Cruz, Kate Winslet and Lily Collins as celebrity ambassadors for the brand.

Speaking on the partnership, the Kenyan bred stunner said in a statement:

“What appealed to me about Lancôme is that they’re not dictating what beauty is. 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.” {Source}

Well, werk! Kudos to Lupita for yet another power move. Here’s hoping she’s able to maintain and build on her undeniable buzz.

    she definitly replaces Gabriel Union and Kelly Rowland for the “it Dark-skin chocolate girl” . Lupita is f’n gorgeous

      Gabby and Kelly aren’t dark skin. Gabby is like a high brown and Kelly is kinda mocha. When I think of dark skin, I think of Idris or tyrese

        In Hollywood and most black communities there are two kinds of black either u are classified as light skinned or dark skinned boo boo, so let’s not get too extra with it. Yellow bone and red bone is already pushing it but I never heard of mocha and high brown

        F*** Hollywood. Dark skin is Tyrese, Lupita,and Idris. Gabrielle and Kelly are brown since you wanna be technical.

      Why am I not surprised that the first comment would be about “color.” Lupita doesn’t “replace” anyone as an “it Dark-skin chocolate girl.” What a shallow and borderline offensive thing to say. She’s simply f’n gorgeous, and with her success comes acknowledgment of that fact. Period.

    she has talent

  7. JOHNVIDAL April 4, 2014

    She is very beautiful so this is a win.
    But the important thing is that her career looks promising and she deserves it cos she is talented. She´s likely to be in the next Star Wars film.

    Lupita is a breathtakingly gorgeous woman. It’s refreshing to see the standard of beauty recognizing all shades. She is a role model as an intelligent black woman.
