Lupita Nyong'o, 12 Years A Slave Actress and Academy Award Winner, becomes the first black ambassador for French luxury brand, Lancome.
This accomplishment should be celebrated by black women all over the world for so many reasons:
1) The beauty industry is changing their views of what is considered beautiful. They are moving away from the European look and embracing other races.
2) Lupita's hair is anything but straight. It is natural. Which encourages girls all over the world that you can rock your natural hair and still be beautiful!
Lancome holds true to their vision that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman’s freedom to be herself.
We cannot wait to see all of the shiny packages and ads with Lupita's glowing skin.
