Lupita-Nyongo-The Source

Actress Lupita Nyong’o makes history once again as she becomes the new face and the first African American spokeswoman for the brand.

The 12 Years A Slave star is coming off her success of winning her first Academy Award for her role in the movie.  So far, this actress has made a name for herself and is determined to make history.

Here is what she said about the new deal:

I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancome, a brand with such a prestigious history that I have always loved. 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.

Congratulations to Lupita!
