If you thought Lupita Nyong'o's rise to fame would come to a screeching halt after her Academy Award win, you'd be dead wrong! This morning Lancôme announced the incredibly gorgeous actress as the new face of their beauty brand. It's a move we are more than happy to co-sign! Here's why we're so excited for Lupita's new gig:

In case you're unaware, we're completely and totally in love with Lupita Nyong'o! Ever since she splashed onto the scene, we haven't been able to take our eyes off of her. Apparently we're not alone.

Major beauty brand Lancôme has just appointed the star as their newest ambassador. Yup! She'll be in good company with Penélope Cruz, Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, and Kate Winslet; all famous faces who are also working with the brand.

“I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history and that I have always loved," said Lupita in a statement."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.”

She also shared the video below following the announcement.


Isn't she just the best? Here's why we're so excited for her new gig.
