By Romance Meets Life on June 24, 2014
When Lupita Nyong'o got tipped as the face of Lancome fresh off her Oscar win, there was some controversy with Dencia making a reference to the lightening creams Lancome is known for. Now, the debut print ad for Lupita has been unveiled and she is fronting the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24 Foundation.The ad is all black and gold, from Lupita's dress to her cuff, keeping the makeup minimal to show off her luscious dark skin [See Lupita in a Bikini].Covering the last issue of Vogue, Lupita Nyong’o said of her partnership with Lancome, “It’s not about conforming to an already established idea of what is beautiful, and I like that. I am particularly proud to represent [Lancôme's] 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.” . . .
