Lancôme

Lupita Nyong’o is on a roll! It was announced moments ago that the 12 Years a Slave star is now the new brand ambassador Lancôme.

The announcement was made April 4 and joins current brand spokeswomen Kate WinsletJulia Roberts, and Penelope Cruz.

“I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancôme, 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,” Nyong’o said in a statement released by Lancôme.

Lupita also sat down with WWD to discuss her new gig:

 

“What appealed to me about Lancôme is that they’re not dictating what beauty is,” she said. “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.”

Should Lupita Nyong’o Play Storm??

The question of the day should Lupita Nyong’o play Storm in future X-Men movies?

Well the blogger at BlackGirlNerds.com think so! In fact they believe so strongly that Lupita should take on the role of Storm she has started a petition at Change.org.

“This is important because listening to the demands of your consumer base means more than your own personal casting choices. She has the accent, the look, and the acting chops to play Storm as the comic book intended.  Please kindly take this into consideration and respect the demand of Marvel consumers and fans of this amazing franchise.  This petition was started based on the overwhelming responses to my tweet “I volunteer as tribute to lead a social media charge to get Lupita cast as Storm!”‘

Do you agree with BlackGirlNerds?

Lupita Nyong'o & K'naan

Looks like Jared Leto is out of the picture for the Lupita!

Lupita Nyong’o  was spotted leaving Live! with Kelly and Michael on March 3 with a new man! Keinan Abdi Warsame, better known by his stage-name K’naan, was cuddled up with the Academy Award winning actress.

Lupita seemed very comfortable with K’naan. In fact, she even let him hold the heavy award something she said she would never do!

Lupita Nyong'o & K'naan

K’naan is successfully singer/rapper who had the hit song Wavin’ Flag chosen as the official anthem for the 2010 FIFA World Cup

Radar Online spoke with K’naan in an interview  and said that he had a rough time growing up in Canada after he moved to Somalia in the 90’s. “I learned to fire guns at the age of nine or so, but luckily [I] was not out killing people. We zigzagged the streets to escape those trying to kill us.”

Looks like Lupita and K’naan are going to make a happy couple! I wonder how long they have been together? I’m waiting for Lupita to spill the tea! Nothing better than getting the tea straight from the horse’s mouth!
