The Star Wars universe just keeps growing (not that anyone's complaining). The latest star to travel to a galaxy far, far away is Janelle Monae, the face of CoverGirl's Star Wars makeup collection. The singer, fashion icon, and all-around inspiration was unveiled as the face of the limited edition cosmetics line based on the highly anticipated blockbuster Star Wars Episode VIII — The Force Awakens.
"So happy to be a part of my two favorite things!" Monae said. "Resistance pilot was [an] inspiration. She is in the new Star Wars — The Force Awakens! And there will be more strong female lead characters in the film." The stunning, self-confessed android is the perfect choice to embody the Resistance Pilot character in the stylish and futuristic ad campaign that asks buyers to choose "Which side are you on?" CoverGirl's Star Wars Limited Edition Collection includes mascara, lipstick, and nail polish in different shades based on the light side ("Droid") or the dark side ("Stormtrooper"). The packaging also pays tribute to the franchise with iconic quotes like "May the Force Be with You" written on the packaging.
"This Sci-Fi girl is geeked," Monae said. Here's your first look at Janelle Monae's CoverGirl x Star Wars Beauty Force campaign:
Monae's beauty truly is out of this world, while her unique, fashion-forward style is beyond fierce. Here's a recent sampling of the singer's galactic fabulosity:
She is the caped crusader.
All bow down to the out-of-this-world queen.
Eat your heart out, Princess Leia.
