First Lupita Nyong'o Lancome Ad Released, And It's Predictably Gorgeous

We've been waiting with bated breath for the first images of Lupita Nyong'o for Lancôme... and now they're here! Nyong'o looks predictably gorgeous in her first ad for the famed makeup company, in which she wears a sleeveless black dress (spiced up with a bow detail at the back) and a simple black cuff. Seriously, can she do no wrong?

The simple outfit shows off Nyong'o's stunning complexion — helped along by Lancôme's Teint Idole foundation — and natural makeup look. Her glossy lips stand out alongside very simple eyeshadow, which is a departure for Nyong'o, who often goes for very bold colors on her lids. I don't know about you, but I definitely want whatever the Academy Award winning actress is selling. What can I say? I'm a sucker for advertising when it features stunning women with enviably plump lips.

In her recent cover interview for VogueNyong'o discussed her partnership with the brand, saying that she chose Lancôme because "it’s not about conforming to an already established idea of what is beautiful, and I like that.” Lancôme has a certain fresh-faced image and is known for using a fairly diverse pool of famous faces as brand ambassadors, including Julia Robers, Kate Winslet, and Penelope Cruz. Still Nyong'o adds some true diversity to the mix and that's wonderful to see.

Lancome is ready to capitalize on our high-level Lupita obsession by sharing Nyong'o's favorite products on their website. Get your wallet ready. You'll want them all.
