Lupita for Lancôme

Lupita Nyong'o is the new brand ambassador for Lancôme.

The Oscar winning actress has already featured in a major campaign, having starred in Miu Miu's Spring 14 advert. Now the 31-year-old has secured herself her first major beauty contract.

"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," the 12 Years a Slave star said in a statement after the announcement.

Lupita has fast become one of the most popular faces on the red carpet and has shown her versatility when it comes to different make-up looks. From purple lips to bright eyeshadows, the Non-Stop actress can pull them all off with aplomb. As well as her gorgeous features, her wardrobe choices during the awards season received top marks from the fashion elite. However, Lupita recently revealed that she hasn't always been as stylish.

"I've not always been a huge fashion fan. I've always cared about what I look like, but with 12 Years a Slave and the tour of promotion around the world, I've been able to explore and play. I've learned a lot about presentation, actually," Lupita told British magazine Grazia.

"I never knew what the formal fashion industry was up to - it was all a mystery to me. It's all new and an exciting education. I've been introduced to a whole new world where clothing is art."
