From the big screen to global representation, the gorgeous and fresh faced, Lupita Nyong’o is kicking off a new venture.

The Academy Award winner and rising star announced via Instagram on Friday morning that she is officially the new ambassador for Lancome.

“Hi, I’m Lupita Nyong’o and I am incredibly excited to let you know that I am the new ambassador for Lancome. See you soon,” she said the sweet video message.

Nyong’o, whose rise to fame skyrocketed after her outstanding performance in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave, has had an incredible year. After winning several awards (Including an Academy Award) for her role as Patsey in the drama, is also making history, officially becoming the first black ambassador for the French cosmetics house.

“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.

Nyong’o’s name is now added to an incredible list of Lancome’s ambassadors; Julia Roberts, Penelope Cruz, Kate Winslet to name a few.

Tamar Braxton Fires Stylist Over $40 Outfit

Ya’ll already know Tamar Braxton is not the one to try. But her stylist must not have gotten the memo. Apparently he thought it was ok to belittle her for wearing a jumper from Forever 21 during a recent interview and she had to hand him his walking papers.

Braxton let her fans know what went down via her Instagram account and also encouraged women to be confident in whatever they wear.

“The stylist today tried to make me feel “less than” because he didn’t agree that I should wear @forever21..well.. I FIRED him because NO ONE should make you feel “less than” because you have on a $40 outfit!!,” she wrote.

“You are AMAZING and don’t let ANYONE bully you into spending what you have.. or NOT..,” she added. “It doesn’t make you ANY LESS FABULOUS!! You make the clothes!! Your SPIRIT makes you!! EMBRACE YOU!! YOU ARE PERFECT!! NO MATTER WHAT!!

Braxton rocked the City of Angels Camo jumpsuit and a pair of suede Christian Louboutin booties while appearing on Essence Live to promote her new (and final) studio album “Blue Bird Of Happiness”.

Honestly we liked the look and that she mixed high and low end labels so effortlessly. But thats just our two cents.
