Guess who joined the ladies of L'OREAL as brand ambassador? LIYA KEBEDE. She was the first African American spokeswoman at ESTEE LAUDER -- a mega breakthrough. Heading up the LIYA KEBEDE Foundation in Ethiopia, goodwill ambassador for the World Health Organization for maternal, neonatal and infant health care, international model, mom, entrepreneur and actress (did you catch her in The Good Shepherd) she has a full plate. But will she find time to do it all? Global Brand President of L'OREAL PARIS, Cyril Chapuy, says "Her generous commitment to the cause of women's well-being is remarkable." Brains, beauty and a big heart.
No doubt, she'll fit in with Gwen Stefani, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Freida Pinto and the rest of them. She's definitely got it all! Congrats LIYA!
(Wondering what her first cosmetic ad campaign will be?)
