In  a statement released this  morning by the French beauty house, Nyong'o said...

I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancome, 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.
