Before she took home the golden statue, we knew she was destined to be a golden girl for a top beauty brand. And lo and behold, we were right. French beauty giant Lancôme was the winner in scooping up the gorgeous Kenyan actress as the face of its brand.

Joining the ranks of Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet and Penélope Cruz, the Yale graduate is definitely in some A-list company and Lancôme wouldn't have it any other way. In a statement released this week, the brand stated, 'She is an outstanding example of a natural beauty; confident and simply true to herself, she embraces life with freshness, citing happiness as the most attractive form of radiance.'

'Both talented and committed, true to her African beauty, and showing a great curiosity and open-mindedness in her career choices, Lupita is by essence the Lancôme woman,' continued Françoise Lehmann, General Manager of Lancôme International.

Expect to start seeing Lupita in campaigns shot by esteemed photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott this summer.
