As we seek a more authentic representation of our world represented in magazines and on the runway, especially with regards to the models’ ethnicity, size and shape, it’s beautiful to see the May “Beauty” issue of Harper’s Bazaar highlighting a diverse array in one editorial. Not to mention the focus of the shoot was not explicitly to highlight diversity, but beauty. Bravo! to Carine Roitfeld who styled the models with widely distinct looks for her debut spread in the magazine. From boldly hued lips and eyes to voluminous and sleek hairstyles, take a peek at this gorgeous editorial shot by Johnny Dufort. Click the images for shopping details.

“What appealed to me about Lancôme is that they’re not dictating what beauty is,” Lupita told WWD.

This morning Lupita Nyong’o was officially announced the new face Lancôme!! We are super excited to see her ads this September. This is #MAJOR news, while Lupita is the fourth Academy Award winning actress — after Kate Winslet, Julia Roberts and Penelope Cruz — to sign on with the French cosmetic and skincare company, she is Lancôme’s first-ever black ambassador!! Françoise Lehmann, General Manager of Lancôme International, said the company selected Lupita because she is “talented and committed, true to her African beauty, and showing a great curiosity and open-mindedness in her career choices.” We are huge fans of the beautiful, graceful, confident and style savvy 31 year old so, we couldn’t be happier for her pioneering success! Go Lupita!!
