Supermodel Chanel Iman, model/activist Winnie Harlow and modern day renaissance woman Vashtie Kola are bringing a triple dose of Black Girl Magic to Swarovski.

The three gorgeous ladies are front and center, alongside a handful of other prominent pop culture influencers, in Swarovski's latest ad for its new #BeBrilliant campaign.

Vashtie took to Instagram to announce the news on Tuesday afternoon. "Beyond stoked to be one of the new faces of @Swarovski and aligned with all these amazing peeps! #BeBrilliant," she posted. She later shared a second post featuring a video clip of the ad in full.


ESSENCE caught up with Vashtie this week at the NYC screening of Nas & Steven Caple's new film The Land, and she told us all about the new Swarovski partnership, the influence of women in hip-hop on her career, and much more. Check out the video below.
