The actress is among the first celebrities to star as the face of the luxury brand.
Lupita Nyong’o is the new face of Tiffany & Co.
The stunner is adding another breakthrough modeling role to her resume as it’s the first time Tiffany & Co. has ever used celebrities for a campaign.
Former Vogue creative director Grace Coddington tapped Nyong’o, actress Elle Fanning and models Natalie Westling, and Christy Turlington for the jeweler’s fall campaign.
This isn’t the first time Nyong’o has lent her beauty to a major fashion brand. The actress starred in Miu Miu’s fall 2014 ad and was the first Black woman to ever land a Lancome campaign.
It may have taken Tiffany & Co 79 years to feature celebrities in their ads but we think this was a great move.
