Dunn Was Born With It! Maybelline Announces Jourdan Dunn As New Brand Ambassador
A few weeks ago, we were excited to announce that Lupita Nyong’o becoming the brand ambassadress for Lancome cosmetics. Today, we are pleased to share that the exquisite Jourdan Dunn will be the new face of Maybelline. The British single mother turned supermodel is known for her editorial spreads, pronounced runway walk and cooking show on Jay Z’s site Life +Times. Dunn was also featured in Beyonce’s “Yonce” video.
“Jourdan’s look, style and positive energy are perfect for the Maybelline New York brand. She truly reflects Maybelline’s vision of global beauty,” Maybelline’s brand president Jerome Bruhat says.
In a statement released to Vogue UK, Jourdan Dunn said of her accomplishment, “It is an honor to be a spokesperson for such an iconic brand. I am proud to say that I am a Maybelline girl and hopefully I can make people feel the same way I did when I saw the advertisements growing up. The brand imagery is always beautiful and positive. To now be a part of that is a dream come true!”
Dunn’s first job assignment for the legendary brand will be its Go Extreme mascara, that arrived in department stores this month. Dunn also has contracts with Yves Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein, Burberry Beauty and DKNY, to briefly describe her resume.
She’s killing the game one fashion and cosmetic house at a time. Black beauty is well on its way to change the fashion industry’s uniform look and that’s both a blessing and what the marketplace is calling for.
