The beautiful actress Elle Fanning is going to be the new ambassador of the famous cosmetic brand L’Oréal Paris. Only a couple days ago, L’Oréal hinted that they were going to announce their new spokesperson. Just today both the 19-year-old actress and the cosmetic company shared the wonderful news on social media.
Elle’s debut for the cosmetic giant is expected to happen during this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Everyone is eagerly awaiting her appearance on the red carpet. It seems like L’Oréal chose the perfect timing to present their newest representative. She is one of the youngest lorealistas in a row of many other famous actresses, models and singers. The French brand has been an official partner of the Cannes Film Festival for the last 20 years.
Elle didn’t hide her excitement to be working as one of the many ambassadors for L’Oréal:
“I can FINALLY let you all in on the mega SURPRISE!!!! I am officially a #lorealista !!!!!Thank you @lorealmakeup for welcoming me into your EMPOWERING and FABULOUS family!!! I am beyond proud to represent a company that celebrates WOMEN!!! BECAUSE WE ARE ALL #WORTHIT #lorealparis.”- she announced on her Instagram profile. This is going to be her first collaboration in the beauty and makeup industry.
Her first campaign for L’Oréal will be the commercial for the Paradise mascara. She already shared a picture from the shooting of the ad in a castle in Paris, one day before the announcement on her Instagram profile. “I got to say ‘Because you’re worth it.’ I was like, ‘That is so cool,'” she told WWD during her interview.
Elle is joining the L’Oréal family alongside a lot of other powerful women that have truly been an inspiration for everyone. Blake Lively, Deepika Padukone, Doutzen Kroes, Jennifer Lopez, Julianne Moore, Gong Li, Eva Longoria, Andie MacDowell and Bianca Balti are all just a part of the lorealistas, and most of them will be joining Elle at the Cannes Film Festival.
“It’s an honor to welcome Elle Fanning to L’Oréal Paris just in time to celebrate our 20th anniversary as beauty partner at the Festival de Cannes. Elle is a natural choice for the brand, as she highlights our love for beauty and cinema. Indeed, she is the face for the new generation as an accomplished actress, but also an inspiring canvas for make-up artists. I am sure that we will have a fruitful collaboration together,” said Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou, L’Oréal’s global president, during his announcement.
Despite the fact that she is only 19 years old, Elle doesn’t stop to amaze everyone with her hard work and her great talent. The actress is also going to be showing off two of her movies at the Cannes Film Festival. The first one is Sofia Coppola’s remake of “The Beguiled,” which is in the competition. It is based on a novel by Thomas Cullinan, a Civil War story presented from a female perspective. She stars opposite Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Colin Farrell. The other movie is John Cameron Mitchell’s “How to Talk to Girls at Parties” with Nicole Kidman in the main role once again.
Her successful acting career is marked with many other great performances in movies such as “Super 8,” “Maleficent,” “The Neon Demon,” “Dirty Sexy Money,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and more.
The young actress is considered to be a fashion icon and has collaborated with many world-renowned fashion brands for their campaigns. The exclusive brand Miu Miu chose Elle to be one of their main stars for their spring 2014 collection. The second time around, the actress posed successfully for their spring 2017 line. Dakota’s little sister became the star of Marc by Marc Jacobs at only 13 years old. Among her most recent collaborations is the one with the jewelry brand Tiffany & Co. This only speaks of how Elle is turning into one of the most accomplished young actresses in Hollywood, finding the time to juggle a very successful acting career, being a fashion icon and many fashion and beauty arrangements.
