Kenya: Lupita Nyong’o Lands Tiffany’s Endorsement

Lupita Nyong’o continues to break new ground in Hollywood.

The Kenyan actress has landed a major modelling role after she was announced as the face of Tiffany & Co. The Oscar winner also made history at the same time as this is the first time the company has ever used celebrities for a campaign.

According to Essence, former Vogue creative director Grace Coddington tapped Nyong’o, actress Elle Fanning and models Natalie Westling, and Christy Turlington for the jeweller’s fall campaign.

Lupita starred in Miu Miu’s 2014 campaign and was the first black woman to ever land a LancAme campaign.
