Gorgeous singer-songwriter Janelle Monáe has been named as the latest face of CoverGirl Comestics. She joins P!nk, who was announced as a spokeswoman for the brand two weeks ago, as well as Rihanna, Brandy and Queen Latifah. Janelle‘s debut 10 page ad campaign will appear in the September 2012 issue of Vogue Magazine.
Take a look at what Janelle had to say below:
“Growing up and trying to find myself as a woman and experimenting with makeup, I’d go buy magazines, I’d see Tyra Banks [in the CoverGirl ads] and I’d think, Wow, she’s beautiful. It never looked like she had on too much makeup. There was just something clean and classic about her face.”
“I believe in the idea of every woman finding their own beauty superpowers, I want to help redefine what it means to be a strong woman in the music and fashion worlds.”
I’m very excited for this and knew when I first saw Janelle that she would make a great spokeswoman for a makeup brand or clothing line. Watch her introduction video below!
