It’s always exciting when L’Oreal reveal the new face of their campaigns. Remember the hysteria when we heard that Chezza was to be the new face, for example? Well, this morning brings another burst of excitement amongst Grazia Team Beauty as the latest face for the brand has been announced as none other than Ethiopian model du jour Liya Kebede. Yup, you may recognise the 33-year-old mother of two who has appeared on zillions of magazine covers and who you might have spotted in The Good Shepherd alongside Matt Damon and Angelina Jolie back in 2006 (seriously multi-talented model, this one).
Speaking of the new role for herself, Liya told Us Magazine, 'It’s important for me that I represent a brand that reflects my personality. I’m pleased to play a part in sharing the uniqueness, the charisma, and the incredible stories of women of all origins and from all regions of the world.' And we certainly look forward to seeing this lady in action in those glossy L’Oreal campaigns. We reckon she will be swishing hair and pouting lips like no one’s ever done before. You go girl!
