Liya Kebede Is L'Oreal's Newest Spokeswoman 2011-06-21 10:20:13

Liya Kebede Named L'Oréal's Newest Ambassador

Model, actress, and philanthropist Liya Kebede has just been announced as L'Oréal's latest global brand ambassador, joining stars like Freida Pinto, Gwen Stefani, and Jennifer Lopez among the beauty brand's spokeswomen. Liya has served as a goodwill ambassador for the World Health Organization and has also founded the Liya Kebede Foundation, a group that works to reduce maternal and child mortality rates in her home country of Ethiopia. Back in 2003, Liya was the first black model to sign on with Estée Lauder cosmetics. She'll undoubtedly make an excellent addition to the L'Oréal family.

She is stunning, but my first reaction when I saw her was "Why is Katie Holmes wearing so much dark foundation?" She has the same hair and bone structure - they're both gorgeous. @GummiBears - I know what you mean. It's nice to know that these beautiful women are "real" and have a flaw or two, that they are not all airbrushed perfection.

You know it makes me feel a bit better about myself that even Liya suffers from acne, although it is nowhere near the level I used to have (it is getting better but I had to eliminate a lot of things from my diet). Don't get me wrong, she has absolutely beautiful bone structure and facial features, but in a way acne kind of makes her more "real" if that makes sense. But anyway, congrats to Liya for landing that contract.
