What defines beauty? According to skincare line Carol’s Daughter, it’s ever evolving, and to share that theory, the brand has enlisted Selita Ebanks, Solange Knowles and Cassie as the faces of its new multiracial ad campaign. What makes the trio so unique is that each of the lovely ladies hold ancestry from at least two racial groups: Ebanks is of Jamaican, Irish, Indian and African heritage; Knowles comes from African-American and French Creole descent; and Cassie is African-American and Filipino. “Carol’s Daughter doesn’t have just one direct demographic,” Ebanks told WWD. “Solange’s hair is a different texture than mine; so is Cassie’s. Our skin and body types are different. Today, people are blended, and I think the three of us are a prime example. Women in my family range from vanilla to the deepest chocolate.” The girls join a star-studded roster of former Carol’s Daughter spokeswomen, including Jada Pinkett Smith and Mary J. Blige. The first campaign, touting the Monai Repairing Collection (a nourishing three-step hair system) will launch on and in Sephora stores May 1.
