If you’ve got the Wednesday blahs, this should perk you right up: a new Lupita Nyong’o Lancôme ad has just arrived! And true to form, the ads are glam, gorgeous and totally gushworthy. See for yourself:


The star, who’s been a Lancôme advocate since she first became a red carpet superstar earlier this year, shows off a striking fuchsia pout courtesy of the line’s L’Absolu Rouge in Rouge Amour #160 (no word on where that dress is from, though we’d happily borrow that too). And in a behind-the-scenes video, she talks about how much fun she had modeling for the ad, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

“Working with Mert and Marcus was a lot of fun. They were very precise, very specific about what they wanted, but they did it with such a joy,” she says. “Makeup for me is like the frame of an art piece. Wearing lipstick makes me feel well-dressed.”

She also shows off her newly acquired French accent (being a face of a French beauty line has its perks) and shares that after the shoot, the team had a dance party. So in addition to that lipstick and the dress, we’d like to score an invite to the next photoshoot as well.
