L’Oreal Announced a History-Making Black Model as Its New Spokeswoman
Maria Borges made history when she became the first black woman to walk in the Victoriaâ€™s Secret fashion show with her natural hair, and now sheâ€™s the new spokesmodel for Lâ€™Oreal.
â€œI believe in the beauty of diversity,â€ Maria said in a press release. â€œAnd the empowering message that a girl who started from the bottom can be an international beauty symbol and be living proof that our dreams are valid and the future ahead of us is bright.â€
What a beautiful sentiment.
And how nice to see L’Oreal choosing a spokesmodel who isn’t another blonde-haired, blue-eyed white girl.
Current spokesmodels for L’Oreal also include Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez, Karlie Kloss, and Hari Nef.
From one Maria to another, congrats, girl.
Make our name proud.
