Janelle Monáe is the new face of CoverGirl® and we couldn’t be happier. Props to CoverGirl® for stepping outside of the box from ‘Easy and Breezy,’ Girl Next Door’ to pompadour hair, black and white wearing hipster. CoverGirl® is often known for the more traditional fair; however, their selection of Monáe is far from traditional. Her look is the exact revamp that the brand needs to bring it back to life.
Equally as excited about the news, Monáe tweeted:
“I believe it’s time that women truly owned their superpowers and used their beauty and strength to change the world around them,” Monáe said in a statement. “One of my core values is to help redefine what it means to be a strong and beautiful woman in the music and fashion worlds and to empower the wonderful things that make us unique.
“Becoming a CoverGirl® is truly an honor and a gift. It opens up a new platform for me to inspire women to feel stronger, braver and more beautiful inside and out.”
