Zendaya Just Made Major History At A Luxury Beauty Brand And I'm Like "SECURE THE BAG, SIS!!!"

Zendaya said she's "freaking out" about possibly becoming BFFs with fellow spokesperson Lupita Nyong'o.

It's only February, but actress/singer/fashion gawd Zendaya's having one helluva year. Not only is she starring in two of the most anticipated projects of 2019— SPIDER-MAN: Far From Home and HBO's Euphoria — but she's also just been named the newest face of Lancôme!

The French luxury beauty brand recently broke the news on Instagram, announcing "It’s official: Zendaya is the new Lancôme Global Ambassador. Welcome to Lancôme!"

This makes the 22-year-old former Disney Channel star Lancôme's youngest ambassador (she's seven months younger than fellow ambassador Taylor Hill).

"As I grow into womanhood and this new phase in my life and career and my maturity that I'm trying to figure out, I think Lancôme is the perfect place to do that," Zendaya said at the brand's Women in Hollywood event last night.

And considering that Lupita Nyong'o became the brand's first black celebrity ambassador in 2014, this makes Zendaya the second.

And speaking of Lupita, the Black Panther star was on hand to welcome Zendaya to the Lancôme family. And because Zendaya is all of us, she admitted that she was "geeking out" about possibly becoming "best friends with Lupita."
