Just in time to kick off fashion week, Lancome announces the newest spokesmodel to join their roster of famous faces that includes Anne Hathaway, Kate Winslet and Juliette Binoche. 19-year-old Arlenis Sosa was a featured model in Italian Vogue‘s famous “Black Issue” from this past July, and will make her runway debut this week, walking in more than a dozen shows, including Oscar de la Renta, Donna Karan, Carolina Herrera, Proenza Schouler, Zac Posen, Narciso Rodriguez and Tommy Hilfiger. The Dominican-born beauty, who will begin appearing in ads in 2009, couldn’t be more thrilled about her new position with the French beauty brand, saying “I feel so honored and lucky. Lancome is an amazing brand so this is a dream come true.” Tell us: What do you think of Lancome’s decision to make Arlenis for their latest spokesmodel?

As dominican I am so happy for her, for all of us… now, there will be more make up options for our complex skin tones… I am just so very happy that a top brand is paying attention to Latinas/Black/Caribbean women.
I am so buying whatever they put out there!
I know have a personal reason to be loyal to the brand…they are showing they care about the other customers…the customer that has the money to buy great quality products but can’t find it at Macy’s counter. Bravo Arlenis! and be safe and God Bless you…I hope her foundation puts a website soon…I will love to help and donate.
