Revlon may have inked a deal with Jessica Biel this week, but they’re not the only beauty giant adding an A-lister to their ranks. L’Oreal has just announced that they are welcoming two big-name stars to their roster of celebrity faces: Freida Pinto and Evangeline Lilly. Despite persistent internet rumors that the Slumdog Millionaire star would be the face of Estee Lauder, the Indian actress says she is thrilled to be the face of L’Oreal. “I am very moved to be joining the great L’Oreal Paris family and all these personalities: a family I am now proud to be a part of,” Freida says in a statement. Also stepping in front of the lens will be Lost star Evangeline Lilly, who says, “It is a source of great pride for me to represent a brand whose ambition is to respond to every person’s aspirations to beauty and contribute to the fulfillment and well-being of everyone.” Check back for more information on their dazzling new campaigns. Tell us: What do you think of L’Oreal choosing Frieda and Evangeline as their newest spokespeople?

Good for Freida. Now maybe she will finally whiten her teeth.
Don’t know much about Evangeline Lilly, so whatever.

Aali- that what makes Freida real! I’d much rather have the teeth she’s got that a row of piano keys!

They’re both gorgeous- good for them :)

Freida’s alright. Why didnt they continue with someone like Aishwarya or pick one of the other Indian actresses (Bipasha, Lara, Sonam, Deepika?)

Mary on

qteepie, Aishwarya is still with L’Oreal. I imagine they chose Freida because is more internationally known (especially in the US) than any of those other Indian actresses.

I honestly have never heard of any of the other Indian actresses you have listed. Let’s face it–Freida is hot right now and any company would be insane to not consider her as their face/spokesperson.


I love that there is finally a brown skin beauty representing L’Oreal! FRIDA IS BEAUTIFUL!!!

Momofuku Lover on

Freida is amazing. WOW.

well… you guys are all talking more about Freida Pinto but I want to talk about Evangeline Lilly. I think she is such an amazingly gorgeous girl with some big guns and a slaming body jiji… but yeah she is very very beautiful i wish i was like her love u evii!!
oh.. and uh.. freida is very beautiful but at the cannes film festival she looked UH-GLY!! especially her hair – it looked like an afro. But that is a good thing that now they are puting more and more international women on TV. :)
