Shiny hair. Hot husband. Burgeoning lifestyle empire. You wouldn’t have thought anything was missing from Blake Lively‘s life, but it turns out there was one last thing absent from her résumé: A major makeup campaign.

RELATED: The most over-the-top beauty treatments you can get!

Well, you can stop feeling sorry for her, because that all changed today. According to the L’Oréal Paris Instagram account, Lively will be the brand’s newest face. Or as they put it, “Annonce exclusive: Nous souhaitons la bienvenue à la somptueuse et talentueuse Blake Lively, nouvelle ambassadrice L’Oréal Paris ! Définitivement elle le vaut bien!” (Rough translation thanks to three years of high school French: “Exclusive announcement! We’re excited to welcome the gorgeous and talented Blake Lively, our new lady ambassador! She’s definitely worth it!”)

The star took the stage at a L’Oréal event wearing something only she could pull off: An off-the-shoulder, bouclé houndstooth mini with a flared skirt and jeweled belt, all by Balmain. She kept the rest of the look simple, sporting the all-American beauty look (glossy hair, bronzed skin, glossy lips) she’s known for.

L’Oréal confirmed the news Wednesday morning, saying she’ll be a global spokesperson appearing in ads for products including cosmetics, hair care and hair color. And judging by the photos below, we have a feeling it will be pretty gorgeous, not unlike the star herself. What do you think of this beauty news?

Gorgeous girl

How about the face of L’Oreal not be one who has had extensive plastic surgery to her face? She is a gorgeous girl because she paid her surgeon for that and anyone who wants to dispute this, should see her very early work in Hollywood. Sad that she had surgery when she was so pretty to begin with.

Okay. Obviously she is better looking than I am, but I think she is pretty average, girl-next-door looking. Not gorgeous, in my opinion, but an everyday girl kind of look.

shes my girl crush, so lovely

Dawn on

She is a good choice, and if you really look at models, many are not that great looking, but they have that something special about them when in front of the camera

Amy on

I agree with Jeeny. They should have gotten a natural beauty, not someone made out of plastic.

Jenny on

I think Blake’s dress is actually from Balmain’s Spring RTW 2014 collection (look 36 to be exact).

Ugh…Perfection. Love Her.
