Meet The New “Face”

Janelle strikes a pose for the CoverGirl camera!

The CoverGirl makeup brand has a fresh new face! Singer/songwriter and trend icon Janelle Monae became the newest CoverGirl “face” today. It’s an ideal match between the beauty brand that’s all about “doing you” authentically and the uniquely stylish star who just finished shooting her first advertising session with the brand. (Her CoverGirl ad is set to debut in the September issue of Vogue magazine.) Janelle Monae, who is already a style icon with her signature black-tie wardrobe and pompadour hairstyle, is on a unique mission to encourage women to use all their artistic powers to play, change, and transform.

“I believe it’s time that women truly owned their superpowers and used their beauty and strength to change the world around them,” she said. “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.” Brava!
