It’s reassuring to know that a mom of three over the age of 40 can be the ‘face’ of a leading beauty product company. No dewy twenty year old for Lancome, the beauty power house picked Julia Roberts as their ambassador. Julia said of her new gig:
“It’s kind of like every girls dream, really. To be 42 and have three kids and be a working mom, it’s a great moment to be asked to do this and to be able to do it. I think it says a lot about Lancôme and what they stand for….
I get all these things to play with and test and give my opinion about. And it’s quite exciting without having to invest all of myself in how I look because they did come to me as me, which is a pretty casual mom. But you know, it’s nice to up your game a little bit.”
When asked what changes she’d have to make she said “I think I have to stand up straighter and wash my face more.”
She’s already posed for the photographer Mario Testino to promote the Définicils Precious Cells Mascara – the ads will debut in Europe in March and in the states this summer.
