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.
