Lupita + Tiffany & Co. make a heavenly duo

The Kenyan actress is the company’s first black celebrity spokeswoman

Tiffany & Co., the 179-year-old luxury jewelry brand, has selected Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o as one of its new advertising faces.

The new ad campaign, called “Legendary Style,” also features actress Elle Fanning and models Christy Turlington and Natalie Westling, and was cast and styled by Grace Coddington, the legendary former Vogue magazine editor who is now Tiffany & Co.’s creative director.

Nyong’o has been on a roll lately. The 12 Years a Slave actress was named a Lancôme brand ambassador in 2014, and also earned a Tony Award nomination this year for her role in Eclipsed.

Jill Hudson is the senior style writer for the Undefeated. She is an evolved nerd, a caffeinated shoe fanatic, and a maker of long lists and perfect martinis.
