Victoria’s Secret Angel Maria Borges is spreading her wings over the beauty industry after being named the newest brand ambassador of L’Oreal Paris. The 24-year-old beauty continues her model takeover after ripping the runway for countless luxury brands like Badgley Mischka and Givenchy and making history as the first model to walk the Victoria’s Secret fashion show with natural hair.
The Angolan model has already starred in campaigns for L’Oréal’s Hydra Genius and Infallible Lip Paint launches and will be the face of the upcoming Matte Obsessions campaign. With diversity being a hot topic in beauty and fashion, the brand has also tapped transgender model Hari Nef to star in a campaign alongside Maria.
In a recent press release, Maria shared her pride in helping to redefine beauty standards in the industry. “I believe in the beauty of diversity and the empowering message that a girl who started from the bottom can be an international beauty symbol and be living proof that our dreams are valid, and the future ahead of us is bright.”
