British model (and #TeamBeautiful’s best friend in our head) Jourdan Dunn was announced as the new spokesmodel for Maybelline New York, joining a list of major supermodels, like Christy Turlington and Emily DiDonato, who previously represented the company. The first advertisement she will appear on, for the brand’s “Go Mascara,” arrives this month.
“It is an honor to be a spokesperson for such an iconic brand,” Dunn said in a press statement published on Vogue.co.uk. “I am proud to say that I am a Maybelline girl and hopefully I can make people feel the same way I did when I saw the advertisements growing up. The brand imagery is always beautiful and positive. To now be a part of that is a dream come true!”
She even took time to announce it on Twitter.

The 23-year-old continues to make a mark in the industry, making waves with a steamy shoot in GQ and even developing her interest in cooking, and remains one of the best Black models in the game right now. Considering that there aren’t many of them on the runways, this news is exciting. We can’t wait to see the lovely ads in glossies soon!
