Curly girl and R&B sensation Janelle Monáe has joined the ranks as CoverGirl‘s newest spokesperson.
“I believe it’s time that women truly owned their superpowers and used their beauty and strength to change the world around me,” Monáe said in a press release. “Becoming a CoverGirl is truly and honor and a gift: it opens up a new platform for me to inspire women to feel stronger, braver and more beautiful inside and out.” Monae’s print campaign will debut this month in a 10-page advertisement in the September issue of Vogue.
It’s refreshing to see women without conformist, mainstream looks get to finally share the spotlight.
