The latest bit of beauty news is both surprising and unsurprising at the same time: Jennifer Lopez has signed on as a global ambassador with L’Oréal Paris. While it’s no shock that the beauty megabrand would want a stunner like J.Lo to be their face, the remarkable part is that it took this long for a hair and makeup company to snag the star. Another unexpected twist: Though her beauty claim to fame is dewy skin and a nude lip, Lopez’s first ad (due out in January) will actually be for the brand’s new EverSleek hair-care products.
Also on Lopez’s calendar for 2011 is the release of a new CD called Love. Looks like a busy year ahead for the singer/dancer/actor/fragrance queen/fashion designer/wife/mother of twins and now beauty ambassador. But even with her powerpacked résumé, we can’t forget, she’s still Jenny from the block.
