Armani Beauty names Tess Thompson as newest ambassador
Armani Beauty announced on Friday the appointment of American actress Tessa Thompson as its newest face.
Shot by Swedish photographer Mikael Jansson, Thompson will feature in both the campaigns for Armani Beauty's iconic Luminous Silk Foundation and its new Lip Power.
"My idea of beauty applies to every woman as it enhances her personality and uniqueness," said Giorgio Armani, in a press release.
"Tessa Thompson struck me with the radiant energy she exudes, the vibrant calmness of her way of being. I am delighted to be able to work with her and express a new facet of the feminine kaleidoscope of Armani beauty."
Thompson stars wearing the Luminous Silk Foundation, a complexion enhancer that comes with a range that spans 40 colors, to suit every skin tone. Likewise, Armani's Lip Power is a longwear satin lipstick formulated with protective oils and high-intensity pigments to deliver vivid color with all-day wear.
"Our ideas around what is beautiful, culturally, are shifting, and becoming more inclusive. What I love about Armani is the way in which it empowers any kind of woman to feel her best self," said Tessa Thompson, about her new ambassadorship.
Los Angeles-born Thompson first rose to acting fame with roles in the film Dear White People in 2014, followed by Ava DuVernay's 2014 film Selma. Thompson is also known for her role in the Emmy-nominated drama series Westworld; and as Valkyrie in the Marvel film Thor: Ragnarok in 2017, followed by Avengers: Endgame in 2019.
She is to reprise the role in the anticipated Thor: Love and Thunder, set for release in 2022.
Thompson joins Armani Beauty alongside actresses Cate Blanchett, Zhong Chuxi, Adria Arjona, Alice Pagani, and Greta Ferro; actors Ryan Reynolds, Jackson Yee, and Nicholas Hoult; and models Barbara Palvin, Madisin Rian and Valentina Sampaio.
