Victoria’s Secret Angel Taylor Hill named face of Lancôme

There's nothing cliché about this American in Paris.

As the youngest model in the Victoria’s Secret Angel family, Taylor Hill could easily rest on her laurels. But the 20-year-old’s campaign with Lancôme may just catapult her to supermodel status.

Taylor will join the ranks of Julia Roberts and Penelope Cruz as well as fellow Angel Jasmine Tookes. She expressed her glee at being the new face of the French beauty brand.

“I am very excited and honoured to join Lancôme. I love the vision behind this feminine brand,” said Taylor. “This new role of ambassadress is a major step in my career, a dream that has become reality.”

So, what makes the American beauty cut out for the City of Lights aesthetic?

“The French actresses always look so clean and fresh,” the model told Vogue. “But nowadays, I do see American movie stars embracing more of a natural glow, which I love.”

Lancôme’s International General Manager, Françoise Lehmann, has said that Taylor represents a modern Lancôme, in harmony with its time, with a subtle mix of sensuality, ingenuousness and sweet yet striking beauty.”

On Tuesday, Taylor posted on Instagram the news with a photo of her carrying a bouquet of roses. Needless to say, congratulations are in order to Taylor for joining the Lancôme family!
