Zoë Saldana, Thandie Newton, et al. sign cosmetic deals... and here's a look at them being bold and beautiful!
Thandie Newton for Olay
In addition to Carrie Underwood becoming the new, U.S. Brand Ambassador for skincare giant Olay, the company has also -recently- named Newton as its Brand Ambassador in the United Kingdom.
Speaking with an Olay team member, it was verified (as also reported on graziadaily.co.uk), that, Newton will be the face of Olay's Total Effects product line.
Responding to the announcement, Newton said, "When filming, my working day is hectic, so trying to strike a balance between work, a family and time for myself can be challenging... Olay is a brand I trust and I love the fact that the range offers me an all-in-one, anti-ageing moisturiser which takes care of all my skincare needs." Olay chimed in, saying, "Thandie's pragmatic approach to a beauty routine ensures her skincare is as multi-tasking as she is."

Zoë Saldana for Avon
After having starred in the HIGHEST grossing film of-all-time, "Avatar" (20th Century Fox, 2009), Saldana has found a way to lend her beauty to more than just an IMAX screen. Earlier this year, it was reported that beauty company Avon had recruited Saldana to be the face of their Eternal Magic fragrance.
Geralyn Breig (Senior Vice President and President of Avon North America), said, "We are thrilled to have Zoë as the spokesperson for Eternal Magic. Every woman wants to be unforgettable and Zoë perfectly embodies that feeling. She's a rising star in Hollywood and has built a strong reputation for playing empowering characters that leave a lasting impression... We were drawn to her inner and outer beauty, and feel she represents the perfect combination of strength and femininity." Saldana responded, saying, "I'm very proud to be working with Avon and to be the face of Eternal Magic... it means so much to me to be associated with a company that shares my values and believes in empowering women."

Keri Hilson for Avon
Being knocked down -apparently- is not in Hilson's vocabulary. Since recording her debut album, she has been on the move and making industry connections at every turn; now, it's her turn to front a worldwide cosmetics brand.
This year, in addition to Saldana becoming a spokesmodel for Avon, Hilson was also tapped by the company! Bob Briddon (Group Vice President, Marketing, Avon North America), says, "We are thrilled to have her on board as the face of Imari and our Color collection. Keri embodies everything the Avon woman aspires to be... beauty, grace, confidence and success."
Hilson replied, saying, "I'm so excited and honored to be Avon's newest face, [they have] always been dedicated to empowering women through beauty. I've always strived to do the same with my music. To be a part of that experience means a tremendous amount to me."

Zoë Kravitz for Vera Wang
Her father (Lenny Kravitz), sang "Let Love Rule," but the younger Kravitz shows that she was born to rule, pictured in Wang's advertisements for the fragrance Princess and Glam Princess.
Not one to rest on her beauty (or family name), Kravitz proves that her talent is better fitted for the big screen; she's appeared on film -alongside Jodie Foster- in "The Brave One" (Redemption Pictures, 2007), and she's currently filming a new installment to the "X-Men" series.
