L’Oréal Paris has confirmed that actress Lea Michele is the brand’s newest ambassador. Lea’s talent took her from Broadway to the big screen where she stole the hearts of Americans on Glee as a show stopping soprano Rachel Berry.
“Growing up on stage, I was introduced to make-up at a young age and I will never forget the first time I tried on a L’Oréal Paris iconic lipstick – it was instant glamour and I’ve been hooked ever since,” says Michele. “I’ve been a fan of L’Oréal Paris’ products for years, but it wasn’t until I was a bit older that I fully understood the brand’s message of a woman’s worth, which I wholeheartedly agree with. L’Oréal Paris encourages women to embrace their beauty and celebrate their self worth. I feel very honored to be working with L’Oréal Paris to help spread that message to young women.”
At just eight years old, Michele made her professional debut as Young Cosette in the classic Broadway production Les Miserables. Since then, she has shared the stage with Broadway greats in Ragtime, Fiddler on the Roof and Spring Awakening, earning herself a Drama Desk Award nomination for “Outstanding Actress in a Musical” for her role in Spring Awakening.
Michele is perhaps best known for her role in the TV television series Glee, which returned this month for its fourth season. Throughout her role as Rachel, Michele has received a People’s Choice Award, a Teen Choice Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award. She has also been honored with an Emmy Award nomination and two Golden Globe nominations.
