Armani beauty names Tessa Thompson as its newest face
Armani beauty announced actress Tessa Thompson as the newest face of its makeup, fragrance and skincare product line. Thompson will feature in both the campaigns for the iconic Luminous silk foundation and the new Lip Power, shot by Swedish photographer Mikael Jansson. Luminous Silk Foundation comes in a range of 40 colors to suit every skin tone. Lip Power is a long-wear satin lipstick formulated with protective, comfortable oils and high-intensity pigments to deliver vivid color with all-day wear, comfort and a lightweight feel, says Armani beauty. In addition, its innovative drop-shaped bullet allows for ease of application and precise, defined lines.
“My idea of beauty applies to every woman as it enhances her personality and uniqueness. 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”, said Giorgio Armani.
Tessa Thompson added: “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.”
Thompson recently starred in “Sylvie’s Love” and the 1920s-set film “Passing,” released in November 2021 on Netflix. Last year, Thompson also launched her own production company, Viva Maude, for which she signed a first-look deal with HBO/HBO Max, beginning with the book to screen adaptations of “The Secret Lives of Church Ladies” and “Who Fears Death.” In addition, Thompson created and will executive produce the docu-series for Hulu entitled “Puzzle Talk,” which is currently in development.
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.
Sarafinasaid: This is a good look for Tessa, but I can’t help but feel like it’s an odd choice for Armani beauty. To me, Tessa doesn’t fit the profile of “Armani beauty” with her down-to-earth, girl next door vibes. However, if you look at the beauty brand’s roster, it’s a collection of different personalities and genders. And there doesn’t seem to be any cohesion between the brand and its ambassadors. So with that said, I stand corrected — Tessa fits just right.
