L’Oreal Paris is on a mission to make beauty more inclusive, and their mission continues with Maria Borges.
A regular Victoria’s Secret model, Borges was recently named the new face of L’Oreal Paris, according to ELLE. Borges first made a name for herself in the industry back in 2015, says The Cut, after walking the runway of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show with natural hair.
In addition to fronting ad campaigns for the beauty brand, ELLE reports that her new position allowed her to “elect one model to make her runway debut at Paris Fashion Week, Olamide Ogundele from Nigeria.”
As for Borges herself, The Cut shared that she is ready to promote inclusivity and facilitate change.
“I believe in the beauty of diversity and the empowering message that a girl who started from the bottom can be an international beauty symbol and be living proof that our dreams are valid, and the future ahead of us is bright.”
