Gemma Chan is the new global face of L'Oreal Paris


BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / November 18 2020

There are few actresses who elicit an overwhelming sense of excitement when you mention their name in a room full of women. But one such lady that everyone seems to  have heart eyes over is Crazy Rich Asians star, Gemma Chan. In fact it would seem the 37-year-old has left a lasting impression on people the world over, with L’Oréal Paris just announcing her as their new international ambassador.

The prestigious title is one that has only ever been held by other heavyweights in the entertainment industry, including Penelope Cruz, Beyonce and even Australia’s own, supermodel, Duckie Thot.

In a statement released by the brand, Chan expressed her excitement at working with one of beauty’s  biggest names, due in part to their commitment to diversity. 

“I’ve always believed that we should embrace our difference as our strength. So I’m thrilled to join L’Oréal Paris, a family of empowered women of all origins standing together to show the power and beauty of diversity. The L’Oréal Paris message to every woman: “believe in your self-worth” is as needed today as ever.”

We look forward to seeing Chan’s upcoming campaigns with the beauty powerhouse, with our fingers kept crossed for  a mascara to dupe Chan’s natural lashes. Needless to say we’re constantly transfixed by her signature doe-eyed look.

Briar Clark got her start in the media industry in 2017, as an intern for Marie Claire and InStyle. Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
