Natasha Poly Is The New Face Of L’oréal Paris

Discovered by Carine Roitfeld, then Editor of French Vogue, Natasha Poly has appeared on the cover of the magazine a record-breaking seven times. She has been a Calvin Klein icon, a Victoria’s Secret angel, and, in 2009, was selected by US Vogue as one of the top-models ‘of the moment’. Today L’Oréal Paris is thrilled to welcome her as an international Spokesperson.

“Natasha has a magnetic beauty that has established her major presence on the fashion scene in just a few years. Stunningly beautiful, our new Russian icon has a glamorous, edgy sense of style, complemented by a striking personality. I am thrilled to welcome one of the world’s most talented Super Models who has truly made her outstanding destiny”, says Cyril Chapuy, Global Brand Pre- sident of L’Oréal Paris.

At 25, Natasha’s story is a special one. She has followed a unique path that has taken her from her childhood in the small city of Perm near the Urals to international fashion stardom.

“It’s not a coincidence that I’ve taken on this role with L’Oréal Paris. Before becoming a model, I dreamed of being a professional makeup artist! I’ve always loved cosmetics and I always need to have my L’Oréal Paris products backstage at fashion shows” explains Natasha Poly. “Color Riche lipstick and Elnett hair spray are iconic products for me, and I’m so excited to be representing them”.

Natasha joins the L’Oréal Paris family which includes many elite Super Models such as Doutzen Kroes, Bianca Balti, Claudia Schiffer, Liya Kebede and Barbara Palvin, as well as international stars like Gwen Stefani, Patrick Dempsey, Jane Fonda, Hugh Laurie and Beyoncé Knowles.
