Taylor Hill is thrilled to have been selected as Lancôme’s newest brand ambassador.

The 20-year-old model has made a splash in the fashion world of late, walking the runway for the likes of Versace, Alexander Wang and Carolina Herrera, as well as landing a contract with Victoria’s Secret, becoming one of the elite “Angels” for the famed American lingerie company.

She joins familiar faces like Daria Werbowy, Kate Winslet, Lupita Nyong’o, Julia Roberts and Lily Collins as ambassadors for the French luxury beauty brand.

“I am very excited and honoured to join Lancome,” she said in a statement. “I love the vision behind this feminine brand. This new role of ambassadress is a major step in my career, a dream that has become reality.”

Taylor, who has over four million followers on Instagram, was discovered when she was 14 in a barn in Granby, Colorado by Jim Jordan, a model agent and photographer.

With her expressive blue eyes, bold brows, candid smile and an undeniably rock chic style, Taylor exudes self-confidence. Accordingly, Lancome views Taylor as a natural fit for the brand, and sees her as personifying the millennial woman.

“We are delighted about this new collaboration with Taylor, who represents a modern Lancome, in harmony with its time, with a subtle mix of sensuality, ingenuousness and sweet yet striking beauty,” explained Francoise Lehmann, Lancome's International General Manager.

“She is a very inspiring young woman for her generation: she is immensely curious, open-minded and has a positive outlook on life.”
