Nia Long is not only snagging role after role in television and film, the goddess is also making history as the first Black woman to become a spokesperson for White Diamonds fragrance.
Long, 43, announced her brand ambassador role on Instagram with the caption, “My beauty secret to make sure I always dazzle and shine on the red carpet @ElizabethTaylor White Diamonds Lustre #DiamondsInABottle #Spon.” White Diamonds was created by fellow actress Elizabeth Taylor.
In addition to last year’s The Best Man Holiday
and this year’s The Single Moms Club
, Long stars on the new series “The Divide,”
which has been pegged as the show to give Olivia Pope some competition. She's a seasoned actress no doubt (Boyz n the Hood, anyone?), but venturing into brand ambassador territory is a first for the mom of two. In a statement she said:
This is the first time I’ve ever done anything like this, and to be connected and affiliated with a brand that has a legacy of success and of so many important contributions to our country is an honour.
Elizabeth Taylor said White Diamonds was her ‘Diamonds In A Bottle,’ and that’s what Lustre really is to me – Lustre just adds that extra sparkle…I personally love the juicy pear and raspberry notes in Lustre – it gives it a fresh, fruity feminine touch.
Sales will go to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.
