Julia Roberts Joins Lancôme Brand

Known for her mega watt smile and down to earth disposition, Oscar-winning actress, Julia Roberts, has recently been named "ambassadress" for Lancôme cosmetics. Her duties begin in 2010 … although the company is still not giving specifics about what she will be doing exactly. According to Lancôme's blog last Friday, VP of public relations Kerry Diamond reported that, "We're all thrilled that Julia has joined the Lancôme family. She's in great company, with our other amazing spokesmodels like Kate Winslet and Anne Hathaway."

Needless to say we are all looking forward to seeing Julia in our favorite fashion and beauty magazines after the New Year!
