Neelam Gill has been announced as the new ambassador of L’Oreal Paris UK, the first British-Indian to secure the title.
The 21-year-old said in an Instagram post: “I am INSANELY proud to announce I am the new face of L’Oréal Paris UK. Saying ‘this is a dream come true’ would be an understatement. I feel honoured to be working alongside such an influential company, especially being the first British Indian model! Growing up I felt left out & unrepresented knowing that nobody in mainstream media looked like me, and now I hope to change that.”
She will be fronting three campaigns in 2017, including advertisements for a new range of Matte Addiction lipsticks and a True Match foundation campaign.
Gill was also the first model of Indian origin to be used in a Burberry campaign, in 2014. She has also modelled for Vogue and Abercrombie & Fitch.
