De Beers Names Lupita Nyong’o as First Global Ambassador
The actor will star in its new campaign and support its charitable initiatives for women and girls in southern Africa.
Nyong’o will star in its new brand campaign, “De Beers: Where It Begins.”
Australian photographer and director Lachlan Bailey will follow Nyong’o alongside the diamond’s journey from rough stone to finished jewelry.
“With her rare magnetism and elegance, Lupita Nyong’o is a testament to the power of boundless possibilities,” said Marc Jacheet, CEO De Beers Brands. “Embodying modern and responsible luxury, Lupita is an inspiration for all of us.”
Nyong’o has starred in “12 Years A Slave,” “Star Wars,” “Us,” “Black Panther,” and “Wakanda Forever.”
She was the first Kenyan and Mexican to win an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, and, in 2020, Forbes named her one of Africa’s 50 Most Powerful Women.
“I’m honored to be the first global ambassador for De Beers,” said Nyong’o.
“This campaign brings to life the transformative power that I feel when I wear De Beers’ diamond creations, and the pride in knowing where they come from and the good they do. Even more importantly, my partnership with De Beers allows me to extend my advocacy for women and girls around the world.”
As a brand ambassador, she will support De Beers’ “Building Forever” commitment, which advocates for women and girls in diamond communities.
De Beers is part-owned by the citizens of Botswana, Namibia, and South Africa.
Nyong’o and the company will work together towards De Beers’ goals of engaging 10,000 girls in STEM, supporting 10,000 women entrepreneurs, and investing at least $10 million across southern Africa. The plan is to achieve these goals by 2030.
The campaign will launch globally on Nov.3.
