NEW YORK, June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Maybelline New York announced today that Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima is returning to the brand. She previously served as global spokesperson from 2003-2009. The Maybelline New York veteran will rejoin an elite group of current spokeswomen which includes Christy Turlington, Emily DiDonato, Jourdan Dunn, Marloes Horst, and a host of others.
"We are honored to welcome back Adriana to our amazing roster of spokespeople," declares Jerome Bruhat, Global Brand President of Maybelline New York. "Globally, women admire not only Adriana's beauty but also her commitment to helping those in need. We are honored to partner with her again. Her passion for life and positive energy is undeniable. She truly is a Maybelline woman."
Adriana is an effective communicator and currently has the world's largest social media footprint of any fashion model online. She has graced the covers of the Italian, Turkish, Spanish and Brazilian editions of Vogue, American and Spanish editions of V Magazine, American, Spanish and Brazilian editions of Harper's Bazaar, and American Elle among others. Adriana has also worked with esteemed photographers such as Steven Meisel, Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Peter Lindbergh, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, and Mario Testino.
"It's wonderful to be a part of the Maybelline New York brand again," said Adriana. "I am proud to say that I am a Maybelline girl, and I look forward to the work we will do together. The imagery is always beautiful and positive which is what I admire most about the brand. To be a part of that again is a dream come true!"
Fluent in English, French, Italian, Spanish, and her native language of Portuguese, Adriana has traveled the world extensively and feels a strong social duty to give back through philanthropy. She has found rewarding charity work that is dear to her heart as a mother through the St. Luke Foundation for Haiti that helps give expecting mothers access to medical services in a safe and respectful environment.
