I'm absolutely thrilled to announce that Zoe Saldana is officially the new face of L'Oréal Paris! Yay! The Dominican and Puerto Rican actress will be joining celebs Blake Lively and Lea Michelle as a brand ambassador and I honestly couldn't think of a better star to represent for us Latinas. Zoe isn't just gorgeous, she's elegant and, most importantly, incredibly confident!

"I want to share that value with women so they can embrace it and execute life with confidence. I am thrilled to join this beauty journey with such an inspirational brand," Zoe wrote in a statement to Hollywoodlife.com. "As a L'Oréal Paris spokesperson, being able to say, 'We're worth it,' means so much to me."

I'm actually surprised L'Oréal Paris didn't think of adding Zoe to their roster before. She represents everything today's modern woman wants to be. "Zoe astonishes with her audacious style and feline beauty. Attached to her values, unafraid to speak her mind, and confident in her own skin, she embodies infallible force and asserted feminity. With her toned dancer's silhouette, magnetic charm and delicate elegance, this spectacular actress is joining the L'Oréal Paris family and we're so proud to welcome this new Woman of Worth," Cyril Chapuy, L'Oréal Paris' global president said in a statement.

Zoe isn't the first Latina to work as a spokesperson for L'Oréal Paris either. Jennifer Lopez and Eva Longoria have also worked with the brand before. In fact, come to think of it, quite a few Latina celebs have represented major beauty brands. Here's a look at some of our favorites!
