Fenty Beauty has a new face. Rihanna's cult cosmetics label has announced its latest ambassador, in the form of actor Amandla Stenberg.

The star, known for her roles in "The Hunger Games" and "Everything, Everything," has teamed up with the beauty label to act as its first-ever ambassador, featuring in campaign images and social media content, as reported by Elle.

"I wanted to become a part of the Fenty Family because it's one of the few beauty brands that make me feel like myself!" Stenberg said in a statement published by the Fenty Beauty Instagram account. "Fenty Beauty's whole ethos makes me feel empowered and excited to let different facets of myself shine."

The brand also hinted at exciting projects in the pipeline, writing: "We're so excited to have you, #AmandlaStenberg! Big things coming, and they ain't even know it!" It was a sentiment echoed by Stenberg, who cryptically told her own 2.2 million Instagram followers: "More to come."

Stenberg is no stranger to the beauty set, having previously featured in a Stella McCartney Pop Fragrance campaign back in 2016, alongside Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon. She has also landed the covers of magazines including Teen Vogue, Dazed and Elle UK.

The move is the latest high-profile announcement from the Fenty Beauty camp, following the launch of its first skincare products in the form of a lip scrub and lip balm earlier this month.
