Chimamanda Adichie is the New Face of Boots No7's make-up, campaign launches on Friday

Award-winning Nigerian author and feminist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is the new face of Boots No7 make-up, with her debut campaign launching on Friday, October 21. Opening up about the campaign in Vogue’s November 2016 Real Issue, in "The New Face Of Beauty: You", she said:
"I think much of beauty advertising relies on a false premise – that women need to be treated in an infantile way, given a ‘fantasy’ to aspire to… Real women are already inspired by other real women, so perhaps beauty advertising needs to get on board.
The campaign launches on television, online, in print and in outdoor media on October 21, with Adichie speaking about how she used to fear being taken less seriously because of her love of make-up, but later came to embrace it as a tool, an enhancement and as part of her own identity. "I love make-up and its wonderful possibilities for temporary transformation. And I also love my face after I wash it all off,” she said in a statement. "There is something exquisitely enjoyable about seeing yourself with a self-made new look. And for me that look is deeply personal. It isn’t about what is in fashion or what the rules are supposed to be. It’s about what I like. What makes me want to smile when I look in the mirror. What makes me feel slightly better on a dull day. What makes me comfortable"
