Zendaya has just become Lancôme’s new, and youngest, global ambassador.  

The announcement came as part of a special event last Thursday at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills.  Zendaya was joined by fellow ambassadors Lupita Nyong’o and Taylor Hill.

This marks the actress and singer’s second major makeup contract.  She signed a deal with CoverGirl when she was just 19 years old. She’s now 22.

Zendaya also has several entertainment projects on the horizon.  She just signed on to co-star in the forthcoming Dune remake and she’s leading the new HBO series Euphoria. She also launched her debut collection with Tommy Hilfiger over the weekend.

It seems she’s poised for a breakout year.

In other news… 

Eva Longoria has joined the cast of the CW pilot Glamorous, which follows the life and career of primetime TV’s first-ever gender nonconforming lead character.  The show is being produced by Damon Wayans, Jr.

Drake scored his 10th top 10 album when his decade-old mixtape So Far Gone was uploaded to streaming services.  It moved 45,000 units for a no. 5 debut.
