Who is Luma Grothe, the new L’Oréal Paris brand ambassador?

This week L’Oréal Paris announced its latest spokesmodel: Luma Grothe. Though not yet a household name, the 22-year-old model has already walked the runways of some of the world’s leading brands.

Entry into the ultra-exclusive club of L’Oréal Paris brand ambassadors — whose members include Blake Lively, Karlie Kloss, Eva Longoria, Lara Stone, Barbara Palvin, Jennifer Lopez and Julianne Moore among others — is not typically granted to those who haven’t already made a name for themselves in fashion, beauty or film. Suffice it to say Luma Grothe has an impressive resume, and it won’t be long before she is well known to the general public.

Sensual and striking, Luma Grothe’s unique beauty combines a slender and delicate frame (73-58-84cm / 29-23-33in) and a face that is at once cat-like, ultra-feminine and sublimely elegant. Born in Brazil, the emerald-eyed supermodel owes her distinctive features to a combination of German, Japanese and African genes.

Discovered at the tender age of 16, Luma Grothe has already appeared on catwalks worldwide, including those of fashion capitals Paris, New York and Milan.

The young woman has modeled for some of the leading names in the industry, including Burberry Prorsum, Vivienne Westwood, Dsquared2, Leonard, Jeremy Scott, Etam and Versace. She also posed in a campaign for Ermanno Scervino and in the lookbook of the J. Crew x Lacoste tie-up.

Now the young model has gained entry into the beauty industry thanks to her new partnership with L’Oréal Paris. This May, the collaboration could lead her to the red carpet at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, where the cosmetics brand’s ambassadors pose for the photographers each year.

"I am very proud to represent such an inspirational brand," said the model in a release announcing the tie-up. "To me, ’Because you’re worth it’ is even more than a legendary slogan I grew up with. It’s a motto that continues to resonate in my generation."
