Solange Knowles as the New Face of Rimmel

Rimmel London have cast Solange Knowles (sister of Beyonce Knowles for those out there who didn't know *shame on you*) as the new face of the UK cosmetics brand, and will be using her (gorgeous and flawless) face to showcase their upcoming Autumn campaign.
Now while I love Solange's artistry and public image, I am a little uncomfortable that Rimmel; who promote a London Beauty image with their famous London of 'Get the London Look' chose to use an African American Icon instead of an Afro-British one just sits a little bit uneasy with me. Maybe I'm being a bit too sensitive and reading too much  into it but does Rimmel think by using her image, instead of a local one they could successfully promote their cosmetics line to the British black community, despite not even having a foundation shade that is appealing to our skin-colour range???

Hmmmmm . . . .  . Well this is certainly one to ponder

Well despite this Solange looks great. To check read her interview, click here
