Maybelline New York has signed model Emily DiDonato as a new spokeswoman for the brand.

DiDonato, who is 18 years old and joins Christy Turlington, Julia Stegner, Erin Wasson and Jessica White at the L’Oréal-owned brand, stands 5 feet 10 inches tall, and has light brown hair, blue eyes and an Angelina Jolie-esque pout. She was born and raised in upstate New York.

Last fall, she was discovered by ReQuest Model Management, according to Maybelline, and soon she was signed up for a 12-page editorial shoot in Glamour magazine. She then became the face of Marciano by Guess spring 2009 campaign. DiDonato, who still lives with her family, will graduate from high school this summer, Maybelline added.

“Emily’s very New York background, Italian and Irish, makes her inevitably so Maybelline,” said Cyril Chapuy, general manager of Maybelline New York Worldwide.

DiDonato will make her debut for Maybelline New York in TV ads for Color Sensational Lip Color planned for this summer, the brand’s much-hyped lipstick launch.
