Julia Roberts: The Lady of Lancôme

“It’s kind of like every girl’s dream, really,” said Julia Roberts, referring to her new role as Lancôme’s global ambassador. Roberts said she was attracted to Lancôme in part because of its French je ne sais quoi. Roberts is hardly the only celebrity cashing in on her famous face.

Sarah Jessica Parker, for one, is joining Halston with far more responsibility — as the company’s president and chief creative officer.
