  • Music superstar Megan Thee Stallion has been named the newest Revlon Global Brand Ambassador.
  • Megan joins the pantheon of famous Revlon faces, taking her place among a diverse and accomplished group of women past and present, including current Beauty Ambassadors Gal Gadot, Ashley Graham, Sofia Carson, Jessica Jung, Adwoa Aboah and Eniola Abioro.
  • This is the star's first beauty ambassador role, but we doubt it will be the last. 

After an unfortunate incident landed Megan Thee Stallion in hospital when she got shot a few weeks ago, the sun is starting to shine again in the "Hot Girl Summer" hitmaker's world.  

This is why it's a festive week for Megan's fans. Earlier this week, Variety dropped their latest issue fronted by Megan Thee Stallion on the cover, where she is hailed as the "hottest rapper right now," while this morning, the girl's girl hip hop artist dropped the official "WAP" music video with Cardi B, which sees fans welcoming a new anthem for sexually liberated women.

And on Thursday, iconic mega beauty brand Revlon, made the hot announcement that Meg is their latest Global Brand Ambassador. Proof - once again - that authenticity always wins.

“I’ve always set the bar high for myself with everything I do, but to now be a brand ambassador for Revlon, it feels like a new level,” said Megan. “To me, the Revlon brand stands for both beauty and female strength and I’m excited to help define what that means to a new generation of women," the 25-year-old adds.

Known for her breakout hits, including viral TikTok anthem “Savage,” Megan Thee Stallion is the ultimate triple threat: music artist, social media sensation, and cutting-edge tastemaker. She continues to set and conquer goals in both music and television with a slew of awards and accomplishments to her name. Most recently, she released the song, “Girls In The Hood,” and hit #1 on the Billboard charts with her track “Savage”.

She is also co-anchoring HBO Max’s reality show competition, Legendary, which highlights modern drag ball culture, working on her new album and pursuing her bachelor’s degree in Health Administration at Texas Southern University.

“Megan is a remarkable talent and we know she’s only going to continue to rise to new heights”, said Silvia Galfo, Revlon Global Brand President.

“When we first approached her about a partnership nearly a year ago, we were drawn to her confidence and fierce ambition as much as her power to hold nothing back. She loves to express herself with makeup and is a constant inspiration to her fans on living boldly. It’s that authenticity and unapologetic spirit that we admire, and we are thrilled to welcome her to the Revlon family,” adds Silvia.

Over its 80+ year history, Revlon has defined modernity with its electrifying “Unforgettable Women” campaign in the 1990’s and signed the first Black and plus-size models to beauty contracts. Revlon was also the first mainstream makeup brand to feature a woman of color in a national beauty advertisement in the 1970’s.   

Megan Thee Stallion will begin appearing on behalf of Revlon across media platforms from this month.
