NEW DELHI: Indian model Diana Penty has replaced Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone as the new face of international cosmetics brand Maybelline New York.
With this, she joins the ranks of international supermodels like Adriana Lima and Christy Turlington.
"I feel great to get this opportunity to endorse a brand that is so vibrant and truly multi-ethnic. For me it is not only about whom I am replacing but it's about being on the same platform as international models and get international exposure," Penty said in a statement released here Monday.
Penty is a student of the Elite Model Management and its CEO Sushma Puri was all praise for the young model.
"Diana has a face that is very versatile and appeals to both Indian and international markets and she is also young, beautiful and confident. This makes her the ideal choice for any international brand," Puri said.
Deepika Padukone was named the brand ambassador of Maybelline in June 2007
