Naomi Watts is the new face of L'Oréal Paris!

The skin, hair and beauty giant revealed the news on their social media feeds this week.

"We're in Paris to officially announce the addition of #NaomiWatts to the L'Oréal Paris family! #spokesperson #worthit #beauty #actress," they proclaimed on Instagram.

On Twitter the company declared , "Such a thrill to finally announce #NaomiWatts as our new spokesperson!!! #Paris #actress #worthit."

The accompanying pics showed the British-born Watts chatting with French media about her new role. For the occasion, the 46-year-old paired a tailored black pantsuit (akin to the jumpsuit Watts wore to TIFF ) with a windswept pony and minimal jewellery. Her standout accessory? A pair of bright red lips.

The mom to two , who has been with her partner Liev Schreiber for nine years, has long been hailed as an A-lister who eschews traditional Hollywood beauty standards.

In 2011, the Diana actress told PopSugar: "I've just always believed that less is more. In the daytime, I always think women look funny with loads of foundation on. I'd much rather see skin, even if it's a little bit flawed."

Her take on plastic surgery is equally honest; in 2014, she opened up to Town and Country about what it feels like to be an actress who is over 40. "I'm really just feeling my way. This being an industry town, that self-consciousness just pervades. There are days when I feel victorious that I have, you know, gotten this far [without plastic surgery]. But there are a million days when I look in the mirror and think, ‘I’m going to do it.’”

Watts is the latest in a slew of actresses who have signed on to work with the beauty brand. Other spokesmodels include Penelope Cruz, Blake Lively, Eva Longoria, Jane Fonda, Cheryl Cole and Julianne Moore.

The stunner can currently be seen in the Bill Murray flick St. Vincent, which premiered at TIFF in September.
