Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is known to the world as a writer, author, and public speaker. Most don’t realize that she is also a fashionista in her own right.
In fact, in October of this year, she was made the New Face of Boots No7 makeup. But in true fashion, Chimamanda revealed in an interview with The New York Times that she did not like some of the photos used to promote the campaign.
"I decided to do this No7 thing because I thought it might be fun, and then they will give me free makeup. And I’m always up for free things. It wasn’t a carefully calculated thing. It was actually just my being blinded by the selfish overwhelming love of makeup. But I have to be honest, there were times when I thought, “Well, what have I done?” I wasn’t quite aware of how many pictures of me would be out there. It makes me feel a little vulnerable,” she said.
