Trans model sacked by L’Oreal is now representing Illamasqua

The 29-year-old transgender model Munroe Bergdorf was the first trans woman to be the face of L’Oreal UK but she was fired almost immediately as she wrote a post on her Facebook page saying that all white people without an exception were racists. And now another cosmetic brand hires her. She has now been announced as the face of Illamasqua cosmetics, as she announces via Instagram, saying that she is really excited to be the face of the campaign. As a longstanding Illamasqua collaborator, we are angered to hear that Munroe Bergdorf has been dropped from the L’Oreal True Match Campaign,” the brand wrote on their Twitter. “Illamasqua is a brand that stands proudly and unashamedly for diversity and equality. We don’t stand or accept any form of racism, but we also believe Munroe’s comments have been edited out of context by a certain media title (who we won’t bother naming) without telling a true story. In order for our generation to move forward and create a more inclusive society, it’s not just about showing diversity. We must all be free to talk about social issues in a constructive and tolerant way.”
