Actress, comic book writer and activist Amandla Stenberg appears as one of four models in the campaign for Stella McCartney’s new fragrance, POP and we couldn’t be more happy about that.Amandla’s speeches and tweets about racial equality are particularly popular since her comments came at a time when many were protesting the questionable deaths of several African American men and women who died while in the custody of law enforcement. A true example for young generations.
Amandla appears alongside Lourdes Leon, a performing arts student at the University of Michigan and the daughter of Madonna; singer Claire Boucher, known as Grimes, and Kenya Kinski-Jones, the model, student, animal activist, and daughter of Quincy Jones and Nastassja Kinski.
Stella chose all the models — two of whom she’s known since they were small children — for their strength of character, influence and personality, she said during our interview.
Amandla is best known for her role as Rue in The Hunger Games, and has also acted in Colombiana as the young Cataleya (Zoe Saldana plays the adult Cataleya) and Rio 2 (voicing Bia, Blu’s younger daughter).
“An extraordinary talent and actress, Amandla is a great young girl who has a lot to say and I love that. She’s not afraid to speak her mind, which makes her an inspirational role model for girls all across the world,” Stella said and she couldn’t be more true.
Pop by Stella McCartney Eau de Parfum, from $50. Available at Sephora and sephora.com, starting April 7
