Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has always been open about her love of beauty and fashion. The feminist writer and author is the newest face of Boots No7, a beauty line sold at Boots drugstores, which can be found all over the U.K.

In a simple, ethereal commercial, Adichie wears a gold sheath dress and wanders through a field, bathed in light.

“Then I woke up, and I saw in full color, full confidence again,” she says. “Because the truth is makeup doesn’t actually mean anything. It’s simply makeup. It’s about how I feel when I get it right, what makes me happy when I look in the mirror.”

The television ad is set to air on October 21st, watch it below.
