Jennifer Connelly named the face of Shiseido (AGAIN) after first appearing in their ads 25 years ago!

Jennifer Connelly has been signed as the first global spokesperson for Shiseido – but this isn’t her first time representing the brand.

“I’ve had a long relationship with Shiseido – I worked with them in the Eighties on an ad campaign, and have been using their products ever since,” the Academy Award-winning actress told WWD. “It’s nice to reconnect with them after so many years.”

Here’s more from the press release!

As Shiseido Co., Ltd. celebrates its 140th anniversary, the company announced that it has signed Academy Award-winning actress, Jennifer Connelly, who previously represented the company in Asia. Connelly will be the namesake brand’s global spokesperson and face of its highly acclaimed premium skincare line Future Solution LX. Connelly’s first advertising campaign as global spokesperson will debut this fall.

“I am honored to be working with Shiseido again and to be representing the Future Solution LX line globally,” said Jennifer Connelly. “Like Shiseido, I believe it is important to prepare now for our future well being. I look forward to sharing my journey with Future Solution LX with women worldwide.”

While this marks the first time the brand will be working with a global spokesperson, this will not be the first time Shiseido has worked with the classic beauty; more than two decades ago, Connelly appeared in an advertising campaign for a Shiseido makeup brand that was distributed in Japan.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jennifer back to our family as we celebrate our 140th anniversary,” stated Hiroshi Maruyama, General Manager of the International Marketing Department at Shiseido Co., Ltd. “Jennifer’s genuine personality, commitment to her family and approach to living a beautiful life embodies the core values of our company, and match those of the Shiseido customer. We believe that she portrays the essence of the Future Solution LX line perfectly and that her inner and outer beauty will inspire our customers.”

This spring, Connelly is appearing in her latest feature film “Virginia.” She has also starred in acclaimed movies including, “A Beautiful Mind,” for which she won an Oscar and Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress, “Reservation Road”, “Blood Diamond”, “Requiem for a Dream” and “The House of Sand and Fog.”

Love her, she’s so beautiful! Perfect for this line!

Amanda Seyfried has been tapped to be the face of Cle de Peau Beaute, a division of the giant Japanese cosmetics company Shiseido Co. Ltd. The 24-year-old “Chloe” star is named the global spokesperson of the cosmetic and skincare luxury line.

The blonde beauty, who starred in the romantic drama flicks “Dear John” and “Letters to Juliet” this year, will be appearing in the brand’s Spring 2011 ad campaign, shot by British photographer David Sims.
