- Title: L'Oreal celebrates female empowerment with glamorous runway show
- Date: 28th September 2019
- Summary: (SOUNDBITE) (English) ACTRESS, EVA LONGORIA, SAYING: "Women's self-worth is very important. It's more than a lipstick or a hair colour, this is, we're talking about - "Because You're Worth It" (L'Oreal slogan) is finding your value in your life, whether that's at work or if that's in your relationship - just knowing that you're worth more and you're worth the best and that potential for you is an endless possibility. And so, to me, L'Oreal is always representing that, and always exuding that, through their ambassadors, you know, we have a diversity - a rainbow of diversity on the catwalk today. You have Soo Joo (Park) from Korea, and Luma (Grothe) from Brazil, and Aishwaryw (Rai) from India, and me from Mexico, and really that definition of beauty is different all over the world, and so to have one stage celebrating all of that difference is really remarkable."
