Trans model Munroe Bergdorf has got herself a new job as the face of make-up brand Illamasqua.

After L’Oreal fired her only days after making her their first trans model, Twitter called for Rihanna to hire her.

Illamasqua explained the upcoming campaign will feature Munroe alongside model Rain Rove. The campaign will centre around gender fluidity and beauty.

When Munroe was first fired from L’Oreal, Illamasqua made a statement on Twitter regarding their stance on the issue.


They said: ‘As a longstanding Illamasque collaborator, we are angered to hear that Munroe Bergdorf has been dropped from the L’Oreal True Match Campaign.

‘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.’

She took to Instagram to make the announcement.

Munroe said: ‘Excited to announce that I’m one of the faces of the next @illamasqua campaign. #illamafia’.
