According to Managing Director of the brand, Corne Nel, the brand is committed to the credence that “To be beautiful is the birth right of every woman and as a company we want to celebrate each woman’s unique beauty through individuality, diversity and original expressions of beauty.” He added, “Adeola has all of these qualities and as a prestige beauty brand we wanted to choose a spokesperson that African women could identify with.”

After being selected as the brand Ambassador, Adeole asserted, “Being chosen as an Elizabeth Arden Brand Ambassador in Africa is an incredible honour.” She noted, “Elizabeth Arden herself was an entrepreneur, women’s advocate and a champion for holistic beauty, inspiring women all over the world. I am proud to be associated with a brand that embodies such important values.”
