Eiza said she was ‘honored’ by the partnership, later telling Vogue that it meant a lot as a Latina woman to be the face of such a big brand.
She softly rested her hand on her forehead with slicked back tresses, letting the ornate body paint do the talking.
A gradient of colors from cascading up her arm and torso, she showed off her assets modestly, telling the fashion publication she felt like she ‘rolled on magical rainbow sand.’
Though the process ultimately made for a stunning shoot, she confessed that the painting process took eight hours.

‘It took eight full hours, almost nine actually, which is insane. And then it took almost four hours to get rid of it,’ she shared, adding that taking the paint off made her skin so soft and was the ‘ultimate scrub.’
The Baby Driver actress has spoken about about the importance of representation for Latina women as a Hollywood actress, adding that this campaign with a major fashion house holds a lot of weight fo her.
‘I grew up watching all these beauty campaigns in the ’90s and I wouldn’t see a lot of Mexican women in them, especially in these large-scale brands.
‘The fact that girls in Mexico who are brown and Latina like me will see a campaign like this and recognize themselves in it with the scale of the brand makes me so honored and happy,’ adding that she wants people to feel ‘included and seen.’

Eiza has shared that she felt like she was able to expand her repertoire with I Care A Lot, having been tapped mostly in ‘hot accomplice’ style roles or as the ‘token Latina,’ in conversation with ET.
‘It was fun for me to play a role that I hadn’t done before and hadn’t been allowed to play too because of the predisposed ideas of what I should be playing,’ she shared.
The film’s success has shed new light on the in-demand actress who has been itching to play more serious roles that cast her as the lead.
While announcing that her latest film Godzilla vs. Kong was available on HBO Max on Wednesday, she joked, ‘brought a very profound performance. A true thespian.’
