But now, shes proud to reject so much of those notions. Davis says: It feels right to me. And I feel like LOral found me at a perfect time, I sort of found them at a perfect time, sort of like how I found my husband, you know?

Starting next month, Davis will from all TV, print and digital campaigns for LOral Paris Age Perfect line. Shes joining a crew of other A-list LOral Paris ambassadors, including Eva Longoria, Helen Mirren, Elle Fanning, Cline Dion, Aja Naomi King and Camila Cabello.

The whole LOral moniker, Im worth it, always gives me chills, Davis says. I think that statement is everything. Its the sort of mantra we should tell all our little girls.
