Keri Hilson wants women to feel comfortable in their own skin.

The singer has recently been announced as the latest face of Avon and is keen to use her new role by helping fellow females become more confident.

She said: "I love to teach women that they should feel confident and feel good about themselves for themselves."

Keri is replacing Jennifer Hudson as the cosmetic firm's newest spokesperson and says it's a dream come true.

She said: "I love fragrance. I love beauty."

Avon is also pleased at the new partnership and think she is the perfect person to represent the brand.

Lily DeStefano, executive director of Avon North America Beauty, told WWD: "We had a great partnership with Jennifer Hudson, and we found that so powerful that, in the same spirit, we wanted to take it a step further. Keri just brings a youth and vitality to our brand. I think that she's just the perfect transition."

Keri, 27, will now join Reese Witherspoon, Zoe Saldana and Fergie as Avon faces.
