Following in the footsteps of fresh-faced stars like Gabrielle Union, Hayden Panettiere, Susie Castillo, Vanessa Hudgens, Jennifer Garner, Diane Lane and Emma Roberts, Miranda Cosgrove is the latest member of the Neutrogena family. The 16-year-old recording artist and star of Nickelodeon’s iCarly has signed on as the beauty giant’s newest Brand Ambassador. “My friends and I have always loved the Neutrogena brand and their ability to help inspire confidence. So when I found out I was actually going to be part of the Neutrogena family I was really excited,” Cosgrove tells PEOPLE. “I have always looked up to many of the actresses who are already Neutrogena Ambassadors, and others are my peers, so it is an amazing honor for me to be part of this incredible group.”  So what exactly was it about this new face on the block that made her a perfect fit? “Miranda embodies the youthful and vibrant spirit that has always been part of the Neutrogena brand” says Jim Colleran, President of Neutrogena. “We are proud to have her as our newest ambassador.” Susan Sweet, General Manager, Neutrogena, adds “Her energy will be a wonderful addition to our 2010 partnerships and initiatives.” Now a triple-threat, Cosgrove’s first ad for Neutrogena will break in early spring, as will her her debut solo album, while the actress will voice a character in Universal’s new animated feature Despicable Me opposite Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig, opening in July.

I agree that Carly is a beauty, however, when will there be a black beauty representing your products? My daughter and I have used your products for years. If you are having trouble finding a black beauty to present please contact me.
Pat.
I hope that this comment get posted.

I’m 36 and watch iCarly with my kids. There are almost no shows on network TV you can watch as a family so I enjoy watching this with my kids. We also watched Drake & Josh.

She’s so cute but I’ll admit I mostly watch b/c of Spencer…he’s a riot!

My daughter and I watch iCarly all the time! I’m happy that she has stayed wholesome for younger children to look up to. She is a great role model! Keep it up Miranda!

Frederika on

I am 21 and Im always watching Icarly!! I love the entire cast, especially Sam!! Miranda is a great role model for children! Neutrogena made a great choice!

Ok now I seriously don’t feel bad because I love watching iCarly with my kids and I love watching it when my kids are not there. Miranda and Sam are wonderful role models for girls especially in this day and age when 15 and 16 year old girls are trying to act and look like 21 to 30 yr old women.

Good job Neutrogena you have picked an awesome role model to represent your product.

Patricia – “Following in the footsteps of fresh-faced stars like Gabrielle Union,” are literally the first words of the article. Maybe I’m crazy, but isn’t she a stunning black beauty? Just sayin’.

Susan on

I’m so happy to hear other adults watch ICarly, I am 38 and watch it all the time – it’s just so funny and sharp! (And, I don’t have kids) – so now I don’t have to be embarrassed anymore!

I love iCarly. It’s a great show that I can watch and not have to worry about if my kids watch too. So many shows today are way too mature to watch while the little ones are up. This is an intriguing show that is family friendly.

I think she seems like a lovely and poised young woman. I’m glad that we don’t see her in the “news” dating 2o year olds.
Young girls today need to see more positive role models like Miranda. Also, to the woman that thinks Neutrogena hasn’t shown a black beauty. Gabrielle Union is a beautiful black actress that has been a spokesmodel for the company for quite some time, I believe.
