Ellen is truly a comedian with a heart of gold and nowhere is that more evident than in her latest project. After naming Talia Castellano, a 13-year-old makeup artist with cancer, an honorary CoverGirl in September, Ellen launched a nationwide search for the next Covergirl.
We couldn’t be more pleased with her choice: Alexis Harris. Harris, an 18-year-old student at the University of Texas-San Antonio, has an exceptional background in education and community involvement. The beauty, who was raised along with her three brothers by a single military Mom, got her Associates degree before graduating from high school. She also founded and runs S.M.I.I.L.E (Students Making Impacts In Lives Everywhere).
As the new Covergirl, Harris will pose with Ellen for an ad campaign to run in People Magazine.
