On April 1st, AKB48's Takahashi Minami attended a talk show as the new image character for cosmetics brand, 'Lancome'. She will be featured in the May issue of beauty magazine, 'MAQUIA'.

During the event, Takahashi revealed that she had heard about Maeda Atsuko's graduation almost a year ago. She exposed a behind-the-scene episode from the group's recent Saitama Super Arena concert saying, "On the first day, she told me that she was thinking of announcing it. It didn't really hit me at that time, but right before we got on stage, she told me 'please assist me', and gave me a handshake. That's when I thought she was serious."

Takahashi then showed her support for her fellow member saying, "It's not something she decided on recently. It's the result of what she's been thinking about for a long time. So please support her."

The talk show was held as a collaboration project between 'Lancome' and 'MAQUIA', and was held for women who purchased "MAQUIA×Lancome Limited Doll Eye Kit". Takahashi shared that the members of AKB48 usually do their own make-up, and said that she uses Kojima Haruna as an example. "She's the most picky, and I want to use her as a reference, but her face is different from mine... I quietly study her."

Takahashi questioned herself if she was the right girl to be chosen as the image model. She smiled and said, "It's right before my 21st birthday, so I will do my best to become a step closer to an elegant woman."
