Beauty buzz: Anya Taylor-Joy and Emma Raducanu are Dior's newest Global Brand Ambassadors
Dior announces the newest Global Brand Ambassadors for Women's Fashion and Makeup
The newest faces of Dior Beauty certainly are an impressive pair. The first of the two new Dior ambassadors is none other than actress Anya Taylor-Joy. The Emma actress' appointment comes as no surprise—she made her silver screen debut in the 2015 horror flick, The Witch, but was catapulted into mega-stardom after her performance in the 2020 Netflix show, The Queen's Gambit. Since then, she has become quite the red carpet favourite, with her signature style having earned the starlet her latest gig.
The second addition to the Dior family is British tennis star Emma Raducanu, who made a name for herself as the winner of the 2021 US Open. The athlete recently stunned at the premiere of the latest James Bond flick, No Time To Die, wearing a dress from Dior's Cruise 2022 collection. You could say that she is a perfect match for the Dior brand. No? We'll show ourselves out.
In their new roles as Dior's Global Brand Ambassadors, the pair will be representing the visions of Dior Makeup's Creative and Image Director Peter Philips and Women’s Creative Director Maria Grazie Chiuri.
