Anya-Taylor Joy named global ambassador for Dior women’s fashion
Anya-Taylor Joy has signed an important contract with one of her most beloved fashion houses!
According to reports, the rising star has been announced as Dior’s global ambassador. The luxury brand has said Anya-Taylor will represent the women’s fashion and makeup lines and be the new face of the two.
As a Global Ambassador, the “The Witch” star’s duties are to “showcase the designs and creations of Female Art Director Maria Grazia Chiuri and Makeup Creative and Image Director Peter Philips”.
The announcement is not surprising since the 25-year-old actress rocked several pieces in the fashion house for notable red carpet appearances over the past year.
Some of her most standout looks include the custom emerald green couture dress for the 2021 Golden Globes, a 50s-inspired pink satin dress at the Venice Film Festival and recently a breathtaking yellow couture dress with a dramatic cape in Emmys 2021.
Anya-Taylor joins Yara Shahidi, Nina Dobrev, Blackpink’s Jisoo and, most recently, 18-year-old tennis star Emma Raducanu, who was named earlier this month as the face representing both fashion lines and of beauty.
Anya-Taylor also has an official partnership with jewelry brand Tiffany & Co. The announcement comes weeks before the “Queen’s Gambit” actress is set to be honored at the upcoming CFDA Awards as the face. of the year. It is the first of its kind in the history of the awards ceremony.
She will be honored alongside Zendaya, who will receive the most prestigious award of the evening, the CFDA Award for Fashion Icon. Zendaya, at 25, will be the youngest to receive the award.
A paparazzi fight
In April, The Blast reported that Anya-Taylor was at the center of the drama in New York City after a photoshoot went awry. The actress was in the Big Apple filming a campaign for Tiffany & Co. when aggressive paparazzi photographers resumed filming.
Photographers were trying to snap a picture of the Netflix star when things got out of hand, and one of the photographers got physical with his co-workers.
Thankfully, it wasn’t long before NYPD agents stepped in and defused the case before something dangerous happened. Throughout the brawl, Anya-Taylor remained professional, sporting her lovely smile as she donned a classic black jumpsuit set while standing next to other models.
It is not known if any charges were laid against the angry paparazzi, but the trouble ended as soon as it started.
