Yara Shahidi, the talented 21-year-old actress and activist, has been named the newest Dior Global Brand Ambassador. The Grown-ish star announced her exciting new role on Instagram, sharing a video of herself posing in a stunning Dior ensemble next to a serene pond. As a global ambassador, Shahidi will represent both Dior beauty and fashion, showcasing the creative work of women’s fashion creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri and image director of makeup Peter Philips.
This partnership comes as no surprise, as Shahidi has previously collaborated with Dior for their Dior Stands with Women initiative on International Women’s Day. Under Chiuri’s creative direction, the legendary fashion house has become increasingly vocal about women’s empowerment and activism, making Shahidi an ideal fit for the brand.
The actress has also donned Dior on numerous occasions, including her breathtaking appearance in Dior Haute Couture at the Critics Choice Awards earlier this year.
Shahidi joins an impressive roster of Dior ambassadors, including Natalie Portman, Cara Delevingne, BLACKPINK member Jisoo, actor Nina Dobrev, and model Iris Law.
As a global ambassador, she will play a crucial role in promoting the luxury fashion house’s products and values to a wider audience. With her passion for activism and her undeniable charm, Yara Shahidi is set to make a significant impact as the newest face of Dior.
