Dior named Monday American-Argentine-British actress Anya Taylor-Joy as a global ambassador for fashion and makeup.
“Dior is delighted to announce Anya Taylor-Joy as new global ambassador for fashion and makeup,” the luxury house wrote on Monday.
Taylor-Joy is set to showcase designs by women’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri and creative and image director of makeup, Peter Philips.
The appointment comes after Taylor-Joy donned a number of Dior designs over the past year as she experienced a banner season with the breakout success of the Netflix limited series “The Queen’s Gambit“, which earned her a lead actress Emmy nomination, a Golden Globe, SAG Award and Critics Choice Award.
The actress was also seen in designs by the luxury house at a number of the awards show and festival appearances as of late the Emmys in a pale yellow silk satin dress with opera coat by Dior Haute Couture, in a berry ballgown at the Critics Choice Awards, and in a pink satin ensemble at the Venice Film Festival.
The actress is reuniting with director Robert Eggers, who helmed her 2015 smash hit movie “The Witch”, on a remake of the silent horror movie “Nosferatu“.
“Nosferatu”, which was released in 1922, is loosely adapted from Bram Stoker’s famous novel “Dracula“.
Taylor-Joy has a busy 2021 ahead of her with starring roles in the untitled David O. Russell movie, “The Menu”, and the thriller “Laughter in the Dark”. She is also set to star in the Mad Max spinoff “Furiosa” in the title role.
The actress will be seen next in Edgar Wright’s new psychological horror movie, “Last Night in Soho“, out on October 29.
