Anya-Taylor Joy has bagged a significant contract with one of her most-loved fashion houses!
According to reports, the rising star has been announced as the global ambassador for Dior. The luxurious brand shared that Anya-Taylor will represent the women’s fashion and makeup lines and be the new face for both.
As the global ambassador, “The Witch” star’s duties include “showcasing the designs and creations of women’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri and creative and image director of makeup Peter Philips.”
The announcement comes as no surprise since the 25-year-old actress has rocked several pieces from the fashion house for notable red carpet appearances in the past year.
Some of her most notable looks include the custom emerald green couture dress for the 2021 Golden Globes, a pink 50s-inspired satin dress at the Venice Film Festival, and recently a jaw-dropping yellow couture dress with a dramatic cape at the 2021 Emmys.
Anya-Taylor joins the likes of 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 and beauty lines.
Anya-Taylor also has an official partnership with the jewelry brand Tiffany & Co. The announcement comes weeks before the “Queen’s Gambit” actress is about to be honored at the upcoming CFDA Awards as the Face of the Year. This is the first of its kind in the award ceremony’s history.
She will be recognized alongside Zendaya, who will get the most prestigious award of the night, the CFDA Award for Fashion Icon. Zendaya, at 25, will be the youngest person to receive the award.
A Paparazzi Fight
Back in April, The Blast reported that Anya-Taylor was at the center of drama in New York after a photoshoot went wrong. The actress was in the Big Apple shooting a campaign for Tiffany & Co. when aggressive paparazzi photographers took over the shoot.

The photographers were trying to get a shot of the Netflix star when things got out of control, and one of the photographers got physical with his colleagues.
Luckily, officers of NYPD were quick to jump in and de-escalate the matter before anything dangerous happened. Throughout the scuffle, Anya-Taylor remained professional, wearing her beautiful smile as she donned a classic black jumpsuit ensemble standing next to other models.
It’s not sure if any charges were pressed against the irate paparazzi, but the trouble fizzled out as soon as it started.
