Ariana Grande has been unveiled as the new face of venerable luxury fashion house Givenchy.
The chart-dominating thank u, next singer follows in the footsteps of the likes of Naomi Campbell and Bella Hadid, with the news of her appointment being broken by the seriously swanky French label over the weekend.
“It is a house I have forever admired and to now be part of the family is such an honour,” Ariana says in a press release issued by the clothing company. She goes on to state that she’s “proud to work with a brand that makes people feel celebrated for who they are, and unapologetic about whoever they want to be.”
To celebrate the beginning of an uber-chic relationship, Ariana and her new colleagues have decided to peer back into the brand’s history, alighting on a former ‘face’, Audrey Hepburn, for inspiration.
In the images released thus far, it would seem that the diminutive, record breaking superstar has been raiding her grandparent’s VHS collection and getting bang into Hepburn’s 1961 romcom classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
More information about the formal nature of the collaboration – which was first teased late last week – between Givenchy and Ariana is due to arrive in the next few months.
