EXCLUSIVE: Anya Taylor-Joy Named Dior Global Brand Ambassador – WWD

Dior has named Anya Taylor-Joy as its newest global brand ambassador.

The award-winning actress will represent the design house’s women’s fashion, designed by women’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, and its makeup, led by image director of makeup, Peter Philips.

Taylor-Joy’s appointment comes after almost a year of the actress wearing numerous custom Dior looks at her many appearances. Most recently, the star wore a custom pale yellow couture dress paired with a bright yellow opera cape at the 2021 Emmys in September. She also wore a custom ‘50s-inspired pink satin dress with a matching fascinator at the 2021 Venice Film Awards for the premiere of her upcoming thriller “Last Night in Soho.”

The actress also wore two custom Dior gowns at the 2021 Golden Globes in February, where she picked up her first award for her breakout role in the Netflix limited series, “The Queen’s Gambit.” Taylor-Joy first wore a custom emerald green couture dress with a matching evening coat. She later changed into a Cinderella-esque light blue satin strapless dress after the awards ceremony.

Taylor-Joy joins a long list of actresses, musicians and models that have recently signed with Dior as brand ambassadors, including Yara Shahidi, Nina Dobrev, Christian Serratos, Blackpink’s Jisoo and Iris Law.

The actress has had a breakout year thanks to her roles in “The Queen’s Gambit” and film “Emma,” as well as for her red carpet style. In an interview with WWD in February, Taylor-Joy’s stylist, trademarked image architect Law Roach, described the actress as “fearless” when it came to fashion.

“I always get the girls that are a bit fearless when it comes to their style,” Roach said. “I think that’s what the attraction is because that’s the way I look at styling and fashion. I would definitely say [her style] is fearless with a touch of whimsy.”
