While continuing to break streaming records, Ariana Grande now looks to take the fashion industry by storm, as the 25-year-old signer-songwriter is the new face of Givenchy. The French luxury house began teasing the partnership yesterday, before ultimately making the announcement this morning.
“A Grammy award-winning performer, songwriter and singer, she naturally embodies the spirit of the Givenchy woman with impertinence, generosity and a lightning wit — all cloaked in a touch of mystery,” Givenchy said in a statement.
Conversely, Grande added, “I am so proud to be the new face of Givenchy. It is a House I have forever admired and to now be part of that family is such an honor. I love this clothing and the confidence and joy it brings to the people wearing it. Not only is the clothing timeless and beautiful but I’m proud to work with a brand that makes people feel celebrated for who they are, and unapologetic about whatever they want to be.”
Ariana is set to star in the label’s FW19 campaign, which will be revealed in July.
