Givenchy on Friday has unveiled pop diva Ariana Grande as the face of its Fall-Winter 2019/2020 campaign, complementing the diminutive star with a voice that belies her size, "a strong, independent woman of refreshing character and style."
"A modern muse and the voice of a generation, Ariana has emerged as one of the most influential forces in pop culture today," Givenchy, added.
"She naturally embodies the spirit of the Givenchy woman with impertinence, generosity and a lightning wit – all cloaked in a touch of mystery."
The announcement came one day after the fashion brand teased the reveal, posting to social media a video clip with the silhouette of a woman quickly identified as Grande thanks to her signature high, extra-long ponytail. Givenchy portrays Grande as a modern-day Holly Golightly from the classic film "Breakfast at Tiffany's" dressing her in the character’s iconic little black dress – a Givenchy number – worn by actress Audrey Hepburn whom the brand considers its "original ambassador."
"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 honour," the 26 year old said of her first campaign for a major luxury house.
