Anya Taylor-Joy has been tapped as the new global ambassador for Dior.

In recent months, The Queen’s Gambit actress has aligned herself with the French luxury brand, having worn a draped purple tulle gown to the Critics Choice Awards in March and a stunning yellow satin gown to the Emmy Awards in September.

On Monday, a Dior representative announced that Anya has signed on to be the face of the label’s fashion and make-up categories.

“Dior is delighted to announce @AnyaTaylorJoy as new global ambassador for fashion and makeup,” they captioned a photo of her at the Critics Choice Awards. “Seen wearing several House creations in recent months, for the 26th @CriticsChoice Awards she epitomized modern elegance in a draped and macramé-detailed tulle gown from the #DiorCouture Spring-Summer 2020 collection by @MariaGraziaChiuri, with makeup by @DiorBeauty.”

Neither Anya nor Dior creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri has commented on the appointment.

However, the star has now cemented her status as one to watch in the fashion world, as she will also be honoured with the first-ever Face of the Year prize at the upcoming Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Fashion Awards.
