Dior has named British-American actress Anya Taylor-Joy as its latest global brand ambassador in the brand’s core domains of fashion and makeup. The 25-year-old movie star, whose style encompasses supreme sophistication and retro glamor, will wear creations designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri.

After winning over audiences and critics in “The Witch,” Anya Taylor-Joy brilliantly slipped into the shoes of tormented chess prodigy, Beth Harmon, in “The Queen’s Gambit.” It was a role that earned her a host of awards, including prestigious accolades like a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe. A true chameleon in front of a camera, the actress also seems able to effortlessly enhance any clothing style, although she often seems to favor classic Hollywood-esque styles.

In “The Queen’s Gambit,” the vintage looks worn by Anya Taylor-Joy were so popular that searches for fashion pieces seen in the Netflix series really took off. Checked coats, white wool coats and turtleneck sweaters came back to the forefront as soon as the drama was released, inspiring new collections from many fashion houses.

In addition to embodying the future fashion creations of Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director of Dior’s women’s collections, the actress will also represent the house’s makeup, helmed by image director of makeup, Peter Philips.
