The news follows on the heels of Grande dethroning Selena Gomez as the most followed woman on Instagram. Since releasing her album Sweetener in August 2018, Grande’s following has grown by over 13 million followers.
In a press release, the label stated, “It is with great excitement that the House of Givenchy reveals its new face, a strong, independent woman of refreshing character and style: the multi-talented Ariana Grande. A modern muse and the voice of a generation, Ariana has emerged as one of the most influential forces in pop culture today. 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.”
The 25-year-old posted the press release on her Instagram feed, where she wrote, ” i don’t have words to describe how much this partnership means to me. such an incredible honor and with a brand i love sooooo much. thank you from the bottom of my heart and i’m so excited for all things ahead….. 🖤 #arivenchy@givenchyofficial #givenchyfamily
While Givenchy has teased some images highlighting Grande’s famed poney tail, official Craig McDean-shot images will be released in July 2019.
