Alluring the New Holly Golightly: Ariana Grande is the New Face of Givenchy
Ariana Grande is sure to be having “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” every morning as Givenchy revealed her as their new brand ambassador. It might be a coincidence that one of her singles “7 Rings” from her latest album, “Thank U Next,” gives a nod to the 1960s classic, which features the founder and namesake of the French fashion giant as its costume designer.
Plethora of Memes
On May 9, the haute couture brand posted on their official Twitter account a photo that was obviously the “God is a Woman” singer with a sarcastic all caps caption asking who the public thinks was the new face of the fashion luxury company.
The post has been retweeted 18,000 times while Ariana’s first post as a Givenchy ambassador got retweeted 20,000 times. The people reacted to the tweet hysterically, which created a plethora of memes mocking the ironic post.
Muse and Siren of Today’s Pop Culture
On Instagram, the fashion house also posted a GIF of her and her hair’s silhouette that has been viewed more than a million times. According to Grande’s post in the same website, Givenchy chose her to be the brand’s new face for her influence in today’s pop culture, having 155 million followers in the photo-sharing website alone, becoming one of this generation’s most coveted muse and siren. The fashion house also sees the “No Tears Left to Cry” singer as an authentic representation of what they see in a Givenchy woman, which is someone that’s unapologetically good and bad at the same time.
Grande is equally proud of becoming part of the brand, which she has admired for a long time. She joins the rosters of style inspos like Bella Hadid, Rooney Mara, and Naomi Campbell. To highlight the accomplishment, the “Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” singer also captioned one of her first Givenchy-related posts with a hashtag #arivenchy on Instagram.
Quintessential Black Dress
In one of the teaser photos, the Grammy-winning singer is wearing a similar iconic black dress designed by Hubert de Givenchy that Audrey Hepburn wore in the first scene of the quintessential 1961 film. Grande gave a 2019 vibe on the famous black dress opting for a trendy pearl headband instead of the pearl necklace Holly Golightly was wearing in the Blake Edwards film.
Of course, Ari topped it all off with her distinguishable ponytail that any Arianator will surely recognize.
One of her promotional photos even lets us have a glimpse at the former Nickelodeon star’s nape tattoo, which reads “mille tendresse,” meaning a thousand tenderness in French. The line is from the novella written by Truman Capote, the basis of the Academy-award winning film that top-billed George Peppard alongside Hepburn.
After posting several pictures of her in the 2019 version of Hepburn’s cinematic outfit, Grande also posted a picture of the most popular black dress of all time, focusing closely on its distinguishable décolleté cut-out at the back. The photo has almost reached a million likes on Instagram.
