French luxury giant Dior has appointed Kim Ji-soo, better known to Blackpink fans mononymously as Jisoo, its new global ambassador for both fashion and beauty, the brand has announced on its social media channels.

As part of the announcement, Dior said Jisoo was a key inspiration for designer Maria Grazia Chiuri’s autumn-winter collection, which is due to be shown online today.

European luxury brands have been increasingly turned to Asian stars for ambassador roles, with K-pop idols proving popular with brands from Givenchy to Gucci.

With 37 million Instagram followers, as well as an existing role working with Dior Beauty, Dior is obviously hoping the incredibly popular singer and actress will be useful in amplifying its online fashion activities in an era in which brands are forced to compete fiercely for social media attention and traction for online fashion shows.
