Vanessa Kirby has been announced as Cartier’s latest ambassador. The actress and philanthropist has been poised as the new face of jewelry, watchmaking and fragrances, starting in early 2023 with the reveal of an incredible new La Panthère perfume campaign (more on this next year). 

Known for her roles in The Crown, Pieces of a Woman and Mission Impossible, Kirby has been described by Variety as the “outstanding stage actress of her generation, capable of the most unexpected choices.” She’s been nominated for an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, an Emmy and three Screen Actors Guild Awards, as well as winning a BAFTA.

“It is such an honour to become an ambassador and embody the wild feminine spirit behind the iconic scent of La Panthère. To be aligned with a house that has a real appreciation for — and commitment to — philanthropy, women’s empowerment, conservation and arts and culture, powered by the extraordinary team at Cartier, is truly inspiring. They have become a family to me and I am honoured to be on this journey with them” — Vanessa Kirby said via a press release.

The Panthère fragrance collection draws on classic Cartier house codes. A symbol of desire, fascination power and freedom, Kirby will continue this messaging in her new role. La Panthère specifically combines soft gardenia with velvety musk, affording a delicate floral that’s sophisticated and undeniably feminine.
