French luxury label Dior has some exciting news to share in the region today. The much-loved brand has officially signed its very first ambassador from the Middle East, and the newest member of the Dior family is none other than Aseel Omran. The Saudi singer and actor, who is best known for her music, and her appearances in Gulf Stars and Heya wa Huwa, also shared the news with her 6 million followers on her official Instagram page with a first look. “I’m proud to share with you a partnership that is dear to my heart,” she wrote. “Today I’m officially the first @dior ambassador in the Middle East and I cannot begin to express my excitement level, Dior is a brand I was genuinely a big fan of growing up. I can’t wait to show you what the rest of the year holds.” Check out her post below.
With this move, Aseel Omran joins the likes of Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, Carla Bruni, Charlize Theron, Sharon Stone, and Monica Bellucci, all of whom have a special relationship with Dior.
In an official note, Dior also shared that “Aseel will be working closely with the brand across both womenswear and fine jewelry.” The exciting news comes just days after another favorite from the region—Lebanese-born, Dubai-based mother-of-three Karen Wazen—celebrated becoming the very first Middle Eastern to be signed on as an ambassador for Roberto Cavalli fragrances, appearing in the Italian fashion house’s latest campaign.
