BLACKPINK Lisa is named the global ambassador for Celine
It's official: BLACKPINK's rapper is the new face of the French fashion house. This makes Lisa the first global ambassador for Celine under Hedi Slimane's leadership. It's an exciting piece of news for the K-pop idol, but it doesn't come as a surprise. After all, aside from being one of the most influential fashion icons of today, she has attended countless of Celine's fashion shows in the past few years and has worn many of the luxury brand's pieces in her every day too. To celebrate this partnership, Celine released a bunch of black-and-white snaps featuring Lisa, photographed by Slimane himself.
