May 10, 2022: In a statement that defines the importance of the Indian market for Louis Vuitton, the French luxury brand has appointed Deepika Padukone as its latest House Ambassador. The Indian actress, producer, philanthropist, and entrepreneur stars in her first leather goods campaign for the Maison.
With over 30 feature films to her credit, the actress has notably been named a member of the jury of this year’s 75th Cannes Film Festival. In 2018, Time Magazine named Ms. Padukone as one of their “100 Most Influential People”. She was also recently awarded the TIME 100 Impact Award for her contribution to the Field of film and Entertainment.
In 2015, Ms. Padukone set up “The Live Love Laugh Foundation” which aims to de-stigmatise mental illness and raise awareness regarding mental health.
Ms. Padukone is the first Indian to be signed as a House Ambassador by Louis Vuitton. She has previously made an appearance in Nicolas Ghesquière’s novel-inspired Pre-Fall 2020 campaign.
