Recently, French luxury house Louis Vuitton announced Bollywood actress, Deepika Padukone as the Maison’s first Indian House Ambassador for the brand. Padukone is the first Indian to be signed on as a House Ambassador by Louis Vuitton. Starring in the brand’s latest Dauphine leather goods campaign alongside Emma Stone and Zhou Dongyu, this is Padukone’s first leather goods campaign for the Maison.
Padukone’s association with the Maison started in 2020, when she was chosen as one of the muses for Nicolas Ghesquière’s novel-inspired Pre-Fall 2020 campaign. With the current campaign, the award-winning actress begins an exciting new chapter of her journey with Louis Vuitton.
With over 30 feature films to her credit, including Piku, Padmavaat and most recently Gehraiyaan, the actress has notably been named a member of the jury of this year’s 75th Cannes Film Festival. In 2018, Time Magazine named 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, she set up “The Live Love Laugh Foundation”, whose programmes and initiatives aim to destigmatise mental illness and raise awareness regarding the importance of mental health.
