Givenchy Names The Actress Nanao Its New Japan Ambassador

Givenchy is delighted to welcome actress Nanao as its new Japan Ambassador, effective May 18th, 2023.

Since embarking on her career in 2009, Nanao has appeared in a wide range of dramas, films, and magazines. In particular, she has won numerous awards for her roles in TV drama series, and her singular presence has made her a closely watched talent.

“I am very honored to be appointed as Givenchy’s new Japan Ambassador. Givenchy is a timeless brand that elevates me as a woman and an actress. I am very much looking forward to collaborating with the House on my personal expressions of elegance, which I consider a very important, key theme whether I am in front of the camera or not,” said Nanao.

This marks the first time that Givenchy has named a Japanese actress as an ambassador. “I really admire Nanao for her professional versatility as well as her personal energy and style. She will make an ideal Japan Ambassador, and I look forward to working together,” said Givenchy Creative Director Matthew M. Williams.

For this announcement, photographer Leslie Kee, a close friend of Nanao, captured the actress’s elegance and strength in her first official portrait for Givenchy.
