Giorgio Armani Beauty Has a New Face and Her Name Is Cate

For many women, Cate Blanchett is the ultimate girl crush. She speaks Hindi, has a degree in economics, and would undoubtedly be the one to have your back in an argument when you desperately need reinforcement.

Turns out, we’re not the only ones who rate Cate. Announced this week, our girl is to be the latest (and greatest) global beauty ambassador for Giorgio Armani Beauty. Seeing as she is already the face of Giorgio Armani Sí and Sí Passione it seems only natural that she would add skincare and make-up to her glowing Armani portfolio.

Armani himself had more than a few good things to say about the actress, describing her as, “Luminous and sophisticated, her natural elegance and distinguished beauty are striking,” Leading up to this appointment Cate was serving as president of the jury at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival as well as making a plethora of highly anticipated upcoming films, including Ocean’s 8, so it’s no wonder that this multi-talented powerhouse was chosen for this new role.

The only thing that could make this news any better is the recent announcement that Giorgio Armani beauty will soon be making its way to New Zealand counters. Not only will Cate’s face be everywhere but you will also be able to purchase their amazing range of beauty and skin products. Find out the exciting details here.
