Versace just received a new global brand ambassador, and it's none other than NingNing from K-pop group aespa.
On February 8, the Italian luxury brand announced the big news on Instagram. In a black and white photo, NingNing wears a leather tailored dress, fastened with buttons adorned with Versace's emblematic Medusa head.
Donatella Versace also from Versace shared the news with a photo of herself and NingNing of Versace Icon Dinner in Shanghai last October. In the photo, Donatella wears an all-white look with a bodycon dress, high-heeled boots and a shoulder bag while NingNing wears an all-black look with a bodycon sequin dress, strappy heels and a handbag. Alongside the images, Donatella shared a heartfelt message about NingNing's new role in the caption. She wrote, “Today, NingNing joins our Versace family as a global brand ambassador. She's not only a brilliantly talented star, she's also a wonderful person. She has a strong, confident vision, incredible energy and talent and she looks stunning wearing our clothes.
NingNing now joins an incredible list of brand ambassadors. Also based in Seoul, South Korea, Stray Kids' Hyunjin became a global ambassador for Versace in July 2023. Dua Lipa is also a long-time ambassador. She even made her runway debut during the Spring/Summer 2022 show during Milan Fashion Week and created a special collection with the brand last year.
For devoted fans of aespa, nicknamed MY, this news may not come as a major surprise. NingNing has been spotted several times at Versace. In addition to the Versace Icons dinner in Shanghai, NingNing also represented the brand on the red carpet at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.
