Cartier names Elle Fanning as its new Global Ambassador


French luxury Jeweler Cartier has appointed award-winning actress Elle Fanning as their newest Global Ambassador and the face of the Grain de Cafe collection.

The Grain de Cafe was originally unveiled in 1938 by iconic Creative Director Jeanne Toussaint. The coffee bean-inspired collection gained prominence globally during the ’50s, after it was worn by Audrey Hepburn and the newly crowned Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco.

The embodiment of modern glamour, Fanning debuted her partnership with the Maison in New York City at the 2023 Met Gala exhibition Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty. She also stars in a campaign inspired by the personality and talent of Kelly and her intrinsic links to both the French Riviera and the golden age of Hollywood.

‘I am so proud to become Cartier’s Global Ambassador. The Grain de Cafe collection embodies so much of what makes Cartier’s style and savoir-faire unique; from exquisite gold work to the precious transformation of an everyday object. It is an honor to become the face of a creation that brings together elegance, glamour and radiant femininity,’ Fanning said in a press release.

‘To embody the beauty, heritage and sense of sunlight captured within the Grain de Cafe collection, we selected Elle Fanning for her talent, determination and range, which have allowed her to take on a variety of roles in the world of cinema. As our new Global Ambassador, she brings a luminous on-screen presence to the Grain de Cafe collection and campaign that recalls its most famous wearer, Princess Grace of Monaco,’ Arnaud Carrez, Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer, said.

Fanning currently stars as Catherine the Great in the Hulu series ‘The Great’ for which she earned a 2022 Primetime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series. She will be seen this year in the historic film The Nightingale, directed by Melanie Laurent, another Friend of the Maison.
