Prestigious French jewellery house CARTIER has announced the talented and gorgeous Elle Fanning as the brand’s latest global ambassador. She is also the new face of their Grain de Café collection.

Elle Fanning has celebrated the beginning of this collaboration with Cartier by wearing pieces from the Grain de Café collection to the Metropolitan Museum of Art: Met Gala in New York City, embodying the elegance and glamour synonymous with the collection.

The Grain de Café collection was launched back in 1938, and designed by Jeanne Touissant. It rose to fame in the 1950s when actresses Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly started wearing it. This collection was reintroduced to the Cartier fold in 2022 with a mix of pieces meant to be worn as part of a woman’s everyday wardrobe, noting that the Grain de Café collection is all about the “freedom to surpass literal creative execution and develop a multi-sensory architecture.”

Thus, Elle Fanning becomes the perfect and natural fit for the latest collection inspired by Grace Kelly and her links to the French Riviera and the golden age of Hollywood.

Beyond the jewellery, Fanning embodied old Hollywood glamour. Wearing Vivienne Westwood in homage to Karl Lagerfeld’s famous ‘little black jacket’, layered over a white lace gown and accessorised with a daisy flower crown.

Elle Fanning expressed her delight about this collaboration stating, “I am so proud to become Cartier’s global ambassador. The Grain de Café 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 honour to become the face of a creation that brings together elegance, glamour, and radiant femininity.” – Elle Fanning.

According to the brand, Elle Fanning is the perfect woman to front the Grain de Café campaign as she perfectly embodies a pure and graphic style that echoes the Maison’s culture of design, beauty, and heritage, stating, “To embody the beauty, heritage and sense of sunlight captured within the Grain de Café 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 Café collection and campaign that recalls its most famous wearer, Princess Grace of Monaco.” – Arnaud Carrez, Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer at Cartier.
