EXCLUSIVE: Chiara Ferragni Becomes Hublot’s Global Ambassador

MAKE IT HAPPEN: Chiara Ferragni is being named today as the global brand ambassador for Swiss watchmaker Hublot.
She joins a star-studded roster that includes football legend Pelé, tennis champion Novak Djokovic, soccer star Kylian Mbappé and track and field champions Dina Asher-Smith and Usain Bolt, as well as France’s DJ Snake, who designed the latest limited edition of the watch firm’s Big Bang timepiece.
Described by Hublot as a “natural-born winner” who “shines her aura over everything she loves and chooses,” Ferragni will also be the global face of the brand’s women-oriented watches, effective immediately.
The digital entrepreneur was previously seen sporting the limited-edition Big Bang Millennial Pink unisex watch, designed by Garage Italia founder Lapo Elkann, which opened the door to a conversation with the brand.
“A fusion of passion and determination has shaped who I am, across all my roles, and forged the businesswoman I have become. This same fusion has also made Hublot the company it is today,” the digital entrepreneur said in a statement announcing her new role, expressing her appreciation for Hublot’s recognition of individual skills and pursuit of “dreams of innovation while respecting traditions.”
