Dakota Fanning Tapped as Clé de Peau Beauté’s Newest Global Ambassador

The actress, along with Diana Silvers and Ella Balinska, has been named as the new face of the brand.

To ring in its 40th anniversary, Clé de Peau Beauté has revealed its new faces for its brand, one of whom is none other than Dakota Fanning.

Fanning has been a household name in Hollywood for more than two decades, starring in movies such as “Uptown Girls,” “War of the Worlds,” “The Twilight Saga” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”

The beauty brand has also tapped actresses Ella Balinska and Diana Silvers, known for their roles in “Charlie’s Angels” and “Booksmart,” respectively, as global ambassadors.

“It’s an honor — not just to be asked to represent such a distinguished luxury brand, but also to take on this role with incredible women like Ella and Diana,” Fanning told WWD. “They are both such talented artists in such distinct ways, and that’s something about Clé de Peau Beauté that really speaks to me.”

“I’m excited to be able to represent a brand that I genuinely believe in. Their products are luxurious and of high quality,” Fanning continued. “Clé de Peau Beauté also puts a lot of energy and effort into giving back to young women around the world through their philanthropy.”

One of the brand’s hopes is that consumers will be able to resonate with this philosophy through their three new ambassadors.

“[These] three actors are truly representative of today’s women: empowered, confident, socially conscious and always working toward unlocking their own potential and the potential of those around them,” Mizuki Hashimoto, chief brand officer of Clé de Peau Beauté, said in a statement. “We’re so excited to have them as a part of the Clé de Peau Beauté family.”

The stars will make their first commercial appearance this month in a campaign photographed by Cliff Watts.

Some of Fanning’s go-to products from the luxury label include the Long-Lasting Hydrating Veil with SPF and its lipsticks, especially the Lipstick Matte in Splendorous 114 and Legend of Rouge 103. (The Splendorous 114 is not yet available to purchase in the U.S.)

The 27-year-old actress is filming “Ripley,” written and directed by Steve Zaillian, in which she plays Marge opposite Andrew Scott of “Fleabag” who will take on the role of Tom Ripley.

Additionally, Fanning plays Susan Ford in the anthology drama series “The First Lady,” alongside Michelle Pfeiffer, who plays Betty Ford. The Showtime series tells the story of former first ladies Ford, Michelle Obama and Eleanor Roosevelt.

“I’m excited about both projects and look forward to audiences getting to see them,” Fanning said.

Dakota Fanning Reveals What She’d Tell Her Younger Self and Reflects on First TV Role (Exclusive)




This year marks the 20th anniversary of Dakota Fanning’s first TV role. In 2000, the actress guest starred on an episode of NBC’s ER when she was 6 years old, and remembers it “like it was yesterday.”

“My character was named Delia. I was in a car accident, they found out that I had leukemia,” Fanning recalls to ET’s Keltie Knight of her character. “The props people gave me a whole, real medical kit at the end. Like, a neck brace, and they gave me all the all the props to take and play with. I literally thought it was Christmas Day.”

The 26-year-old starlet says she remembers “that feeling of fun and that feeling of excitement” while on set of the hospital drama. “I was very young to watch ER,but at the same time, it was a show that my family watched, so I was familiar with the story.”

As for what she’d tell her 6-year-old self, Fanning would stress “never forgetting to sort of soak in the fun of it all and the excitement and to not lose that kind of child.”

Decades later, Fanning has a thriving acting career and is now returning to star in the second season of TNT’s The Alienist alongside Daniel Brühl and Luke Evans. This time around, former police department secretary Sara Howard (Fanning) has opened up her own private detective agency and has reunited with Dr. Kreizler (Brühl), the alienist, and John Moore (Evans), who is now a New York Times reporter, to try to find the Spanish Consular’s kidnapped infant daughter.

Evans tells ET that the story will resonate with audiences because the struggles in 1890s New York City are quite similar to what society is facing now. “For everybody who watches it, you see the fight isn’t over, and the fight began a long time ago,” he explains. “But it’s very interesting to see it portrayed such a long time ago and to see that we not might have come as far as some other avenues.”

Brühl agrees, noting, “There’s so many things you can explore about New York, about the society back then, about the similarities between then and nowadays. It was a very fascinating journey.”

Fanning adds that it was fun for her to play such an independent woman in that time period.

“You see [Sara’s] detective agency sign and you see the young women that she’s kind of mentoring, but at the same time, it’s not all roses for her,” she shares. “You still see the inequality that she’s facing and not being taken seriously and being considered a lady detective.”

Fanning adds, “I think that’s something I also love about the show, is it is very progressive and it is very forward-thinking and modern, but at the same time, the reality of the time is still very present. It’s not just an easy road for everyone.”
