Uma Thurman Tapped as Parfums Givenchy Face

Parfums Givenchy said Uma Thurman is to be its newest face.

Parfums Givenchy has tapped Uma Thurman to be its newest face. She’ll front a women’s fragrance, still under wraps, which will be launched this September by the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned brand. Thurman — whose upcoming films include “Eloise in Paris” (in which she plays the nanny) and “Percy Jackson” (as Medusa) — joins Givenchy’s start-studded cast of pitchpeople, which includes Justin Timberlake, Marie Steiss and Liv Tyler. Thurman is a veteran of other LVMH-brand campaigns, including Tag Heuer and Louis Vuitton.

Meanwhile late last week, fellow Givenchy muse Tyler helped celebrate Nicolas Degennes’ 10-year anniversary as Parfums Givenchy’s creative director of makeup. The fete at Paris’ Palais de Tokyo museum drew a slew of international journalists. “Right now I’m obsessed with this nail polish,” said Tyler, flashing her nails awash with Givenchy’s Tangerine color that’s part of the brand’s spring-summer makeup collection. Among the actress’ possible upcoming projects is directing the film “The Romantics.”
