Stone Signs With Dior

Sharon Stone's penchant for baring her skin is notorious.

NEW YORK — Sharon Stone’s penchant for baring her skin is notorious. So it seems only fitting that she’s signed on to be the new face of Dior skin care, rather than fronting a fragrance like so many of her celebrity cohorts.

The official announcement will be made in Paris on Oct. 4, where Stone is also slated to attend the showing of the Dior collection later that evening, said Dior executives. Stone will be the face of the company’s Capture brand.

Print ads will launch sometime next spring, timed to coincide with the release of the actress’ next starring role in “Basic Instinct 2.”
