Thai actress and model Davika Hoorne is no stranger to the luminous glare of the limelight, but this time, the star is sparkling in a whole new arena. With grace and aplomb, Hoorne has been unveiled as the latest brand ambassador for the iconic house of Gucci and Gucci Beauty, joining a diverse and eclectic roster of global ambassadors. This announcement follows closely on the heels of Gucci naming Korean actress Park Gyu-young as another ambassador from Asia.
The celebrated actress and fashion icon isn’t just a familiar face in the Thai entertainment industry; her reputation precedes her on the global stage as well. With an acting career peppered with hit movies and TV shows, Hoorne’s star power is undeniable. Now, as she steps into this prestigious role, she marks the first Thai personality to attain such an honor, establishing her foothold in the global fashion landscape.
“Gucci is a globally renowned fashion brand that seamlessly blends innovative creativity with the beauty of fashion in a unique and captivating manner,” Hoorne expressed. ”Just as Gucci allows individuals to express their true selves with freedom and clarity, I feel incredibly honored and delighted to collaborate with Gucci as a brand ambassador for both Gucci and Gucci Beauty. It is a source of immense pride and honor in my professional journey.”
Hoorne isn’t new to the glamour and allure associated with Gucci. She has been a familiar face at their events, and the Italian luxury attire is her choice for numerous public appearances and esteemed magazine cover features, including Vogue Thailand, Harper’s Bazaar, and L’Officiel Thailand.
Her journey to this monumental appointment isn’t without notable milestones. Hoorne made her acting debut in the TV series “Ngao Kammathep” and rose to international acclaim with the 2015 Thai romantic movie “Heart Attack,” by indie director Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit, earning her accolades and adoration in equal measure. TV hits like “My Ambulance” and “Astrophile” further cemented her status as a formidable talent, culminating in the Best Global Teleplay Leading Actress award at the 36th Global Arts and Television Huading Awards.
Hoorne’s prominence in the fashion sphere is marked by numerous endorsements and prominent roles. In 2017, she illuminated the runway, modeling for Michael Kors at New York Fashion Week. A year later, Vogue labeled her the “most captivating newcomer” of Milan Fashion Week 2018. This title was not just for her remarkable appearance in Dolce & Gabbana’s showcase, but also for her array of street style ensembles that she skillfully documented for her vast audience on Instagram. Now, with Gucci’s emblematic insignia gracing her, Hoorne is poised to elevate her iconic status.
As Gucci’s ambassador, Hoorne aligns with renowned South Korean stars like Park Gyu-young of K-drama fame, Hanni from NewJeans, “Squid Game” actor Lee Jung-jae, and celebrated singer-actress Lee Ji-eun, known popularly as IU. She’s part of a group, with global icons like Italy’s tennis sensation Jannik Sinner, acclaimed Chinese actress Ni Ni, multifaceted talent Xiao Zhan, and Bollywood star Alia Bhatt. Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny also share this prestigious title.
Hoorne holds the distinctive honor of being the sole active ambassador representing Gucci Beauty, a position previously held by notable personalities like A$AP Rocky, Julia Garner, and Elliot Page, who championed the Gucci Guilty fragrance, and pop sensation Miley Cyrus for the Gucci Flora scent.
