Raphaël Quenard, the French actor whose star is rising fast, was recently named the new brand ambassador for Dior Men.
His standout performance in “Chien de la casse” (Junkyard Dog) earned him a nomination for Best Newcomer at the Césars, a prestigious award often referred to as France’s answer to the Oscars. His international presence has also been bolstered by his role in “Gold Brick,” a Netflix film that showcases his range and depth as an actor.
Known for his dynamic screen presence and unique, unusual nasal qualities, this multifaceted talent initially pursued a career far from the spotlight. With a background in chemistry and a brief stint as a parliamentary assistant, Quenard’s pivot to acting is a testament to his versatility and determination. His relentless pursuit of roles, often approaching directors at screenings and industry events, demonstrates a commendable dedication to his craft.
Dior’s decision to bring Quenard on board is a strategic and inspired move. The brand, known for its timeless elegance and modern sensibility, finds in Quenard a perfect representative. Dior’s statement highlights this synergy, noting that he embodies the “spirit and uniqueness” of the house’s appeal, which is continually reinvented by artistic director Kim Jones. This collaboration is expected to bring a fresh, bold edge to Dior Men, further cementing the brand’s status in the world of luxury fashion.
Quenard joins a distinguished group of Dior Men ambassadors, including actor Robert Pattinson, K-pop icon Jimin of BTS, football star Kilian Mbappé and Monaco businessman Pierre Casiraghi, the grandson of Grace Kelly. His unique style and charismatic energy are sure to contribute significantly to Dior‘s ongoing story in men’s fashion, appealing to a diverse and discerning audience.
