ICYMI, Lee Jung Jae just became Gucci's newest global brand ambassador. That said, the fashion company's partnership with the Korean actor isn't particularly new. Lee previously attended the LACMA Art+Film Gala, which is sponsored by Gucci, in 2018 and 2019.
So, it makes sense that the announcement was made after the 48-year-old actor recently attended the 10th annual Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) Art+Film Gala decked out in-of course-head-to-toe Gucci.
Along with the announcement, Gucci released a series of images of the Squid Game actor wearing looks and accessories from the Gucci Aria collection. Shot by photographer Janghyun Hong, Lee sports a green velvet suit and a coat with feathered sleeves in another.
Gucci also named Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha's Shin Min Ah as a global brand ambassador with a similar series of images of the actress wearing key pieces from the same collection. The two join Gucci's roster of global brand ambassadors which includes Harry Styles, Jared Leto, and more.
Early in October, Jung Ho Yeon became a Louis Vuitton global ambassador. Before becoming an actress, she was a model who walked for the legendary French fashion house.
