THE EPITOME of being a young woman can be traced through every fragrant note of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume. So who better to present as the latest face of this stalwart companion than 20-year-old Canadian actress, Whitney Peak.
Already finding herself star in the 22 Handbag campaign as one of its muses and being honoured with the title of brand ambassador, this next move makes her the first black face of a Chanel scent, a move that adds the word trailblazer to her already extensive repertoire.
“Coco Chanel is that girl. She is unconventional.”
Best known for her role as Zoya in the reboot of Gossip Girl and finding herself front-and-centre in last year’s Hocus Pocus 2, she is only at the start of what looks to be an affluent career. Embodying the traits of Coco Mademoiselle, like confidence and curiosity, she is the incarnation of elegantly pursuing your ambitions in today’s modern world.
Reflecting on the perfume and her own lifestyle, Whitney can see herself in it, “Yes, in my work I am all about structure, but outside of that, even how I choose to dress day to day, I like the unexpected. Which is why I love Coco Mademoiselle. It doesn’t leave too much…”
“I love to be unpredictable,” and though Whitney prides herself on having you guess her next move, what we can bet on is that she will be wearing Coco Mademoiselle when doing it.
