To become global brand ambassador is truly a dream come true for me.”

“Wow this is actually crazy. Honored to be @louisvuitton newest House Ambassador,” she wrote. “Funny story: I first bought my mom a LV bag when I was 16 as a birthday present and it’s kinda been a tradition since. Do I call this a full circle moment? Yes ?”

“Naomi is an exceptional woman who represents her generation and is also a role model for everyone,” he said in the release. “Her career and convictions are inspiring. I am in awe of Naomi, she stays true to herself and doesn’t compromise on her values.”
