We listed down three things you need to know about Coco Mademoiselle’s new face, Whitney Peak
The story behind every face of Coco Mademoiselle is the journey of one embracing their womanhood. They pick out a fresh face that exudes the elegance the brand embodies with a twist of the generation’s distinct characteristics. Kate Moss first took the reins, which was then followed by Keira Knightley—both were chosen in their early 20s and continued on until they reached their late 30s. To move forward with the tradition, Chanel has chosen another young actress to take the spot of Pirates of the Caribbean star.
Introducing Whitney Peak, the 20 year-old Ugandan-Canadian actress whose career is on a continuous rise in both film and television, and she now goes beyond her work as she ventures into the world of beauty and fashion.
A versatile actress
At the young age of 20, Whitney Peak already has an impressive line of projects that have quite the range. She starred in the reboot of HBO’s Gossip Girl and Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,as well as Hocus Pocus 2. This definitely goes to show that Whitney isn’t the type to back down from a challenge that different genres may bring.
Her role as Zoya Loft in the Gossip Girl reboot displays a new angle on the lifestyle of her race. Where films and series would often portray the harshness they would receive, Whitney views her role as a balance to how they are represented. For the actress, her life as Zoya is a glimpse of the perfect escapism where a Black person is just existing while also tackling issues they continue to face to this day.
Into the world of beauty
Now, her career has expanded into the world of beauty as Chanel introduced her as the new face of Coco Mademoiselle. And though the Mademoiselle woman is constantly evolving, they always go back to its very core: a woman that perseveres to reach her destiny and unapologetically embraces her true identity. And since Whitney is only at the young age of 20, we have yet to see her fully bloom into the woman she’s meant to be.
Whitney carries herself with such elegance yet never too ashamed to rebel against the norms. It’s a sentiment that we see on Whitney and the Coco Mademoiselle line of fragrances. The notes of citrus, florals, and wood make a blend of dainty and refined—the ideal marriage of sweetness and sophistication.
Starting with its signature fragrance, Coco Mademoiselle Eau De Parfum is for the lively at heart with its mix of citrus fruits, such as the patchouli and orange essence. Meanwhile, the Coco Mademoiselle Eau De Parfum Intense amplifies the citrus and earthy notes of the fragrance, creating a more alluring aroma.
A younger take on the fragrance is their Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée because of its floral undertones. It’s a softer interpretation for those who are looking for a light introduction to Coco Mademoiselle.
Lastly, Coco Mademoiselle expands their line to body and hair care with their Fresh Hair Mist and Body Oil. While the Fresh Hair Mist serves to elevate you everywhere you go because of its compact size, the Body Oil will leave your skin hydrated with its new silky texture and an enticing scent of the Coco Mademoiselle.
