Gemma Chan lands Kurt Geiger campaign


Gemma Chan has been tapped to star in Kurt Geiger’s new campaign.

The British actress has been catapulted to fame in recent years, after landing roles in movies such as Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Crazy Rich Asians, Mary Queen of Scots, and Captain Marvel.

Gemma is also building up a reputation as one to watch on the red carpet and has now been selected as the face of U.K. footwear and accessories retailer Kurt Geiger’s Characterful Style spring/summer 2019 marketing campaign.

“Spring sprang sprung @kurtgeiger SS19 Campaign. Thank you @eriktorstensson,” she captioned a snap from the imagery showing her posing in a bright green dress and neon lime green shoes.
Shot by photographer Erik Torstensson, the images also picture Gemma showcasing other pieces in the collection, including the neon Battersea slingbacks, the Kensington chain wallet, and the Fabric Mini Kensington shoulder bag.

Regarding the line, the star explained that Geiger’s pieces fit well with her eclectic sense of style.
“(I describe my look) as laid-back day to day, but dramatic and experimental when the occasion calls for it,” the 36-year-old shared, adding that she is very selective about her shoes. “Heels for the red carpet but otherwise mostly flats. I like to be comfortable!”

In addition, Gemma named “timelessly elegant” Audrey Hepburn as her style icon, and picked her favourite fashion memory to date.

“I was lucky enough to wear an amazing Valentino gown for the 2019 Golden Globes – it had shorts, a train, and pockets!” she smiled.

Other stars cast in Kurt Geiger’s latest campaign include fashion blogger Susie Lau, presenter Maya Jama, lyricist Not3s and journalist Julia Hobbs. The collection is now available to purchase in-store and online.
