Estée Lauder has named model Karlie Kloss as its latest global brand ambassador.

The 25-year-old’s debut campaign will roll out in July across digital, social, TV, in-store and print.

Kloss joins models Carolyn Murphy, Fei Fei Sun, Gabriella Wilde, Hilary Rhoda, Joan Smalls and Kendall Jenner as ambassadors for the brand, as well as actress Yang Mi and dancer Misty Copeland.

“It is a dream come true to join the Estée Lauder family," said Kloss, who has also been a spokesperson for L'Oréal Paris since 2014 and previously starred in beauty campaigns for Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera, Dior, Bulgari, Chanel and Juicy Couture.

"I am so inspired by the brand's legacy and values — from the entrepreneurial spirit of Estée herself to the company's unparalleled commitment to creating best in class products for women around the world. I could not be more proud and honoured to be part of such an iconic brand."
