Charles Leclerc is the new face of the Giorgio Armani Made to Measure spring 2020 ads. This marks the first time the 22-year-old Monégasque racing driver, currently competing for the Ferrari stable, fronts a fashion campaign.
“Charles Leclerc is a very promising racing driver. He has achieved considerable success despite his young age, and this is an indication of his will and determination, as well as his obvious talent. He is fresh-faced and has an energetic physical presence that my Made to Measure collection enhances and matches well,” Armani said.
Launched in 2006, the Made to Measure service is available at the Giorgio Armani stores globally.
“Extremely happy to announce that I am now a brand ambassador of Giorgio Armani and its Made to Measure Line. Fashion together with music and motorsport have always been my passions, and to be representing such an iconic brand from now on is a huge honor,” the driver wrote in his latest post on his Instagram account, along with four images from the campaign. Leclerc boasts three million Instagram followers.
Born in 1997 in Monaco, Leclerc won the GP3 Series championship in 2016 and the FIA Formula 2 Championship in 2017. Last year, he joined Scuderia Ferrari and became the second-youngest driver to qualify in pole position in Formula One at the Bahrain Grand Prix. He also took his first career win in Belgium last September, followed by winning his first Italian Grand Prix as a Ferrari driver the following week, which crowned him as a fan favorite in Italy and goosed his audience on Instagram to 3 million followers.
