Beauty brand Elizabeth Arden has named Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon the company’s storyteller-in-chief.
The following is an excerpt from an Elizabeth Arden press release:
In this multi-faceted role, Reese will help to shape the brand’s narrative, through its advertising campaigns and marketing programs, with a strong focus on Elizabeth Arden’s digital strategy and engagement … To bring her spirit to the forefront, the brand recently revamped its digital voice to channel its trailblazing founder through the eyes of ‘Liz Arden’, a present-day fictional character, who provides a first person lens into the brand today. Reese, who embodies many of Elizabeth Arden’s values and characteristics, is a natural fit to continue this narrative and curate the brand’s digital presence and communications.
Witherspoon commented in a statement: “One of the first things that drew me to the brand was its rich heritage and history of supporting women. As one of the first female entrepreneurs, Elizabeth Arden paved the way for women like me. It’s an honor to carry on her legacy and be part of such an iconic company that is committed to serving women.” Reese added, “I’m excited to work as a creative partner alongside the Elizabeth Arden team, producing content that celebrates the spirit of the brand, highlighting female-centric stories that illustrate women’s true life experiences which unite us all.”
