The Grown-ish star announced the news on Instagram by sharing a campaign video for the new venture. Yara reveals in the caption that she'll serve as the face of both women's fashion and cosmetics for the design house.

This isn't the first time the 21-year-old has collaborated with Dior, though. For International Women's Day back in March this year, Yara teamed up with the luxury brand's second instalment of Dior Stands with Women - a female-led education and empowerment initiative created by Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project. 

Yara, who has both Iranian and African American roots, appeared in portraits and videos where she discussed her personal journey with activism for the initiative.

Yara joins other prominent figures currently representing the fashion house such as fellow actresses Natalie Portman, Nina Dobrev and Jennifer Lawrence, plus models Cara Delevingne and Iris Law - daughter of actor Jude Law.

Fashion-wise, Yara has been doing quite well for herself lately because she also released two drops of her sports apparel line with athleisure giant, Adidas.
