Former model Farida Khelfa has been the brand ambassador for French fashion house Schiaparelli for the past five years, however she announced today that she would be stepping down from her role immediately.
WWD reports that the French beauty (whose parents are Algerian) has quit to "focus her attentions on her personal artistic projects, notably her latest film."
Of her time with the brand, Khelfa, who visited Dubai last year to attend Fashion Forward, said, "I was honoured to be part of the rebirth of Schiaparelli's couture line, a new life and chapter to one of the most influential French couture houses."
She was brought on board as an ambassador in 2012 when the house relaunched its couture line and acted as a fervent cheerleader for the brand during that time. It is undoubtedly a loss for the house, however we're curious to see who they might ask to fill her fashionable shoes.
