Peak follows in the footsteps of supermodel Kate Moss and actress Keira Knightley, both of whom have previously served as ambassadors for the Coco Mademoiselle fragrance.
The news comes after a number of beauty ambassador appointments from various luxury brands, including Hunter Schafer for Mugler and Sydney Sweeney for Armani Beauty - both known for their roles in drama series Euphoria.
