Joy Bryant – Missoni’s Unofficial Brand Ambassador


We all have a brand we favour. If I could afford it, mine would be Giambattista Valli and Lanvin.

Charlize Theron’s is Dior, Renee Zellweger’s is Carolina Herrera and Victoria Beckham’s is her own collection.

These I would term ‘official brand ambassador’s’.


Joy Bryant loves Missoni. There’s hardly an event she attends – and there are many – in which she doesn’t wear Missoni.

When I met Joy at the Marchesa Fall 2009 presentation, I asked her why she had a particular love for Missoni.

Is she due to be announced as the face of the brand?

She told me it’s simply because the clothes fit her in terms of her style, and she feels very comfortable when she wears their pieces, and that’s most important for her.

I then went onto inform her that several of us hate her for wearing no make-up on the red carpet, and still looked outstanding beautiful. She started laughing. I guess she sensed I was joking.

I wasn’t. It’s just not fair.

    YAY i was really looking forward to this post..since i love Missoni and Joy Bryant so much, not necceserely together though ^^ I’ve always thought that her smile truly reflects through the clothes she wears (does that make any sense?! ^^) because they both are so bright, joyful and inspire happyness. Then, the first two outifts you posted are two of my favourite of hers. And i agree, it’s just not fair, she’s so perfect even without any make up!

    Hey FC,

    I think you missed one of Joy’s best Missoni looks. She was wearing a beautiful pink floor-length Missoni number recently at the Women’s World Awards in Vienna (see here). This is my favorite Joy/Missoni combo yet. :)

    And yes, how can one look so radiant without makeup? Life’s just not fair.

    Hey Profeshionelle, I could have posted about 10 different Missoni looks, but I did not want to put too many pictures on the post.

    The picture of Joy in the coat is from the same night.

    Did she really wear Missoni that much? Had no clue :)

    And oh yes, now I see. I should’ve paid more attention the first time.

    Maybe Joy is just my kind of girl. ;) I think I look better without makeup, so I very rarely bother putting it on. Or maybe I’m just lazy. LOL
