Last year, Corberó was named the face of BVLGARI’s new Fiorever jewelry line, and has been the brand’s ambassador ever since. According to the luxury label, the actress’ image and style fell right in line with the new collection’s la dolce vita (“the good life” in Italian) lifestyle. “That they should have asked me to become the new ambassador is like a dream, a wish come true. It is an immense honour for me to become part of this family,” she expressed in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar Singapore upon accepting the new job.

2. She considers herself a feminist.

In a previous interview with mujerhoyshe mentioned that she calls herself a feminist. ”The grand battle [for women] is that maybe we need things to balance out a bit more so it can be equal,” she explained. “That’s how I feel. Sometimes I hear people say ‘It’s that everyone’s going overboard with feminism’ and I think it’s necessary because it’s been so unequal for such a long time that it’s necessary we go overboard a bit.” Her character Tokio is just that, along with her partner in crime Nairobi.

3. She’s a style icon.
