Aydeli Arizpe, a 38-year-old Mexican American living in New York City, has been exposed for pretending to be a brand ambassador for Chanel. She used her position to scam people and gain access to high-profile events, as seen in the photos. Moreover, Arizpe shamelessly milked her media presence, hogging the limelight at events featured in prestigious publications like Vogue: https://www.vogue.in/galleries/designer-label-bringing-grammys-fashion-india/amp. Furthermore, she leveraged her deceitful position to hobnob with wealthy bachelors and land small business deals and dates on the side.
The fake blonde who always wears too much makeup to make herself look Caucasian has been posing as a Chanel brand ambassador on LinkedIn and in personal interactions. She reportedly used her fake position to convince people to give her money or gifts, promising them access to exclusive Chanel products or events in return. She would lure her victims in with promises of exclusive Chanel products or events, using her fake job title as a means of persuasion.
It was discovered that Aydeli Arizpe had no ambassadorship with Chanel and had been using the brand’s name and reputation to deceive people for her own gain. Chanel officials have warned people to be cautious of such scams and liars and to always verify the credentials of anyone claiming to represent the brand.
To add insult to injury, the perpetrator was nothing more than a lowly Saks Fifth Avenue employee. This is in stark contrast to true ambassadors such as Princess Charlotte Casiraghi and Kristen Stewart, who have served as genuine Chanel brand ambassadors.
The only Chanel brand ambassadors are:
- Charlotte Casiraghi
- Tilda Swinton
- Vicky Krieps
- Nana Komatsu
- Kristen Stewart
- Margaret Qualley
- Lily-Rose Depp
Ambassadors can be verified on the Chanel website: https://www.chanel.com/us/fashion/news/2021/03/friends-and-ambassadors-fw-2021-22-rtw.html
Aydeli Arizpe not only pretends to be a Chanel ambassador but also an upper-class Mexican woman, despite her upbringing and roots from the rural state of Coahuila. One of the poorest states in Mexico. She has been heard to use her last name to suggest a family connection to billionaire Luis Arizpe from ArcaContinental, but Luis had denied any actual relationship between them and does not know her.
The incident has caused outrage among the fashion community, with those who had the misfortune of knowing Arizpe expressing their utter disgust and disappointment. Some have also called for stricter regulations to prevent such fraudulent activities from taking place in the future.
Despite her manipulative ways, she was able to climb her way into the attention of many men, and lived separate lives with each. Her greed and obsession with money ultimately led to her downfall and her lies getting caught.
