    During the FIFA World Cup 2022, Padukone unveiled the trophy. She was the first Indian to be bestowed with this honour. She wrote, “From unveiling the FIFA World Cup Trophy to witnessing one of the greatest games in sporting history, I truly couldn’t have asked for more.

    Pottery Barn, an international interior design brand, signed Padukone as its brand ambassador. She has been working closely with the team in San Francisco to co-create a capsule collection that will be released in fall, 2023.

    In October 2022, The Business Of Fashion pointed out that Padukone was the first Indian to be the brand ambassador of Louis Vuitton which helped the brand create a huge media impact value (MIV) for itself. Seven of the brand’s top 10 images were of Padukone.
