Launchmetrics Content Team

Previously in our #KnowYourMIV series, we tracked the data behind Diipa Khosla’s collaboration with Mac Cosmetics. This month, we are focusing on Mega-Influencer, Jessica Kahawaty, and the MIV® she generated for Dior on her recent campaign trip to Shanghai.

Kahawaty is not your average influencer by any means. She is an international model, humanitarian and law graduate, and has featured on TEDx panels about fashion and online activism, as well as held partnerships with some of the fashion, luxury and cosmetics’ worlds’ biggest brands. She has over 770K followers on her Instagram channel alone and racked up a total MIV of $1.8M in the space of less than a month when we tracked her data.  

Below, you’ll discover the media impact generated by Jessica for her collaboration with Dior between 6 March to 4 April, using our proprietary Media Impact Value™ algorithm (MIV®), which you can read more about here.
