Gorbachev is the new face of Vuitton?

Posted by gnn1 on Saturday, 4 August 2007

Um, okay. I mean, yeah, I understand dumping LiLo! Who wants a wacky klepto* representing your line! But he’s not the first person that comes to my mind. Although I have to admit, it’s definitely an interesting choice!

Shot by photographer Annie Liebovitz, the ads focus on travel – a “core value” for the company which started in 1854 as a trunk-maker, the statement said.

Gorbachev is featured in a car, a Vuitton bag at his side and the Berlin Wall in the background.

Graf and her husband Agassi are shown snuggling in a hotel room bed.

The campaign – which is to run alongside more traditional fashion ads that in past seasons have featured American screen siren Johansson – is to hit magazines in September, the statement said.

*(Klepto comment) “Louis Vuitton had sent over some samples for her to wear in the shoot,” said a snitch. “Lindsay, kept shoving the clothes into her bag, and a stylist’s assistant kept getting them out of the bag, only to have Lindsay keep trying to take them. She ended up walking off with a very expensive shirt and some other items – which screwed Louis Vuitton because they were set to go to Vogue, W and Harper’s Bazaar for other shoots. They were furious and kept trying to get their clothes back, but . . . Lindsay walked out with them and never returned calls.”
