Gorbachev is new face of Louis Vuitton

Thu Aug 2, 2:28 PM ET

PARIS – Move over Scarlett Johansson! Mikhail Gorbachev is the new face of Louis Vuitton.

The former Soviet leader is to appear in an ad campaign for the French luxury label, along with Steffi Graf and her husband, Andre Agassi, and Catherine Deneuve, said a statement Thursday from Vuitton, a division of the LVMH group, Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA.

Shot by photographer Annie Leibovitz, the ads focus on travel β€” a “core value” for the company that started in 1854 as a trunk-maker, the statement said.


  1. the ads are going to feature steffi and andre in bed together?

    well I guess I’d rather see that than the beckhams

  2. Is Gorbachev going to be biting the handle of the bag or wearing a bikini bottom and a cardigan like JLo?
