Mikhail Gorbachev, whose button-eyed charms have been previously featured on this blog, is one of the new faces 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.
Vuitton said it was making donations to former Vice President Al Gore's The Climate Project to fight global warming and Green Cross International, founded by Gorbachev to promote sustained development. The company didn't disclose the amount of the donations."
It seems only Gorby's picture was included in the press release. We've searched in vain for Deneuve, Graf and Agassi.
