    Default Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards is new frontman for Louis Vuitton

    Stones guitarist is new frontman for Louis Vuitton - Yahoo! News

    (dam his face is as leathery as the bags he wants to promote)

    Rolling Stones guitarist and rock-and-roll bad boy Keith Richards is to become the new public face of Louis Vuitton, the French luxury fashion house said on Tuesday.
    For his first ever ad campaign, the 64-year-old Richards -- who has a rocky history of drug use -- is seen cradling his guitar on a hotel-room bed, the lights part obscured by skull-print black drapes.
    "Some journeys cannot be put into words. New York. 3 am. Blues in C," runs the slogal of the ad, shot by US photographer Annie Leibovitz and due to appear in the magazine press next month.
    Richards plans to donate the fee for the ad to the Climate Project, launched by Nobel-winning former US vice-president Al Gore and backed by Louis Vuitton.
    Famous faces stars to have represented Vuitton in the past include former Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev, French screen icon Catherine Deneuve, and US actresses Scarlett Johansson and Uma Thurman.

    I never would've guessed that Vuitton would've courted Richards.

    OK, first he starts talking bad about drugs, now he's shilling for some designer? That fall from teh coconut tree did more damage than anyone could have possibly imagined.

    Maybe he saw the light when he snorted his Dad's ashes?

    I think he's going to be born again any day now...and if that happens, we'll know the world is truly coming to an end.

    i know! it's just wrong. i love keef but someone should hit him on the head again. might set it right and he could go back to making rude remarks about people at inappropriate moments.

    I just threw up in my mouth. He is repulsive...a complete mess. I would not buy anything he was promoting.

    I'm not sure if I should laugh hysterically or be offended by this?

    He is certainly not a poster boy for fashion, and is has obviously been around the block a time or 70. But there is something really damn likeable about the guy so I say go for it Keith!
