Mikhail S. Gorbachev, Fashion Icon?

So Mikhail Gorbachev, Annie Leibovitz, Louis Vuitton walk into a bar...Wait. Strike that. Wrong post. But you'll never guess who's the new face of Vuitton.

NYT: "Mr. Gorbachev’s appearance in a Pizza Hut commercial was generally greeted as a low point in his career. The Vuitton ad, however, is part of a campaign to emphasize the company’s heritage in luggage and travel accessories. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, the ads include other celebrities using Vuitton bags..." Oh, and Gorbachev would never be caught dead driving through the neighborhood pictured in the background. His face is classic. "Where the fuck are we?" At least we'll know what to take on our next vacation to Abkhazia. (Thanks Igor)
