Sean Connery the New Face of Louis Vuitton

Sean Connery stars in a new Louis Vuitton ad, photographed by Annie Leibovitz on a beach near his home in the Bahamas, the iconic actor is propped on a wooden dock next to a waterproof version of Vuitton’s Keepall bag.

“I wish I looked like that at 78 years old,” Antoine Arnault, Vuitton’s director of communications said. “He’s sexier than ever.”

The good news is that we get to see Connery’s Vuitton ads very soon, in October, just in time for this Fall’s 007 feature, The Quantum of Solace. Previous famous candidates include Mikhail Gorbachev, Keith Richards, and more recently Francis Ford Coppola and his daughter Sofia.
