Gorbachev is the new Face of Louis Vutton

Annie Leibowitz has been hauled in by Vogue to make ex President Gorbachev the new Face of Louis Vuitton this Winter - pictured here against the Berlin Wall with a chunky duffel bag.

On the other hand Scarlett Johanssen might just encourage you to look a little close at what is on offer...

Vuitton has said it was making donations to former Vice President Al Gore’s The Climate Project to fight global warming and Geneva based Green Cross International, founded by Gorbachev to promote sustained development.... whose Mission Statement is ...."We desperately need to recognize that we are the guests not the masters of nature and adopt a new paradigm for development, based on the costs and benefits to all people, and bound by the limits of nature herself rather than the limits of technology and consumerism."...

Which evidently includes promoting obscenely expensive luggage.
