Rising French actor Raphaël Personnaz has been tapped to appear in Louis Vuitton’s next campaign, which will be shot next month. Personnaz, who sat front row at the house’s show Thursday, is currently filming “Romy” about the actress Romy Schneider, where he plays the young Alain Delon. “Nobody can be compared to his beauty,” he said of the iconic actor, adding he took up boxing to slim down for the role. Bradley Cooper, meanwhile, said watching the Valentino movie made him want to join the fashion circus. “I told my agent, ‘I want to do anything to do with fashion,’” he said. “I’m amazed how fast it is, in two minutes it’s over,” he added of the runway experience. Next up, Cooper will take on the role of Face in the “A-Team” movie. “I was more of a Murdock fan — because he got to wear that cool leather jacket,” he said. Backstage after the show, The Black Eyed Peas lost no time picking items from the runway for their futuristic upcoming tour, “3008.” “They will definitely be seen from the stage,” said Will.i.am as he eyed an array of sparkling shoes, fluorescent sneakers and jackets.
Fergie is still finalizing her outfits. “The theme is post-apocalyptic, kind of internationally futuristic so it will be a fusion of things, like the music,” she said adding that next up the band head to the U.K.’s Glastonbury Festival. “It’s going to be muddy.” Crooner Keziah Jones said he’s organizing a festival of his own featuring African artists in Lagos, Nigeria, next year. Fencing champion Jason Rogers, meanwhile, didn’t walk as planned for Vuitton. “I have really strong legs, the clothes are not built for fencers. There’s a niche,” he declared.
