Last month, rumors were circulating that Angelina Jolie had been tapped to star in Louis Vuitton's fall campaign. This would be, by no means, that big of a surprise. Jolie has already lent her likeness to St. John campaign, and Louis Vuitton's ads are known for featuring a healthy mix of both world-class models (Christy Turlington, Lara Stone) and celebrities (Madonna) alike. But it seems that creative director Marc Jacobs opted out of using super-celeb Jolie and instead focused on putting some real stars in the ad: PUPPIES! The ads also feature a roster of much buzzed-about newcomers including Daphne Groeneveld and Fei Fei Sun luxuriously lounging in the backseat of a classic car holding smush-faced miniature canines, with soulful eyes that rival the models'. The advertisements were shot by Steven Meisel, styled by Karl Templer (what? Was the label's go-to stylist Katie Grand busy? Or allergic to pups?) and will hit newsstands in the August issues of fashion publications.
