Madonna might be the face of Louis Vuitton’s spring 2009 campaign, Style.com reports. Rumor has it the ads have already been shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. And this qualifies as news we never saw coming. Louis Vuitton and Madge aren’t like Chanel and Madge, Christian Dior and Madge, or even Dolce & Gabbana and Madge. She regularly romps around in Chanel (who could forget her famous gun-heel pumps?), she’s worn her Dior Blue Angel pumps repeatedly, and Dolce & Gabbana sponsored the premiere of her directorial debut in New York. But Louis Vuitton designer Marc Jacobs also attended that premiere and told us he was “close to a very good friend” of Madonna’s. Later we saw them getting chummy in a booth, so maybe such a pairing was inevitable? However it came about, it’s a fine distraction from a giant divorce. We wonder if she’ll have to give up all her favorite non-Louis shoes now.
