Taylor for Armani, Kellan for Calvin
Looks like our Twilight stars are branching out into the fashion world.
First, reports surfaced that Taylor Lautner could be the next face of Giorgio Armani. Who else did a campaign for Armani? David Beckham.
Taylor Lautner is poised to become the next face of Giorgio Armani. According to a fashion insider, the Italian designer is trying to sign the Twilight hunk for a new ad campaign for fragrances, as well as for his more affordable line of clothing, A/X Armani Exchange. “Giorgio has offered Taylor a deal rumored to be worth millions for the ads,” the insider reveals. And although a rep for Taylor denies the story, the insider adds, “Taylor is flattered and really considering it.” If he does take the job, he’ll have some big briefs to fill. Soccer star David Beckham sent huge crowds into hysterics when he turned up at Selfridges & Co. in London to unveil his underwear ad. Taylor completely bulked up to play the werewolf Jacob in New Moon. “I went from a men’s small to a men’s large,” he says.
Still breathing? Good.
Second, Kellan Lutz will soon grace ads for Calvin Klein! Wooh!! Then again, Kellan's no stranger to the modelling world. He started his modelling career for Abercrombie & Fitch at the age of 13!
Fox411.com has learned exclusively that "New Moon" hunk, Kellan Lutz has been signed to a modeling contract with the fashion giant, and will be featured in a very familiar ad campaign. "He’s going to be their new Mark Wahlberg," the insider told Fox411.com. "Kellan has been signed to Calvin Klein for a huge campaign that will feature him in his skivvies all over billboards and in magazines." That’s right, 17 years later after his ripped abs ad campaign, Marky Mark finally has a worthy stomach-muscled successor. “The executives have a plan to model the ads very similarly after the famous Mark Wahlberg campaign in the 90’s," the source said. "They want to recreate the look of the hugely successful ads, and who is better than Kellan Lutz to fill out those little underwear?” The 1992 campaign was shot by the late legendary photographer Herb Ritts. No word yet on which lucky snapper will get close to Lutz’s vampire abs of steel. Reps at Calvin Klein were not immediately available for comment.
