Tobey Maguire tapped to be the new face of Prada
In a rather suprising move Prada have tapped Tobey Maguire to be the face of their Autumn/Winter 2011-12 menswear campaign. Surprising because the actor doesn't quite seem like designer/Prada material. Having said that he seems to carry off the campaign quite well, with his boyish good looks helping him across the line, Maguire was helped by David Sims who shot the ads. Of course every little bit of publicity helps with Maguire set to play Nick Carraway in Baz Luhrmann's upcoming film remake of The Great Gatsby.
"A great supporter of the arts, Miuccia Prada has inspired a culture of creativity that is woven through every aspect of her company, from her collections and campaigns to every design detail in her stores" said Maguire. "I have such admiration for her artistry and I'm thrilled to be a part of Prada's fall campaign."
