Michael Phelps and Louis Vuitton

Ryan Lochte may not have had much success in covering Vogue in July, but that doesn't stop his other fellow US Olympic swimmers from making a foray into the world of fashion. World record medalist and multiple-Olympics swimmer Michael Phelps has made his own debut with his new Louis Vuitton ads. In one, Phelps is lounging in a bathtub, donning his traditional speedo and googles, with a Louis Vuitton bag tub-side, in another, he's sporting a three piece suit and has his LV bag at his feet, sitting on a couch next to Larisa Latynina, former world record holder for most decorated Olympian. Shot by the legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz, this campaign seems a good first step as any into the world of retirement? Are you enamored with Phelps's new campaign? Do you think Ryan Lochte, a self proclaimed aspiring fashion designer, in envious of Phelps venture into the world of high fashion?
