Keith Richards is One Hot Granpa For Louis Vuitton

Keith Richards, the legendary guitarist and songwriter, and founding member of The Rolling Stones, is the latest celebrity to feature in Louis Vuitton's advertising campaign.
I never thought one day I would say that Keith Richards looks kinda totally hot in this photo promotion for Louis Vuitton. But Keith Richards is HOT!! OMG, the world is coming to an end.
Now seriously, how old is Keith?? Like 2 or 3 centuries?? Right??Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, Keith Richards is pictured cradling his guitar in a hotel room he has transformed by draping black scarves with skull motifs over the lamps and placing a skull on a bedside table.
"This is the first time ever that Keith Richards has participated in an advertising campaign of any sort, and it is hard to imagine a more compelling embodiment of a personal, emotional journey." – says the Head of Communication for Louis Vuitton.
The tagline for this campaign states simply:
"Some journeys cannot be put into words. New York. 3 am. Blues in C."

"London by Keith Richards" is the latest update to the online Journeys campaign from Louis Vuitton and Ogilvy Interactive. Experience London as Keith Richards sees it, from his favorite concert hall to his quest for the perfect shepherd's pie. "London by Keith Richards" follows "New York by Andre Agassi & Steffi Graf," "Paris by Catherine Deneuve," and "Moscow by Mihail Gorbachev," but with one big difference: for the first time in the series, the journey was done entirely in film, with extensive footage of Keith's narration. Some journeys just have to be seen to be believed.
