Bae debuts for Louis Vuitton
Louis Vuitton’s 2015 spring and summer advertising campaign featuring actress Bae Doo-na was unveiled yesterday on the luxury brand’s official Instagram account.
In the advertising campaign, shot by renowned French photographer Patrick Demarchelier, the 35-year-old actress gazes ahead, wearing a leather jacket and wide velour pants.
So far, Bae is the only Asian actress to represent the brand, joining the likes of Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Miranda Kerr and Michelle Williams.
Bae has led a prolific career in film since debuting as a cover girl on a fashion magazine at age 16.
She has since taken on various roles, from an archer who stands up against a monster living in the Han River in the 2006 hit film “The Host,” to a blow-up doll who develops human emotions in “Air Doll” (2009).
Her robust portrayal of the sex doll in the 2009 Japanese film, directed by Hirokazu Koreeda, earned her a chance to work with Andy and Lana Wachowski in “Cloud Atlas” (2012).
She also recently shot a drama series entitled “Sense8” that was co-directed by the brother-sister duo.
