Sir Anthony Hopkins is the new face of Brioni
Sir Anthony Hopkins is an incredibly entertaining individual. From his nightmarishly creepy stares in the comedy version of Silence of the Lambs, to watching some stuff go "boom" in the Transformers trailer, the Welsh screen legend knows how to capture an audience. And this autumn, he's capturing his fans in a new way: as the face of Italian fashion brand Brioni, in its fall/winter ad campaign.
Both Hopkins and Brioni are established cultural staples, albeit in different areas. But together, they create a type of nostalgic, old-school vibe. Of course, that might have something to do with all the photos being shot in black and white. Either way, it adds to the feeling of no-b.s., classically good style.
The Italian brand is known for its timeless eye for design, focusing on great suits, tailored jackets, and unrivaled tailoring. Hopkins is wearing just that in this campaign too; he's styled in topcoats, a double-breasted jacket, and a fashion scarf. Long live Sir Anthony Hopkins.
