He’s the most decorated Olympian of all time, having won 22 medals for his swimming abilities, and now it looks as though Michael Phelps will be taking the plunge into fashion as the new face of Louis Vuitton.
It was only a matter of time before the now-retired U.S swimmer landed himself a high-end designer spot, and now he will front the latest Louis Vuitton Core Values campaign, following the suit of Sean Connery and Catherine Deneuve as he poses with the famous French brand’s monogrammed bags marked with ‘LV.’
Michael, 27, has already made quite an impact since diving into the fashion industry, as the gold medal-winning Olympic champ shows off his best assets in a miniscule pair of Speedos and goggles in an ad for the luxury label.

We had to physically pry our eyes away from Phelps to describe the rest of the shot…
