Vogue Italia featuring only black models.
Now, a Taiwan-born actor named Takeshi Kaneshiro, will be joining David Beckham as the "face" of Emporio Armani Underwear. He will be the first Asian model to appear in an advertising campaign for the brand.
Armani described Kaneshiro as, "a film and style icon in Asia" whose "sense of effortless style is very contemporary and sophisticated and together with his good look makes him the ideal testimonial for Emporio Armani."
Kaneshiro will appear in the Fall/Winter 2008-09 advertisements.
