UPDATE: It looks like Phelps and Louis are not a match made in
To tote around all 22 of his Olympic medals, we could have guessed that Michael Phelps would want something a little more fabulous than the average nylon duffel — but who knew he was this attached to his carry-on?
For Louis Vuitton's new luggage ads, Annie Leibovitz shot Phelps in the bathroom stripped down to his swimming essentials, with only his towel, a pair of jeans, and a monogrammed piece of luggage at his side. While we don't recommend using a Louis Vuitton bag as your cosmetics case, we do acknowledge that a big guy like Phelps requires a little more space than the regular bather. Now — Ryan Lochte on the other hand… (we're thinking he carries his stuff around in something a little closer to this). (Just Jared)
