Louis Vuitton's Newest Model Is a Final Fantasy Virtual Heroine 

She can rock a broadsword and haute couture.

Taking the fashion trend of exhibiting unrealistic body types to its logical extreme, Louis Vuitton is going with a full-on pixelated model for its latest campaign. Style conscious fans of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy series will recognize heroine Lighting as the latest face of the luxury goods company.

Louis Vuitton creative director Nicolas Ghesquière revealed the campaign by posting the rose-haired, blue-eyed warrior to his Instagram page. Not sure that this new outfit offers protection against elder gods and evil wizards equal to her traditional armor, but it’ll play better in the club.

Funny enough, this isn’t the first time a Final Fantasy character has modeled. With the release of little-remembered animated film Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within in 2001, female character Dr. Aki Ross appeared in Maxim as part of the lad mag’s Hot 100 list, rocking a wisp of a bikini. Hopefully, when Tom Ford debuts his Spring collection he’ll give a thought to some diversity in game modeling. That Yoshi has so many looks.
