Johnny Depp Hits The London Catwalk
JOHNNY DEPP has been spotted on the London catwalk - or at least his doppleganger,Greg Payne,has - seen here at the Oliver Spencer menswear show this week. His appearance prompted an investigation into who this high-cheekboned, dark haired,broody lookalike was.
If Depp is still betrothed to acting although we haven"t given up hope he"ll do a Gary Oldman and hit the catwalk for Prada next season,then Payne is fashion"s model alternative. He"s certainly not a newcomer,having been working in fashion for 21 years,but - in celebration of London Collections: Men - it seemed more than appropriate to celebrate one of the event"s most aesthetically-pleasing faces. Or at least bring his name to a younger audience.
Now 36,Payne was first scouted by Elaine Constantine in McDonalds in Piccadilly Circus and went on to be signed by Models 1. In 1999,he was named People"s Sexiest Man and has subsequently shot campaigns for Valentino,Gucci, Kenzo,Yves Saint Laurent and Paul Smith to name but a few. Perhaps more unexpected is his involvement with Pix restaurant chain,for which he has a managerial role.
