David Bowie has signed up to be the face of Louis Vuitton, according to reports.

According to WWD, Bowie will be the face of the fashion house's L’Invitation au Voyage campaign alongside model Arizona Muse, who appeared in the first round of advertising last year. It is reported that Bowie shot a TV advert in Venice earlier this year, which is due to be aired later this year. Other musicians who have starred in Vuitton campaigns in the past include Bono, Keith Richards and Madonna.

Meanwhile, Bowie is currently one of William Hill's favourite to win the 2013 Barclaycard Mercury Prize, after the nominations were announced earlier this month (September 11). Arctic Monkeys' recently released fifth album 'AM' and David Bowie's 'The Next Day' both have odds of 4/1, according to the event's official bookies.

Albums by Foals, James Blake and Laura Marling are also on the shortlist for the 12 Albums Of The Year, which was chosen by an independent judging panel and announced today at London's Hospital Club. London Grammar were previously named as the favourite for the 2013 prize by bookmakers, but their album 'If You Wait' was not nominated. The winner will be announced at a ceremony in London's Roundhouse on October 30.
