Rafael Nadal Strikes An Armani Pose
Last month we learned that tennis champ Rafael Nadal would be the new face of Emporio Armani underwear and Armani Jeans. Now the first images have been revealed. The black and white images were shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott who also turned their lenses on Megan Fox for her latest campaign for Armani which is after the jump. The ads will officially launch next month. Last month Armani released a couple of behind the scenes images of the Nadal shoot on Facebook.
It's the first time in a while that a tennis player has been chosen to front the mens campaign. Soccer has ruled lately with first David Beckham, whose sexy billboards caused heads to turn. More recently Cristiano Ronaldo bared his chiseled stomach and wicked smile in Armani's Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 advertising campaign. Those pictures were from Ronaldo's second season as the face and body of Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans.
