>> No surprises here: Gwyneth Paltrow has been confirmed for the Fall 2008 Tod's print campaign.
It was revealed a couple of weeks ago that Gwyneth Paltrow was shooting a promotional video for Tod's around Rome, and now a few more details about the Dennis Hopper-directed, Fellini-inspired, short have emerged.
Gwyneth plays an actress (there's a stretch) being interviewed by a "devastatingly handsome" Italian journalist. When the paparazzi descend, Gwyneth flees, forgetting her Tod's Pashmy bag. The chivalrous journalist sets off to find her and reunite her with her Pashmy, eventually tracking her down at a "glamorous ball" just outside Rome. As Hopper puts it: "Cinderella had her shoe. Gwyneth has her Tod's bag."
