Carlsen reinvented

Hello Everyone,

International clothing brand G-Star has contracted World No. 1 Grandmaster Magnus Carlsen as a fashion model! Carlsen will take to the ramp for G-Star's autumn and winter collection. He may even prepare for a catwalk during the New York Fashion Week in September.

The G-Star campaign with Carlsen and actress Liv Tyler (of Lord of the Rings fame) was launched in Berlin on Wednesday. Photographer Anton Corbijn has done the shoot for the campaign.

"I think I look tough,” Carlsen said to a journalist of NRK Sports. Check out this video at NRK Sports Website and keep track of the G-Star Website. You can also read a news report in English here.
