Final Fantasy 13 star gets new gig as Louis Vuitton muse

Even on the runway, Lightning doesn't lose her edge

Lightning, star of Final Fantasy 13 and its sequels, has found part-time work as the face of French fashion house Louis Vuitton's latest ad campaign.

Footage of the JRPG heroine in action first surfaced on the Instagram account of Nicolas Ghesquiere, the brand's creative director. Not only did he share the clip, which you can check out above, but he also confirmed that Louis Vuitton was working with Final Fantasy designer Tetsuya Nomura on the collaboration for its spring and summer 2016 campaign.

Final Fantasy has been noted for its ... unique fashion sense in the past. In fact, this isn't Lightning's first modeling gig: She and her Final Fantasy 13 co-stars were featured in a Prada menswear campaign back in 2012.
