The fashion world is used to underage girls representing its brands: At fifteen, Gemma did Prada and Riley Keough did Dior, and whether Tanya D was fourteen or younger when she shot YSL is often discussed. So Versace's new teen face shouldn't be shocking - except that it's a sixteen year old boy. As pegged by Paris Vogue, their new poster child is Tuki Brando, the grandson of Marlon and the son of Tarita Cheyenne Brando, a former model who committed suicide when Tuki was five. He was raised in Tahiti by his grandmother, and lived there until recently, when he flew to Paris for a L'Uomo Vogue shoot with Bruce Weber. No doubt the new boy will be fun eye candy in magazines - but will he entice grown men to buy into the Versace brand? And isn't it odd that Versace's men's collections have gotten way more grown-up on the runways, thanks in large part to Cloak's Alexander Plohkov, only to be faced by someone born in the '90s?
