Rising Quebecois filmmaker, Xavier Dolan, has seen his childhood dream realised by becoming the face of Louis Vuitton's autumn men's campaign for the house's new leather goods range – Ombré. 

The Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize-winning director, steps in front of the lens, letting photographer Alasdair McLellan take aim, for the new campaign images, which capture the 26-year-old's doe-eyed allure. 

Dolan is perhaps best known for his 2009 directorial debut, I Killed My Mother, but it was the 2014 film, Mommy, which landed him his first major accolade. He is said to be working with Marion Cotillard on his next project.
