LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Now you can just call him… McFashionista.
Patrick Dempsey has been announced as the new face of Versace’s upcoming men’s spring/summer line, Access Hollywood has learned.
The “Grey’s Anatomy” heartthrob was photographed for the ad campaign in November by renowned fashion photographer Mario Testino.
“I was thrilled to be asked to be the face of the Versace Men’s campaign,” Dempsey said. “It was so lovely to work with Donatella Versace, she is an iconic and inspirational woman and a wonderful person, not to mention what a pleasure it was to work with Mario Testino too, one of the world’s finest photographers.”
For Donatella Versace, Dr. McDreamy was the perfect choice to represent the popular fashion line on a global scale.
“Patrick represents everything that is great about this collection - he has that confidence, he is completely comfortable in his own skin, which is so attractive. He is the modern man of today and of course looks fantastic in the clothes,” she said.
And of course, his impressive Hollywood resume didn’t hurt either.
“I’m a big fan,” Donatella added. “So it was a great experience working with him because he is such a talented actor.”
Dempsey currently stars in the Disney film “Enchanted,” which has held on to the top spot at the box office since its November 21 debut.
Dempsey follows in the modeling footsteps of actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who served as the face of Versace for their spring/summer 2007 line.
The Versace print ads featuring Dempsey will begin circulating in magazines in February 2008.
