OVER THE MOON: Word has it Louis Vuitton has tapped Buzz Aldrin for an upcoming advertising campaign. According to a source, the legendary astronaut is slated to travel to a desert in the United States this week to be photographed by Annie Leibovitz. Aldrin, who made history as the second man to set foot on the moon, is expected to appear alongside fellow astronauts Jim Lovell and Sally Ride. Aldrin confirmed he’d been cast for the gig at a glitzy Omega cocktail during the Baselworld watch and jewelry fair in Switzerland over the weekend. It was held to commemorate the brand’s Omega Speedmaster watch series that was worn by crew members on the historic Apollo 11 mission in 1969. Also at the event, Omega ambassador Eugene Cernan, who was the last man to walk on the moon, asserted that the watch brand’s relationship with space travelers is written in the stars. “I can promise you that the first watch that will be worn on planet Mars will be an Omega Speedmaster,” he said.
