Pitbull’s Song Lands in Lanvin’s Fall 2011 Ad Campaign — Watch

Pitbull is notorious for stepping out in his finest attire, opting for slacks and loafers rather than stereotypical rapper wares like oversized T-shirts and air Forces 1s. With high fashion obviously on his mind, it’s fitting that one of the Miami native’s songs would be the soundtrack to designer fashion house Lanvin’s Fall 2011 ad campaign.

In the visuals, shot by famous fashion photographer Steven Meisel, Pitbull’s ‘I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)’ serves as the title track while male and female models prance around, showing off dance moves and the sophisticated elegance of Lanvin’s designs.

Famous models such as Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmerman dance their cares away — in Alber Elbaz’s collection of eye-catching dresses — while standing in a sumptuously furnished room as Pit’s energetic lyrics fill the air. A pair of men do the same, though when it’s their turn to bust a move, they don’t pull it off as graciously as their female counterparts.

In other Pitbull news, the Cuban rap star recently performed at the 2011 MTV VMAs, where he moved through his hit single ‘Give Me Everything,’ assisted by Ne-Yo and Nayer. The ‘Planet Pit’ creator is currently facing a lawsuit, filed by actress Lindsay Lohan, who claims his lyrics in the song take unnecessary jabs at her.
