Now that the slog of fashion month has finally come to a close, it’s time to sit back, relax, and soak in some culture. Which is precisely what Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk did Wednesday night when they watched the opera at Paris’s Palais Garnier while sitting next to a handful of the most powerful men in the fashion industry.

Though the couple has kept their love mostly-private for almost the entire year they’ve been dating, they have no qualms about showing it off ever since their first official red carpet debut this past Tuesday at the L’Oreal Red Obsession Party in Paris. They proved such when they continued their public love fest at the Arop Charity Gala last night. Irina chose a white satin sheath dress with a sharply tailored white blazer draped across her shoulders for the occasion, while Bradley wore a classic Tom Ford black windsor three piece suit paired with a black tie.

But their evening together was more than just date night, as the couple spent the night sitting next to billionaires Baron David de Rothschild, Francois Pinault and Francois-Henri Pinault. The latter happens to be the CEO of luxury conglomerate Kering, which owns a lengthy roster of high-end brands, including Gucci, Balenciaga, Saint Laurent and Stella McCartney.
Could deals have been made after rubbing shoulders with these high-powered players? Is there a major fashion campaign in the actor’s near future? Just in case Kering is still looking for the perfect fit for him, we happen to have a few ideas on how Bradley could get involved.
1. Become Hedi Slimane’s new celebrity muse for Saint Laurent
He’s not quite as waify as Hedi usually likes his men, but a strict model diet could fix that in no time flat.
2. Co-design Gucci’s next artist collaboration like Gucci Ghost did for FW16
We don’t know if Bradley has any drawing talent, but we wouldn’t mind finding out.
3. He could be the first face of Stella McCartney menswear
Even though Stella doesn’t make menswear…yet.
4. He could play Alexander McQueen in a biopic
We’re actually immediately sorry for even suggesting that heresy.
5. He could walk in the next Balenciaga show
Actually, given the penchant he shares with designer Demna Gvasalia for oversized sweatshirts and baseball caps, we may have just cracked this case.
What do you think of Bradley and Irina’s date night looks? What Kering brand do you think Bradley could potentially be working for?
