A celebrity fashion designer, a couple of models, some clothes, and the most famous racing driver in the world: Lewis Hamilton’s appearance at a Tommy Hilfiger event in Tokyo recently was the typical razzamatazz fashion affair.
Hundreds of smartphones were thrust skywards in a frenzied attempt to get a snap of Hailey Baldwin, Winnie Harlow, plus Tommy Hilfiger and his brand ambassador, the new F1 World Champion as they posed together on stage. No big deal, right? Wrong.
Of course, this being Lewis Hamilton, gossip was never far away. The man who seems to attract more chatter than any other driver on the Formula One circuit found himself the target of a whispering campaign that suggested he was spending too much time on commercial endorsements and not enough time working on his day job.
