Johnny Depp is set to become the first male celebrity to have a starring moment in one of Rihanna's Fenty collaboration shows.
However, Depp is far from the only famous face set to appear at the showcase and Rihanna herself will be there as well as actor Winston Duke of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and more.
There will also be performances at the event from Burna Boy and Anitta, Variety reports.
Depp will be following in the footsteps of other celebrities who have modelled for the brand including Cindy Crawford, who appeared in the 2021 Savage X Fenty showcase.
News of Depp's appearance in the fashion show comes after he has begun a comeback after winning his highly publicised defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
This saw Depp sue his former partner of an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post back in 2018 that he claimed defamed him by implying that he was abusive.
Depp's return to public life began almost as soon as the trial ended and saw him perform with Jeff Beck in England back in June.
He went on to appear at one of the entertainment world's biggest events, the VMAs, in August in digital form as a the Moon Person and delivered a few one-liners.
Depp issued a statement after he won the defamation trial on almost all counts and said 'the jury gave me my life back. I am truly humbled'.
He said: "False, very serious and criminal allegations were levied at me via the media, which triggered an endless barrage of hateful content, although no charges were ever brought against me.
"It had already travelled around the world twice within a nanosecond and it had a seismic impact on my life and my career.
"My decision to pursue this case, knowing very well the height of the legal hurdles that I would be facing and the inevitable, worldwide spectacle into my life, was only made after considerable thought.
"From the very beginning, the goal of bringing this case was to reveal the truth, regardless of the outcome. Speaking the truth was something that I owed to my children and to all those who have remained steadfast in their support of me. I feel at peace knowing I have finally accomplished that."
While both Depp and Heard were found guilty of defamation in their respective lawsuits, Depp received $15 in compensatory and punitive damages while Heard received just $2 in compensatory damages.
