Abercrombie & Fitch threw a party Thursday to launch its 2013 Stars on the Rise campaign, featuring a number of up-and-coming young actors who will appear in the clothier's back-to-school ad campaign.
The roster of fresh faces includes Emayatzy Corinealdi (of "Middle of Nowhere"), Halston Sage ("Grown Ups 2"), Jacob Artist ("Glee"), Johnny Ferro ("Children of God"), Scott Eastwood ("Texas Chainsaw 3D"), Taylor Handley ("Chasing Mavericks"), Ashley Hinshaw ("Chronicle"), Alex Kaluzhsky ("The Taking of Pelham 123") and Lily Rabe ("American Horror Story").
Appearing in the campaign, shot by Bruce Weber, can be good karma. Past rising stars have included Taylor Swift, Channing Tatum, Ashton Kutcher and Penn Badgley, A&F says.
This year's campaign also includes some canine stars: bulldogs Popeye and Julio and -- perhaps the biggest name among the whole bunch, whether dog or human -- Uggie, the Jack Russell terrier who won our hearts in "The Artist."
Uggie seemed only too happy to show off his skills on a skateboard at the event at Abercrombie & Fitch store at the Grove in Los Angeles. He also seemed to like having some cuddle time with the ladies.
They don't say "it's a dog's life" for nothing.
