A BARNSLEY man and his girlfriend are turning heads as the new faces for ultra hip French fashion brand The Kooples.

Matthew Davis and Alice Kelson, who have been together for two years, were chosen for The Kooples spring summer collection advertising campaign featuring real-life couples.

Now Matt, 29, and Alice, 22, are gracing posters and billboards in top fashion stores in London and Paris - they're even on the back of buses in the two cities.

Former Barnsley College art student Matt lived in Wombwell before moving to Oz in April 2010.
