Congratulations are in order for actor Antonio Banderas, 55, who is now in the second week of classes at his new university, London’s Central Saint Martins.

The art and design school has trained John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, and Stella McCartney, and will now have the privilege of molding the middle-aged mind of Banderas, who once worked as an actor for money. Banderas, no doubt, is hoping the above picture of him groping several mannequins will appear in a future retrospective of his designs, which have yet to be created.

He will not mingle with many of his other co-eds, as he is taking a special short course which will end by the time full-time return in October.

On British talk show Loose Women, he recently divulged: “It’s something that has been in my mind for a long time.... I need the knowledge to take steps into that territory,” adding that fashion “makes me feel, actually, very young.”
