Antonio Banderas is trading Shrek, Princess Fiona, Donkey, and Zorro for a row of headless mannequins, for now. The actor and director recently tweeted from week two at world-renowned fashion school, Central St. Martins. He commented on his experience thus far, "Intense, exciting, serious and fun all the same time."
