Following in the footsteps of husband, David Beckham, Posh Spice has struck a new deal with Emporio Armani.

Reuters reports that Victoria will become an underwear model for the fashion house.

The ad campaign will roll out in Spring 2009.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters Life!) – Victoria Beckham, a regular on lists of the best-dressed celebrities, is following the lead of her famous footballer husband and stripping down to her designer underwear for an advertising campaign.


Emporio Armani on Wednesday said Beckham, who came to fame as “Posh Spice” in the British pop group the Spice Girls, will model underwear for the company in an advertising campaign set to roll out in spring next year.


She joins her husband, British soccer star David Beckham, who was the focus of a similar Armani underwear campaign this past summer that caused a stir among his fans.

Victoria Beckham, 34, posed for the pictures in the ritzy beachside community of Malibu where she lives with her husband and their three young sons.


The images were shot by fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the same duo who took David Beckham’s underwear ad pictures.


“Victoria is a style icon, a dynamic lady whose influence and recognition will add great excitement to the continued international growth of our Emporio Armani women’s underwear business,” Giorgio Armani, the Italian designer at the head of the company, said in a statement.
It’s far from Beckham’s first venture into fashion.


She has worked as a model and four years ago she designed her own line of high-end denim jeans for Rock and Republic. She has also marketed jeans under her own label, dVb.


The Beckhams moved to Los Angeles from Britain last year so David Beckham could play soccer for the L.A. Galaxy although he is now negotiating a short-term loan to play for AC Milan from next January.

Being from Barbados, I’m always eager to celebrate Rihanna’s fashion sense.

But after seeing pics posted on the City Rag blog today, I am slightly (ok, very) disappointed.

Take a look.

Are you a fan of The Beatles?

Then you’ll want to find a Virgin Megastore QUICK.

They’ve created Beatles Boutiques in all of their U.S. stores.

Starting today, the British-born brand will offer a comprehensive collection of Beatles apparel, accessories, books, CDs and DVDs in specially designed mini-stores inside all the Virgin Megastores.

Virgin Megastores is one of the first retailers to offer the largest collection of Beatles-themed products under one roof.

Proving that music success can indeed be “Made In Detroit,” Kid Rock is partnering with Wayne State University.

Together, they’ll fund a music scholarship that inspires Detroit’s youth to believe in themselves, their city and embrace its rich music legacy.

Kid Rock’s Made In Detroit Clothing company has co-created a limited edition t-shirt featuring its trademark logo embedded in the Wayne State moniker.

The scholarship will be funded by proceeds from the sale of the t-shirt, which will be available at Barnes & Noble on Wayne State’s Midtown campus.

Fans can also order the t-shirt on-line at http://www.wayne.edu and http://www.MadeInDetroit.com.

  • Tom Ford
