The fashion world is abuzz with the confirmation that Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham was shot by Juergen Teller for Marc Jacobs' Spring 2008 ad campaign. Rumors of the deal began in September when Plastic Posh sat front row at MJ's NY Fashion Week show.
Personally, I have a love-hate relationship with Vicky. She's kinda funny looking in that angry blow-up doll kind of way but also kinda gorgeous. Personally, her ultra-plucked and polished glamazon look seems more suited to Louis Vuitton a la the days when J.Lo hawked Vuitton wares.
However, Jacobs has always picked a safely-polarizing celebrity for his ads (i.e. Winona Ryder after her shoplifting debacle and burlesque star Dita Von Teese), so Posh fits right in. It will be interesting to see how Posh looks after getting the Marc Jacobs/Juergen Teller treatment.
