Marc Jacobs Sounds Off On His Newest Model: Posh!

We should have known something was up when Victoria Beckham made such a splash at the Marc Jacobs show in September — the rumors had been swirling, but now Marc Jacobs has confirmed that his latest campaign is starring the Spice Girl. WWD quotes the famed designer as saying “She was a great sport. She agreed to do something rough and tough and quite raw. It wasn’t days and days of hair and makeup.” Marc tells WWD that the campaign, shot by regular contributor Juergen Teller, depicts Victoria amid giant Marc Jacobs gift boxes and shopping bags, an allusion to the marketing of celebrities. Turns out that Posh was game for anything, no matter how offbeat the idea seemed. The designer says that his favorite images show Posh popping out of a box or with her head buried in a shopping bag. “She was like, ‘I totally get it and I’m totally into it,” Jacobs said. “She has an amazing sense of humor about herself….She just gave herself over to it.” We cannot wait to see these ads! Tell us: What do you think of Posh starring in Marc Jacobs ads? Are you excited to see them?

Are You Serious????????????!!!!?
..Shes Too OLD & SHORT To Be A MODEL!!!!!!!!!

OMG I CANT BELIEVE ABOUT 700 PEOPLE BLOGGED ABOUT KATIE HOLMES’ NEW BANGED BOB!!!!

I am not excited to see Posh in the new ads. Designers should give new models the opportunity. Posh is soooooooooooooo hurt looking!! She looks like a rat or a chihuahua.

I think Marc is making a HUGE mistake! This woman doesn’t represent his customer at all. She should be doing Versace or Dolce & Gabbana ads. Not Marc Jacobs!

jo on

I couldn’t see her doing that. I think they will be ‘interesting’ to see, but I wouldn’t say I’m excited about them

-Skeptical

I love Marc Jacobs! I think Posh is the perfect choice to showcase his line. Just a good combination.

Allana on

I dont give a damn about her, She’s way too old… and not so pretty at all

TG on

She has one pose, one look… that and her bolt on boobs a model does not make.

I love Marc Jacobs, but don’t think much of his choice.

Dorothy on

Can’t wait to see her mummified expression with the inflated rack over and over again.
What a waste for such a good designer!

Lee on

Who really cares!!

steph on

how sad that he has to use her to generate revenue. surely he can find a prettier model without the absolutely ridiculous fake boobs who will look much better in his ads. maybe he should call Britney as well!

Mistake!!!

MARTA on

SHE IS SO PLASTIC, LOOKS LIKE SHE IS GOING TO BREAK ANY DAY NOW. THAT CHICK BETTER START SMILING OR SOMETHING. SHE HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING GOING FOR HER. GET OVER YOURSELF VICTORIA, YOU PEOPLE WILL NEVER BE HOLLYWOOD ROYALTY, AND THAT LEMON OF A SOCCER PLAYER HUSBAND OF YOURS BETTER GET HIS ACT TOGETHER AND GIVE THE GALAXY WHAT THEY PAID FOR.

GO BACK TO THE WHERE YOU BELONG….

Valencia on

Who cares?

Jason on

Some of you are just a bunch of haters especially you MARTA and they are here to stay whether you like it or not otherwise why don’t you move away. Some on here claiming they don’t care well you sure cared enough to post I don’t get why people like to b.itch so much about her it’s ridiculous how people love to seek out others and whine like a bunch of cry babies about them.

TIna on

My boobs sit just as high as Victorias do-
WHEN I’M STANDING ON MY HEAD!!!

Kate on

At least she has the capacity to laugh at herself. It’s amazing that all you have to do is cut her or other celebrities down. Take a look in the mirror. Anyone at anytime could do the same to you.

Oh my goodness how much more LOW can that dress be!!!!

Kate on

At least she can find humor in the situation and has the capacity to laugh at herself. She’s so witty and offers so much more than her looks. I think it’s a great match! Kudos to Marc Jacobs!

Taylor on

I really LOVE Victoria Beckham! I’m really glad. I would buy anything she’s selling if I had the money. She’s a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see the ads. I’m sure they will be wonderful to look at. I love Victoria. I think she’s talented in many ways, especially in the fashion sense. I love her look, make-up, clothes. She just looks great in everything she wears. Very pulled together all of the time. I’m sure David is proud.

Eyes too dark, hair too yellow, skin too orangey.

MP on

Geez everyone; stop hating just because your jealous or all she has and that she’s gorgeous and has the hottest man on the planet. They’ll make magic :)

elizabeth on

Do you know in one way i adore Posh cause i’d say she’s a lovely person if you actually met her but i think she’s a bit over-rated. I mean she’s no model, she’s not even good-looking! She dresses like a teenager, maybe a young 20 something if we’re pushing it.
Her pics in Vogue were hideous to say the least.

agata on

she cant be worse than any other anorexic model
