Following in her husband David Beckham‘s hugely successful footsteps as the face and stellar body of Emporio Armani’s underwear collection, Victoria Beckham is stripping down for the venerable Italian designer. She will debut as the “worldwide testimonial” for Emporio Armani Women’s underwear in the Spring/Summer 2009 campaign shot by renowned fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. In a release, Giorgio Armani said, “Who better than Victoria Beckham to launch our new global Emporio Armani underwear campaign? 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.” Tell us: What do you think of Posh as underwear model?

suppose she really is anorexic, why would you be so critical and hative of someone ill?!
i’m not her fan but the bitterness is disturbing.

and there is no way i am “jealous” of victoria beckham.There are so many beautiful non-anorexic models and actresses out there,why her of all people?

Briana on

I am just confused with her face and body not matching?

OH…and Joanne, YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF. People like you are horrible..and if I had to guess..you are no stunner…

I agree with the comment on why can’t she smile? If I was David Beckham’s wife I would never stop smiling. Well, a girl can dream ;) Anyway, no she does not represent the average curvy woman. But hey If I was that skinny, I would show it off. And just because some girls on here don’t like her doesn’t mean they are jealous. You go Victoria! Don’t hate her but don’t love her either.

She’s ok looking, but she is not naturally thin.
She have been picked because she knows how to sell herself and she does have a good sense of humor about everything that said about her.
Besides who on here can afford Armani underwear in this economy. I’ll stick to my Hanes.

OMG! Stop all the “small boned” “not anorexic” CRAP!!!! SERIOUSLY! It’s so freaking old already! How long have we been hearing this BS from all these losers trying to justify their mental issues?!!! Soooooooooo annoying!!!!
Regarding Victoria, her style is fine with me.
Is she a fashionista? a fashion icon? Yes!
BUT—————–
No, I DO NOT want to see her in her underwear for crying out loud! That would be sad and a torture to have to see!
Just ’cause a person has style, doesn’t mean they’re right about everything including weight issues and so on…
I agree with whoever posted the comment saying a mannequin has more curves than her! Don’t people use mannequins to replace a real woman? If your skinnier than that, you seriously have a PROBLEM!
To model underwear a woman has to look like a woman, they’re not hiring an obese person right? so why hire an anorexic looking person?! Extremists are ridiculous, what happened to the in-between healthy look?! If you’re gonna model undies you better have some BOOTY and LEGS to show off! Poor Victoria, serious airbrushing and other techniques will be needed…

she is a beautiful woman and she fits the “fashion world’s” idea of fit….but unfortunaly her look doesn’t represent the average woman. she just appears very unhealthy
and at times unhappy…
but hey looks can be deceiving maybe she’s happy, healthy, and married to a really hot guy….

I don’t think she is qualify for it, when I look at a model, I look at the face first, she does not have the look, then i look at the body which she is way too skinny and her boobs are fake, if I see her in the advertisement I would not look at it the second time.

Although Posh may be internationally known, she unfortunately does not have any sex appeal, and I believe this is important when modelling underwear. It would be nice to see someone with a little more flesh on their bones and some womanly curves modelling pretty underwear.
