Victoria Beckham: Out of The Bag And In the Flesh
Most fashion savvy people know that Victoria Beckham has signed on to be the spokesmodel for Marc Jacobs Summer 2008 ad campaign. As a result of that collaboration, photographer Juergen Teller shot these 'fun' and funky photos of Victoria Beckham (below) posing as 'product' for Marc Jacobs with her emerging from Jacobs' bags and boxes. They have spread like wildfire across the net, so you've probably already seen them.
But now Mrs. Beckham has bared all in the name of charity. She has posed nude for Mr. Jacobs, and put her name behind his fashion campaign to warn people about the dangers of skin cancer:
Posh appears naked on a T-shirt which has also been signed by her according to The Sun newspaper. The T-shirt will be on sale in Marc Jacobs' shops from next week. Below is a pic of her hottie hubby soccer star donning the shirt.
As far as the actual ad campaign for the Marc Jacobs' clothing line, breaking in February's Vogue issue, they are shot by photographer Juergen Teller. Most people haven't seen the ads of Posh donning the clothes, so here's one for you:
