Will Megan Fox replace Victoria Beckham in Armani underwear ads?


Think about this – in a few month’s time, we could be seeing a scantily-clad Megan Fox draped over a bronzed, oily, half-naked David Beckham, all to promote Armani underwear. I have to admit, that sounds hot. And it’s close to happening too! It seems Victoria Beckham isn’t renewing her contract as the face (or “T&A”) of Armani. She’s starred in ads for Armani internationally for the past two years, mostly solo, but sometimes with her husband David. Posh gave her reason for quitting: that she wanted to “focus” on her clothing lines. At first I chuckled at that, because why turn down a fat modeling contract just to “focus” on your own clothing line? But then I read that Posh’s line is doing really well:

Just days after the release of Mrs Beckham’s Armani AW09 campaign, Victoria decided not to renew her yearly contract with Armani. She instead announced she will invest in her career as a fashion designer.

The launch of her latest collection at Net-a-porter.com was acclaimed by fashion editors all over the world. However, her true success came with some of her designs selling out within hours of going online.

With prices from £1200 to £1750 it surprised me how quickly it sold out. Last season the dresses sold out in the luxury department store, Selfridges within a day. There is no better barometer for a fashion designer than this.

While I’m still unsure if dropping the contract was a wise move, I understand it if Posh really does want to devote more time to developing her brand. But something tells me Posh will be regretting her decision soon enough, if these most recent rumors are true. It seems that Armani might be interested in hiring Megan Fox to replace Posh. Imagine Megan Fox, oiled up and posing on top of David. Now imagine Posh’s head exploding:

Megan Fox is reportedly replacing Victoria Beckham as the new face of Armani. The “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” star is said to be the next spokesperson of the Emporio Armani underline line.

Beckham, who stars in the ads with husband David, allegedly will not renew her one-year contract with the brand and will instead concentrate on her own numerous fashion and beauty projects.

News of the World has quoted a source saying that Fox is “perfect” for the Italian brand.
Neither Beckham nor Fox confirmed the report.

Last month there was a funny rumor that Angelina Jolie was about to sign on to represent Armani fragrances, jointly with David Beckham. Nothing ever came of that rumor, and David hilariously denied it by going off on a tangent, something about how amazing she is, saying: “She’s an amazing person and so is Brad. They’re an incredible couple — got an amazing family. You know she wouldn’t do it and I wouldn’t do it. At the end of the day, I wouldn’t do it because I’m married.” I think the gist is that Posh won’t let David model with anyone she thinks he would sleep with. So… that’s probably a “no” on the Megan Fox rumor.

    I know I’m feeling a brain bleed coming on, but not for the same reason. Reading this insipid shit on a Monday is more the reason…like, it’s too early in the week for this level of celebrity suck. Megan Fox posing in underwear… alert the media, ON NEPTUNE, because that’s probably the only planet that hasn’t witnessed “the splendour” yet.

    Trailer trash in Armani. Fox couldnt make anything look classy if her life depended on it.

    She’s orange
    Tacky Tattoos
    Lousy attitude

    If this is true, Armani has lost it.

    Yeesh I wish Megan would get her veneers filed down so she can close her mouth properly. I don’t think she is going to age well – look at her neck already.

    Strangely, Beckham in panties does nothing for me. Not sure what it is exactly…

    Him or her? It’s sad I even need to ask that question, now that I think about it…

    @ Bill – him! You know – the naked monkey hanging on a rope above our posts!

    I love Posh in those ads. A big, fat NO to Fox doing them, please!

    Well, considering that Victoria is also orange, tacky, uninteresting and to boot, famous for nothing (she used to be a “singer”, but her group broke up ages ago and now being David’s wife became her full time job), Megan can be a very suitable choice to replace her. At least, Megan looks less cadaveric skinny.

    Fox has a turkey neck happening and toe tumbs. Victoria is only orange because of tans Fox is orange by genetics and has to use 6 different colors of makes up to look white which always manages to make her face look like a completely different color than her body. not to mention how heavily photoshopped she is and her tiny dead eyes.
