Victoria Beckham To Be New Face of Marc Jacobs: Now He’s Really Gone off the Deep End

December 6, 2007 by Bryn

I have always admired Marc Jacobs. I find his clothes to be conceptual, progressive, and marketable to a wide array of the population. He’s weathered the storms of the relentless fashion industry and even managed to get in a jab here and there. But, Marc, now you’ve gone too far. Posh Spice???

My heart sunk when I heard the news. I was this close to throwing my MJ satchel in the nearest trash receptacle in a fit of defiant protest. I held my tongue when the creepy Dakota girl was photographed in mommy’s clothes. Even considered it a bit edgy. But now, with this horrendous news, I will be downright afraid to open a magazine. I mean, can you even picture pouty Vicky Beckham under the bare white lights of Juergen Teller? My god, her roots might show, or the scars from the face lift she’s probably already had.

Posh will be posing in clothes from his Spring 2008 collection. This is by far the best part. Posh’s style (and it really kills me to use her name and "style" in the same sentence) consists of skin tight dresses that show so much cleavage, you wonder why she bothers to cover the girls at all. Does this sound like the aesthetic of Marc Jacobs? I can just picture her in some of these pieces from his upcoming line:

However, I did manage to find one piece that would suit her quite nicely. Maybe Marc could add an ‘I love you Davie’ to the jersey to jazz it up for his new leading lady.

When it comes down to it, Posh doesn’t have enough personality, irony, class, or body mass to represent the Marc Jacobs line. Mr. Jacobs himself has been quoted as saying he aims to ‘reflect the disjointedness…of celebrity worship’, naming Beckham as one of the ‘women he views, in their imperfect ways, as modern’.  Well Marc, imperfect is right.  So is tacky, talentless, and gaudy. But I suppose I must retain a modicum of hope. This might be just another trick up his sleeve- the master puppeteer manipulating his doting masses.  We’ll just have to wait and see. And maybe, just maybe, the collaborative genius of Teller and Jacobs will make Beckham look, gulp, tasteful.  But I wouldn’t hold my breath.

P.S.- If you share a similar adoration for Jacobs’ creations, the Spring 08 collection hasn’t hit stores yet, but some chic looks from his Fall07 line are perfect for holiday parties.  The asymmetric velvet dress ($1800) and drop-waist black and teal dress ($1700) are among my favorites.
