WWD began the rumblings several months ago, and now we've heard from someone involved with the shoot that Victoria Beckham has indeed been styled, photographed, and paid (oh my, she was paid...) for the Spring '08 Marc Jacobs ads. Juergen Teller did the honors and shot Posh Spice just after Halloween. The move ensures two things in the land of MJ: 1. Like Dakota Fanning and Meg White before her, now that VB has been chosen by Marc himself, she's officially and undeniably cool. This is fine with us, because she seems pretty funny and smart. 2. Marc's done with his Violet Incredible obsession and he's moved onto finding the complications in glossed and glassy women, not shaggy and sharded girls. As his own appearance morphs and changes, his clothes edge into more implicit ideas about sex and identity - and so do his heroines. Dita and Victoria are the new Golden Girls here, and we've got to get used to it. At least, for this season we will. PS: The photo we chose... well, we really wanted one of Posh smiling... but she still had to have her trademark short hair... and this is the only one we found!
