9AM News: Victoria Beckham's latest Armani advert, plus Chanel Iman turns TV star...

05 August 2009

Victoria Beckham Emporio Armani

Just when you were getting withdrawal symptoms from those pictures of David Beckham in his boxers, his wife's latest campaign shot for Emporio Armani arrives. Let's assess: just how much hair gel is in that top-knot to keep it vertical? How many hours did VB work out to get that body? And can we look like that just by putting on  lizard-print underwear? (I think we all know the answer to that one.) Oh, and before we forget, what's with the ladder? Too much symbolism for us to speculate this morning...

Meanwhile, in case Victoria baring (almost) all isn't enough to float your boat this fine fashionable morning, here are some other snippets to entertain:

Kate Moss is on her annual hob-knobbing trip on the fashion elite's yacht holiday. Last summer it was Marc Jacobs. This time, the supermodel is chilling out with YSL's Stefano Pilati and fellow model Karen Mulder in St Tropez. Jealous? Us? [Daily Mail]

And finally, we try not to be annoyed, we really do. But we can't help being peeved that the gorgeous Rodarte sisters have signed up with budget US retailer Target to produce a 55-piece collection. The ‘feminine, yet very modern' collection, which ‘incorporates a rich mix of patterns and fabrications and everything from sequins and bows to faux fur' will only be available in the US. And eBay we hope. [WWD]

Another two reasons to revisit our favourite TV show, America's Next Top Model. They've signed up super cute model Chanel Iman and super-addictive Lauren Conrad to be guest judges. [Modelinia, Perez Hilton]

Take a peek inside Zandra Rhodes' wacky and wonderful wardrobe. As you'd expect, it's full of pink, glitter and huge floral prints. [Independent]
