When we saw Megan Fox and Giorgio Armani posing for photos together at his Armani Prive show in July, we just KNEW there was something going on. And sure enough, today the designer has announced that he has hired the actress to star in his advertising for Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans for 2010.
Grazia can reveal the campaign has already been shot, last weekend in Los Angeles, by superstar fashion photography team Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, (which we can’t help thinking is something of a leg up in the style stakes for the star of the Transformers movie franchise).
Comparisons have already been drawn between Fox and that other fan of Giorgio Armani’s beyond sophisticated stylings; Angelina Jolie – Giorgio obviously has a very clear idea of who the Armani woman is.
Fox’s smouldering femme fatale looks will no doubt be the perfect replacement for Victoria and David’s steamy black and white portraits for the Armani campaigns last season (earlier this week it was announced that football stud Cristiano Ronaldo will be replacing David Beckham as the face of Emporio Armani, but he will not appear alongside Fox in any ads).
The campaign won’t appear until early next year but we’ll be intrigued to see Fox’s reincarnation as a high fashion model – now that’s what we call a Transformer.
