Even though she’s a mom, Victoria Beckham‘s taut and toned body in the new Armani ad released today is utterly devoid of wrinkles and jiggly bits. Gisele’s pregnant belly was flattened in the London Fog ads. Beth Ditto got fattened up on the cover of Love. Kim Kardashian appeared slimmed and lightened in Complex. Jeez Louise, the Photoshop-wielding warlocks should win big fat trophies for all their Great Moments In Airbrushing humdingers this year.
Or maybe airbrushed ads should get warning labels, says one British politician. Jo Swinson, a Liberal Democrat in the U.K., said that airbrushing should be banned on advertising intended for viewing by children younger than 16 and all other airbrushed images should carry labels that say what’s been altered.
It’s an absolutely brilliant idea. But unfortunately, it will never happen. Keep reading »
Cut-from-stone David Beckham will not be posing in his undies with anyone other than his wife, anytime soon. The soccer star denied reports that he would be posing with Angelina Jolie for new Emporio Armani ads. “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,” Becks told “Extra.” In the past, Beckham has posed with his wife, Victoria for similar ads, but rejects rumors about doing the same with Jolie. Having just celebrated his 10th wedding anniversary with Vic and knowing Jolie’s husband-snatching past, Beckham has totally taken the right stance on this one. [Extra]

Posh Spice Victoria Beckham may or may not be in the upcoming Sex and the City sequel. Ohmygod. Intel on this rumor remains fairly vague, so we can’t tell you much beyond the whisperings that she’ll be playing a fashion industry figure if she does, indeed, make an appearance. But lest we leave you hanging entirely, let’s engage in some wild speculation as to what various roles she might play. Fun, right? [Elle UK] Keep reading »
Our fave posh fashionista is ready for her closeup…well, as soon as she learns to act. That’s right, rumor has it that Victoria Beckham has enrolled in acting classes in the hopes of landing a coveted cameo in the “Sex in the City” sequel. She allegedly turned down a walk-on role in the first film because she was too busy rehearsing for the Spice Girls reunion tour. Translation: she’s a very bad actress. We know that she is a pro at being her thin and bitchy self (I would be bitchy too if I was that hungry), but can she hold her own with the likes of SJP? [Daily News]

Lebanese national Raffi Nernekian was arrested in Dubai for wearing a Marc Jacobs-designed T-shirt promoting skin cancer awareness with a nude photo of Victoria Beckham. Although all of Posh’s important lady parts were hidden by the “Protect the Skin You’re In” slogan, Nernekian reportedly got into an argument with a local over the shirt. After the argument he left to change his shirt, only to find the police waiting when he returned. He was jailed for a month for “offending public decency.” Although Dubai is a tourist destination even for folks like Paris Hilton (who has recently been searching for a new BFF there), visitors are advised to review the country’s moral and social code before partying it up — or getting dressed.
