ROME – Underwear ads apparently run in the family.
Fashion icon Victoria Beckham is the spokeswoman for the new Armani fashion house lingerie line — following in the footsteps of husband David Beckham, who also appeared in the fashion house's underwear campaign.
The company said Friday that Beckham will debut in the spring-summer 2009 advertising campaign of Emporio Armani women's underwear.
Giorgio Armani called the former "Posh Spice" of the Spice Girls a "style icon, a dynamic lady whose influence and recognition will add great excitement" to the ad campaign.
David Beckham has just agreed to move to Milan, Italy's fashion capital, on a three-month loan to AC Milan starting in January.
