More ads from the new series of Marc Jacobs ads featuring Victoria Beckham – cheeky and fun and more reason for you to worship her. Again and again, she is endlessly entertaining.

As for conceiving the idea behind the campaign, Marc said he was aware what the initial reaction would be, and decided to play that up:

“People will think it"s an odd choice for me to have made, and people will think it"s odd for (Victoria) to do. I mean, (she’s) not really my girl, although I never think that I have one. And I said (to her), "I like the idea of you being this product, and you being this product that Marc Jacobs producing, like a doll or something.”

Of course describing Posh as a doll is perfect. She is, after all, completely plastic, even to the soul…which is why she loved the end result:

"The images are humorous and ironic. You can"t be afraid to experiment with fashion, especially when working with Marc and Juergen (the photographer) — you have to push the envelope and show a different side.”

When asked about her personal favourite, Mrs Beckham offered:

"Marc is a genius. I completely trusted his vision and the opportunity to work with Juergen again after so many years was a privilege. Truth be told, I love them all. If I have to pick favorites, it"s the package series: me coming out of the box in the gray knit dress shot with the hat, as well as the image of the oversize shopping bag. Certainly, if you can"t get locked inside a Marc Jacobs store, then trapped inside a Marc bag has got to be the next best thing."

So now here’s the question – can Victoria Beckham make Marc Jacobs’s reverse heel shoe the must-have accessory this year?
