Anne Hathaway is rumored to have taken up a deal with fashion designer Marc Jacobs which may see her substitute Victoria Beckham as his fashion model. The actress has become an acquaintance with Jacobs, who reportedly promised to dress the actress up for her future red-carpet events. And Hathaway might even supersede Beckham, who modeled for Jacob's campaigns this past year, in his approaching ads if their partnership shows to be successful. An informant states to a celebrity tabloid, "Marc and Anne have fashioned a firm but really intense friendly relationship and they are going to begin doing public showings jointly before long. "Anne has not contracted yet to do any advertising only, by dressing her, Marc can instill his fashion line with a new but famous face and Anne can restore her image. "If it succeeds, Anne would be glad to pose for some of Marc's crusades." Anne became a brand representative for cosmetics heavyweights Lancome this past year.
