It’s the changing of the models at Armani this week. First Megan Fox made her sexy debut, replacing Victoria Beckham. Now, the design house is offering a sneak peek at their new men’s campaigns, featuring David Beckham‘s hot, new replacement in the Emporio Armani Underwear campaign as well as the Armani Jeans ads. Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo strips down for print ads and billboards rolling out in February. ”I am very flattered to be asked to represent Armani,” Cristiano said in a statement. “I am very pleased with the pictures we have done together — they are certainly striking and are full of an attitude and spirit that I can relate to.” We couldn’t agree more. Tell us: What do you think of the new ads?–Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester
