One of the great fashion friendships of our time also has a great origin story.
Marc Jacobs and Victoria Beckham have been besties for years, but who would've thought that they initially became friends after Posh was spotted with a fake Louis Vuitton handbag?!
Marc recalls how it all went down:
"When we did the graffiti bags with Stephen Sprouse there was a cover of a British newspaper with Posh Spice wearing a counterfeit one. As soon as it was produced, we sent her a real one. I hardly dreamed that my ultimate goal would be to have Posh Spice carrying a Louis Vuitton handbag. It was kind of funny."
We never, ever, EVER thought we'd see the words "Posh Spice" and "counterfeit handbag" in the same sentence, especially in the same sentence coming out of Marc Jacobs's mouth!
We are gonna give Victoria the benefit of the doubt and say that she probably had no idea she was carrying a fake Louis.
It's a fashion crime of the highest order!!!
But, at least some good came out of it!
Aren't these two just so cute together?
