Emporio Armani Underwear scored a GOAL!... out of the ground when selected as models the super footballers David Beckham (Leytonstone, London, May 2nd,1975) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Funchal, Madeira, Portugal, February 5th, 1985) all of that before the World Championship of Football in South Africa.
The Footballers came to the runway and scored another goal, nevertheless none of them touched a football.
“Beks” signed a contract as Armani´s boy the summer of 2008, and has been replaced by another super, even younger: the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo in the new collection 2010.
The British earned a little sum of 28 million Euros, “just by wearing a pair of underwear and he had earned more money posing than playing football”.
Armani wanted to increase the sales, especially in The United States and they got lucky with the popularity of the players.
“I feel honestly ashamed when I see those kinds of adverts. It was pretty difficult, to undress in a room full of person, but of course… one gets used to it” declared Beckham, also known as a metro sexual icon.
It does not matter if Portugal and England teams went home; their career in the runway is going very nicely.
Not even an injury stopped Beckham. On May he went to support the British troops in Afghanistan, “a tour in the Marilyn Monroe´s way”.
A curious reader commented that Cristiano Ronaldo, known as CR 7, earns 13 million Euros and even what is curios indeed many people consider it is not too much!!! How much money will he earn doing this job for Armani?
“Showing off a face that makes girls go crazy, Cristiano delights once more to many people with his smoking hot body and his well shaped abdomen muscles, wearing the new underwear proposed by Giorgio Armani”.
Model of Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans, spring-summer collection 2010, Cristiano Ronaldo underwent a photo session in Los Angeles with the photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot. What a sacrifice!!!! The images traveled the entire world. And there are some people that recommend keeping these pictures away from the traffic lights, just to avoid accidents…
“Cristiano says that he got used to pose for the camera, since we can see him a little bit more relaxed than the previous pictures.”
“In one of the many pictures we can see the football star resting in an armchair wearing the new jeans of the new collection, showing off an abdomen nice indeed. In the other picture, he shows his body wearing only underwear with the trademark´s logo”.
It seems that the Brazilian virtuoso Kaká does not go that far, but Armani did not wasted time and used him as model of the new jeans, where he also shows other things, isn´t it?
According to a conducted survey about the “sexiest footballers” many people think the hottest are Kaká, the Spaniards Iker Casillas and Fernando “el niño” Torres, the Paraguayan Roque Santa Cruz and the prodigious Uruguayan Diego Forlán.
Everyone trying to get, at least one of the many millions of this universe.
(The Guarani Roque Santa Cruz, a free gesture to the cameras?)
