The latest whispers are that Anne Hathaway will replace Victoria Beckham as the face of Marc Jacobs.

"Marc and Anne have forged a fast but very intense friendship and they're going to start doing public appearances together soon," a friend of the actress has revealed. "Anne hasn't signed up to do any advertising yet but, by dressing her, Marc can infuse his line with a fresh but famous face and Anne can revamp her image. If it works well, Anne would be happy to model for some of Marc's campaigns."

In addition to a possible lucrative deal with the label, the 26-year-old has also recently agreed to play Judy Garland in a new movie. 2009 looks set to be a bumper year for Anne.
