You may have thought the weekend’s biggest news was the hurricane, but there was something even more shocking afoot: People magazine reports that Victoria Beckham had been spotted in flats! Forget telltale signs of climate change via drastic weather patterns; the apocalypse is surely upon us when Posh Spice is willing to be caught on camera without her signature stilettos.
Okay look, at the risk of being typecast as a fashion allergic feminazi, I have to just come right out and say it: I am, generally speaking, against high heels. Why, you might ask, have I joined the ranks of sensible aunts and foot doctors everywhere? It’s about as simple as this: I don’t think women should participate in activities that physically harm them or curb their capacity to get up and go should the situation call for it. I believe there are less limiting ways to look pretty.
I get that they’re sexy as hell. Keep reading »
Nobody tells Victoria Beckham that she’s not allowed to wear the highest of sky high heels whenever she wants. That’s practically sacrilege! But owing to complications from the recent birth of her daughter Harper Seven, Beckham’s doctors have requested that Posh stick to flats. It seems Beckham suffered a slipped disk during her pregnancy, and the heels threaten to significantly worsen her condition. So look for a significantly shorter Victoria during upcoming fashion week. Already, it seems, fashion sites are forecasting a flat trend. We’ll believe it when we see it — and Beckham actually following doctors orders. After all, this is a woman who donned 7-inch Louboutin heels while she was pregnant. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
The celebrity stork had a pretty darn busy weekend. Two highly anticipated famous babes arrived within hours of each other—Victoria and David Beckham gave birth to a baby girl, while Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy had a baby boy. While we don’t know much about Kate and Matt’s baby, besides the fact that he is healthy, Posh and Becks were willing to divulge a little more information. Their babe was born early Sunday morning and the two said they were “over the moon” to finally have a girl, after three boys. They also announced their baby’s name—Harper Seven Beckham—leading many to speculate whether they named their wee one after Harper Lee of To Kill A Mockingbird fame or after the magazine Harper’s Bazaar.
Regardless, I think Victoria, David, Kate, and Matthew should take the simultaneous arrival of their little bundles of joy as a sign. Keep reading »
Although Victoria Beckham’s baby bump has been under wraps for most of her pregnancy, fans got a glimpse when David Beckham posted a candid black-and-white photo of his wife sunbathing on his Facebook page.
The mom-to-be donned oversized sunglasses, a black bikini and sans her signature five-inch heels.
“Took this pic of Victoria while she wasn’t looking,” David wrote. “She looks amazing, so close now to the baby being born!” Read more…

“Obviously, we’re very lucky to be expecting again, and this is the first time I’m going to say it: It’s a little girl. We’re still in shock. Obviously, having three boys, you kind of expect another one, so finding out a little girl is in there is surprising, but, obviously, we are over the moon.”

“[If I] don’t have a girl this time, then maybe I’ll be lucky enough and have a girl the next time. There could be [a fifth]. Who knows? But a sixth? Well, I’m not Angelina. I don’t know. I mean, come on.”
—Victoria Beckham opens up to CNN about being preggers with baby numero four and how badly she hopes this one will be a girl. If she and hubby David Beckham do have a fifth child, here’s hoping they form a pop group, a la the Partridge Family. [NY Post]

Victoria and David Beckham will soon have enough children for their own soccer team, as the power couple are expecting their fourth child. The baby is expected to arrive in the summer. Victoria and David already have three boys, so we’d imagine fashion maven Victoria wants a little girl. David has also expressed his desire for a daughter. “I really want more kids and I hope it happens soon. I want a little girl. That would be amazing,” he said in 2009. [PopEater] Keep reading »
I love a meta-commentary as much as the next person, but some things are just tacky — invoking the Nazis while discussing health care reform, for example. T-shirts emblazoned with the words “I love anorexia” also fit the bill. Keep reading »
“I don’t really notice that he’s [David Beckham] got a high-pitched voice. I just think he’s so goddamn perfect that people have to find something wrong with him. We were about to go out somewhere the other day, and he was sending an email. He was sitting at the end of the bed, and he had no clothes on whatsoever. I was getting out of the shower, and I just stood there looking at him. He was all tan. Has all those tattoos, which I love. Hadn’t done his hair. He just naturally looks good all the time. He never looks like s**t in the morning. Never. So he’s sitting there sending his e-mails, all ripped. Not an ounce of fat on him. And I thought, you done good, girl. I sure wasn’t thinking of his high-pitched voice.”
