“Do you know what, actually I always refer to Victoria… You’d get this very black or white feeling, either absolute adoration or not. She knows that, she’s like Marmite… You either love her or you hate her.”

We (kinda) fell for the April Fool’s news item about Lady Gaga designing for Alexander McQueen. Curses! Now, for all kinds of celebrity fashion line news that’s actually true:

“Victoria Beckham is so nasty. Why doesn’t she just go home?! Her dresses are beautiful, but I don’t care what she does. She’s mean to all the people around her. She’s too short to be a diva. We all use the same hairdressers, make-up artists, limo-drivers, and greeters at the airports in L.A. and nobody has anything nice to say about her. They say she’s rude. She can’t always just be having a bad day. Victoria Beckham should get a life. I am not a fan of outrageous consumption. I think it is vulgar.
And no-one should flaunt that they have a hundred Hermes bags. Not when people are starving. Everyone should be allowed to have a great time but she shows a distinct lack of class. I dislike Victoria Beckham. The entitlement — the total entitlement. You want to say, ‘Calm down, you were a Spice Girl.’ The arrogance when she walks into a room is astonishing.”
– Joan Rivers didn’t mince words when the topic of Victoria Beckham came up during a Closer magazine interview in 2008. We’re almost positive the comedienne still feels the same way. [Dlisted] Keep reading »
“There’s nothing good about those outfits. I wear the feathers in my relationship. If David came home dressed like that – could you imagine? Terrible.”

Can anyone keep Victoria Beckham’s body image philosophy straight? She seems to constantly flex between opposing contradictions. One second, the media is calling out her anorexic-seeming lifestyle and the next she’s quoted as being pro-curves. To be honest, our opinion of Beckham wavers as well. Sometimes she frightens us with her so-thin physique that’s nearly alien-like, but at the same time, we absolutely respect the woman’s talent and style and agree that her Fashion Week show was a hands-down success. When Posh went on “The View” yesterday to talk about her work and the fashion industry, she seemed very pro-health: “The CFDA have reached out to designers, stylists and casting directors not to work with underage models, girls that are too thin and to be more ethnically aware. And I think designers are listening. I had a casting last week and had some terribly thin girls come in and it wouldn’t have worked.” This would seem to suggest she’s not into the heroin-chic look. And yet Beckham also said, “Most of these girls are naturally thin. And I don’t think we should be discriminating against someone because they are too thin or too curvy or too large or whatever it is.” Most models are naturally thin? We’re not so sure about that.

“It’s not healthy to be jealous. I look at David and I think, “He’s so handsome and I’m so lucky to have him as a husband.” And he’s an amazing father. I don’t blame people for looking at him and finding him attractive. I mean, I do.”
