“I can’t put makeup on when Harper’s around, because she would try and do the same immediately. … [The kids] lead a very privileged life but they don’t get everything they ask for. We always tell them how lucky they are. [Cruz once asked], ‘Why is it good to be famous, mum?’ and my answer was, ‘When you’re famous, you have a certain power to do good things.’ That’s how we started talking about charity. Cruz was really sweet and said, ‘When people listen to what I say, I could spread some good messages.’ It was a nice conversation to have with my child who’s only eight years old.”
— Could David and Victoria Beckham be the best celebrity parents of all time? Mayhaps. I would never expect Posh to be such a doting, grounded mother, but every time she talks about her kids, she comes across as being very, very normal. Her decision not to apply makeup in front of her one-year-old daughter is a testament to how committed she is to letting her kids just be kids. Adopt me? [Vogue UK]
Hold up. The Victoria Beckham, in an outfit that could actually be recreated by a mere mortal? For real! Sure, Posh’s look probably cost somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 million dollars, and this one will only set you back $288, but still. They’re almost the same! This neutral look, accented with a flash of bright orange, looks fabulous on VB — and it’ll look fabulous on you, too. (Sorry, perfect baby angel child accessory not included at this time.)

Amazingly, Fashion People were undeterred by the foot-plus of snow we received this weekend, and New York Fashion Week carried on as usual.

It’s not every day that Karl Lagerfeld deems a fashionista worthy of being photographed in Coco Chanel’s iconic former Paris home at 31 Rue Cambon, so it’s kind of remarkable that he chose Victoria Beckham over someone like, say, Blake Lively. I totally thought Blake was his dress-up doll of choice these days. I do have to hand it to Posh for her seamless transition from Spice Girl and football WAG into a well-respected style icon and designer; there aren’t many former pop stars who ever enjoy the same level of high-fashion success. Victoria tweeted photos this week from a recent shoot for Elle France, where she appears alongside Lagerfeld modeling pieces from her new eyewear collection. What she doesn’t model, however, is pants, and that is completely understandable — if my legs looked like that, I wouldn’t wear pants, either. [Celebitchy]
