It’s not exactly a sex tape, but this new 22-second ad for Victoria and David Beckham‘s fifth fragrance, Intimately Yours, is kind of titillating. It’s cute how they’re both in tuxedos. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Posh Spice chillaxes with a big ole martini on the cover of Vogue Turkey. Think she knows that martinis are packed with calories? Best to keep that detail a secret. [Red Carpet Fashion Awards] Keep reading »
It’s the only time you’ll see Victoria Beckham not wearing five-and-a-half-inch heels, so of course it’s a cartoon. Posh Spice lent her voice to her kids’ favorite TV show, “SpongeBob Square Pants” as the mermaid, Queen Amphitrite.
I don’t see the resemblance, though, seeing as the mermaid queen isn’t scowling. [The Sun UK] Keep reading »
Though she’s the queen of fitted dresses and slim silhouettes, Victoria Beckham is expanding her design portfolio into a new realm. Instead of sticking to sophisticated dresses and curve-hugging designs, Posh will enter the world of menswear, where the emphasis will be on tailoring. “I always design things that I love and I’ve been obsessed with tailoring—I love a great jacket,” she said of her latest design move. With all the celebrity designers forcing their opinions onto the fashion world, it’s hard to be taken seriously, but Victoria is doing her best to show her interest and involvement. While she could simply hire a designer, Victoria actually spent time studying under the tailors at Savile Row, learning their craft to prep for her newest collection and earning major respect, at least from us.

Who does a pop diva turn to for new fashions after being outfitted by Thierry Mugler? If you’re Beyonce, then Victoria Beckham is the answer. Reportedly, Jay-Z’s little lady is so impressed with Posh’s fashion sense and newest collection, that she called her up and asked the singer turned designer to create new costumes for an upcoming concert. Now, during Beyonce’s last tour, there were enough body suits, glitter, and bling to make Liberace happy, but her look might be a bit toned down this time around given Posh’s design sensibility. Since she’s known for her form fitting dresses and long gowns, we’re assuming Beyonce’s going for a bit of a classier, uptown girl vibe. She is a married lady after all. [Mirror] Keep reading »
“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.
