Though many still think of Victoria as either a) Posh Spice or b) David Beckham’s wife, she’s been working hard to gain respect as a legitimate designer. On the whole, her collections have been well-received — she’s even considering relocating to New York so she can be closer to the industry. However, not everyone is rooting for the former pop star to succeed.
Victoria showed off her fall 2011 collection at a small presentation attended by all sorts of important editors on Sunday. Givhan called the collection “lovely,” and noted that Victoria “seemed a bit nervous.” You see, she literally presented the collection, describing each piece as it made its way down the runway — “and the cool girls turned on her.”
But if one might have thought the audience would have been encouraging and well, equally mature… you would be so terribly wrong. There were muffled giggles, knowing glances, and plenty of eye-rolling over the non-stop narration. Certainly, Beckham’s chatter was a throwback to a 1950s fashion industry. But that was her point—to make the presentation more personal and without the hype of the modern business.
Woman-on-woman cattiness? That’s pretty much the opposite of girl power. Check out some of the looks from Victoria Beckham’s fall 2011 collection below. Do you think she was deserving of such a response?
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
