Last night, a slew of Hollywood’s finest ladies took to the red carpet in London for Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards and whether or not they delivered any glamour is up for debate. Rita Ora put on the most ritz, wearing a silver and tulle confection by Marchesa. Others offered a series of shorter hemlines, and a whole lotta pants.
It’s time to rethink your next Victoria Beckham-inspired ensemble and self-diagnose. The Spice Girl-cum-fashion designer has been the cause of widespread epidemic: Poshitis.
We sure hope so. We know the spritely 38-year-old became famous for footie in the first place, but we wouldn’t mind if his just-announced retirement from the game opened more time in his schedule for hanging around sans shirt. Of course everyone’s calling dibs on David Beckham now that he’ll be stepping off the pitch, so let’s dig in for a little speculation.
Well, that’s one way to do it.
It’s been more than 15 years since Victoria Beckham covered US Vogue, and yet we remember it like it was yesterday. Yes, this is probably because January 1998 was right at the height of our Spice Girls obsession, and seeing the fivesome on the front of the fashion bible was something of a dream come true, but we’ll always have a soft spot for that particular issue. Which is just one of the reasons we’re excited to hear that the artist formerly known as Posh Spice may be covering the title yet again, but this time all by her lonesome.
It’s Victoria Beckham’s 39th birthday today! And oh how far she’s come. To celebrate her big day, we’re taking a look back at her modeling days, although this time we’re not going all the way back to her cheesy teenage glamour shots, but to 2003, when she donned satin jackets and booty shorts in a campaign for Jay-Z’s label, Rocawear. Needless to say, they’re pretty great — AND one of them co-stars an Afro-sporting Naomi Campbell!
We’ll never tire of looking at old photos of Victoria Beckham. Sure, she’s now one of the most glamorous women in the world, but a quick look back in time reveals cheesy teen modeling shots, ridiculous getups, and beauty flubs galore. The Spice Girl-turned-designer told Hello magazine that at least one of these things is going to remain firmly in the past, however. Do you think she’s making the right call?
Models have to be prepared to get themselves into some pretty strange situations on the job. But you’d think certain people would get a pass, namely Kate Moss, who, after 25 years of modeling, can pretty much say “no” to whomever she so pleases. Victoria Beckham likewise doesn’t strike us all that easily persuadable. And yet, Juergen Teller has captured both women in less than glamorous poses. How did he do it?
Victoria Beckham is launching her namesake label’s first e-commerce site in February, and to hype it up, she’s released several teaser videos, one of which is completely seizure-inducing.
Do we sound bored? We’re not.
These days, Victoria Beckham comes in just behind Anna Wintour on the list of people we would least expect to see leaving the house in knockoff designer duds. But not so back in the early aughts, before Beckham had truly exploded on to the fashion scene, and was photographed while carrying her son and *gasp* a fake Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse graffiti handbag.
We have always loved the ever-fashionable Victoria Beckham. We wanted to be her back when she was Posh Spice (who are we kidding, we still want to be her!) and now we adore her style. But it turns out things weren’t always so perfect for Beckham!
Spice Girls reunion! Spice Girls reunion! Well, almost.
You saw a sneak peak of the highly-anticipated, Karl Lagerfeld-lensed editorial earlier this week, but now Victoria Beckham‘s entire spread and cover for French Elle are out. Check out the rest of the images after the jump!
Earlier this summer, Victoria Beckham tweeted some behind-the-scenes pics of her Karl Lagerfeld-lensed photoshoot for French Elle inside Coco Chanel‘s home on Rue Cambon. We got a glimpse at the fancy hair accessories and clothes, which were Chanel couture, naturally, and now, we’ve got another sneak peek at her spread.
Ok, let’s get this out of the way — we think speculating about the contents of a woman’s womb is pretty tacky. But sometimes a girl’s gotta stoop, so stoop we will. News of Victoria Beckham‘s maybe-pregnancy is making the rounds right now, backed up by reports of the 38-year-old designer’s strange eating habits as of late, refusal to drink alcohol, and a quote she gave Glamour in September saying she’d “never say never” to popping out another baby Becks.
Before she was a celebrated fashion designer, before she married a world famous soccer player — hell, before she was even Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham was just another aspiring teenage model. And we’ve got the pics to prove it.
As much as we’re dreading this year’s Fashion’s Night Out, we were pretty amazed at its new PSA. It failed to hype us up for FNO, but it did make us giggle. The normal fashion crew of Marc Jacobs, Karlie Kloss, Victoria Beckham, Jessica Paré, and Solange Knowles make appearances in the video. But wait, hold the phone — is that Tyson Chandler?? Yeah, he’s in it too! And why is Darren Criss singing a Madonna song?
