Don't Mess With Victoria Beckham


Victoria Beckham might not ever achieve her goal of making the cover of Vogue in the US, but other than that she is a force to be reckoned with as Katie Holmes and Katherine Jenkins are discovering. Victoria had her fashion week date set in stone for a very long time. Then, as I told you last month, Katie Holmes not only chose the same date, but also the same time and was confident press would come see her because they wanted Tom Cruise scoop and lots of photos. Well, Victoria made some calls and some threats and the next thing you know, Katie Holmes moved her show to an entirely different day. As for Katherine Jenkins? Last month I wrote a post about how Katherine Jenkins thought the internet was accusing her of having an affair with David Beckham. No one said anything and she looked really strange going on Twitter and other places denying that she had an affair with David. Well, Victoria thought that was as strange as the rest of us so has made it clear to Katherine that she does not want her to wear any more of Victoria's dresses.

I kind of love Posh. I think she is hilarious.

strawberrygirl said...

I love VB. I think she's so fierce. She's actually a very warm person in interviews.

car54 said...

Go VB....Katie is no threat to you as a designer and Katherine looks like a ho for doing that on Twitter.

babo said...

I m like everybody else, 1st impressions are crucial. And the 1st time I saw Posh was in a Spice Girls video (like everybody else).
So many years later, I ll finally fess up: she commands my full respect! Team Victoria all the way.

katsm0711 said...

I love VB!! And her clothes are beautiful and well enough made that you actually see them on the red carpet, unlike pretty much any other celeb clothing 'line'

Audrey said...

Go VB! I like her style and designs.

Sarah said...

Katie's victory over Tom left her with a big head. Going toe to toe in the fashion world with someone with a bigger name and bankability was foolish.
I wonder why Katie wanted that fight.

TV Junkie said...

I have to say that I am kind of loving how VB has somehow changed the minds of a lot of people who previously just thought she was a cold bitch. Myself included. Go Victoria!

katsm0711 said...

I think it was the revealed blind about VB watching a street performer singing, VB said you're a better singer than I ever was and dropped $500 in her guitar case that made the remaining stragglers fall in love with her.

stephani said...

Huh. Remember when Posh and Katie were friends?

auntliddy said...

Totally team victoria. I dont know what it is about her, but i like her and all her quirky ways, love the fam- just plain like her.

MC said...

Just woke up. Thought that said Katherine Jackson for one very confusing moment.

shauniebear said...

Okay, this is going to sound extra bitchy but I broke my hand last night and I'm on pain meds and a little wonky...anywho, someone needs to tell Katie that she should wear pants like that more often. They hide her very unfortunate looking legs. Lord, I apologize....

parissucksliterally said...

I like Posh also. I fear for her daughter, growing up with a Mom with such body issues, but I am glad she spooked Katie. I am tired of Katie being looked at as some type of Heroine. Bitch knew she was selling her soul when she married Tom.

Maya Sambora said...

I also would like deny the The rumors that I am having an affair with David Beckham ... I mean , as if...! why would people think I would hit that if I had the chance!

IDoTheRobot said...

I love VB.

__-__=__ said...

Love her! Get well shauniebear. Hope you feel better soon. Maybe some frozen peas for that??

hotchacha said...

Go, Posh!

MISCH said...

Hold it Lilo is on the phone denying rumors that she was with David Beckham.....

smashbash said...

Shaunie- feel better girl :( how did you do that?

Coriander Shea said...

Posh is one of those celebs that I never thought I'd want to read news about bc our personalities are so different.....but she is so endearing. I've got mad respect for her. Her dedication to her children is inspiring. She makes it so obvious how much she loves them.

MrsPMFU said...

Shauniebear- OUCH! Sorry about your hand :(
As for your opinion on KH's legs...I totally agree and always thought it was just me who thought that! lol

g.strathmore said...

@MC, that is hilarious. I would pay $50 to see Katherine Jackson release a statement that she hasn't had an affair with David Beckham.

Regarding Posh, I still think she's a weirdo. No one with that kind of perpetually sour face is normal. She's got some serious issues.

Brenda L said...

LOLing at MISCH

Sandy said...

I love Victoria because she is a veritable quiet force of nature. Holmes couldn't be cowed by Scientology, but she ran like hell from Beckham. Heh.

Plus she's the mother of that baby goddess, Harper. Anyone who popped out such a cute little chubette is aces with me. And I love her brothers, too.

ButterKwup said...

Lol @ shauniebear. Her legs are awkward, but unfortunately I think this picture is old. Otherwise she would be wearing her suede fan booties. I hate those things with the fire of a thousand suns.

Get well soon! I've had a broken hand and it suuuuucks.

yodelay said...

I really like VB. I actually didn't know much about her other than she was the luckiest woman in the world, until I watched her short-lived reality show. She seems to be of very good humor and eaaygoing.

portlandjewel said...

I've been thinking that Katie Holmes may have problems with her feet. Perhaps that is why she wears those weird booties all the time (maybe they have some type of custom made orthodics or something) and that could also be why her legs are a little off as well. I'm new to the gossip scene but have fallen in love with Suri's burn book. Katie wears those boots A LOT. With everything she wears! It can't possibly be because she looks in the mirror and thinks they look good.

cece said...

Hmmm...I was thinking they made her legs look even bigger. :/

RenoBlondee said...

Thank you @parissucksliterally! I don't get why people consider Katie a hero now. I think she's very shady.

Krissie said...

Surprised everyone likes Vicky so much. She pissed me off to the extreme when she told that story about how her infant daughter was extremely excited to go into a Prada store. What a bunch of bull. Infants do not notice or care whether they are in a Prada store or a Wal-Mart. It's very obvious that Victoria has already decided her daughter is going to be a girly-girl fashion plate and it doesn't matter to her what Harper actually wants. I detest parents who carve out identities for their children instead of letting the kids be who they want to be.

Kimberly said...

Some people dspend hours at the gym.and have thick thigh s. Fuck you very much

Jessie said...

Love. This.

It should be interesting to see what industry types do go to Holmes' show.

whocaresnow12 said...

OMG! Seriously? Katie Holmes never had her show at the same time as Victoria. Michael Kors has had that honor all along. Even VB people issued a statement that this didn't happen.

DewieTheBear said...

I'm honestly shocked that Beckham hasn't been on the cover of U.S. Vogue. I"m not her biggest fan but she does have a lot of style, certainly tons more than most of the dilettantes and celebrities that have gotten the cover (sometimes, more than once). Does she have a spat with Wintour I'm missing?

chachi said...

Just ate another warm blueberry muffin to reconfirm that I have no Posh-type body issues. Nope. Definitely none. *licking buttery fingers*

lanasyogamama said...

Ugh, those suede booties. Girl...

I love VB, and I totally get why she doesn't smile. She has kind of strange teeth, and she looks a lot more elegant with her mouth closed.

The fact that Katie has a fashion line is the biggest joke, she has horrible taste, always has. Tom tried to make her into a fashionista, remember he even cut her hair VB style at one point. It's not gonna happen!

Mango said...

@ Krissie - I hadn't heard that story about VB, Harper and Prada - ridiculous projecting! Like when Angelina Jolie said that she adopted Zahara because 3 year-old Maddox wanted a baby sister from Africa. Bitch, please! Like he even knew what/where Africa was!

I do like her though and am surprised that she actually carried all her kids herself instead of inventing some bullshit reason to hire a surrogate *side eye to Camille Grammer*.

LetLoveRule said...

Yeah, I honestly don't think Katie's legs are that terrible, but I like firm, smooth, 'juicy,' legs...Ciara's are the ultimate if you ask me. Sorry to get into my personal tastes, but since Sir Mix-a-Lot isn't here I guess I will stand up for him ;)

I think Katie just needs a little booty to balance it out.

g.strathmore said...

I've seen Posh's teeth. They're not bad, more like bunny teeth. The fact that she's so obsessed with her appearance that she never smiles because of something as minor as that proves to me that she has major body/esteem issues.

Me said...

well, victoria isn't squat to me. if i owned her dresses and she said she no longer wanted me wearing them, i would ignore it. who the F does vicki think she is? if your husband can't keep his dick in his pants, take it uo with him. what's she going to do, take on everyone with a hole and a heartbeat? your problem is AT HOME love, start your clean up there.

Krissie said...

@Mango-oh dear, I like Angie, but that is a dopey thing to say! Haven't heard about that one.

shauniebear said...

@Kimberly - Klassy!

Em Dahling said...

Victoria is Queen Bitch status. Katie was stupid to leave her friendship, if she did.

Fairmaiden327 said...

Personalize much? LOL

califblondy said...

Krissy, do you think Her Poshness was joking? Her sense of humor is a little different.

I can't help it, I love her and she'll always be major in my book.

yodelay said...

LMAO chachi. I think I'll try that, because I'm not sure.

And yes califblondy, Major!

Krissie said...

@califblondy I don't think she was. She seemed really proud of the story. I thought it was quite gross.

As for this story about the fashion shows, meh, I doubt Katie and Victoria were ever real friends anyway. I think it was all for the cameras.

g.strathmore said...

Yeah, I think Katie and Posh were friends as much as Beyonce and Kim Kardashian were friends, i.e. for the sake of their men.

WUWT? said...

Wow, can't wear her dresses anymore--that's punishment!

And that's punishment for DENYING an affair! What would the punishment be if she had confirmed an affair?

Sarah said...

@Dewie I don't think Anna has ever got over Victoria being lauded as a fashion icon in the British press while spending all her time wearing trashy slogan t-shirts, tight jeans, bolt-ons, extensions and masses of fake tan. Also there are loads of rumours that Roland Mouret actually designed the first range of VB dresses; Victoria has stated that she doesn't draw. However, Anna did attend her most recent show so who knows, maybe the ice is thawing.

Beta said...

Katie's team finally realized what a huge mistake it was to put the show at the same time. With Wintour and other fashion forces scheduled to go to posh's show, it was going to be a major disaster for the Katie&Yang line, I don't even think Posh needed to threat anyone.
As for the girl, I can understand Posh being tired of Zlist celebs trying to make a name saying they're banging or not her husband
As they say in Italy, you clean your dirty laundry at home.

Beta said...

Vogue US hasn't put her on the cover but they've published a long article on her line, so I'd say that Wintour has given her seal of approval:

Silly Girl said...

I think the whole thing is Team Tom's PR machine in effect. Katie and Posh were friends because of their hubby's, but that's probably the extent of it. And thus, his PR machine making it seem like Katie is pathetic and a wannabe. All that being said, is this all about a fashion show?! Katie, please.....sit down and just try to focus on one thing, your acting, for now.
As far as the booties, they could be a huge FU, since they are SO ugly, to the whole Tom-dresss-me-so -I-look-good-for-him thing. They really are hideous, but they could be her way of middle fingering everyone.

Tuxedo Cat said...

There's two things I really respect about VB. First, she isn't afraid to try new things. Second, she learns from her mistakes.

I love the way she hasn't given up on her dream of a marriage forever. She got over David's infidelity, and has been able to fix whatever led to that.

Having a lasting marriage to a professional athlete is an accomplishment in itself, but also says a great deal about David Beckham. His soccer team absolutely hated her (too distracting) and he sided with her.

With the new "I didn't cheat with David" chick, VB acted quickly, separating herself from this attention-seeking opera singer /whatever.

She insists on having kids, which people are so quick to criticize "selfish".

She studied fashion in her own way, and has become a viable designer in a cutthroat field. She's been smart enough to specialize in a certain type of dress, and is not spreading herself too thin while her children are young.

I think she sees The Spice Girls as an unfortunate, unhappy time in her life, and if it hadn't been for the Olympics, I don't think she would have gone through it.
