Victoria Beckham Has Lost Her Mind



A show of hands here who think Victoria Beckham and Jennifer Lopez are the same dress size. Yeah, I don't see any hands either. In an interview with 10, Victoria says she and Jennifer are the same dress size. "Actually, the one I tried on yesterday was the one Jennifer wore. And who'd have thought I'd be the same size as Jennifer Lopez!"

Umm, I don't think anyone would have thought it. I think she could try on all the dresses in the world that Jennifer Lopez wears but I don't think the reverse is going to hold true. Is this so we stop saying how skinny Victoria is? Maybe enough people will say she is the same size as Jennifer Lopez and the world would believe it? I think she should have gone up in increments. Start with a twig, then a thin branch, then Calista Flockhart. Baby steps. You can't go straight from twig to Jennifer. It doesn't work.

Dress must have been very stretchy :D

RocketQueen said...

Lol! If she believed that were even remotely true, it would have sent her on a frantic, non-eating binge to lose all her "fat".
Methinks she doth protest those eating disorder rumours too much!

Now! said...

Victoria's dresses are a massive rip-off of the designer Roland Mouret. I think she took some of his employees when she started her firm. It's hard to tell which dresses are hers and which are his - except that his came first.

I have a Roland Mouret dress and it is NOT stretchy.

*ditto RQ!!!*

Did y'all see the D-Listed post about how Housewife Kim Z. is selling her dresses on ebay and called them a "size 8 fits like a size 4." LMAO! Really, I'm skinny, my clothes are just labeled wrong!

nancer said...

what a stupid thing to lie about. does she think we're all blind?

MISCH said...

YES...A NEW SPACE AGE SUPER STRETCH FABRIC...ONE SIZE FROM 00 TO 4XX....
EVERYONE CAN WEAR VICTORIA'S CLOTHES..
I HAVE A FRIEND WHO WORKS FOR ONE OF THE EXPENSIVE JEAN MANUFACTURES...THEY HAVE TO CUT THE LABELS OUT OF THE JEANS THEY SEND JLO
AND REPLACE WITH SMALLER SIZE LABELS...

Ooooh Shazzzba that's what they did for Oprah many years ago when she was bragging about being a size 12 but actually was quite larger.


As far as Vicky's comments, my response is either sit down and shut up or will someone make the Beckhams just disappear. Please.

Cheryl said...

My size 10 fits like a size 0. I just lost 40 pounds on the Victoria Beckham delusional diet. Thanks Posh!

ballyhoo. said...

i wonder how much jlo paid her to say that?

Linnea said...

Hahahaha, thats just hilarious!

clatie said...

maybe she has such severe bdd, she actually believes
this.

Maja With a J said...

I don't think Victoria Beckham and J-Lo are the same size...but remember that Oprah episode where she had 10 women that were all size 10 line up next to each other in the same outfit. 2 people who wear the same size clothing could have really different bodies. That's why it's so hard to find clothes that fit you properly.

Ugh, shopping sucks for that exact reason, Harriet Hellfire.

Stacy said...

B*tch please.

chihuahuense said...

That is like those diet commercials where someone says "I lost 20 pounds and 4 dress sizes" and I'm like "where the fuck are you going where 20 pounds is 4 dress sizes?" Or when bigger celebrities talk about their "before" selves and say "I was ginormous! I was 150 pounds and so unhappy." And show you a picture where they are CLEARLY pushing 300---unless they are 3 feet tall.

Anonymous said...

I know, chihuahuense! In a way that sort of thing is just as harmful as what we were talking about the other day, how the magazine photoshopped whichever Kardashian just had the kid to make it look like she was totally back in shape. Some poor chick works her butt off to lose 20 lb., then feels like a total failure when she only goes down one size.

LOL @ Cheryl.

Elle Kaye said...

She probably wasn't lying. VB definitely could try on and wear JLo's dress. The quote is not JLo saying that she tried on and fit one of VB's dresses. Any small person could fit into a size 8 but not any size 8 person could fit into a 0 or 2. She's just using trickery and proving to be smarter that I'd expected. Well played Posh, well played.

lmnop123 said...

Elle Kaye she did lie. She said "And who'd have thought I'd be the same size as Jennifer Lopez!"

She's claiming to be the same size as JLo. If she had said who would have thought that I could fit JLo's dress than that would have been a mere play on words.

hey guys, i worked in clothing retail for a long time and i would always have customers complaining about sizing and not being able to find stuff that fits. i know this isn't exactly on topic but i saw a few comments that reminded me of those days. there are only two rules to finding clothing that fits:

1) TRY, TRY, TRY IT ON! there are no industry standards when it comes to sizing, that's why i can wear a 4 at banana republic and a 10 at forever 21. NEVER get hung up on sizes - it's just a number on a label! I would have customers fall in love with an item but refuse to buy it because it ran small and they would have to try on a larger size. that's just silly! the most important thing to remember when trying to find clothes that fit is you'll have to be willing to try lots of stuff on. also, mix it up! things look very different on a hanger so don't judge before you've tried it. i always take at least one thing into the fitting room that i wouldn't normally try - you'd be surprised!

2) NIP/TUCK IT! tailors are your best friends ever. there are waaaaay too many body types for things to fit everyone like a glove, that's why there are tailors. expensive stores often provide it for free, but i take my cheap stuff to a tailor which is still cheaper than buying expensive clothing. (i'm VERY cheap when it comes to clothes but i love shopping and fashion)


now get out there and hit some sales!

JLo looks like she has put on a few pounds.

Merlin D. Bear said...

What didn't get mentioned was that it took 6 hours to find Victoria after she had put on JLo's dress.
They were about to form up a search party, but then someone straightened out a wrinkle and found Vics.

Mango said...

I think that for some strange reason unknown to us, Posh was sucking up to JLo. Or was having a laugh at JLo's expense because it is so patently untrue. (I like scenario #2!)

@ Shazzzba, wasn't JLo mentioned in that blind awhile back about the diva who had staff replace all of her clothing tags with tags denoting smaller sizes?

Incidentally, Posh looks soooo much better since she had those horrible implants replaced!

Amit! said...

@Elle Kaye: My thoughts exactly!

Seachica said...

Maybe they wear the same size after JLo's handlers tear out the size label from her clothing, re-embroider them to show size 0, and then re-sew the label into the clothing.

You just know JLo has her handlers do that!

Jen said...

sunnyside123 - JLo is standing next to the smallest woman in the world. Put her next to a regular person her same height and you'd see she is quite small.
Actually, JLo above the waist is close to VB's size. Her regular-sized bottom half looks big in relation to her very small top half.

selenakyle said...

Her "who'd have thought it" comment might get taken the wrong way by J.Lo...who might then get all Pwer-oh-Reecan on a bitch's ass for going there.

LauPow said...

Their heads have inflated to the same size, that's for sure.

Anna Geletka said...

Second Ballyhoo's comment! I also work in retail and the other thing I see is that people REFUSE to go up or down a size. Some size 0's are convinced that they're an 8, and vice versa. ASK the salesperson - is this fitting me correctly? Should I go up or down a size? Any good salesperson will help you find something that fits and flatters.

RJ said...

I HATE it when skinny people won't just be grateful that they are skinny. Even if they are skinny through God knows what means. Don't they know that we have eyes?

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

God help me, but my first thought has nothing to do w/either of the ladies involved per se--it's their shoes. I know Louboutins have the red soles, but who the hell is doing shoes w/blue soles?

MCH said...

@ Harriet Hellfire, I think I actually saw that episode of Oprah, so true, true. Its like Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. :)

Clearly, they are not the same "size".

PotPourri said...

You've got to give it to La Lopez. She has always been just right.

Instripid said...

Now that Victoria Beckham is rockin' it for Xenu, she has to suck up to her fellow celebs so she can lure them into the fold. It's part of the $cientology manifesto (or manifest destiny).

captivagrl said...

NEVVA

sz 0 and sz 8
and the sz 0 is loose

Lian said...

Robin, I wondered the same thing, and had to look it up. Apparently they're YSL's. Although, I know Louboutin made a few pairs of blue soled ones a while back.

heatherhug said...

I can not stand the expression Jennifer Lopez makes in ALL her pictures. This smoky glare with her lips slightly parted that you know she thinks is making her look HOT. Just smile already!

caydian said...

Does J-Lo wear a butt corset to smush it in?
