      Pencil dresses by Victoria Beckham and Diva Catwalk

      Designer Dupes: Victoria Beckham Vs Diva Catwalk

      As much as we love Victoria Beckham and her amazing dress collection, the fact that they’re: a) the price of a used car, and b) permanently sold out, anyway kind of puts the dampers on our hopes of ever owning one. Luckily, though, there’s no shortage of other brands taking inspiration from Mrs Beckham, and one of our favourites right now is Diva Catwalk. Their Mayfair dress differs from Victoria Beckham’s colourblock pencil dress in a number of small ways, but none of them detract from the overall look, which is very similar. Which do you prefer?

      Designer Dupes: navy and orange dresses by Victoria Beckham and Rare

      ‘Ello, ‘ello, ‘ello, now what have we ‘ere, then? Why, it looks like a case of Designer Dupes to us! On the left, a navy and orange pencil dress, from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2012 ready to wear collection: it cost $2,295, but the price is academic at this point, because it sold out as soon as it went on sale. On the right, meanwhile… a navy and orange pencil dress, although this time by Rare, which is available at Topshop. This one is only £49, and was still available in most sizes at the time of writing, and can also be purchased at the Rare website, should it sell out at Topshop, which, let’s face it, it probably will. Which…

      Victoria Beckham dresses at Net-a-Porter

      Fantasy Shopping: Victoria Beckham dresses exclusive to Net-a-Porter

      It’s no secret that The Fashion Police are huge fans of Victoria Beckham’s dress collections: simple lines, striking silhouettes, stunning colours – there’s just a lot to like, basically. (Well, except for the price, of course. There is that.) Some of VB’s latest collection is currently available exclusively at Net-a-Porter, and we let out little sighs of longing every time we look at the images. This is basically Dress Porn: we know we’ll never be able to afford to buy them, but it’s nice to just LOOK at them, isn’t it? That said, someone obviously is buying these. Despite the fact that the prices start at around $1,600, and the most expensive pieces won’t give you much change out of…

      Cheryl Cole in a pink Victoria Beckham dress at Pride of Britain

      Cheryl Cole wears Victoria Beckham, says she wants to be her

      So, “Cheryl Cole wears Victoria Beckham” has to be one of the strangest headlines we’ve ever typed, huh? Imagine if it was literally true, and Chezza was ACTUALLY wearing Vicky B on the red carpet! Now THAT would be a look worth talking about! Is this one, though? Well, Cheryl isn’t wearing Mrs Beckham herself, but she is wearing a long pink dress from the Victoria Beckham Spring 2011 collection. Fashion People are all excited about this, because Cheryl Cole has a somewhat “hot and cold” relationship with Victoria Beckham and her dresses, and having initially dismissed the designs as “too old”, she’s now been gushing to Grazia about how much she loves them, and how she wants to follow…

      Victoria Beckham in pink mini dress and high heeled Christian Louboutin ankle boots

      Victoria Beckham not wearing flat shoes after all

      Aww! Looks like our “Golf Club Watch” is over before it even started: stand down, officers! We were looking forward to seeing how Victoria Beckham would cope with the sartorial challenge of being forced to wear flat shoes for New York Fashion Week this year, but here she is this weekend, in a pair of Christian Louboutin boots which are as high as ever. We’re assuming Victoria got the go-ahead from her doctor for this (she’d been suffering from a slipped disc, hence the “flat shoes” rule), so good for her: we’d still have loved to see her in flats for a change, though! As consolation, here is a totally gratuitous shot of baby Harper Seven: awww! [Images: Fame Pictures]

      Victoria Beckham banned from wearing heels, worried about looking like “a golf club”

      Would Victoria Beckham look like a golf club in flat shoes? Be honest: we’ve all wondered, haven’t we? We’re about to find out, though, because apparently Victoria has been “banned” from wearing high heels for the duration of New York Fashion Week. That’s not on Fashion Police orders, we hasten to add – we wouldn’t be that cruel – but on the orders of Victoria’s doctor, who says she risks aggravating a slipped disc she suffered following the birth of Harper Seven last month, if she doesn’t switch to flats for a little while at least. Hopefully Victoria will comply with this advice: not just because she’d be an idiot to put fashion before health, of course, but because we’ll…


      Designer Vs High Street: Victoria Beckham Vs Closet

      Pictures of Freida Pinto looking gorgeous in a pale pink dress on Jimmy Fallon earlier this week had our officers sratching their heads for a second, and thinking, “Wait… is she wearing… Closet?” Of course, she wasn’t. Freida was, in fact, wearing a dress from Victoria Beckham’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection, which, like the rest of the Victoria Beckham line, is beautiful, but not exactly realistically priced for those of us who aren’t on celebrity salaries. Most of the dress collection, for instance, retails from £900 – £1,500, with some pieces costing more. Enter Closet, with their pink asymmetric neck dress, which… look, we’re not going to beat around the bush, here: it’s damn near identical, isn’t it? In fact, we…


      Victoria Beckham to launch budget dress collection, Fashion Police rejoice

      In what has to be the best news of the week so far – and possibly the entire year – The Fashion Police hears that Victoria Beckham is to launch a budget dress collection next year. Now, just before any of you start empting out your piggy banks and getting all excited about this, let us quickly clarify that what WE consider to be a “budget” dress and what Victoria Beckham considers to be a “budget” dress is considerably different, as you’d probably imagine. We’d call it a “budget” buy if it was under £50, for instance: and ideally, if it was under £30. When you’re Victoria Beckham, however, “budget” means it’s in the £350 – £550 range. Oh. Still,…


      Spot the Difference: Victoria Beckham and Closet grey peplum dresses

      Closet aren’t the first brand to “be inspired” by Victoria Beckhams’ Carmontelle peplum dress: they’re simply the most recent. Still, in the interests of policing the world of fashion, let the record reflect that the dress on the right of the image above looks very much like the one on the left, with one of the main differences being that you’ll only pay £30 for the copy (Click here to buy it from Dorothy Perkins), while the original would’ve set you back £2,095 – if, of course, it hadn’t been an almost-instant sell-out. Closet’s dress has a shorter skirt and some different tailoring on the bodice: which do you prefer (if either)?

      New York Fashion Week: Victoria Beckham Dresses (and handbags!) Spring 2011

      We’ll be back to our regular programming tomorrow, but for now we’re continuing our coverage of New York Fashion Week with a look at Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2011 dress collection. Victoria says she’s created these dresses with the “curvier” woman in mind, which is certainly a bit of a departure – not just for Vic, but for the fashion industry in general. She’s also added handbags to her line, previewing some of the new designs along with the dresses. This collection has already won a lot of praise, with some commentators saying it marks Beckham’s arrival as a “proper” designer. We think our readers should be the judge of that, though, so take a look under the jump and tell…

      Leighton Meester films Gossip Girl in a Victoria Beckham nude dress

      Best Dressed of the Day: Leighton Meester in Victoria Beckham Collection

      This edition of BDOTD is a bit Cheaty McCheaterson of us, because Leighton Meester is actually on the Gossip Girl set, here, so this isn’t her own choice of outfit. It IS rather lovely, however, and given that so many celebrity outfits are selected by stylists even when they’re NOT on set, we think it still counts. The dress is by Victoria Beckham, and Leighton’s wearing it with zig-zag print platform shoes and a black clutch bag. What do you think?

      Victoria Beckham in fur coat and skinny jeans

      Victoria Beckham wears fur at JFK

        Regardless of what anyone thinks about it, it doesn’t look like Victoria Beckham is going to be giving up fur anytime soon. Here she is is at JFK this week, wearing a fur coat, skinny jeans and Christian Louboutin ankle boots.

      Victoria Beckham in skinny jeans and high heels

      Victoria Beckham in skinny jeans and high heels

      This is what probably counts as a super-casual outfit for Victoria Beckham. Here she is wearing skinny jeans and high heeled peep toes as she takes two of her sons to see The Princess and the Frog in LA this week. What do you think of her casual look? [polldaddy poll=2486366]


      Save or Splurge: Grey dresses by Victoria Beckham and French Connection

      These two dresses aren’t exactly the same, but then, with a £2,000 price difference, you wouldn’t really expect them to be, would you? The dress on the right is by Victoria Beckham, and is currently out of stock at Net-a-Porter, which just goes to show that, yes, there are people in the world who would pay that much for a dress. The dress on the left, meanwhile, isn’t exactly “bargain basement” at £95, but as we said, it does represent a £2,000 saving on the original, so could be a slightly more realistic option for those of you looking to get the same look on a non-Beckham budget. It’s from French Connection. Which would you choose, though, assuming you’d choose…


      Spotted! Victoria Beckham in thigh high boots at Fashion’s Night Out

      We’ve always been of the opinion that if you’re going to wear thigh-high boots, you need to keep things reasonably demure on the top half, but Victoria Beckham cares nothing for such fashion “rules” – here she is in thigh high boots and a tiny little mini dress at the Bergdorf Goodman celebration of Fashion’s Night Out. There’s even some cleavage on show, too. Does she get away with it? Up to you to decide, fashion jurors…

      Spotted! Victoria Beckham in see-through top and seriously high heels

      It's all been suspiciously quite on the Victoria Beckham fashion-front recently, so we were almost relived today to spot Mrs Beckham looking as dressed-up as ever as she left her hotel in London. It's not like Victoria to repeat an outfit, but we're sure we've seen her in this skirt before: this time, though, she paired it with a sheer black top (and white bra – have we taught her nothing?!), plus these rather amazing black patent heels. We like it, but what do you think?

      The MET Costume Institute Gala 2009: Victoria Beckham in Louis Vuitton

      We must have missed the memo that said everyone had to wear Louis Vuitton to the 2009 Costume Institute Gala. It was probably lost in the post, along with our invitation. Victoria Beckham certainly got the message, though. We like this Louis Vuitton dress (the shoes, not so much), but are withholding the Gold Star on this occasion because our fingers are just itching to snip off that train. Just us?

      Style Stealer: Victoria Beckham’s red pencil dress

      We loved Victoria's Beckham's two dress collections, but with the dresses front them selling for around £2,000 each, we knew we'd never actually buy one. Luckily it's ASOS to the rescue, with this bright red pencil dress, which looks rather similar to the dress Victoria wore back in February this year, which was one of her own designs. Luckily the ASSO version comes without the hefty price tag. It's £38, and you can buy it here.

      Wanted! ASOS heart top (lets you dress like Victoria Beckham. Sort of.)

      Remember Victoria Beckham's heart-embellished Marc Jacobs dress? It was pretty, but maybe just a little bit OTT for anyone who isn't also known as Posh Spice, which is why we think this top from ASOS is a much more wearable – not to mention affordable – version. This is £34.50, and has a one-shoulder design, with pretty little hearts holding it up, a gently draped front and a nipped in waist. It's also long-enough to let you wear it with skinny jeans or leggings without flashing too much belly/crotch. We like.

      Victoria Beckham wants to join The Fashion Police*

      We're pretty sure Victoria Beckham is angling for a position on the Force. How do we know this? Well, it's obvious, just look at her: first she dresses up as an undercover detective (right), and now here she is wearing a military-style coat and hat. (Yes, we know we're not strictly military, but we are fighting a war against fashion here…) Well, Victoria, we can't deny that we've been fairly impressed with you recently, but the double-breasted coat is taking us back to the 80s, and that's not a destination we paid for. Also, the hat makes us think of Freddie Mercury, and not in a good way, so we've never include it as part of the police uniform –…

      Victoria Beckham loves fur – but don’t worry, it’s fake…

       Even The Fashion Police were fooled this week when we spotted Victoria Beckham out and about in a selection of what looked like real fur coats. Apparently, though, Posh is firmly anti-fur, and these are all fakes, albeit super-expensive ones by the likes of Stella McCartney, which is presumably how Victoria managed to get through New York Fashion Week without being mobbed by PeTA. What do you think of her fakes, though? Does the fact that they look relatively real bother you, or is she making a style statement and nothing more?

      Victoria Beckhams’ Fall 2009 dress collection at New York Fashion Week

       This season, Victoria Beckham is attending New York Fashion Week as a designer, rather than as simply a front-row celebrity, and trust us, we’re just as surprised as you probably are about that. Actually, though, we have a confession to make: we love almost everything about this collection of dresses, which Mrs Beckham is showing at the Waldorf Astoria, by appointment only. Sure, the simple, sheath-like shapes will be familiar to anyone who’s ever seen Victoria Beckham herself, but as with her last collection, we wouldn’t kick any of them out of the closet. Would you? (More images under the jump, via, plus one of Victoria herself looking…interesting.)

      Victoria Beckham for Armani: what do you think?

      Hot on the vertiginous heels of Madonna, and her stint as a model for Louis Vuitton, here are a couple of shots from Victoria Beckham’s campaign for Armani, due to hit billboards this Spring. Despite being ads for lingerie, not handbags, there’s still a lot less crotch than the Madonna campaign, you’ll be pleased to know, and we think Mrs Beckham looks pretty hot, all things considered. There’s one more after the jump – don’t forget to tell us what you think!

      Victoria Beckham in “same outfit twice” shocker

      OK, so it’s not exactly the same outfit, because this dress is grey and the last one was black, but Victoria Beckham clearly likes this style a whole lot, because it’s the second time she’s been spotted wearing The Dress – the first time being at Heathrow Airport back in October. Well, we don’t blame her. We loved this dress the first time she wore it, in black, and we love this grey version, too, so it looks like we’re going to have to get our detectives working round the clock to discover the identity of the designer. Unless, of course, any of our readers can help us out?

      Fashion Police Gold Star for… Victoria Beckham at Heathrow Airport

      We know she has her critics out there in Fashion Land, but seriously, between the Audrey-Hepburn-esque crop, the chic little dress and the Chanel handbag, we think Victoria Beckham deserves a Gold Star for this outfit. And hey, this is totally what we’d wear to travel in if we had Vic’s money. Well, OK, maybe not. But we do appreciate her ongoing efforts to make travelling glamorous again…

      Victoria Beckham spotted in Antonio Berardi heel-less boots

      We already knew Victoria Beckham was a fan of Antonio Nerardi’s heel-free shoes, but here she is actually wearing them, and getting more attention for her choice of footwear than for the fragrance she was launching at the time. Victoria wore the thigh-high PVC numbers to the launch of The Beckhams’ ‘Signature’ fragrance in New York, pairing them with a thigh-skimming short grey dress. She appears to be managing to balance in them pretty well, although, of course, she’s had plenty of practice walking in heels. What do you think of this look, though? Hit or miss?

      Link Dump: Dog crates, Victoria Beckham, blog makeovers and gum

      This week, in the wonderful world of blogging: Hey, Dollface wants to know what you think of Victoria Beckham’s new haircut (pictured)?Keeping It Realtor finds a dog crate fit for Rubinman (who has had a bit of a blog makeover this week, by the way).Forever Amber has had a blog makeover too.The Grumpy Old Bloggers hate chewing gum but love Heathrow’s Terminal Five. See, they don’t just grump all the time..And Shoewawa rounds up some fabulous flat shoes on the high street.

      Victoria Beckham unveils new dress collection at New York Fashion Week: what do you think of it?

      (Click image to view full size)It’s a little bit surreal seeing Victoria Beckham’s name among the list of designers at, isn’t it? Surreal or not, though, Posh Spice is determined to prove herself as a designer, and to that end, she’s chosen New York Fashion Week to launch her new dress collection, seen above. There aren’t many surprises in this collection, and if you’ve ever seen Victoria Beckham herself (and it would be hard to have missed her, let’s face it), you could probably have imagined what kind of thing she would come up with. Each dress could have been pulled from her own closet: it’s all pencil skirts and figure-hugging shapes, and you can easily imagine Victoria wearing…

      Star Style on Trial: Victoria Beckham in Giambattista Valli at the launch of her ‘Signature’ scent in Manchester

      Despite the criticism she receives for her figure, her fake tans, her nails, her pout… just for being alive, basically… most of the time we have to admit to finding Victoria Beckham’s dress sense pretty inoffensive. OK, she’s had her moments, but sometimes her outfits are downright covetable. And then, other times, they’re like a mullet. We’re speaking literally here, because yes, that appears to be fur on Victoria’s back, and given that a furry back is pretty much the last thing we’d want for ourselves, this dress has puzzled us – all the more so because it’s so perfect from the front. This is from Giambattista Valli’s Autumn/Winter 08 collection, and we think Vic must have been going for…

      Best Dressed of the Day: Maggie Gyllenhaal, Victoria Beckham, Hayden Panettiere or Kristen Bell

      (click image to enlarge) There hasn’t been a whole lot going on red-carpet-wise recently: of course, there’ve been plenty of red carpet events, but no clothes on them that have particularly grabbed our attention, so this edition of "Best Dressed" consists of a selection of celebrity outfits selected mostly at random, and which we’re keen to hear your thoughts on. All of these, with the exception of the Maggie Gyllenhaal shot, which is from the Dark Knight premiere, are from the ESPY Awards, so we have Maggie, Victoria Beckham, Hayden Panettiere and Kristen Bell, all hoping to be named Best Dressed of the Day. Who’s it going to be though? Well, that, dear readers, is up to you!

      Foot Snatcher strikes again! Victoria Beckham is latest victim!

      OK, this is getting serious. Today we add Victoria Beckham’s name to the list of celebrities who’ve fallen victim to that vile criminal known to The Fashion Police as The Foot Snatcher. That list in full: Kristin Cavallari and Erin O’ConnorJanet JacksonKim KardashianKatie Holmes The Fashion Police would like to assure concerned readers that we have our very best officers working round the clock on this – in fact, they’re out on the streets right now in their gun-shaped shoes, so don’t worry kids, the situation is in hand, and we’re hoping to reunite Mrs Beckham with her lost feet very soon. In the meantime, don’t have nightmares – and keep an eye on your feet…

      MET Costume Institute Gala 2008: David & Victoria Beckham

      We reckon the MET Costume Institute Gala is way better than the Oscars, purely in terms of fashion, so today we’re going to be bringing you some pictures of the stars coming out to play at the 2008 event. Your job is simply to tell us what you think of their outfits, kicking off with David Beckham and Joan Collins, whoops, we mean wife Victoria, above. Man, but Joan Collins is going to be pissed when she realises Victoria stole her style, no?

      Victoria Beckham poses for Vogue, designs clothes with Roland Mouret

      Victoria Beckham really doesn’t care that half the population of Planet Fashion take great exception to her self-proclaimed "fashionista" status. And after all, why should she? She’s just managed to nab her first Vogue cover (for the UK edition’s April issue) and now The Fashion Police hears that Posh is about to design a collection of dresses with none other than Roland Mouret. We promise we’re not making this up. Victoria’s line will be called The Little Black Dress Collection. Can you guess what it’ll consist of? Yes! Dresses! Black ones! (We would assume.) There will be ten of them altogether – no word yet on when we can expect to see them. We’re suffering serious "celebrities-turning-designer" burnout right now,…

      Victoria Beckham and Uma Thurman buy Antonio Berardi’s heelless shoes, Fashion Police decide not to bother

      Victoria Beckham and Uma Thurman are apparently among the first to place orders for a pair of these Antonio Berardi heelless shoes (because shoes with no heels are all the rage right now, didn’t you know?) Will the rest of the world follow suit, though, we wonder? Well, we’d have to walk a mile in ’em to know for sure how comfortable they are, and there does look to be some degree of arch support, to be sure, but when even the designer himself admits that " “When you walk, it is almost on tiptoe," we’re going to assume that there probably won’t be a mad rush on these, because most women we know just won’t like the idea of…

      Victoria Beckham is very orange at Project Runway

      For once the word "orange" isn’t being used here to describe the colour of Victoria Beckham’s fake tan…. Nope, here’s Posh judging Project Runway, and and making very sure that no one misses her – indeed, such is the brightness of this ensemble that when we close our eyes, we can still see it, imprinted on our retinas. This seems to be part of a new style move by Victoria, who recently featured on these very pages in a neon yellow outfit, complete with matching shoes. She does like to match her glow-in-the-dark dresses to her glow-in-the-dark shoes, doesn’t she? A quick look around the web reveals that the words most often being used to describe this outfit of Victoria’s…

      Dita Von Teese, Caludia Schiffer and Victoria Beckham front row for Roland Mouret

      Dontchya just love it when the ‘slebs do the "wearing dark glasses indoors because it’s a FASHION SHOW, dahlink" thing? Here’s Dita Von Teese, Claudia Schiffer and Victoria Beckham, all looking like really bad undercover detective in their shades at Roland Mouret’s couture week show. Dita’s making a bit of a fashion faux pas here by showing up in the Moon Dress, which Victoria wore in pink, way back in July, but given that she’s Dita Von Teese, and she looks so very fabulous in it, I think we’ll let her off the hook. This is the second time Victoria and Dita have chummed up at Fashion Week. I’d just love to know what these three very different women are…

      Victoria Beckham for Marc Jacobs S/S 08

      We love the latest Marc Jacobs ad campaign for Spring/Summer 08, featuring Victoria Beckham in a Marc Jacobs shopping bag and a pair of his already-infamous surreal shoes. We’ve always appreciated Posh’s sense of humour and it’s nice to see that MJ has one, too. What will Mr. Blackwell say, though?

      Victoria Beckham tops Mr. Blackwell’s Worst Dressed List

      Poor old Victoria Beckham. She tries so hard to get it right, but according to Mr.Blackwell, who’s just published his latest Worst Dressed List, she continues to get it oh so very wrong. Victoria tops the list, making her officially the worst dressed woman of the year. Here’s the top ten in full, with our comments… 1. Victoria Beckham You know, I sometimes think that Victoria’s habit of trying too hard (OK, make that WAY too hard) makes her an eary target when it comes to these kinds of lists. It’s all, "Ooh, she thinks she looks good – let’s knock her down!" Sure, Victoria is far from perfect, but there are worst dressed women out there, trust us. Case…

      Victoria Beckham in not-so-mellow yellow

      Oh Lord, is that whole "neon" thing still going on? We’ve been trying hard to pretend it wasn’t happening, but not Victoria Beckham. Nope, Posh has embraced neon, going for a yellow dress and shoes ensemble for a trip to a London restaurant with David, and, of course, her breasts, which are now so prominent that I’m guessing the Beckhams probably had to book a table for four… Now, presumably Victoria’s philosophy here is "If ya got it, flaunt it", and good for her. But the fact remains that if you’re going to go out like this, you may as well just wear a sign round your neck saying "BOOBS! LOOKIT THEM!" because that’s really what this dress is commanding…

      Celebrity Style Stealer: Victoria Beckham’s little black dress

      I know there was probably a car waiting for her just a few metres away, but my first thought on seeing Victoria Beckham out shopping in London in this little black dress was "God, she must have been freezing!" If it’s cold enough for gloves, Victoria, it’s cold enough for a nice, warm coat, and maybe a pair of tights, hmmm? OK, enough with the "sounding like Victoria’s mother", on with the real business of this post, which is to inform you all that Vic’s LBD is by What Comes Around Goes Around, and, for once, this is a piece of genuine Posh Spice style that you can steal without spending too much money, because it’s down to $209 at…

      Style Stealer: Victoria Beckham’s beige lace prom dress

      I realise I’m quite possibly alone in this, as in many things, but I loved the beige ruffled prom dress Victoria Beckham wore earlier this year – you know, back when she was parading Katie Holmes around like the latest must-have handbag. I, then, was pretty pleased to see that ASOS are now selling a version of that very dress which is not a kick in the ass off the original, for just £45. I’m not going to buy it, obviously – it would make me look naked and strangely frilly – but I am enjoying looking at it. It’s also available in black if you, too, are afraid of the "naked" look.

      Two celebrities, one style: Victoria Beckham and Keira Knightley in braces

      Looks like the stylists for Elle and Interview magazines were thinking along the same lines for these covers, featuring Victoria Beckham and Keira Knightley, both wearing white trousers and black braces. While Vic’s gone for the casual look, though, with just a little bit of strap-slide to allow one of her eye-popping breasts to do a little "popping" of its own, Keira’s tried to sex things up with black leather gloves, a diamond necklace and not a lot else. Kudos to Victoria here for resiting the lure of the "braces over nipples" pose, which Keira has succumbed to. We would respectfully suggest, though, that Keira Knightley stop wearing clothes that show off her boobs : it freaked us out the…

      Roland Mouret’s Moon dress makes another appearance – this time at Lipsy

      No, this isn’t the Roland Mouret version of the pink dress made famous by Victoria Beckham, and it isn’t even the Oli version we showed you last week. No, this one is by Lipsy, and it’s £60, made in figure-hugging satin and with a cutaway detail at the back. I don’t know about you, but I forsee a few embarrassing moments this Christmas when the sheer proliferation of these dresses on the high street leads to Christmas parties crammed with girls all dressed like Victoria Beckham clones. You want to start making bets on how many we can see between now and next year?

      Classic Crimes of Fashion: Victoria Beckham in chaps

      I can’t actually remember seeing this picture the first time round, whenever that was (I’m guessing by the hair that it was a couple of years ago at least) so I’m assuming my mind has simply repressed the memory of it. I still don’t "get" the use of chaps as a fashion item. What purpose do they serve, other than to add an extra-special dollop of fug to your outfit? Because the irony is that Victoria Beckham here would have been looking just fine in her jeans waistcoat (waistcoat! She’s wearing them with a waistcoat, in an unholy alliance of formalwear and …. chaps. Like she’s planning on riding to the Oil Baron’s Ball or something.)  has she not decided…

      Crime of Fashion: Tennies’ ‘Tracy’ lace up wedges

      A quick word of warning for you, fashion fans: never let your sports shoes mate with your wedge heels. Best case scenario: you end up looking like Victoria Beckham. Worst case scenario: you end up the "proud" owner of a pair of Tennies lace-up ‘Tracy’ shoes. "If only all our sneakers could be as chic as these," says the ShopBop website. Um, I’m sorry, WHAT? (Thanks to PunkChick for submitting this Crime of Fashion!)

      Style Stealer: Oli’s version of Victoria Beckham’s pink Roland Mouret ‘Moon’ Dress

      The colour is different and the fabric isn’t quite the same, but this pink pleat neck dress from Oli is unmistakably "inspired" by Roland Mouret’s "Moon" dress, as seen on Victoria Beckham. Oli are far from the only ones to be making copies of this dress – Topshop did one and Tesco have one too, apparently, so this one simply adds to the collection of Moon-like dresses available. It’s £60 – a damn sight less than Mrs Beckham paid…. Victoria Beckham’s pink ‘Moon’ dress by Roland Mouret So, I understand Victoria Beckham’s TV documentary didn’t go down too well in the States. That’s too bad. Love her or hate her, though, you surely must concede that this dress is to…

      Victoria Beckham buys a Marks and Spencer leather dress – and so does everyone else, apparently

      For someone who’s constantly being slated for her fashion sense, Victoria Beckham sure seems to be influential. Marks and Spencer, for instance, are claiming that her purchase of the black leather dress shown above has boosted their sales by 11.5%, and are describing it as "the hit of the season". Almost 30% of the first order was sold via the M&S website before they could even get the dresses onto the shop floor, and it’s been selling out ever since – all thanks to Ms. Beckham, apparently, who ordered a size 8 and had to have it taken in to fit her. Is it really that special, though? I probably wouldn’t wear a leather dress myself, so I’m not the…

      Victoria Beckham Goes Back to Brunette

      Apologies for the graininess of this picture, but it seems to be the only one around that properly shows the new hairdo Victoria Beckham got herself this week. Posh has apparently gone back to brunette in preparation for the start of the Spice Girls tour, which starts in December. Looks like she’s making a bit of a return to the look that made her famous. Personally I love this ‘do on Victoria. I think the brunette bob was the classiest of her hairstyles (although I loved the recent blonde "pob" too). What does everyone else think?

      Victoria Beckham goes from the sublime to the ridiculous

      My apologies for showing you two pictures of Victoria Beckham in one day but I couldn’t resist this one… This is Vic at Paris Fashion Week. What is she wearing? Well, I dunno, but it looks like it could be Big Bird’s younger, redder brother. Why is she wearing it? Who knows. But I think she should have stuck to the green dress, no?

      If You Wannabe My Fashion Icon: Dita Von Teese and Victoria Beckham at Paris Fashion Week

      Now here’s an  interesting fashion pairing: one true fashion icon and one wannabe, side by side at the Chanel Show, Paris Fashion Week. Actually, I love Victoria’s green dress which is simple, chic and a gorgeous, jewel colour, and Dita looks suitably 50s style – although there is something of the "recently exhumed" about her, too, with that white, white skin of hers. Morticia Adams clearly has a long-lost sister in Dita. These two sat next to each other at the Chanel show: who do you think looked best?

      Neiman Marcus give Victoria Beckham a $5 million spending limit because she is special

      Oh, to be Victoria Beckham, with her wardrobe filled with Roland Mouret and Christian Louboutin (not the designers themselves, you understand. Just their clothes. If she had Roland and Christian in her closet… that would be weird) and, most particularly, her Neiman Marcus store card, with it’s $5 million spending limit. Yes, I think I could manage pretty comfortably with that, don’t you? Having spent almost $15,000 in one spending spree at Barney’s last week, though, I reckon Neiman Marcus are onto a good thing. Who, me? Jealous? No way… [via Allie is Wired]

      Chanelle from Big Brother imitates Victoria Beckham’s “big pants and stilettos” outfit

      No, I wouldn’t have thought anyone would want to copy Victoria Beckham’s ‘Woman of the Year’ outfit either (Well, except from commenter Mel, obviously, who thinks that if it’s "designer" then it must be absolutely fabulous, dahlink. Good luck with the fashion-victim rehab Mel!) but someone apparently does. And OK, it’s just Chanelle from Big Brother 8 – she of the kerrazy Victoria Beckham obsession – but even so. Chanelle is certainly doing a good job of looking like her idol, here, but what happened to all of the "I’m going to be my own person" claims she made when she left the Big Brother house?

      Style Stealer: Victoria Beckham’s pink ‘Moon’ dress by Roland Mouret

      So, I understand Victoria Beckham’s TV documentary didn’t go down too well in the States. That’s too bad. Love her or hate her, though, you surely must concede that this dress is to die for. It’s Roland Mouret’s ‘Moon’ dress, and I predict it’s going to be the Galaxy dress of this year. It’s available to pre-order in black and white (no hot pink though, I’m afraid – Posh must’ve beat them to it) at Net-a-Porter, but it’ll cost you £990, so those of us who don’t have access to David Beckham’s bank account might just have to wait until the inevitable high street copies come out.

      Victoria Beckham dresses up for Heathrow Airport, plus more ‘W’ magazine pictures

      Now, you just know she’s going to get out of that little black dress and heels as soon as she’s on the plane, right? These are the times when I don’t envy celebrities one little bit. (Well, OK, maybe one little bit. Or two.) I mean, who could be bothered to get dressed up like this just to walk through an airport, and then go through it all again at the other end, to walk through another airport? Yes, folks, there are advantages to being but an ordinary person. Not many, but some. That said, Victoria does look good in her LBD. What’s with the "dressing all the kids in identical clothes" thing, though? Meanwhile, more of those W Magazine…
