Victoria Beckham for Glamour Magazine

Posted on August 02, 2012

Vicki Posh got up this morning, saw that we were lavishing attention on the wrong Beckham, and said, “Oh, no. This won’t do AT ALL.”

So, by order of Beckham International’s legal team*, we hereby present Miss Vicki herself, sticking things in her mouth for Glamour mag.

*Possibly.

Victoria Beckham covers the September 2012 issue of Glamour magazine photographed by Pamela Hanson and styled by Anne Christensen. Hair by Danilo. Makeup by Fulvia Farolfi.

 

On why she’s rarely seen smiling: “Do you know, I don’t know?! I actually used to smile a lot in pictures. I think I only stopped smiling when I got into fashion. [Laughs.] Fashion stole my smile! I’ve created this person. And I’m not saying that’s not me, but I wouldn’t say that’s the whole me…. It’s an armor that goes up.”

On where she sees herself in five years: “I’d like everybody to be healthy and happy. I’d like to be growing the business at a steady pace, and to be making more women feel empowered, beautiful, and confident. And I’d never say never about another baby. It’s a juggling act—a career, family, a husband [David Beckham] who’s busy. But I’d never say never!”

On David seeing her fashion line at New York Fashion Week this past season: “It was the first time! He’s always been working or training. But I was nervous about this show. I was feeling a lot of pressure. He phoned me the night before, and I just said, ‘I want you to come be with me. I want a cuddle. I really do.’ And it was great to have him there. I think he was surprised; I don’t usually bother him with much detail. And then you get there, and the models, the hair, the makeup…I think he was blown away!”

We don’t care what anyone says about her; we think she sounds like fun. Vicki, call us. We’ll go shopping together. And by that we mean we’ll watch you shop and tell you what we think of what you’re buying. Won’t that be fun, girl?

            • frankystein123

              ULTRA GAAAAAAAYYY. And even though I don’t buy her shtick about empowering women because I’m so jaded, she does have an (mostly) impeccable sense of fashion.

      • Le_Sigh

        Ditto!  Color me surprised.

      • RebeccaKW

         Yes.  Her and David have worn me down, and those sweet kids.  I love them. 

    • paginatrix

      When I was 13-14-15 I had this Thing where I never smiled in photos. Too cool, or something. Now I see those dour pictures and want to punch myself in the neck. 

      • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

        Me too! My first communion pic is diabolical.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      I find her, and most of her work, equally uninspiring. This stuff is no real exception.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        Plus, I’m just CERTAIN all the lady kittens here routinely suck up ice cream sodas in panties and a tight lace top. Usually right after Pilates. Right ladies?

        • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

          Uh oh, I’ve been outed.  And I thought you were a friend, Kiltd.

          Sorry, Posh just BORES me, and so do her clothes.

          • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

            Well, I thought since you posted about it on Facebook that it was okay to talk about. My bad.
            Yeah, she’s a real yawn for me.

            • theblondette

               I’m sure NurseEllen will get her own back by revealing what YOU wear for that post-pilates milkshake ;)

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              Pretty much the same thing.

            • theblondette

               That reminds me of a website I’ve visited… But I probably shouldn’t, ah, talk about that…

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              Mmmmm, yeah. Mebbe not.
              (snert)

        • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

          Some of the male kittens do as well.  :)

        • holdmewhileimnaked

          they might do what she’s actually doing: holding an ice cream soda. i cant honestly believe that she tasted any of it. or maybe they teased her into trying one sip. probably not.

        • librarygrrl64

           That’s what I’m doing right now, as a matter of fact. With a photographer standing by.

          • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

            You librarygrrls are some wild chicks!

            • librarygrrl64

               The “sexy librarian” trope exists for a reason, my friend. ;-)

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              I always thought as much. Thanks for the confirmation!

      • j_anson

        I don’t think she’s doing anything particularly interesting as a designer; she’s no ground-breaker. Still, I usually LIKE her stuff; it’s sleek and stylish without really being attention-grabbing, which means it’s the kind of clothing that could be wardrobe staples for a lot of women. Women who are a size zero, anyway. :) (I do quite like that red and black dress above.)

        • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

          A size zero with money to burn, lol.

        • terpsichory

           And I have a feeling, would her clothes show up in a Donna Karen collection, no one would accuse them of not being ‘Fashion’.

        • holdmewhileimnaked

          i generally agree w/ you–i was surprised about how much i tend to like her stuff, as un-innovative as it is [apologies, i could neither come up w/ nor even find a proper word that meant only un-visionary]. it almost invariably looks good on whoever wears it–better, in fact, than does the work of considerably more talented designers. the only point of contention i have, i think, is that all her stuff only looks good on people of very small sizes. the thing is: i dont know if it’s only made in those sizes [at least probable] but more of it than i wouldve earlier imagined looks like it would look good on many people. the abovenoted red dress, for example.

          in fact, i hope she does have them made to fit more than the standard extra smalls through small mediums–if she had them created in, say, size twenty, then maybe she would make at least a few women feel more empowered, uck, than she does currently.

          • lonepear

            Actually, one thing that has surprised me about her line is that whenever I’ve seen pictures of curvier ladies (well, Hollywood curvy, so like size 8) wearing it, I think it flatters them too.

            • librarygrrl64

               Agreed, as long as they’re pears or hourglasses. It’s the cut of the skirts, I think. I’ve seen Kate Winslet rock a few of those.

          • sweetestsith

             I think she said at some point that she purposefully designed clothes to create curves on very straight up & down body types, in part because she found it difficult to find such things while shopping. I’m not positive about that though.

        • librarygrrl64

           Yes, I feel “meh” about her and her husband, but her clothing and accessory line appeals to the classic dresser in me. It’s not revolutionary in anyway, but it’s chic and understated, and surprisingly well-done for a celebrity line. Sadly, everything is well out of my size and price range.

    • Clueless_Jock

      I think her clothes are flattering to most women and certainly saleable, but not really “fashion.”

      • luciaphile

        I would argue that her clothes are flattering to size 00s – 2s and possibly 4s. Not sure about the rest of the women in the world though. 

    • MilaXX

      I always think she’d be cool to hang with. Maybe not in public where she puts on as she put it, her “armour”, but hanging out around the house having a drink and a laugh she sound like someone I’d like to chill with.

    • http://twitter.com/janedonuts Jane Donuts

      Funny, I’ve never thought of her as adorable before now.

    • Wrenaria

      I agree. She sounds fun to me too.

    • turtleemily

      She looks like Kate Beckinsale in the last shot. Then I giggled that the milk behind her is organic but there’s Eggo waffles in the freezer.

    • bittykitty

      if you ever want to see her really loosen up, there is a really old interview that ali g did with posh and becks for comic relief…

      • deltabronze

        That was fun . . . They both look so young and actually seem very sweet. It’s nice that they’re smiling and not scowling.

      • http://twitter.com/Alloyjane Alloy Jane

        Hah! That’s exactly who I think of when I think of Posh & Becks.  ALI G!  That’s how she won me over.  By being a good sport for that interview.

    • http://twitter.com/ILikeShiny Cindi Williams

      I think Victoria would be a whale of a good time. I love a dry sense of humor, and by the by, if someone told me to smile more, I’d punch them in the face.

      • out for a walk

        Agree on all counts. Random people on the street tell me to smile sometimes, and it really pisses me off. I don”t know why people think they get a say in a stranger’s emotions or facial expressions.

        Also, love love love Posh.

        • librarygrrl64

           This is SO annoying, and I find that it’s usually men saying it to women. Grrrrrr.

      • RebeccaKW

         Yes, I hate that.  I hear that at work all the time.  I’m working, who smiles at their computer screen while working on spreadsheets?

        I would love to hang out with her.

    • Vaniljekjeks

       She looks adorable.  I love that red and black dress.  If my boobs weren’t huge to the point this dress would be laughably unflattering, I would want it in my closet. 

      • Sweetbetty

         The first thing I thought of when I saw that red and black dress was that the black band across the boobs was to flatten them.  Like the flappers used to do back in the ’20s when the flat-chested look was in.  It just looks painful to me.

    • Susan Crawford

      Yep, I would definitely hang out at the upscale-mall with Vicky. We’d try on lots of stuff, giggle, gossip and have mimosas. Then we’d head out for her house where Becks would have the barbie fired up for the poolside party with T and Lo. (Swimsuit optional in Becks’s case.) Well, a girl can dream, can’t she?

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      These pictures are so fun! I may actually purchase and read this issue of Glamour.

    • j_anson

      I’m honestly surprised by how fun she sounds in her interview. It’s always smarter for public figures not to try to pretend they don’t have an image they’re conscious of.

    • http://twitter.com/lenabena_ Elena

      She looks great, although for such a fashionista, I’m not sure why they decided to hide her under fake bath bubbles instead of putting her in more fierce outfits.

    • http://twitter.com/AmberAndronicus Fucking A.

      Oh please please please make that a thing– you guys & Vicki Posh hanging out. Please video it: I’d pay to see that. 

    • BerlinerNYC

      I knew I loved her when I saw that reality show she had in the summer of ’06 or ’07. It was hilarious. She’s a very clever woman with a good, dry, British sense of humor.

    • Rand Ortega

      Roland Mouret called. He wants his collection(s) back.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PCARAOJSL553GBBPQSLRYD5REE L.

      Does this poor woman’s face move at all?

    • http://needtherapy.tumblr.com/ skadi1

      How cute is it that she just wants to cuddle.

    • SpcilK

      I love her, she is one of my best friends. ( In my head of course!) We travel, shop, and have high tea, all the time.

    • http://press-for-attention.tumblr.com/ Miss Jen K

      All the non-smiling gave me the impression she was a mega-bitch, but when I saw her talk about the magazine, she actually sounded laid-back and nice. I happily stand un-impressioned.

      Also, the pictures are pretty cute; I really like the girliness of the first one.

    • PrunellaV

      I like her. She is herself. And are those freckles I see on the cover?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_RDEDI3ONWSVDQS5GXKKBIML3H4 Chase

      I don’t care if she is constantly infected with the sourpuss virus.  I like her.

      She and Kate Beckinsale should totes be doppelganger BFF’s.

    • kingderella

      she looks fierce with the glasses on, in that red dress.
      the milkshake/supermarket/lingerie-picture is confusing.
      the cover is just plain weird. its the fashion issue! here, a naked woman! and we dont even get to see the shape of her body, obscured as it is with foam.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      I actually think she might be tons of fun to hang out with!

    • Pants_are_a_must

      She used to look very tacky, and now you’d never catch her without superb make up and hair. She might not eat, but I’m sure she would’ve been a fantastically catty PR judge.

    • holdmewhileimnaked

      i really [to the power of three] love her red dress; otoh, i wish she wouldnt say she was making women feel empowered. not only do i think the word empowered has lost all the power in which it was once wrapped & should now, at long last, be dumped upon the smoking refuse heap formed from every other lost word in history but i also think, oh heavens no & regardless, thats not what she does.

    • nancylee61

      Sure, we are empowered to starve ourselves to,look like anorexic Vicky. I think not. Thanks anyway.

      • 909girl601world

         Do you know that she’s anorexic or are you making fun of her thin physique which is no more acceptable than making fun of someone who is overweight?

    • nannypoo

      This post is a pleasant surprise. She comes off here as less of a shithead than usual.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1241487378 Lauren Lynch Fox

      I like the red dress, just wonder how many women could wear it. Have always liked posh. 

    • http://korilian.livejournal.com/ korilian

      I love Posh (and Becks). They won over my heart the moment they called their home Beckingham palace. Having said that, I don’t think her pictures are very good. This frumpled look just doesn’t suit her. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1550881905 Hildegerd Haugen

      I liked the red dress.

    • Warrior89

      I enjoy her.  I really do.

    • mhleta

      Any woman who can work as hard as she does, look as polished as she does and keep her husband and kids happy has my undying admiration. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      I have to agree, she seems like a very cool person to hang out with.  

    • CPK1

      Love her!!!!! I think she is fab and knows a lot about fashion. She seems super cool too. She was great as a PR judge too

    • nancylee61

      I don’t know how happy he is, he did cheat on her. And why is it a woman’s job to keep her husband happy? Sometimes I feel like I have fallen back into the 50s in today’s America.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1457941242 Kate Kealey

      Love her!

    • Callie Fife

      I will go shopping with you two ANY time. :)

      I adore the skinny bitch!

    • quiltrx

      I like her hair in the milkshake one, in which I guess she’s bringing all the boys to the yard.

    • librarygrrl64

      I really love the first look. She looks so cute (are those FRECKLES??? :-)) and normal and un-skeletal. I don’t miss The Bitch Face at all. 

    • Amy Ennis

      Is it sad that I want to hang out with her just so I can find out how cute Becks is in real life?
