Victoria Beckham for ELLE France

Posted on October 19, 2012

Vicki Posh is very, very cross with you right now!


Victoria Beckham covers the latest issue of Elle France magazine photographed by Karl Lagerfeld in a dress from her Fall 2012 collection.


You have to go by the body language, because you really can’t tell from the face. This is also the face for surprise, happiness, rage, sadness, and annoyance. But trust us; she is crossing her arms in a fit of pique right now and it’s all your fault.

That dress is really cute.


Victoria Fall 2012 Collection/Model: Josephine Skriver

And we just love the absurdity of her on a mirrored staircase sans pants, posing with Karl Lagerfeld; the both of them sporting expressions so weighty, you’d think they just solved some important world problem just by being fabulous. We think she loves the absurdity of it too.

Fun pictures. We do love that Vicki.

    I’m sorry, I just love her to bits.

    • lbl

      Same. I just love this whole shoot, to be honest.

    • Sobaika

      Basically. She’s fabulous and also has a really healthy sense of humor about it, seems like.

      • PinkLemon

         in her book That Extra Half An Inch, she’s hilariously self deprecating. it’s a great book.

        • Michelle Le

          love that book! she is really one of my favourite celebrities

    • LuisaNL

       I know, she’s fabulous! Love the pic with Karl.

  • mshesterp

    I don’t like the detached sleeves on the cover, but in general I think she does a fantastic job of making relatively simple clothes look chic. And she just has the best legs ever. Work that no pants look, girl!and she has just the best bitch face. Love her!

  • gabbilevy

    Love that cover dress and adore the photo of VIcki and Karl, it’s so ridiculous they HAVE to know what’s up.

  • S_Swift

    Did she Hulk out and rip the cuffs?

  • charlotte

    Eek, Karl Lagerfeld creeps me out.

    • Anita Freiler Palmer

       Karl Lagerfeld is The Cryptkeepr….

  • kingderella

    cover: is it just me or does that head look like it doesnt belong on that body? im not saying its photoshoped – if it is, they did a pretty great job with the hair – but maybe its just the angle… it just looks wonky to me.

    the editorial is fabulous!

    • kimmeister

      What bothers me about the cover shot is that the placement of her arms makes it looks like her bottom half and her top half are off alignment.  Plus, the eye expects to see some white space between her left arm and her torso, but alas, there is none.

  • pax540

    Her shoes in the last picture look soooo weird. She looks like she has hoofed feet.

  • Trisha26

    I don’t understand the sleeve “cuffs” on that dress. 

  • alyce1213

    Great shots.  I have quite a bit of respect for her as a designer and a model.  Lagerfeld is so cool.

  • granddelusion

    She makes me tired.

  • Anathema_Device

    So the brown cuffs aren’t fully attached to the sleeves of that dress? That is weirding me out. Do not like.

    Otherwise, this is Posh being all Poshy-y. Nothing to criticize nor laud.

    • PinkLemon

       yeah i don’t get the cuff thing either. not deliberate enough. Pantsless Posh Spice.

  • AlinaValero

    i want to read the article “pussy riot”.

    • charlotte

       It is about that imprisoned Russian punk girl band, in case you are wondering.

      • AlinaValero

        AH that makes sooo much more sense! thanks!

  • Gotham Tomato

    I was in Kirna Zabete last weekend and saw Vicki’s dresses there. The price tags I checked were in the $2000 range.


  • tereliz

    She seems like she’s way more fun in person than she comes across in her stern-faced photos. That Glamour mag with her in the tub with a tiara was refreshingly fun!

    I used the phrase “fit of pique” just after lunch to one of my coworkers. Must be something in the aether.

  • jmorino08

    Those are some maja Barbie legs right there!

  • deathandthestrawberry

    She has totally grown on me. When she first landed her in the U.S. I could not stand her. She just seemed so fakey and above it all. I don’t know if she’s mellowed or I have, but now I totally want to hang with her and be fabulous.

  • Kiltdntiltd

    Anybody else notice that the word Botox, is right next to her face on the cover?  (snorting)  Someone wasn’t paying much attention to details with the mock up of the cover

    • AthenaJ

      Good catch!

    • decormaven

      Her publicist needs to make a call on that flub. There’s going to be an act of contrition; they’ll probably feature her fashions in another cover shoot or so, or do an inside spread. The cover shot of her is very flattering- I like it when she doesn’t look quite as severe.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    is Karl wearing lace pants?..if so i am truly afraid….

    • Kiltdntiltd

       I was wondering the same thing. I have decided, in order to preserve my sanity, that they are embossed leather, and just picking up the light.  Otherwise, it is the final sign of the End of Days.

      • MajorBedhead

         I thought it was carved velvet. Or whatever you call it when designs are, well, carved into velvet.

        • Kiltdntiltd

           Could be, could be.  The term is either, cut, or voided velvet, if you’re wondering.

          • Donna Tabor

             Or devore.

        • schadenfreudelicious

          yes, they could be a burnout velvet type pattern, less terrifying than lace, but still borderline….

      • schadenfreudelicious

        good gawd yes, Herr Lagerfeld in lace trousers is surely a sign of the impending apocalypse!

  • Contralto

    Girl is wearing the hell out of – well, everything, actually.

  • Isabel

    Is Karl wearing leggings with patterns?

  • PeaceBang

    The Lagerfeld photo is all “Now is the time on Sprockets ven ve dance,” isn’t it? Ultra perfection. 

    • TieDye64

      Hahaaaa, nailed it.

    • AthenaJ

      “Touch the monkey! Love him! Love him!!!”

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    It is so much easier to solve the world’s problems when you’re not wearing pants.

    • out for a walk

      Nolan Ross knows what’s up, what with the no pants.

  • PrunellaV

    I feel like I, a nondescript, overweight, middle-aged woman, am not supposed to like her, but I do. 

  • Mary Stone

    annnd NO REFLECTIONS in the mirrors (?!)  Wonder what that might signify…

    • quiltrx

      Come on, Mary Stone!  Anyone that looks like (and has the personal style of) Uncle Karl has GOT to be a vampire.  He turned Vicki Posh right before this shoot.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    She’s pretty fierce. I just wish she’d eat some food. 

  • MilaXX

    I’mma be nice and simply say I like Vickie’s blue dress and cover shot.

  • afabulous50

    KL always gives me the creeps – but you can’t deny he has style.  She is fabulous – I wonder what she’d look like if she smiled…sigh.

  •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

    That last shot makes me want to write a screenplay with Posh & Karl as superheroes.  It’s called “Fashion Police,” and they save the world through fabulousness.  A better writer than me needs to take it from here.

  • mjude

    love the photo of her & karl!

  • Pamela

    Hate the partially-detached cuffs on the dress-what’s the point?  Can’t stand her but I’d cut a bitch for her bod.

  • MinAgain

    She bores me.

  • Mauricio González del Castillo

    Blasphemy! SHE at the Iconic mirrored Chanel straircase.

  • marlie

     Something tells me that she’d actually be a riot to hang out with.

  • Janey

    I JUST LOVE POSH SPICE SO MUCH. I love her style I love her clothes I love HER.

    She’s kinda on my unconditional love list and I don’t even know why.

  • quiltrx

    I almost fell off the couch laughing at her and Uncle Karl…that picture rules!

    Caption:  “No, you will NEVER be worthy enough to smell our fabulous shit.”

  • nannypoo

    She needs to relax. She says she doesn’t like her face when she smiles. Well, I don’t like her face when she looks like this. So there.

  • silaria

    I like how Lagerfeld is basically a prop.  “Vicki in blue dress, Vicki with glasses, Vicki with Lagerfeld…”

  • Kris Zwack

    Ug. Whatever. And Unkle Karl can go fuck himself. There are more interesting designers…and better human beings. Really, what does he have going for him? (Money, I know.)

  • DesertDweller79

    I love the photo of vicki (sans pants) and Karl.  It is fabulously ridiculous.  Or ridiculously fabulous?

  • snookums lynn

    that aint just any mirrored staircase, ain’t that Coco’s staircase? I’d be absurdly wearing whatever if I ever got the chance to grace that staircase!!!!

  • Kate Lorenz

    LOL, I kind of love this sassy schoolmarm bitchface look for some reason.

  • Marie Ee

    “fit of pique” i can’t stop laughing.

    • Melvis Velour

      I am SO glad someone else loves this expression as much as Francine of Beverly Hills and I do.  It’s definitely one that should be brought back to common use!

  • l_c_ann

    And there I thought that the words “Creme du Botox” right next to her face might be the cause of her irritation. 

    Don’t tell me Elle didn’t do that on purpose!

  • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    I love that the dress she has on the cover is modest.  And then she’s sans pants inside the magazine.  

  • Ass Kicking Adviser

    Love that blue dress – LOVE!

  • Renate Yerkes

    Me tooooo! I love Posh Spice!

  • bluefish

    The old House of Chanel staircase, right?  I like many of her clothes — like their simplicity — but find her indigestable.

  • Rhonda Shore

    love it but miss her short hair, it suited her so perfectly.

  • librarygrrl64

    As annoying as she can be, I love her designs.

  • amf0001

    if you have to be photographed without your pants,  you may as well have Karl Lagerfield beside you…
