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…
