VICTORIA LAUNCHES A MORE AFFORDABLE LINE

God bless you Victoria Beckham! You might be ready to pop out your fourth child (yep, fourth) child but you have still manage to produce a whole new dress line aimed at the young, fun and girlie among us. Inspired by the cartoon character Emily the Strange, the dresses are loose, colourful have a definite ’60s shape. Beckham claims that the line represents her “other side,” the alter ego to her more polished and glamorous style.

“These are the kind of dresses I’ve been searching for,” she admits. “The perfect little summer dress, something that was fun, something that was girly, something that was easy to wear, something that would take you from day through the night.”

This whimsical collection is due to launch for spring 2012, with Beckham hinting at a series of major appearances, with an event to coincide with London Fashion Week also a possibility (yay!). The line is set to retail in the $550 to $900 price range, making it more accessible than her main line.

As for the rumours that she plans to pose nude for Vogue à la Demi Moore for Vanity Fair, she says: “I’m not really one of these people that likes to go out and pose and flaunt being pregnant. Not like there’s anything wrong in that. I’m so proud to be pregnant and I feel so blessed and so happy, I really do. But I’m just not that kind of person. So, no, I won’t be taking my clothes off. I don’t think anyone needs to see that, other than my husband. Absolutely not.”

MEL B: MY FAMILY VALUES

news melbnewinterview

I’m just a working-class girl from Leeds at heart. Always have been, always will be; money and success hasn’t changed that. I was born in Harehills, an inner-city suburb of Leeds, and later we lived in another part of the city, Burley, but I left home in my early teens and I learned about life by myself. My first job was dancing in Blackpool. Then in 1994, when I was 19, I joined a band called Touch, which became the Spice Girls, which was just so full on. My parents, Andrea and Martin, came to see us on tour, but we never had a lot of time together after that.

My husband, Stephen Belafonte, a producer, was a friend first. I had two children, Phoenix Chi, who’s now 12, and Angel, who’s four, and he had a daughter, Giselle, now six, by the time we became a couple. We all get on because I make sure we do. It’s a fine line between being a friend and a parent. But I’m determined that the girls grow up to be respectful. I can’t bear to see children who throw things around and don’t take care of their belongings. I guess I am very strict – I’m always telling them to tidy up their rooms and make their beds.

When the results of the DNA test came in and Angel was, in fact – no surprise – Eddie Murphy’s child, I encouraged their relationship from day one.

My littlest girl thinks she is a princess. Angel is into everything girly – princess shoes and pink dresses. She’s so sweet.

Phoenix is completely different, very curious and thoughtful. She’s also into sport and is a bit of a tomboy. She’s in sixth grade at the moment. I want to make sure all my children get well educated – every mum would like to see their children choose a decent nurturing profession, like medicine and I am no different. But I also want them to enjoy themselves, whether that means becoming a nerdy doctor or opening an orphanage or being a singer.

You have to be dedicated. We went to see Willow Smith perform live in Los Angeles, where we live. Phoenix, who is six months older than Willow, said to me, how cool is that, to be doing what she does? But I said, ‘Darling, if you wanted to be a singer now, you’d be practising all day every day in your room already – you wouldn’t be able to stop …’ But she isn’t like that, and you can’t force children, nor should you.

I have regular therapy sessions. Therapy makes you more aware of your partner. We don’t need counselling – it’s not like that. But it does make you more considerate of each other. It’s helped me to build good relationships with my daughters. It reminds you to check in with your kids every day. It is certainly not about blaming your parents – it just helps you understand events and helps you to change your attitudes and thought processes. It teaches you to respect each other.

I’m six months pregnant and Stephen and I couldn’t be happier. I am eating a lot. Luckily, Stephen is a good cook.

The Spice Girls are still a family. You can’t go through what we did so young and not have a special bond. We don’t have to see each other all the time, and we don’t have to agree on everything, but I know we will always support each other. My friends mean the world to me.”

Hard Rock’s Spice Girls Artist Spotlight T-shirts, featuring a butterfly design and the girls’ signatures, can be bought from Hard Rock cafes in London, Manchester and Edinburgh.

VICTORIA, EMMA AND MEL B AMONG THE MOST ELEGANT MUMS

news bestdressedmums

The Spice Girls have all come a long way since their days of Adidas tracksuits and Union Jack dresses.

But it is Victoria Beckham who has worked the hardest to leave her days of PVC all-in-ones and thigh-skimming dresses far behind. The former singer has earned the support of the fashion world by building up her highly successful, eponymous label, dressing A-listers including Blake Lively, Katherine Jenkins and Elle Macpherson.

And – perhaps even more impressively – she has also earned the support of her fellow mothers. The 37-year-old has topped a poll of the best dressed mums-to-be. She collected 34 per cent of the votes in a survey of 16 to 25-year-olds, conducted by online fashion retailer Josoblu.co.uk, closely followed by This Morning favourite Holly Willoughby with 28 per cent.

This is Victoria‘s fourth pregnancy, so it’s probably no surprise that she has worked out how to look her best. Most of the other pregnant celebrities on the list also already had children. But Natalie Portman and Pink also sneaked into the top eight.

Mums picked Victoria as their favourite because despite her tottering heels, she dresses well without revealing too much bump. They thought her maternity style for casual and smart occasions was perfect and that she has the balance just right.

Holly, who gave birth to her daughter Belle on April 14, was praised for her somewhat revealing style on Dancing on Ice and her practical fashion choices during the day.

Emma Bunton was another Spice Girl picked out for her stylish maternity attire, collecting 15 per cent of the vote, with TV presenter and model Myelene Klass securing 12 per cent. Both were picked out for their effortless style.

Other stars who made the list were Hollywood A-listers Jessica Alba and Natalie Portman alongside Posh’s fellow spice girl Mel B.

A spokesman from Josoblu.co.uk, said: ‘Bearing in mind she’s a fashion designer and a style icon, it’s only right that Victoria Beckham should top this poll. She always looks good, whatever the occasion, and wears pregnancy really well. Fourth time round, she should have pregnancy chic spot on, and she has. She has a dubious love of very high heels for a pregnant woman. I’m sure when she’s at home she quickly kicks of the heels and slouches around in her flats like the rest of us!”

‘Holly, Emma and Myleene have all quite rightly won places high up in the poll. All are second time mums so know how to combine stylish outfits with practical needs.

‘With toddlers and pre-schoolers they’re all too aware that light colours are a no no when mucky hands are around and jeans and pumps are perfect for a trip to the park, zoo or beach.

‘They all cleverly combine high street and designer outfits and show other mums how to dress their bump in style.’

Victoria Beckham – 34 per cent
Holly Willoughby – 28 per cent
Emma Bunton – 15 per cent
Mylene Klass – 12 per cent
Jessica Alba – 5 per cent
Natalie Portman – 3 per cent
Mel B – 2 per cent
Pink – 1 per cent
The survey of 16 to 25-year-olds was conducted by Josoblu.co.uk

VICTORIA DENIES SHE CHOOSE EVA LONGORIA TO BE HER DAUGHTER´S GODMOTHER

news evagodmother

There’s no doubt the pair are firm friends. But Victoria Beckham has denied reports she has already chosen Eva Longoria to be godmother to her unborn baby girl.

With a few weeks to go before she is scheduled to give birth to her fourth child, Posh hasn’t even begun to think about the christening yet.

Mrs Beckhams’ spokesperson denied a tabloid report today that the ex-Spice Girl had already given the honour to Longoria.

Her representative told the MailOnline: ‘Victoria has not asked Eva to be a godmother and no christening plans have been discussed at this time.

When little Miss Beckham does arrive, there will be a host of celebrity friends to chose from to become her godparents.

Along with husband David, Victoria is said to have considered other stars for the role, including Gordon and Tana Ramsay, Heidi Klum and Seal and even Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Victoria and Eva, who have been showbiz friends for four years, became even closer when the designer helped the actress through her divorce from basketball star Tony Parker earlier this year.

Victoria and David’s first two children, 12-year-old Brooklyn and Romeo, eight, count Sir Elton John and Elizabeth Hurley among their godparents.

Victoria is eight months pregnant with her fourth chid with David and is expected to give birth in her current home of Los Angeles.
