Just so her fans are aware, Victoria Beckham will not be participating in another Spice Girls reunion, nor will she be doing another fragrance with her husband, David Beckham. But the designer, who’s launching a full range of shoes next summer and just won brand of the year honors at the British Fashion Awards, still has plenty on her plate.

She is launching a limited-edition nail-polish collection with Nails Inc. for her Victoria Victoria Beckham line. The partnership, which will prelaunch on nailsinc.com starting on Monday, will roll out to stores in February. It marks her product debut in the color cosmetics market.

“I have a strong eye and a strong opinion,” Beckham told WWD. “So, when the time is right, I would love to do [more] beauty [projects in the future].”

The assortment will include a classic hue called Bamboo White, Beckham’s go-to shade for all her runway shows, and a tomato red, named Judo Red, which matches her Japanese-inspired spring collection. Also, instead of using Nails Inc.’s usual clear bottles, which were designed by Fabien Baron, Beckham chose one matte-white bottle and one matte-black bottle that have a matching cap and side windows that reveal the actual nail color.

The collaboration features a formulation called Stretch to Fit, which is inspired by the dresses in Beckham’s spring collection. Given the clothing’s Japanese influence, Nails Inc. added bamboo extract to strengthen nails.

Having recently been appointed as a UNAIDS Global Goodwill Ambassador, World Aids Day is something close to Victoria Beckham’s heart.

That’s why VB has created a limited edition T-shirt featuring a screen printed World AIDS day ribbon logo that the designer is selling in her Dover Street store.

Priced at £90, not only is this a Victoria Beckham original that we can actually afford, but it’s for a good cause too, with all proceeds from the sale of the shirts going to the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS to support their aim in ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030. Money truly well spent.

Taking to Twitter today, VB has been encouraging her fashion bunnies to support World AIDS Day by wearing a ribbon – which can be found on sale at her store for £1, as well as, of course, around the country.

‘My personal commitment to raise awareness and resources to end the AIDS epidemic is one that is shared by my brand and we wanted to mark World AIDS Day with an initiative that my customers could also participate in,’ Victoria said of creating the T-shirt.
The T-shirts are available from today until December 31st.

Melanie Janine Brown, better known as Mel B or Scary Spice, admits she’s always had a bit of a crush on herself. A few weeks ago she turned up at Jonathan Ross’s fancy dress Halloween party as Scary Spice. “I put on a massive wig, the boots, and Julien Macdonald made me a really sexy leopardskin catsuit.” Her friend Leigh Francis, who was responsible for a brutally funny impression of her on his TV show Bo’ Selecta!, didn’t realise it was the real Brown behind the hair. “He goes to me, ‘Bloody hell, you look like a good Scary Spice’, and I’m like, ‘Leigh, I’m your mate, it’s me’, and he goes, ‘Who the fuck dresses up as themselves?’ and I went, ‘Me!’ and he went, ‘Exactly!’”

As Scary, Brown was the Spice Girl you didn’t mess with; tough, sexy, funny, filthy, hard work. Although Francis’s parody of Mel B is extreme – leopardskin bra and knickers, huge glasses that slide down her nose, huge mouth that split her face in two, and a Yorkshire accent broad as the Dales – it is unerringly close to the real thing. As I walk up the stairs of the London studio where she is having her photo taken, I hear a roar of laughter. Mel B is in the house – swapping from Prada dress to black tailored jumpsuit to ribbed roll-neck jumper, complaining that her surgically enhanced boobs look too big, telling her teenage daughter Phoenix (who’s here for support) she loves her, showing off the £20,000 renewal wedding ring her husband, film producer Stephen Belafonte, has just bought her.

As Scary Spice, Brown had a raw beauty. Today, the tongue stud has gone, the hair is straightened and the leopardskin catsuit replaced with shirt and trousers. She could pass for the fanciable if forbidding CEO of a public company.

By her standards, Brown has been virtually invisible for the past decade – living in Los Angeles, bringing up her three daughters, establishing herself as an entrepreneur (she part owns a bottled water company). But even at her most withdrawn, she’s done her bit to keep the tabloids in business. So there have been the lesbian affairs, the alleged threesomes, the relationship with Eddie Murphy, the DNA test over the child who proved to be his, the marriage to Belafonte, the “love of her life”, who has a criminal record for domestic violence. And occasionally she has been in the newspapers for her work – starring in the musical Rent and The Vagina Monologues, appearing as part of the re-formed Spice Girls one-off at the London Olympics, producing her own reality show, and judging America’s Got Talent and Australia’s X Factor.

When it was announced earlier this year that she was returning to the UK to judge The X Factor at home, nobody seemed too interested. After all, the big news was that Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini (formerly Cole) were returning to boost flagging audience figures. Mel B was very much an addendum. But that’s not the way things have turned out. While the TV audience has criticised Fernandez-Versini’s simpering, and complained that Cowell has lost his nasty edge, Brown has proved herself the most watchable judge. She has been direct, mouthy, and at times very funny. The show’s most memorable lines have come from her – whether it’s telling 16-year-old Lauren Platt, after she had sung How Will I Know, “I’m so excited right now I could slap you”, or suggesting she’d be up for mud wrestling with Fernandez-Versini (“That’s quite hot, I’d like to do that”), or telling Ben Haenow he made her want to go home and ravish her husband.

Brown says she was desperate to be on The X Factor. So much so, she flew from Australia to London at her own expense, turned up at Cowell’s offices, and pitched herself to him and 20 executives. “I said, ‘I’m a team player, I’m a hard worker and I’m not afraid of speaking my mind. You’re going to get a bit of Scary Spice, a bit of Confused Spice, a bit of Angry Spice, everything.’ They left it a couple of days and said, ‘OK, you’ve got the job.’”

For all the talk, Brown isn’t quite as fearless as she makes out. Even now, she’s surprised when people tell her she’s a hit on The X Factor. “I know I’m not everybody’s cup of tea. I’m just me.” She was worried about coming over as too hard, so there has been a concerted effort to change her image: she dresses more elegantly, and has tried to cut down on her dirty talk. It hasn’t always worked, and this is part of her appeal – the tension between the remodelled, motherly Brown, and the uncontrollable, potty-mouthed Mel B of old.

David Beckham has revealed how the Achilles injury which wrote off a World Cup for the football star helped him to realise the depth of his bond with wife Victoria.

The ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder said that as he told fashion designer Victoria about the disastrous tendon problem he realised he ‘had a wife that really understood me’.

He talks about the incident in a new unseen interview which is part of the DVD release of his BBC adventure documentary David Beckham Into the Unknown, following his travels through the Brazilian rainforest.

His Achilles injury occurred as he played for AC Milan in the months leading up to the 2010 World Cup finals, in which he had desperately hoped to represent England again.
Beckham said: ‘I felt my Achilles had gone – there was a huge hole in it. And the doctor came over to me and he gave me the phone.

‘Victoria was on the phone and she said: “What’s just happened?” And I said to her “It’s done”. And she said, “What do you mean it’s done?”

‘And I remember, I’ll never forget, she just burst out unconditionally with emotion and crying – when someone just kind of can’t get their breath. She literally handed the phone to one of the boys and the boys were upset.’

He went on: ‘That was one of the points when I knew I had a wife that really understood me and really understood why I was doing it.
‘She knew how much it meant to me, she knew how much playing in a fourth World Cup meant to me. That was a tough time for me.’

Beckham, who married former Spice Girl Victoria in 1999, filmed the documentary in the run-up to the World Cup in Brazil this summer.

In other interviews which did not feature in the version of the film broadcast on BBC1, the father-of-four also talks about his cookery skills and the treats he prepares for the family.

‘When I was in Italy the culinary course was one of the things I always wanted to do. So I had the time and I thought, why not? The kids love Italian, so I can make fresh pasta from scratch. Victoria is easy. She loves vegetables and she loves salad, so Victoria’s easy.’

The DVD is released Monday by BBC Worldwide.

Former Spice Girl Mel C has sold more than 12 million records as a solo artist since the band split in 2000.

She has also performed in musicals Jesus Christ Superstar and Blood Brothers.

Now 40, Mel lives with her five-year-old daughter, Scarlet, in London.

She reveals how she spends her weekends.

“My daughter Scarlet is in year one now, so school is getting serious. We chill out and watch a movie on Friday nights. She’s allowed to stay up a little bit later and she loves movies such as Frozen.

“On Saturday mornings I like to do a nice, fun breakfast. I’ve just had a new kitchen put in, so I’m very much into cooking at the moment.

I have been making muffins, pancakes and homemade granola. I had my dad to stay recently and I loved getting the table ready with lots of different fruit and cereals and things – I’m like a little B&B.

“I might do a yoga class if I can fit it in and, after that, Saturday is a really good day to get Scarlet together with some of her friends. We might visit a little local fair or the park. We went to a Witch Academy at the London Eye recently where they gave a lesson on how to be a witch!

“Saturday night is X Factor night, so we’ll watch that to see how my friend Mel B is doing as a judge. Once Scarlet’s gone to bed, if I have someone like my dad staying, we’ll cook a lovely meal and open a bottle of wine.

“If Scarlet is staying with her father for the weekend, I’ll have a long, girlie lunch with friends on Sunday. We usually sit there all afternoon putting the world to rights over a few drinks.

“If Scarlet is with me we’ll have more of a family day. Then it’s an early night before the busy week starts.”

She might have turned 40 this year but Sporty Spice is showing no signs of slowing down.
Nearly fifteen years after the Spice Girls came onto the scene, Mel C is still lamenting the days of Girl Power, raising concerns about bringing up her daughter Scarlet in a selfie-obsessed generation (which, by the way, she calls total b*llocks).

We sat down with former Spice Girl to talk about the legacy of the most famous girl-group and their influence on fourth-wave feminism (as well as her first Christmas up north with Scarlet and her family).

And yes, we were fangirling the WHOLE time. #GirlPower

Mel C – real name Melanie Chisholm – currently lives in London’s Primrose Hill with her 5-year-old daughter Scarlet, but the pair are heading up north to spend Christmas with Mel’s relatives in Merseyside.

It’s actually Scarlet’s first Crimbo up north so the pair are VERY excited to be getting out of the Big Smoke (here’s hoping they get some snow!)

“Christmas always comes around so quickly! We’re going up north this year to see all the family. We did a London Christmas last year so I’m looking forward to getting up north,” she said.

“It’s our first northern Christmas together but we tend to do a lot of visiting throughout the year so she’s met everyone already.”

So what’s Scarlet got on her Christmas list for Santa this year? Surely when your mum’s a Spice Girl, you can ask for WHATEVER you want, right?

“She’s really into Zhu Zhu pets at the moment. Even though she doesn’t tend to play with them that much, at Christmas she wants them,” said Mel.

“She spends most of her time drawing, she loves colouring in. She’s not really into one particular thing.”

Hmm, that must save Mel some pennies! She also revealed their Xmas activities – although it will NOT be including ice-skating following a previous iced-based ‘mare.

“We went to Winter Wonderland last year but we haven’t made plans to go this year,” she said.

On the actual day (which is five Fridays away FYI, not that we’re counting), Mel says she’ll be taking a back seat and letting her mum do the Christmas cooking as she finds the whole thing a bit stressful.

“My mum makes her own cake, her own mince pies – she’s such a great cook!” she said. Sounds YUM.

Diet Regime

She’s famous for her sculpted abs and toned arms but the Spice Lady formerly known as Sporty Spice revealed she does let her diet relax a little at Christmas.

“Doesn’t everybody? I hope so! It’s like your birthday – calories don’t count,” she joked.

“Obviously we all want to be healthy, but you can’t deprive yourself, especially at Christmas. I’m not really a sweet-toothed person or a chocolate girl, but I like a Quality Street Toffee Penny at Christmas.”

But you only have to look at her Twitter feed to see that she takes her healthy lifestyle very seriously during the rest of the year (recently sharing a picture of her Paleo diet plan).

And the self-confessed fitness fanatic revealed she developed abs of steel after training for a gruelling triathlon last year.

“I got super-fit training for triathlons so a lot of training went into that. It’s hard work. Leading up to the competition, it’s six days a week [training], but not now,” she said.

“I train about three times a week now. I think because I was very competitive and did a couple of triathlons, you have this strength that remains and how much fat you have over it is how much it shows!”

Right, better sign up for the hardest physical challenge we can possibly set ourselves next year.

Actually scrap that, Ben and Jerry’s are calling our names and we can’t keep them waiting.

Spice Girls Legacy

It’s FINALLY started not to feel like a dirty word – especially with Emma Watson’s #HeForShe campaign.

And with the former Harry Potter star growing up in the ‘90s, there’s no way she could have gone until the age of 23 without being influenced by #GirlPower.
“I’m taking her to a grotto, which should be nice. We won’t be going ice skating as we went one year and it was a disaster!”

But Mel C admitted that they actually became the faces of 90s feminism by accident.

“I think with us girls, it was almost an accidental thing that happened with us,” she said.

“We were quite naïve to the fact that it was quite a male-dominated industry, as many people are, and when we started coming up against barriers, that’s where Girl Power was born.”

Appearing as Sporty Spice alongside Victoria Beckham (Posh), Geri Halliwell (Ginger), Emma Bunton (Baby) and Melanie Brown (Scary), the girls were adamant they would be as successful – if not more than – other boybands at the time.

“We were like, ‘F**k this!’. It was our motto, we were so determined and we were so appalled to be told that girl bands don’t sell and it’s all about boybands,” she said.

“That spurred us on to want to be successful but want to be for girls and to empower girls.

“The wonderful thing about Spice Girls, Girl Power, feminism, whatever you want to call it, is that made that belief more accessible to young girls.”

So what exactly does feminism mean to her now, with her Spice Girls days long behind her?

“I think feminism is different things to different people. Personally for me it’s about equality, about no-one being better than anyone else,” she said.

“No-one needs to be stronger or more aggressive or all of these things, it’s about human beings wanting and needing the same things and just striving for that.”

But she has concerns that a generation obsessed with their appearance (aka #selfie) will negatively affect her young daughter’s self-esteem.

“It has been interesting because I think culture has changed. In a way we’re all so narcissistic with selfies and Instagram and of course, when I was growing up, people didn’t have phones let alone a social media account,” said Mel.

“What bothers me is the effect things have on people. I have a little girl and what’s important for me is that she grows up with great self-esteem in herself as a person and in her physical appearance.

“I don’t want any of these external factors to affect her, because it’s bollocks.”
Told you she didn’t mince her words.
“It’s pulling in two ways – there’s the celebrity element which is all about glamour and self-promotion and then the other side which is saying it’s about authenticity,” she said.

“I have a terrible battle with celebrity because I dislike celebrity and I find it quite vulgar but it’s part of my work as well so I can’t be a hypocrite.”

To get around her internal conflict, she tries to use her celebrity status for a good cause, for example she’s working with children’s charity Barnados for their Christmas campaign with Duracell.

Could she see herself as the next Angelina Jolie, working as a UN Ambassador perhaps?

“I think Posh Spice took that role!” she joked.

She has received positive feedback from viewers thanks to her honest critiques. And Mel B was showered with even more praise from her fellow Spice Girl, Melanie C, who revealed that she is happy that audiences have taken to her pal’s judging style.

Speaking to MailOnline, Melanie said: ‘She is simply brilliant on it and I knew she would be brillian

‘She not’s trying to fulfil a role or anything like that, she’s just being herself. I think the show needed shaking up.’

And Melanie also shared her pride at yet another bandmate’s achievement as she gushed about Victoria Beckham’s rise in the fashion industry.

Mel admitted: ‘I haven’t been to see her shop yet because I’m trying not to spend too much money.
‘Victoria has done incredible things and all of us girls are just so proud of her.’

She added: ‘To think she’s gone from a pop group to doing so well in the fashion industry.
‘It’s completely unprecedented and all credit to her for the passion she has for it and for how hard she has worked on it.’

Mel also admitted that while she would love to embark on another tour with the girls, there are no immediate plans to hit the road together again.
Speaking of the demand for a tour from fans, Mel said: ‘I think for our fans it would be a really lovely nostalgia.

‘We had an amazing time in 2007 and we would love to do it again. But we’ve got kids and careers to juggle around but hopefully on day when all the stars are in alignment, we can make it happen. But there’s no plans at the moment’.

She continued: ‘There are territories that we never got to perform in like Australia, South America and other places where we really have this huge fan base. If we go on tour then it would be so great to visit them and say thank you to them.’

The singer also shared her views on the part celebrities play as role models for younger generations.
She admitted: ‘ I think it’s a very complex issue and I don’t think it’s right to blame individual people.

‘We live in a country where we have free speech and you are able to express yourself whichever way you want.

‘Now when I was in the Spice Girls, we were aware that we had extremely young fans and we were aware of our responsibilities so we tried to act as we felt was appropriate.’
She added: ‘Everyone always talks about Rihanna and Miley but what about the record labels and TV channels?

‘I love Miley and Rihanna, I think they are brilliant artists. But it’s absolutely not appropriate for my five-year-old daughter, Scarlett, to watch them doing a TV performance or a video.
‘Yes, it is my responsibility to keep her away from that but as they get older and tech-savvy, it’s harder to keep them away from it.’

Melanie also spoke about using fame to help those in need as she said: ‘Working with charities is something that’s grown over the years for me.
‘In the early days with the Spice Girl, we were approached by so many worthy causes and you just can’t do them all.

‘I try to pick causes that really resonate with me and that I feel very passionately about. Obviously, since becoming a mum I am more empathetic with children and their needs.’

Geri Halliwell announced her engagement to Formula One team boss Christian Horner in the UK newspaper The Times on Tuesday, just as Benedict Cumberbatch did last week.

“Mr C.E.J. Horner OBE and Geri Halliwell, The engagement is announced between Christian, son of Mr and Mrs G.M. Horner and Geraldine, daughter of the late Mr L.F. Halliwell and Mrs A. Parkinson,” the newspaper item stated.

The former Spice Girl followed up the announcement by tweeting her 337,000 followers her happy news.

Halliwell, 42, and Horner, 40, have been friends for several years, and made their public debut as a couple in March 2014. The pair both have children from previous relationships: the pop star has an 8-year-old daughter Bluebell and her fiance has a 1-year-old daughter Olivia.
