Victoria Beckham Contemplates Menswear, Shoe Collections

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Fashion Designers, News,

Victoria BeckhamConsidering her tremendous, successful transition from pop star to fashion designer, it was always just a matter of time before Victoria Beckham ventured into more than womenswear - and now it seems like it will be sooner than later!

When sitting down for a chat at the Parsons’s John L. Tishman Auditorium for students on Monday, the designer formally known as Posh confirmed that she's interested in pursuing both a shoe collection and men's clothing:

“You know, I do want to start a shoe collection. If anybody here is a shoe designer, please do come and see me! I definitely think shoes is probably the next category that I’ll look at going into; it’s quite a competitive category but I would love to go into [it]... I’d love to do menswear at some point, absolutely. I get very inspired by menswear - [my Spring 2014 collection] was very inspired by men’s tailoring, and there’s the boy-meets-girl fashion message throughout the whole collection.”

So... any shoe designers looking for a job out there?

Skype Debuts Trailer for Victoria Beckham Doc

Victoria BeckhamCalling all Victoria Beckham worshipers!

Fans of the Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer will have the chance to see what went on behind the scenes of her stylish operation during New York Fashion Week Fall 2013. Teaming up with Skype, Victoria had cameras follow her around à la day-in-the-life style for her upcoming documentary, Five Years - The Victoria Beckham Fashion Story.

Although it's not quite a rags-to-riches story (she was Posh Spice, after all), the 39-year-old indicates in the trailer (seen after the jump!) that her pop star-to-fashion designer journey was not an easy one: "I always dreamed of designing a collection; it was always my passion. I was a Spice Girl married to a footballer. I was trying to do something that no one had really done before."

There's no word yet as to when the complete documentary will be released, but Skype claims that it's "coming soon."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, News,

David BeckhamDavid Beckham was named Most Stylish Man at the annual German GQ Men of the Year Awards last night.

The retired soccer pro looked dapper in a black suit as he accepted the fashionable honor at a ceremony in Berlin, Germany, where he was praised for his ever-evolving style. Jose Redondo Vega, editor of GQ Germany, told the crowd, "Like no other athlete, David Beckham represents style and fashion influence. With his trendsetting and sometimes daring appearances he has created a bridge between the world of design, models, and photographers, and the world of world class sports, and brought glamour back to a male sport."

The 38-year-old hunk picked up his accolade just two days after his wife Victoria Beckham, 39, scooped the Special Contribution to British Fashion award at the annual Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year Awards in London. The esteemed fashion designer was joined on the red carpet by her and David's eldest son, Brooklyn, 14.

David and Victoria - who also have sons Romeo, 11, Cruz, eight, and two-year-old daughter Harper - are known for their impeccable fashion taste. While Victoria has won acclaim for her eponymous fashion label, David has his own best-selling bodywear line for H&M.


Naomi Campbell: I’ve Got Nothing Against Victoria Beckham

Naomi Campbell and Victoria BeckhamNaomi Campbell insists she never tried to "pin-point" Victoria Beckham as racist.

The 43-year-old supermodel launched a campaign to expose racial discrimination in the fashion industry last month and published an open letter with a list of fashion houses "accused of being guilty," with the former Spice Girls star one of those criticized for using just one non-white model in her London Fashion Week Show. However, Naomi insists she meant nothing personal against Victoria and even called her directly to discuss the problem in the industry as a whole.

"I called Victoria and I spoke to her. I don't want to pin-point anyone. It isn't a blame game. Everyone's name was on that letter because they'd done it. It could have been completely unintentional. She is one of the designers on there like anyone else."

The document - which was addressed to the governing bodies of the fashion industries in New York, London, Paris and Milan - also criticized various, labels including Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Chanel, Armani, Gucci, Saint Laurent, Roberto Cavalli and Marc by Marc Jacobs, for not using models of color but Naomi insists she wasn't worried about upsetting her friends in the industry.

Victoria Beckham Doesn’t Put on Make-Up in Front of Harper

Victoria Beckham with her daughter HarperVictoria Beckham doesn't apply make-up around her daughter to prevent her from copying her.

The 39-year-old fashion designer is so wary about 22-month-old Harper - who she has with husband David Beckham - picking up on her actions that she avoids putting on beauty products around the toddler to ensure she doesn't feel left out.

"I can't put on make-up when Harper's around, because she would join me immediately. She is a tomboy towards her brothers," she said.

Victoria admits she is aware of the pressure her children - also including three sons Cruz, eight, Romeo, 10, and Brookyln, 14 - are under while having famous parents, but makes sure they know they can do good with their celebrity status and doesn't spoil them: "[Cruz asked] 'Why is it good to be famous, mum?' My answer was, 'When you're famous you have a certain power to do good things.' That is how we started talking about charity. Cruz was really sweet and said, 'When people listen to what I say, I could spread some good messages.' The kids are under a lot of pressure to perform. I don't want to pressure them. They should be keen and reach as much as possible. But the most important thing is they are happy. They lead a very privileged life but they don't get everything they ask for. We always tell them how lucky they are."
