VICTORIA BECKHAM X REEBOK!

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017
Designer and beauty icon, Victoria Beckham, is teaming up with athletic giant, Reebok, for an exclusive Reebok x Victoria Beckham collection.  Dressed head-to-toe in athleisure, Beckham posted pictures of her first day of work with the brand, in front of its new Boston headquarters.  In a prepared statement she said, “I am incredibly excited to embark on this partnership built on shared values. I have always championed instilling confidence in women and Reebok is a brand that has been at the forefront of this same message for decades,” adding, “To have the opportunity to challenge the traditional notions of fitness wear within a fashion context is something I have always wanted to do.”  In contrast to her Posh Spice, stiletto-wearing persona of the late 1990’s, Beckham admits that sportswear has become an important part of her wardrobe and daily life.  The Reebok x Victoria Beckham collection will be targeted towards “strong, real women.”

 

VICTORIA BEKCHAM’S BEAUTY SERIES (VOL. 3)

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

On Tuesday, Victoria Beckham released a third video in her Beauty Series, promoting her cosmetics collaboration with Estée Lauder, VBxEstéeLauder.  Captioned, “Don’t Be Afraid of Pink, Ladies,” Beckham shares her take on three pink beauty products with the limited-edition Crème Blush in Blonde Mink, Lip Pencil in Victoria, and Matte Lipstick in Burnished Rose.  The takeaway:  applying the crème blush on the top of the cheeks, end of the nose, and center of the chin will give a “sun kissed feel about things” — without the sun, of course!  Beckham’s first two videos, launched the previous week, garnered more than twenty million views in one week, according to Estée Lauder.

NYFW: THE RETURN TO ANOREXIC CHIC!

Sunday, September 11th, 2016

anorexic-chicIn spite of last season’s proclamations, there appears to be a return to anorexic chic on New York Fashion Week’s runways.  Case in point is Victoria Beckham’s 2017 spring/summer show (above), where emaciated teenaged models wore clothes which only accentuated their frail figures.  According to Sarah Vine, whose scathing editorial appeared in the Daily Mail, “despite the occasional hype about this or that plus-sized model, regular attempts by the industry to encourage a more normal-sized aesthetic are mere window dressing. Truth is, most designers are incorrigible: they would sooner be spotted in last season’s trousers than send a single curve down the runway.”

What happened to the uptick in plus-sized models featured or even starring in mainstream fashion campaigns?  And what about France’s new laws enacted to help “curb anorexia rates and promote healthier body images”?  As you may recall, one even required models to present a doctor’s certificate of health prior to walking the catwalk; another required magazines and advertisements to to post “touched up” on photoshopped campaigns   Vine explains, “To be taken at all seriously in the cut-throat world of high fashion — the world of tiny A-listers and stick-thin fashion editors such as Anna Wintour — you have to be skin and bones.”
