If ever I had to pick out one of the spice girls to be mega famous and marry a internationally famous footballer I would never have guessed it to be Victoria Beckham.
When the Spice Girls were around I always loved Baby Spice aka Emma Bunton and did not really think much of Posh, she was probably my least favourite. After Vic's poor singing career she seems to take a back seat for a while and focussed on modelling and other such things.
Victoria Beckham is not only stunning but is also very skinny. some may say too skinny.
In recent times Victoria has starred in her own documentary, which was very poor indeed. The show seemed fake and rather silly really, I was quite disappointed in this as I really liked her and it make me dislike her a bit.
Victoria is also well known for her ever changing hair. She has been long, short, brown and blonde and has suited all of her hair styles, including her new very very short crop!
By my calculation Vic will be around 34 now and I think she looks fab, even though she has had 3 children and suffered publically after the headlines about her hubby's affair with the now famous Rebecca Loos!
Whatever will we see next from this woman - fingers crossed it wont be singing again!!
I'm writing a review for the book by Victoria Beckham,
That extra half an inch'
Hair, heels and everything inbetween
I didn't think much to Victoria Beckhams attempt at solo singing! But I have always thought she has style, even when the other Spice Girls looked like Chavs she wore her LBD(little black dress)
So when it was announced she was releasing a style guide in 2006 I was very excited!
The RRP was £20 but most places such as WHSmith and Waterstones had it on various offers so I think I ended up paying around £12.99 which isn't bad for a pretty hardback book.
The book itself is gorgeous, its a hardback book, mainly silver with pink writing and an image of Victoria in a frilly dress.
The two inside pages have a lovely delicate leaf pattern, the whole design of the book shows she really is a girly girl.. like me!
It really would look lovely on any girls bookcase.
Its 312 pages long so plenty to read along with some gorgeous pictures to look at!
Right, so onto the content:
These are the chapters of the book
* Skirts and Day Dresses
* Special occasions
* Pregnancy and Post pregnancy
* Make up and Hair
* Where to Buy
On every double page spread theres some writing, quotes and lovely photographs.
Every now and then theres collages of Victorias favourite photos of herself from when she was little to her wedding photos to photos of her performing in the Spice Girls.
There are also lovely fashion illustrations, some by famous designers.
Each page is decorated with little swirly girly patterns and illustrations, it really is a pleasure just to flick through for design ideas.
Any girl who's interested in fashion would love this book, it would make a great present as it is just so beautiful! I can't stress that enough, It just wouldn't have the same impact on the reader if it wasn't put togther as it is. Its almost like a scrapbook of fashion ideas and photographs.
The book also contains quotes about Victoria and her style from designers such as Matthew Wiiliamson and Manolo Blahnik.
I know a lot of people would expect her to recommend designer clothes us mere mortals could never afford but that isn't the case, for example she says for childrens clothes she loves GAP and loves charity shops for vintage buys for herself!
So its a realistic book too, the make up brands she uses are not crazily priced either she loves nivea cream!
All in all, its a very useful book to have around, plenty to read, lots of lovely pictures what more do you need in a book?
I love this book and just flicking through to review it for you I've decided I'm starting to read it again tonight!!
Do you think Victoria and David would be able to bring their children up to have a normal life in America? With all the media around them? I don't think they will! I mean how can you possible raise children up in a place that they are so well known? They wont be able to be children without the media watching them all the time! Lets face it children are prone to getting into trouble at one point in there life thats how we learn and they will have that pressure put on them to keep the media from having any ammo! I don't think they will get left alone at all, also what if something happens to them? Because they are well known anything could happen there is some cruel people in this world! And there are some people who don't care who they hurt to have their own way!
Besides how can they even know who their true friends are when everyone will just be after there money. I really don't think this will be good for the children and I don't believe Victoria and beckem have really thought about this very hard.
Victoria Beckham, some people would love to be her and some people loathe her. What I cannot understand is why so many of the famous are judged by what we read in the papers and magazines. Yeah ok, perhaps because thats all they let us know about their lives but come on, would you let a film crew follow you round 24/7 just so that people realised that you did live like a "Normal" person and didnt judge you and slag you down. I dont think so....... I think Victoria Beckham is a lovely person, sometimes she seems a bit stuck up but deep down, on some of the shows I have watched about her she just seems to love her Husband (well who wouldnt) and her kids more than life itself. She isnt worried about her career all of the time, if she has time she will do things, I think she knows that it is gradually fizzing out but good on her for keeping it going. Some people look up to the famous and I think that despite her having more money than what she knows what to do with she is a nice person who you never see in the papers for having a drug, drink, eating problem which is what most famous are doing these days, I think she is an ideal role model for some women. Just a thought :)
Hmm, Victoria Beckham first started off as the sassy one in the Spice Girls. The one with abit of class and managed to wear unique outfits without looking like a hooker gone wrong. Then she bagged the footballer, fair play but what happens when you put two people together with egos bigger than Vanessa Feltz's posterior. Disaster. Most relationships are made up of balance, one will be a spend thrift, the other a bargain hunter, balancing out the two people to reach perfect harmony. If Victoria knows the word budget I would be very much suprised. I do not think it is out of jealousy that people dislike and mock everything she does as I come across famous people in my job who also take the cronic mickey out of her. If the woman thought that her old reputation and wedge of cash could turn her musical drivvle into something we would buy. I should think the only reason her first single got to number two was because she sent Elton John down to HMV with his gold card. For a woman who is fed up of the newspapers reporting on everything she does, she seems to make it easy pickings for them. Victoria should concentrate on her kids and family, forget everyone else and be taught what the word "BUDGET" means.
Live a word in this context used to describe a band or a musician playing in front of an audience with no mechanical help apart from a microphone. This must be news to victoria beckham, who in party in the park last year decided to put a new meaning to the world live. She decided actually not to sing at all, but to mime. Yes mime, all she did was dance around opening her mouth to look like she was singing. This disgusts me as people go to watch a band or an artist to hear them play music, not to watch them dance around the stage miming. Of course some people might say well with a dance routine like that how to you expect her to sing? Well these doubters answer me this would you go to see a professional singer just to watch them dance? Anyway if the dance routine was so hard why didn't she adapt it so she could sing live? The answer is as well all know is that she can not sing and in the spice girls she probably did not sing a solo in any of their songs. I will leave you with my final question how did Victoria Beckham get into the spice girls in the first place? Not for her singing abilities that is for sure, for her looks? Well she is a pretty face, but if that is the reason why isn't sarah michelle gellar in a band or Pamela Anderson? Well to be true I think only god knows.
Well Victoria Beckham has got to be one of the most well-know women on the planet. With her celebrity husband David, they make the medias perfect couple. Over the years she has risen through the ranks, from girl band chic, to solo artist (tiste). Here’s my opinion of her: Why do I think she is a good person? · Some of her some can be quite good, and she picks good artists to duo with. · She is nice to look at! · Her husband is a national hero, is that a valid reason? · She does a lot of charity stuff, shows good side of her personality, then don’t all big name celebs? · She handles the intense media coverage very well Now that’s over with, why don’t I like Mrs.Beckham: · She is Posh, so I cannot relate to her very well. Hmm. Yes. · She dresses like a tart and should have more respect for herself. · Most of her single songs are pants, and Kylie nailed her recently. Haha · She sometimes pushes David in to the lime light just for her own benefit Summary She’s a pretty lady, but doesn’t look very packed upstairs. Oh and yes, this is MY OPINION OF HER, "My opinion" been the key words. So there no need for my to recit the her entire career history. And also, if your reading Posh, do not take offence :)
