Victoria Beckham May Be Mentoring Young Designers

Victoria Beckham May Be Mentoring Young Designers

Victoria Beckham dashes through the Gare du Nord train station in Paris on Thursday (December 9) to the George V hotel.

The 35-year-old fashionista, who covered up with a long trenchcoat and an oversized hat to hide from photographers, has been jetsetting around Europe to attend to family and fashion matters.

WWD caught up with Vic at the British Fashion Council Awards, and she shared that she’s drawing up plans that may have her mentoring young designers!

As she rubbed elbows with Britain’s fashion industry icons, she told WWD, “I came because I’m British and I’m proud.”

  • Nicole

    No one, i mean NO ONE else could pull this look off!!

    She is just beyond fabulous, a true modern style icon, who always does her thing, she rocked this look!

    And HUGE kudos for the fact she started wearing unknown young designers, and lending them her celebrity, and fashion icon status when we all know, tons of established houses beg her to wear their clothes. Now thats a woman who loves fashion!

  • Protected mode

    she wil mentor on what? This woman has no formal education in fashion design and she happened to make her way bcoz she married a famous footballer just in time before her muic career was fading into oblivion, then starts dopping extravagant amounts of cash on expensive designer clothes that caught the press attention , and all the designers try to kiss her ass so that their design get some press time and that’s how she get her legitimacy for mentoring ppl who maybe have more talent , but are nobodies who sat in a school and will never make it in the industry, because Victoria bechkam is a waste of space. puu-leese!

  • dee

    wait what did you just say protected mode – that she got married to david beckham because her career was fading!! wwwwhhhhhaaattt!!!
    Get your facts right they were going out when she was still already well known in both the U.K and U.S.A and he was an unknown footballer – so in actual fact she made him famous – she made him more recognised!!! so purlease you get your facts right!

    And another thing when they moved to U.S.A in 2007 – she was already known by the american public because she was in the most famous pop girl band of all time and they only knew him because he was married to HER – the american public and press even call him MR. POSH SPICE!!!

    So once again get your facts right!!! so purlease!!!

    David Beckham was, at 21, a talented Manchester AND England international player when Simon Fuller and Victoria calculatedly went to his League game in 1997 at which he had scored and introduced themselves to him!!
    He had already established his name and had distinguished himself as a footballer.

    Victoria seems to be all about fame and Simon Fuller knew that from the beginning. She did not carry any weight on her own and was not even the one that got the attention of the media as a Spice girl. She was outshone by the others.

    She (and Simon) used his club and his name to get the attention in the first place and to stand out in order to get attention and publicity..

    After their first meeting where David just said a few words, Victoria appeared in a magazine by posing in a Manchester United team strip in a magazine with the caption that she liked the looks of David Beckham.
    Victoria then went up to Manchester in March to this charity game on her own accord (without David having had any contact with her since their first meeting or any knowledge that she would attend and even though she was already in a steady relationshp with someone else) to see David again as a follow-up to their first meeting.

    Haha she made him famous eh? yet she is the one pursuing him.
    David plays the most popular sport in the world for the most popular clubs with hundreds of millions of fans and has won many trophies and individual honours and has captained his country.

    You can call him whatever you like but David’s fame in America is due to the success of the film with the title that bears his name BECKHAM. THAT IS HOW HE WAS INTRODUCED TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC!!c as the film was successful at the box office and in 2003 the curiosity and demand for him grew he made the front page of USA Today.. That is what started his fame in America!!! and GLOBALLY….. NOT Spice Girls nor their Reunion.

    In addition Manchester United are a popular all over the world. David was among the top three world footballers in 1999 and 2001 2nd World Footballer of the Year.

    How famous are the other Girls?
    The fame AND wealth of some of David’s Manchester United and current England teammates exceed that of the other Spice Girls.

    I think Simon Fuller knows more than anyone else where Victoria would be without David as he is the SOLE director of Beckham Brand Ltd.

    Awful!

    Who is she mentoring? Her own designer jeans were a major failure. Some famous stores announced that they no longer carry her designer labels. Please give me a break!

    #4 – totally agree with your post. This woman really has no sense of humility or even or reality. She wants to mentor – about what? Who does she think she is? A completely talentless publicity seeking stick figure without formal education on anything except desperate urge to be famous – that was how she answered the ad for Spice Girls, BTW. She is a complete waste of space!!!

    She herself admitted in an Guardian interview that she cannot draw but oh, yes she knows how a dress falls! Heck I know how a dress falls too so maybe I am also a fashion designer!

    That is the extent of her “education” – if one can call it that – to being a designer. In fact, there are strong rumors that it is really Roland Mouret who is the designer of her labels and Mouret coincidentally shares an agent (Simon Fuller) with Stick Spice. Interesting, ha?!
    And now she wants to mentor other designers – maybe she just wants to steal the designs of legitimate rising talents! This cow really has a lot of nerve!

    She was the least talented of the an already talent-free Spice Girls – the one who cannot sing and just posed and pouted. Now her claim to fame is the Beckham name which she and her equally vain and publicity whorish husband are moving heaven and earth to build into a brand, including shamelessly pimping their children left and right to the paparazzis. Some people live to be in the limelight and this just suits all these tabloids which have to fill their spaces and columns, so it is a symbiotic relationship that is forced down the public’s throat. She is a WASTE of SPACE. Really delusion of grandeur and completely shameless and no sense of propriety. What fashion sense? Anyone with her money and access to designers can be fashionable and stylish – and designers want the press time. She is just a walking clothes hanger polluting space. Complete pouting cow.

    oh I did see a pic of her smiling and she looked like a chipmunk.

    You think you are the right, the best in here and all that because you think you got the facts right..but the truth is..you are WRONG!!! Victoria was ALREADY FAMOUS at the time she met Beckham..and the REASON why she went to the football game and met Beckham in the fisrt place, and then appear in a Magazine with a Man U shirt is because the Spice Girl were to have a photoshoot to appear in the FOOTBALL MAGAZINE with their supposedly beloved club and favourite players!! In fact…the photoshoot for the magazine was made BEFORE SHE FIRST MET BECKS!! The interviews were made LONG before she met him..only the timing made the cover coming out after she met him! And PUHLEEEESEE… Did you EVER READ Beckham autobiography or watch and read ANY of their interview??!! Everyone knows that Beckham ALREADY IN LOVE WITH VICTORIA BEFORE THEY’RE MET..when he saw her on TV!! While at the time VICTORIA DIDN’T EVEN KNOW HIM AND BARELY CARES ABOUT MANCHESTER UNITED

    David cheated on her just like Tiger

  • boo

    hey look it’s inspector gadget !

  • fdss

    She chose David out of a football sticker book the year before.
    The photoshoot for the magazine was made and the mention of David was made because she had already chosen David from the album with well-known footballers and their clubs.
    She already announced to the world that she was A WAG in that magazine with the CAPTION and by going out of her way to fManchester to find him while she was already dating someone else.
    That was not coincidence. She already knew who he was and had met him. It is in her book!!

    She was famous as a celebrity Spice girl and unknown to the football world in the same way that David was not known or identifiable to the showbiz world. She was hardly recognisable outside of being with the Girls. They even had a few dates without being papped > It was when they really started appearing together that she started getting this attention as the INDIVIDUAL..

    David’s football has carried this brand from the beginning. You from this pro-Victoria lbby seem to be in denial about that.

    I woukld love to see the brand sheand Simon Fuller would have been able to build with this person she was dating at the time or the junkie she dated before that!!
    FACT is that David s did not go to any showbiz or Spice Concert to find her even after he first met her she went out of her to Manchester to find him. HE DID NOT NEED TO.
    After the Spice Girls split he was at the peak of his career which as #4 says carried her as her music career was fading in oblivion.

    Celebrities use football, footballers, their clubs, games and the popularity of the sport for more fame, attention, publicity to broaden their appeal and that is exactly what Victoria and Simon were doing when they went to that League game in 1997 in London and introduced themselves to David.

  • fdss

    It does not matter how you want to spin it, David attracted the interest and attention of celebrity and others because of his outstanding performance as a footballer. THAT was obviously how he came to Victoria’s attention and the people who were managing/working with the Spice Girls and THAT WAS WHY THEY WENT TO STAMFORD BRIDGE SAND INTRODUCED THEMSELVES TO HIM !!! He did not try get in touch with her before that as far as I know!
    David’s parents witnessed both occasions when Victoria approached David in the players’ lounge in London and Manchester and it is all in Victoria’s book.

    David had already won two trophies with his club even BEFORE The Spice Girls found fame in 1996 and was already a regular player by the time the club won the 1995 – 1996 Premiership title and the FA Cup, in which he scored the winning goal to take them to the final.

    He was referred to as the Manchester United “boy wonder” after his great half-way line goal and had acquired a level of fame on his own having been named Premiership footballer of the month for August 1996 and being called up to the England squad simultaneously (ahead of the other English midfielders in the team).

    That was why he obviously attracted the attention and interest of the showbiz celebrity world who went to meet him at Stamford Bridge – because of his individual and outstanding performance as a footballer.

    Cantona was much older so of course he could not be as famous as him. David was only 21 at the time. After Cantona left the club, he EARNED the coveted number 7 because of his performances on the pitch!!

    David Beckham was already a popular player in 1997.
    He was the Prof Footballers Association Young Player Of The Year and he was second to Alan Shearer (a striker) in the overall PFA Premiership Footballer of the Year.

    He was popular with the fans as he won the Manchester United Player of the Year Award (Matt Busby Award).

    His rising fame and popularity (on and off the pitch) and any individual honours was purely because of his footballing skills and overall performance as a player.

    What a strange world with bizarre values we live in.The world is rife with war, famine,poverty and environmental catastrophe. Babies are dying for the want of food and water etc and yet these people live a life of selfish, useless indulgent luxury because one can kick a ball and the other became a singer ( who couldnt sing) and only talent is to be able to use manipulate and caplitalize upon others.The gullible , dumbed down sad people who fall for it want to get a life.One just wonders at where all these false useless values will lead to?
