Victoria Beckham was a surprise guest at London Fashion Week yesterday, taking front row at the Burberry show. But it wasn’t her frock (from her own collection) that made headlines, it was her skinny frame.
The Daily Mail said Victoria “looked more gaunt than ever”, while the Daily Star went as far as saying the mum-of-three was “starving herself”. We don’t agree with that, but we do say that Posh is looking thinner than she has in years.
The fashionista sat next to newly-brunette Agyness Deyn in the front row at the Burberry show. Other celebs watching the action included Emma Watson, Gwyneth Paltrow and Liv Tyler, and Slumdog Millionaire couple Dev Patel and Frieda Pinto.
Afterwards, there was no doubt that Victoria was the guest of honour among all those A-listers, as stars including Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Pixie Geldof and Stella McCartney lined up to chat to her at the exclusive after-show dinner in Mayfair.
But one dinner Victoria didn’t make recently was a Spice Girls reunion dinner. The other four girls met in London recently to discuss the possibility of reforming for a second time, as Geri Halliwell revealed on ITV’s This Morning:
“Fundamentally we are friends first and foremost. We started out that way, that very strong friendship, and whatever happens afterwards is a bonus,” Geri said.
“We always talk about creative plans and possibilities, definitely. And yes, right now, we are gathering information and thinking about possibilities. But when you’re evolving a plan you don’t share it to the world until it’s concrete.”
