I don’t know if I totally understand — or ever even knew — how Paris Vogue and French Vogue are different. That being said, they let Posh here guest-edit the December/Jan issue and bless her for putting herself on the cover. I feel like there was a conversation that included the line: “Screw you, Anna Wintour, I’m doing this.” And, honestly, it turned out kind of great. Self-indulgent, but great.
Fugger: Posh & Becks
It’s Friday. It’s almost the weekend, but not quite. Remember those old “inspirational” posters with a cat dangling from a tree that said, “Hang In There”? I want to make one for you with this photo.
I truly think that Posh Spice is the only person in the world who can wear the MOST ENORMOUS vest/coat this side of the Collected Works of Bea Arthur and still sort of sell it:
I would look like I escaped captivity in the asylum by using my sleeves to create a ladder to clamber out my window.
I am sure “The Global Fund” is a worthy cause — Colin Firth is at this event, and I firmly believe that everything Colin Firth does is wonderful and just — but it keeps reminding me of this:
This is one of Posh’s own designs, and it is pretty much the antithesis of everything she’s worn for the entire rest of her existence on this planet. Probably including her four pregnancies.
It’s insane. It’s a quilted smock. Maybe it’s good for sweat absorbency? And listen, we sympathize: We are TIRED. We would love to be wearing a giant periwinkle cloud that hides all the sandwiches we’ve been eating at odd hours. In fact, we might want to put that on and watch football all day today and wake up tomorrow with Ruffles still on our hair. (No judgement. Just snacking.) But we would not strap on our nicest booties and wear it into our chauffeured car, or even admit that we owned it to anyone but each other and our nearest, dearest loved ones. This dress feels like the secret only the Becks boys (and Harper) know. Then again, maybe I should be applauding Victoria for having the balls to wear this hilarrible tent, and for all we know, those are not her nicest booties at all. So. Beer me.

Yes, you’re seeing this right: We were two feet away from Reigning Fug Madness Champion Justin Bieber. Here is how it all went down, and no, I did not get to ask him any illuminating questions about crotches. I did NOT notice that he is TRYING TO GROW A MUSTACHE OH MY GOD IT IS NOT WORKING JUSTIN, and now I feel like I betrayed the people by not discussing that in the post.
– At Tracy Reese, we talked to Meghan Markle about the suits (and other outfits) on Suits;
– Rihanna didn’t show up at Zac Posen, but Christina Hendricks did, and what do you know: She looked mostly nice.
