Victoria Beckham: September Issue of Glamour Magazine

Here's your Saturday and Sunday Scoop! I've been waiting for this editorial to come out in it's entirety (if I don't have all of it, I have most of it hahaha). Glamour Magazine has been releasing this spread in bits and pieces. So what am I talking about? The coveted September issue my pretties! HaHaHa Victoria Beckham not only appears on the September cover of Glamour Magazine, she was also the guest editor of it. To see the complete September issue, pick up a copy of Glamour on newsstands August 7th.

My personal thoughts on Victoria Beckham. I'll admit I was a Spice Girl FAN, but not fanatic! Girl power and I'll tell you want I want what I really really want! HaHaHa I didn't have a favorite Spice Girl. They were all cool in my book. After the group split, it was then that I was disturbed by Victoria's physical (bodily) appearance. There were times she looked deathly and scary thin.

Years ago I was very quick to judge people, but now that I'm older and wiser I have to say we don't always know what is going on with a person physically, mentally or emotionally. When you go through situations (personal, financial etc), each one of us reacts differently. We may eat more, less, and even pick up some less than stellar habits or behaviors. Of course I don't know what was going on with Victoria back then, but I do know for the past several years she has looked healthier and happier (she's even smiling more). I'm happy to see that. I also have to applaud her as a designer. To me, she's not your ordinary celebrity designer that throws a collection together for the sake of it. Her designs (to me) are truly exquisite, have substance and her collections surpass that of your regular celebrity collection! I think there's more to Victoria than we know. Please let me know YOUR thoughts on Victoria Beckham.

Oh VB... I have a lot of respect for this woman, she looks amazing in this shoot! It's a shame she can't let her guard down and smile/laugh more in public... she'd look more prettier if she did and less miserable!
Have a top weekend Kim! Enjoy the sweet stuff!

My all time favorite spice girl she is soo glamourous

I love her...I think her style is fun and creative. Everyone always gives her stick about not smiling and whatever else, but she's really actually sweet. I watched a docu with her once and she was on the floor with one of her sons chasing him in a skirt a heels, laughing away and being silly, a far stretch from what one usually sees and she explained that's how she is normally, just in public she gets nervous and just doesn't smile. I think it's a way of protecting yourself, the media is like a roaring lion, so I can't blame her for that. Her children are gorgeous as well, love the son that obviously looks like her, it's precious. Their a great family in the public eye. I don't know them personally, but they seem great. And I think getting more women to dress nice and take care of themselves is good. Her weight did go up and down, but it was at the time of great stress in her life with her husband's problems, so that's understandable. Just glad to see her more curvy now...she's gorgeous! Her and Ginger Spice were my faves, hahaha...but I love The Spice Girls still :))) Have a great weekend doll xx

She looks great! :)

Aitana said...

I love her!!!^^
it´s the GB edition or the US edition?¿? ;)


Mica said...

Great shoot - love the pic with the soccer balls!

I think she is an amazingly talented designer - her pieces are always so classic, and sadly out of my price range! It's good to see how she has reinvented herself over the years, and how much her style has changed.


Lena L said...

i've never thought much about her as designer, but i do respect her a lot. a beautiful girl with talent and brain, that is sexy! :)

Unknown said...

It was interesting to watch the video, her image has always been so icy, so it's nice to see this side of her. I think she has excellent taste and understands fashion.

I love this lady! She comes off so nice in every interview and seems like just a wonderful mother. I love how she is able to laugh at her own public photos (never smiles!).

littlemissandrea said...

When I was younger and into the Spice Girls, I really was actually afraid of Victoria Beckham cause she just never seemed to smile! I'm glad that she's gotten healthier and is living happily with her family now - definitely have a lot of respect for her as a designer too!

Coco said...

Hi Kim, in this shoot Victoria looks beautiful and radiant. On the other hand, she lacks empathy, always looking so uptight and controlled. I don't feel like judging her either, but she definitely is not one of my favourite stars...have a nice weekend sweetie :-)

Shabby, Chic, & Cheap said...

She's such a beautiful woman! I love her style and her attitude!

Project Curve said...

i had mixed feelings about her earlier..and as weird as it sounds i wasn't that into spice girls..but i like her sense of style and her collections..

Amy Aguilera said...

OMG I love her so much!
She looks gorgeous as always :)
She really has a good sense of fashion!

Jo said...

I used to love Spice Girls too and I think she's really cool. I didn't quite like her after Spice Girls days base only on what I see and read from magazines (which I know can't often be trusted). I haven't seen her smile at all and I think she really should smile more. She can still look posh while smiling.

She looks really lovely in those editorial but after scrolling for a while, I find that her poses and expressions are all almost the same. The last photo is a refreshing change for she is showing the right of her face. It seems like she favours her left side.

No offence to anyone who likes her. Please do not throw eggs at me. =D

Re my giveaway:
It’s always nice to hear from you, dear and aww, you are so lovely.

Wishing you all the best!

Oh, this is truly a lovely set of editorials! I've always admired Victoria for her polished and sophisticated looks. The Beckham family is really just beautiful.
She definitely sets herself apart from other celebrity designers in that she really seems passionate about it, rather than simply using it as another way to get her name out.

Audrey Allure said...

I adore Victoria Beckham - I definitely was a Spice Girl fan too! :)

Sarah Hartley said...

Wow, she looks totally amazing in this- especially in the black dress. I think that she's a great designer and would love to own her clothes. I do however wish she'd eat a bit more :)

Bonnie said...

I LOVE Victoria Beckham. Absolutely love her. I have since the days of the Spice Girls. I think there is much more to her than we know. She seems like she would be an awesome person.

I think she's even more Posh now than she ever was in her Spice Girl Years.

Unknown said...

She is def a style icon Kim!! I love love love her style and her collection is Amazing and I agree it's not thrown together just to say I have a clothing line. Her pieces are truly amazing and wearable!!

I would love to borrow clothes from her closet!!

MOSAMUSE said...

beautiful issue! i really like the cover photo! oh how we love september issues :)


Unknown said...

I will not deny that this woman is fabulous..but I have to admit I like to see people who are happier. I guess her whole persona just isnt my cup of tea.lol But she is beautiful and damn can that girl rock an outfit!


Head to Toe Chic said...

She looks so gorgeous! I love her sense of style.


Heather said...

She looks so gorgeous in these pictures - and definitely not so severe - she is quite beautiful!


Megan said...

While she is gorgeous, I am not a fan of her. She seems too pretentious and unapproachable. Every photo of her just seems so stiff and forced - I wish she'd relax more!

Elle Sees said...

i am loving this issue

Unknown said...

she's super gorgeous here, love the editorial shots a lot xoxo

Nelah said...

All i can say is i want her body Kim. After three kids and all she is in a GREAT shape ever. No wonder why David Beckham is wrapped around her fingers. I feel ashamed and inspired at the same time..haha. She seems to have always been a very confident lady regardless of what prople think about her, i adore that sassy attitude.

Unknown said...

she is the epitome of a stylish mom! she is just amazing... and i love that she just loves fashion. enjoyed the vid!

have a great week!

Unknown said...

As soon as I saw this spread I LOVED it! I think they did a great job and although I have not been a huge Victoria fan she has grown on me this past year for sure. (I'm waiting for the day when she smile's LOL..not holding my breathe).

It's a great inspiration for us domestic divas to dress it up in the home too. :)

Have a great week Kim! BIG BIG Summer hugs darling.



Unknown said...

I lover her husband... Gorgeous man! Haha!!!

Jen ♥ said...

I kind of love her now. I didn't used to because she's such a sourpuss in front of the camera all the time. But I've read many interviews where she said she first started doing that face in photos because she didn't like her smile, then it just sort of turned into a persona. I like that she realizes she's doing it & owns it.

Lorena said...

Kim, like you - I was very quick to judge.
Now.. i take a bit more time :)
I must say that I find her a bit on the too skinny side, which is kind of scary, however maybe the just has an enviable metabolism or she is chasing around her kids all day!
I think she has true talent for designing.

I was one of the original VB haters during her Spice Girls years but she has quietly but steadily proved all her critics wrong. I admire her persistence, determination and guts. It's not easy to tune out naysayers and keep believing herself. She's a success and an inspiration to all women.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

She definitely looks much better now than she did in her Spice Girls days...to me at least. And I can't believe it's September Issue time already! This girl is excited. :)

Cee said...

I have to admit, in spite of being a tween girl when the Spice Girls debuted, I was never a fan. I grew up in a very feminist home and the particular brand of girl power these girls practised didn't really correlate with what I had learned about what women can do (which is anything - and with their midriffs covered!) But I have to say, of all the former Spice Girls, I have the most respect for VB. Her health concerns aside, she has very good business sense and has made an inspiring career for herself since her Spice Girl days. And she really does rock this shoot :)

Katherine said...

she always looks good, but she really irks me. i just dont think she is really very pretty nor does she seem all too nice. in terms of celebrities, she is one of my least favorites. i don't know if i dislike her, i just don't like or love her. i feel this way about a vast majority of celebrities, with the exception of a few.

Hey Kim, I'm probably the only one who like her more than her husband. Haha! Love the video too!

Victoria looks amazing in these photos and I especially love the one where she is wearing glasses. Like you, I think her designs are gorgeous - always so elegant. Thank you so much for your lovely, positive comment - so pleased that you enjoy my travel posts - that's so encouraging, Kim.

I actually know someone who ran into her and David Beckham at a party and they said David was like a glowing god and Victoria looked ridiculously skinny and caked in makeup. These photos, however, look stunning. Thanks for sharing!


Rowena @ rolala loves said...

This editorial is amazing! I have to admit I didn't care much for VB when she was a Spice Girl. She just came off rather cold and stiff compared to everyone else. However I think she's really opened up and come into her own since she's become a wife and mother and there's no denying she has impeccable style. Hubby saw her once years ago ago during the Spice Girl days and said she had the most awful skin and a bad attitude. She's obviously gotten it cleared up lol.

really nice blog! love all the pics!
would love to follow each other :))

steph said...

I love VB, though sometimes her super skinny appearance scares me as well. At the same time she's quite fascinating, I remember reading her biography around the time Spice Girls split. Love these pictures of her in the kitchen next to boxes of Cheezels and all the sugar-packed stuff she would never eat.. kind of ironic but looks great!

oomph. said...

I was never a spice girl fan...in fact didn't even know Victoria was part of it until years after they split. I think she found her calling in fashion (vs. singing)...
So true, we never see her smiling!


Tracy @ oceanside NY spa said...

I love the collection of the dresses that have been showcased in the above blogpost, they seem to be really fascinating.
