Victoria And David Beckham For 10 Magazine Spring 2010

To celebrate the magazine’s 10th anniversary, 10 Magazine have feature David and Victoria Beckham in a double cover issue.

Throughout the shoot, by photographer Cedric Buchet, David is dressed as an oiled up mechanic whilst Victoria poses in a number of high fashion ensembles, including  the Victoria Beckham peplum dress, which both she and Blake Lively have been seen in before.

Victoria is also seen wearing Roland Mouret and Antonio Berardi in the editorial as she sports a new softer, wavy hairstyle which she showed-off a few months ago.

Throughout the editorial Mr and Mrs Beckham talk about their fashion ventures – Victoria’s self titled collections and David’s line for Adidas.

Here are some extracts from the interview but you can see more at 10magazine.com.

Victoria on her celebrity clientèle: “My dresses are for women of all different shapes and sizes. Actually, the one I tried on yesterday was the one Jennifer wore. And who’d have thought I’d be the same size as Jennifer Lopez!”

Who Wore Victoria Beckham Collection Better? Victoria Beckham, Katherine Jenkins Or Drew Barrymore

Victoria Beckham first wore this violet Giral strapless dress from her Fall 2009 collection during filming for “American Idol” back in August of last year.

I like the way that this dress creates some curves on the otherwise emaciated star.

However I would have like her to have worn a less severe hairstyle.

She obviously loves this design as she also wore it in black over the same weekend.

Katherine Jenkins was next to wear this dress to the “GQ Men Of The Year Awards” in London.

I like the black metallic shoes she’s teamed it with as they compliment the colour of the dress really well.

I also think that her hair is the best here, swept back off her face but still delicate.

Drew Barrymore then wore this dress in November to a screening of “Everybody’s Fine” in LA.

I’m not really getting the accessories – why the dress pin?

The satin Casadei heels work for me though.

I can’t decide if I like the red lips either. Maybe she should have let the purple do the talking.

To be honest, nobody has me drooling but I think Katherine wins as it seems to suit her the most.

What do you think?

Runway To LAX & Heathrow Airport – Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham Collection And Loewe

Of any celebrity in the world Victoria Beckham must have the most frequent airmiles.

We constantly see her at LAX or Heathrow strutting her stuff with her Hermes black Birkin by her side.

She left LAX last week wearing a LBD from her Fall 2009 collection which was accented with a jeweled detail.

Her look was paired with her favourite Alaia cardigan and her new Alaia heels which she debuted in Paris last year.

It’s head-to-toe black, but so very chic.

I’m also loving the slightly longer locks

Yesterday Victoria left London after no doubt being in town to check on her Fall 2010 collection.

We’re used to seeing Victoria wear coats without tights in the winter and this was no exception.

The designer opted for a Loewe trench coat with shiny bright orange buttons, which provided the only pop of colour in her look.

Her favourite suede Christian Louboutin ankle books complete her look.

18.01.10 Best Dressed

2010 Golden Globes Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award

I was a bit underwhelmed by this red carpet until I saw Diane Kruger.

Ever since I attended the Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 Couture show in January last year I’ve been praying to see this gown on the red carpet.

Diane more than does this stunning pink ombre gown justice. The colour really pops on the soggy red carpet on a cold and rainy night in LA.

I love the sleek old Hollywood hairstyle. She was really out to impress.

Her white Raven Kauffman Couture clutch matched the pretty white bow on the side of her dress.

Most Predictable Award

There would’ve been no prizes for guessing that Marion Cotillard would wear Christian Dior.

Style.com even predicted that exact dress she would wear.

Being the face of ‘Lady Dior’ helps, plus when we see her in Dior we always get spectacular results.

Her petrol green satin asymmetrical Spring 2010 dress has a thigh-high split with a black négligée peeping through.

Jimmy Choo ‘Drake’ sandals and Chopard jewels complete her look.

Biggest Shock Award

Courteney Cox walked the red carpet last night wearing a black strapless dress from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2010 collection.

Like most pieces from VB’s collection the dress was well structured and had a ‘top to hem’ zipper along the back.

I liked the jeweled detail on the empire waist, and the chic updo Courteney sported.

Normally I don’t care much for Courteney on the red carpet, but she really surprised me by how great she looked.

She carried a black Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch.

Her husband actor David Arquette dutifully kept her dry from the pouring rain.

Best Couture Award

This is definitely one of those ‘better on screen look’s.  Unfortunately the picture isn’t doing Drew Barrymore any favours.

Her Atelier Versace Fall 2009 one shoulder champagne gown was stunning.

The nude corset was covered by a nude crystallized overlay, with two clusters of glass fringes on the shoulder and the hip.

Her hair was swept back as not to interfere with the details, as the actress wore Lorraine Schwartz jewels to complete her look.

It’s A Grower Award

I’ve been going back and forth with Julianne Moore.

I was just about to put her on the Worst Dressed list, when I decided that her Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2008 dress wasn’t as bad as I first thought.  Mostly because she looks so elegant.

The grey colour initially put me off this silk bustier gown, but I really like the pleated lace detailed neckline and her green Bvlgari earrings were magnificent.

Black suede Balenciaga stingray sandals complete the look.

Beautiful, Even When Slightly Wet Award

Chloe Sevigny would’ve been the most worried about getting her rose Valentino sleeveless gown wet as it would’ve deflated those beautiful ruffles.

But she was lucky to have a someone to help shield her dress from the rain.

Buccellati jewels complete the look.

Va Va Voom ‘Jessica Rabbit’ Award

Christina Hendricks has the most amazing body, which she always dresses so well.

She leaves me breathless in this stunning Christian Siriano Spring 2010 gown which was custom-made to hug those delicious curves.

She carried a Christian Loubuotin ‘Kephron’ silver clutch and wore Loree Rodkin jewels. Read More…

Gary Barlow’s Wedding Anniversary Party

Take That singer Gary Barlow and his wife Dawn Barlow held a star studded bash at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in London’s Knightsbridge this week, to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary.

Two member of Girls Aloud turned up to help him celebrate.

Cheryl Cole arrived wearing a body con Julian Macdonald scuba dress from the designers Spring 2010 collection.

I really love this dress on Cheryl, who stepped out with her footballer husband Ashley Cole.

I think that the sheer panels add some real sexiness to the dress, plus the peach is a nice contrast against the grey.

Cheryl has styled the dress with a By Malene Birger Mondi embellished felt necklace.

I’m not that hot on those gold Pierre Hardy shoes as I think they don’t do the silver tones of the necklace any favours at all.

Boyzone singer Ronan Keating was also there with his wife, model Yvonne Keating who towered over her husband in 6in Louboutin’s.

Yvonne was wearing a Victoria Beckham Peblum dress from the designer’s Spring 2010 collection, which we’ve previously seen on Blake Lively and Victoria Beckham herself.

I like this dress on Yvonne but I’m not crazy about the sheer tights. It’s still snowing in London so it kinda figures.

Singer and ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ winner Alesha Dixon was also there, braving the cold in a tiered white dress.

We’re used to seeing Alesha in frou frou style dresses and I must say, I don’t excatly hate this one.

I like the pop of colour her pink lipstick brings to the dress but wished she’d teamed it with a brighter clutch as well.

Fellow Girl’s Aloud member Kimberley Walsh arrived with her boyfriend Justin Scott.

Kimberley was wearing a sparkly body con mini dress with black tights.

Who Wore Victoria Beckham Collection Better? Blake Lively or Victoria Beckham

From your comments last week, I could tell that this was going to be a tough decision for all of us.

Blake Lively wore this Victoria Beckham peplum dress to the 2009 Angel Ball with Calypso heels back in October.

She looked stunning as she gave us her best ‘head slightly hilted to one side’ pose we’ve all come to recognise as her trademark.

Victoria was spotted leaving her hotel in Paris last week wearing the same dress.

She was without her trademark sunglasses, but of course she doesn’t step out without one of her many pairs of Trib Two heels.

Both women are rockin’ the hell out of this dress, and I’ve agonised over this for about 20 minutes now.

As much as I want to vote for Blake, Victoria totally owns this look – as she should.

This dress is available to purchase from Net-A-Porter.com.
