In her designs, the ready-to-wear artist formerly known as Posh Spice follows the mantra of the musical group that brought her to fame (You know the one: “Girl power!”). Victoria Beckham’s pieces are cut to flatter and comfort. They’re chic yet wearable, alluring yet understated (hello, comfy flats and velvet separates). That said, they are damn expensive, which is why, when Becks revealed she’d be the latest designer to collaborate with Target on a limited-edition collection, we fell to our knees thanking the fashion gods.
“The timing just felt right,” Beckham told Business of Fashion. “I’ve made no secret of the fact that I wanted to put a collection out there for people who either can’t afford designer prices or don’t want to pay designer prices.”
The collection will hit Target’s racks and website, as well as Victoria Beckham’s online boutique (so as not to exclude international fans), beginning April 9. It’ll be available in stores until April 30 or until supplies run out. The retail giant’s designer collaborations usually have a shelf life of about a day (tops), so plan accordingly.
Inspired by silhouettes from the designer’s Victoria, Victoria Beckham line, the range includes over 200 pieces priced between — wait for it — $6 and $70. The majority of the apparel and accessories will ring in below $40. “It’s quite girly, fun, happy,” Victoria told BoF. “I’ve always said [the VVB collection] is the other side to my personality, it’s the other half of my suitcase. The fun side of me.” Expect rompers, easy-to-wear dresses and flirty tops in a spring-apropos palette: soft pastels, bright pops of color and feminine prints. Beyond that, your guess as to what the “fun” side of Victoria looks like is as good as ours. (We imagine it sounds like this.) (more…)
Last week, Australian model Anthea Page took to social media to reveal she had contracted golden staph from a makeup brush while on set during Sydney Fashion Week. What started off as a vent to her 90,000 followers soon grabbed the attention of the international community as Page was forcing a conversation spoken usually in hushed whispers – if at all – makeup hygiene.
Page spoke to theFashionSpot about her recovery back to health, and how to ensure the problem never happens again.
Emma Stone: she is and isn’t just like us. In Vogue‘s latest 73 Questions video interview, the La La Land star reveals that Hocus Pocus and Beetlejuice are her favorite Halloween movies, she completely lost her cool the first time she met Tom Hanks, she once made a living peddling “Pup Tarts” at a dog bakery, she enjoys outfitting her canine companion in adorable lil raincoats and she cannot for the life of her play the recorder.
Reminding us that she is, in fact, an Oscar nominee and not one of us laypeople, “Emily” also shares an inside look at the mind of Ryan Gosling (he’s “bloodthirsty and vengeful”), names Jesse Adam Eisenberg as the funniest person in the world, performs a fiery magic trick and does a Britney Spears impression so convincing we’re reminded of why her typical day involves singing love duets with the aforementioned heartthrob and goofing off with Maya Rudolph, Brie Larson and Sarah Silverman.

Ever daydreamed about leaving your earthly troubles behind, becoming a flight attendant and traveling the world on an airline’s dime? Or did we watch Catch Me If You Can one too many times? Regardless, with the news that Delta employees’ uniforms are getting a revamp courtesy of one Zac Posen, maker of glow-in-the-dark Met Gala gowns and evaluator of Project Runway contestants, we’re seriously considering taking to the skies in style.
Yesterday, in Atlanta (where Delta Air Lines is based), the partnership unveiled the new collection via a catwalk show (natch). Comprised of about four dozen or so looks, the new range will be worn by about 60,000 Delta employees (ticket and gate agents, Sky Club and flight attendants, technicians — mainly those employees who fliers see). Employees will be allotted points with which to purchase their outfits. Dresses, skirts, blazers, coats, shirts and pants will be assigned different values and employees can mix and match as they so choose, because personal style.
“We wanted Delta employees to look glamorous on the job without sacrificing functionality and style,” said Posen of the uniforms. “I worked alongside employees to understand how they interact with the clothes they wear and developed a look that empowers and excites, because we want Delta’s global workforce to exude the confidence and thoughtfulness that reflects the airline’s brand.” (more…)
Our forums were disappointed when Allure jumped on the Kendall Jenner bandwagon last month for the October issue. The magazine redeems itself, however, with the release of the November 2016 cover featuring the beautiful Amanda Seyfried. Photographed by Scott Trindle, the American actress gives us arguably the strongest cover of the season wearing a velvet blazer and a head full of bouncy curls.
What’s not to love? Our forum members sure were more than content with the outcome. “What a beautiful cover for them. The rich colors and overall mood is very autumnal, which is appropriate. Never knew she had a mole, but Amanda looks great here,” raved a more than delighted Benn98, the second the cover came to light.
“It’s beautiful and classy,” added narcyza, feeling the same way. (more…)
