Victoria Beckham on Why She Wears Flats More Often These Days

Back in the aughts, we would have been shocked, simply shocked to see Victoria Beckham out and about wearing flats. Oh, how times have changed.

The Independent just profiled the award-winning designer whose style, though it has remained aspirational for many women, has changed since she was known simply as David Beckham’s stylish wife. “I just can’t get my head around the footwear,” the designer famously said in reference to flat shoes, but these days it seems she’s ditching her sky-high heels for more comfortable fare. 

“I’m busier now – so I couldn’t totter around in a tight dress and a pair of heels! I think I feel a little more relaxed,” she said, before noting that perhaps her previous uniform of high heels and skin-clinging frocks were a little like a suit of armor for her. “I suppose if I’m being honest, I would have been scared, right at the beginning, to wear lots of layers and to wear a flat shoe. I would have been scared to do that. Now I’m not.”

We’re sure her feet are happier for it.

The 11 Best Quotes from Kanye’s Style.com Interview

Earlier this afternoon, Kanye issued unto us a two-word missive via Twitter:

The rapper/designer sat down for a 4,800 word interview with Style.com, and read we did. It’s definitely not lacking his usual one-liner gems, but Kanye was also refreshingly frank about his influences, references and his talented team at Adidas. Whatever you thought of the collection, the entire interview is worth a read. We’ve picked out some of our favorite moments for the Cliffs Notes version below.

On the simplicity of his designs: “And then from my art background—from my heart background—I have a perspective on color that I’ve always wanted to get across… Even with the way we took Adidas socks and turned them into sports bras. It’s like, “What is almost like Alaïa that you can sweat in?” A sock! And it had to only be the sports bra because it looked really funny once [it] started going into the biking shorts. I tried that and that didn’t come out so well.”

On his relationship with the fashion industry once he started dating Kim Kardashian: “But soon as we started dating, fashion people were really opposed to the idea of reality stars. And all the relationships, the somewhat friends that I had somewhat built up, completely turned their backs on her and me.”

On his critics: “So anyone that’s out there that gave me a bad review on my first collection and felt that that helped me do better now, fuck you. You didn’t help me. You just talked.” (more…)

Swiss watch company Hublot is finally showing the ladies a little love. The brand has tapped Bar Rafaeli as its new ambassador – the first female to hold the title. Hublot chairman Jean-Claude Biver sees Ms. Rafaeli as the perfect woman to front the brand, based on her credentials and public persona. “We think that from the age point she is close to our customer, she is an entrepreneur, she is quite independent, she is elegant but still somehow low profile and she is a little bit sporty,” he told WWD. “So we said ‘if she has all this let’s start with her.'”

Hublot fêted the new addition to the family and the groundbreaking of its Fifth Avenue store this weekend. She will join names like Dwyane Wade, Usain Bolt, Jay Z and Kobe Bryant, who have all served as ambassadors for the label.
