Victoria Beckham Takes a Guest-Editing Gig at Glamour

GlamourFor the all-important September Issue, Glamour Magazine is bringing a little something extra to the table. Yes, as you read in the headline, the glossy gave Victoria Beckham the chance to try on a pair of Guest Editor pants.

Not on the actual cover, though, where there are no pants in sight. Instead, the Spice Girl-turned-designer sports a dense coat of bubbles and a sparkly tiara. WWD reports that when Beckham last appeared on the cover of the magazine, in March 2010, single copy sales of the issue were 16 points up over the previous year.

Unlike typical guest editor gigs, which are largely in name only, Beckham actually did some work. The fashion icon worked alongside the Glamour editorial team for five months to produce the issue, taking the reins on a runway hair spread modeled by Lily Collins, a fashion editorial featuring the British band The Wanted, and other items.

Beckham totally thinks she did a good job — "I wanted to put my stamp on the magazine. They were really open to my ideas, like I wanted to show Lily with not a lot of retouching. I have a very strong vision of what I like and it's cool and a little more edgy." — and I bet she's right. The words "flop" and "Victoria Beckham" don't belong in the same sentence.
