Start Taking Bets: The Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes Fashion Week Showdown is Happening
The Huffington Post Celebrity wants to know, “Are Katie Holmes and Victoria Beckham ‘frenemies’ now?”
The once-upon-a-time BFFs (remember all those #TomKat-#Posh&Becks double dates?) will be going head to head during one of the most pivotal weeks of their lives, #NYFW. According to Fashionista.com, “Victoria Beckham & Katie Holmes are showing collections on the same day of NYFW…Do we smell a celeb designer showdown?”
While nothing sounds better than a face-off between the former Mrs. Cruise and Lady Becks, it’s clear who the safe bet is; Posh is already considered an established designer and Katie is showing her line, Holmes & Yang, for the first time during fashion week next month.

David Beckham Strips Down In Front of Everyone
“David Beckham makes one hell of a statue,” tweeted GQ. One can only thank David’s parents, his blessed genetics, and the smart people at H&M for placing giant statutes of Mr. Beckham all over New York as part of its latest ad campaign. Such is the allure and inspiration of Beckham immortalized in his underwear that “people are stripping into their skivvies at the giant David Beckham statues in NYC.” tweeted Fashionista.com. The fashion site then added, “Those giant David Beckham-in-undies statues placed around NYC by H&M put you right at balls’ level. BALLS’ LEVEL.” How charming.

Think the enthusiasm stops there? Think again: the whole fashion and entertainment world has been abuzz due to Beckham’s underwear idol. Pop Sugar exclaimed, “Started the day with a massive statue of
#davidbeckham – if only every day began like this! #hmbeckham @hmus.” Is there such a thing as too much Beckham full-frontal coverage, however? The Fashion Spot appears to think so tweeting, “David Beckham’s bulge seems to literally be unavoidable these days.”
Zara Doesn’t Indulge American Vanity
Stylist wants to know, “Are Zara sizes too small for Americans?” According to Elle.com, “The mass retailer does not participate in America’s ‘vanity sizing‘ which allows us to fit into sizes that are smaller than our actual size.” Which is why we want to know, are you feeling “too chubby for Zara?” (Huffington Post Style).
While it is true that several Americans have and still do prefer roomier sizing (particularly outside the bigger cities), does Zara’s sizing issue become a problem once important fashion personalities start complaining? Fashion’s darling pet Choupette Lagerfeld recently tweeted, “Zara, not even I could fit into some of your clothes.” Enough said.
Speaking of Choupette, the famous pussycat just turned one and yes, it was all caught on Twitter. Choupette’s proud papa Karl tweeted, “Choupette just turned 1!! Happy Birthday!!” Karl included a shot of the fashionably sensible cat with her birthday cake. And yes, it was carb-free.
