Victoria Beckham confirms to Vogue UK that she took out her implants


Sigh… another year without an American Vogue cover. Victoria Beckham has to console herself with yet another Vogue UK cover. Instead of going for her usual jacked-up high-glamour look (if you want to call it that), Victoria’s cover shot is suspiciously low-key. This, too, is forced. The Vogue UK writer Lisa Armstrong notes, “No French manicures. No torpedo bazookas, either. ‘Gone,’ she announces.” Why the change? Because Posh is going from WAG to fashion designer, and wants to be seen as low-key. Can I be honest? I rarely say this kind of thing, but Posh looks better when she’s “unnatural” you know? I don’t like this un-glamorous shot of Posh. It makes her look like she’s got mental problems, especially with her mouth hanging open like that. Anyway, in the interview excerpts, Posh talks about her marriage, etc:

Victoria Beckham has been unwavering in her love and devotion for husband David after 11 years of marriage. But despite his athletic figure and metrosexual appearance, the former Spice Girl admits even he has his off days.

Just months after Posh declared her husband looked ‘naturally good all the time’, she appears to have changed her mind. In a new interview with the UK edition of Vogue magazine, the 36-year-old spoke frankly about her husband of 11 years.

Speaking in the February issue of Vogue – her sixth Vogue cover – she said: ‘The other morning I looked across at David just after he’d woken up and thought you look really crap. Thank God, because this is a man who always looked so perfect.’

Her remarks were in stark contrast to an interview she gave to Marie Claire magazine in October.

She said at the time: ‘He just naturally looks good all the time. He never looks like s*** in the morning. Never. So he’s sitting there sending his e-mails, all ripped. Not an ounce of fat on him. And I thought, you done good, girl. I sure wasn’t thinking of his high-pitched voice.’

Victoria’s appearance in Vogue is the sixth time she’s appeared on the cover of the magazine. She’s already graced the covers of Russian, Indian, Turkish, German editions, and the British edition once before in 2008.

Also in the Vogue interview, she admits she’s finally given up on her long hope for a baby girl. She also confesses to having her breast implants removed and admits the power balance between herself and David is changing.

[From The Daily Mail]

Yeah, I buy that she loves the hell out of David Beckham, and I’ll also buy that he adores her. But not even his lawsuit against In Touch Weekly will convince me that David can keep it in his pants. He just has that problem, and it must be hell to deal with… that is, if Posh can even admit it to herself.

    She looks prettier & younger here; more relaxed. I’d like to see what her chest looks like after taking out the implants tho. (sorry if that’s gross-I’ve always wanted them but will never do it)

  2. Sol says:

    I like her more this way, more natural.
    She looks way better.

  3. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    I actually like the toned down version myself.

  4. malachais says:

    I like look better too, her body will be more proportionate without the implants.

  5. xxxyyy says:

    she looks beautiful here.

  6. mimi says:

    Yea I love the overdone glamazon Posh too! Now if only she’d gain some weight…

  7. Anna says:

    She’s much better this way. If not on the inside, at least on the outside. Back in the day, when I was a GIRL POWER!!!! adept, she was my favourite Spice Girl because she was so sophisticated-looking (at least to my 12 year-old mind *lol*) and didn’t mind her smaller breasts. The implants always looked whack on her, so now I’m really curious to know what she looks like with them finally taken out. I think this definitely is a step in the right direction for Posh.

  8. DGO says:

    I think she looks like Natalie Wood on the cover shot. I also think her admission that she’s not going to have a baby, and that the power balance is changing between them, are signs that the marriage may be ending. Hope not, but I wish her and her sons much happiness.

  9. Someone Else says:

    I know she’s never been a beacon of warmth, but lately she’s been looking really depressed.

    Might that have something to do with the toned-down look, too? (Which I like better, as well.)

    I don’t know… something seems off.

  10. KLO says:

    I wish her all the best. This photoshoot reminds me of her Spice Girl days, she really is naturally quite beautiful.

  11. Kiki says:

    I think she looks so beautiful here. I always felt that she was like always posing or something… Like it was forced.
    She looks approachable… Lovely and younger and I’m not even a fan!

  12. Ruby Red Lips2 says:

    I thought she looked much more beautiful with the ‘natural’ (photoshopped) look…

    tho, the comment that it makes her look like she has mental problems, made me giggle – alot! Now I can’t see her beauty just her mental issues! Thx Kaiser!

  13. Alias says:

    She looks a thousand times better than she did in her WAG days, she looked like a cheap skank then with the extensions and inch-long nails and hot pants and tank tops and torpedo tits….truly horrible. She still needs to eat more.

  14. lucy2 says:

    I think she looks better like this, and I’m glad she got rid of the bolt-ons, because they looked ridiculous.
    Hehe, she must have been po’d at him about something!
    I wonder if the less effort look is her accepting whatever the state of their marriage is, and figuring it’s not worth trying to keep up if his eye wanders no matter what.

  15. SoulLovah says:

    Aw that’s sad that’s she’s given up on having a baby girl….but was she even trying? Or was she unable to conceive?

  16. Stubbylove says:

    Thank God she took out those tennis balls. I’ve always liked her – she looks gorgeous here.

  17. Novaraen says:

    She’s had those implants out for months now….and she didn’t get rid of them totally…she downsized. The grapefruits she had before were ridiculous.

  18. lucy says:

    She looks really good in those pics. Photoshop helps. She should stick to that natural looks.

  19. Embee says:

    In that photo of her looking at herself in the mirror I see a woman who has finally come to love and accept herself. In my opinion there is nothing more beautiful, and so I vote for “this” version.

  20. Girafe99 says:

    @DGO, you take that back, VB is not fit to tie the laces of Natalie Wood

  21. albeli says:

    I think she looks much better natural–she looks really beautiful in this shoot.

  22. WhiteNoise says:

    She looks lovely here, younger and so much softer. A PR move maybe since she seems to be (unfairly imo) criticised a lot for looking harsh and uppity? Anyway, a good move for her.

  23. whitedaisy says:

    She looks wonderful and I hope for her that she feels that way on the inside, as well.
    And, surprisingly, I have loved every one of her dress designs that I have seen.

  24. Lisa Turtle says:

    Wow! She looks really great in these photos.

  25. heb says:

    Don’t give up on the baby girl Posh!! You can do it!! If Celine Dion and SJP can have twins, you can have that baby girl!

  26. Lisa Turtle says:

    Also – Professional Althletes cheat. Period. It’s part of the “All Boys Club” atmosphere created by the locker room mentality. These guys are training all the time, they spend the majority of time bonding with their “boys” – maybe some of them grow up eventually. By and large, however their capacity for emotional and physical loyalty to women is not finely tuned. Long-term monogamy takes practice, determination, and work. Professional athletes do not spend their time working to keep their marriages in tact, they spend their time working on their game.

  27. Lady D says:

    I agree with you whitedaisy. I have loved every dress of her’s that I have seen. Give anything to wear her creations.

  28. Bex says:

    I don’t know, I’ve thought that she looks much better recently, possibly put on a few very needed pounds and lost the skeletal look.

  29. moopsie says:

    I thought your boobs become deformed once having implants removed?

  30. Roxanne75 says:

    She is someone I have always wondered what’s like behind closed doors…how does she do it? It’s fascinating really. The power of a woman!

  31. Natalie says:

    “I don’t like this un-glamorous shot of Posh. It makes her look like she’s got mental problems” LMAO
    shes beautiful either way

  32. reformulated says:

    yeah , sure she had them removed ..
    but unless she is now flat as a pancake ,
    she has ‘replaced’ them which is par for the course with all implants as they need maintenance ..
    implants destroy the muscle underneath the breast so when women coyly suggest they have had the ‘funbags’ removed , what they really mean is they have downsized…
    if ‘posh’ wants to be part of high fashion than most likely she got the ‘crescent’ implants , typical with models & much more natural looking ..
    she looks GREAT au natural ..
    it is an enormous improvement from the clownish desperado skannk look …
    good for her !

  33. reformulated says:

    ps- & YEAH the creative director should tell her to close her mouth ..
    soooooooooo tired ..
    puh-LEEEEEZE …

  34. PallasJay says:

    Ugh. She looks like she’s on the cover of Vogue Knitting.

  35. Deven says:

    Isn’t it amazing that when a women “loses” all that made her so photographable, people can’t stand it when instead of “glamorous” she looks like a normal, attractive person.

  36. LolaBella says:

    She looks much better with the natural look.

    However, she has looked very depressed and less animated in photos lately (especially that black and white one above).

    Sadly, I think 2011 is the year that she and David will divorce; I think she’s had enough of the cheating and the lying.

  37. Carol says:

    I think she looks beautiful!

  38. lisa says:

    I thought she took the implants out quite a while ago. Why are they still talking about them.

  39. Cyui says:

    Yeah I thought it had been a few years she’s had them out. She needs to dump David. I think the cheating claims are true cause they’ve been going on for years. I remember watching a documentary on MTV of David back in 2005 or earlier….she was just standing there mocking him…it was weird. I think though it was her passive way of dealing with his affairs. She’s going to be delving hard in this new career. Get rid of David….get a hot young model for awhile…then go get some sexy dude to settledown with. She’s still packing heat… in she looks really good….time to move it on. I think she looks great and I think in the last couple of yrs she’s looked really good. Dressed up, but not over done.

  40. Anna says:

    That’s the best photo I’ve ever seen of her. They made her look normal and not gaunt .. Has she gained weight? Her face doesn’t look that skinny, or is this just photoshop?

  41. Ruffian9 says:

    Ok, I’m obviously a ‘hater’, but what these photos show me is how plain she really is.

    Victoria – close your mouth!

    All over the “VogueKnitting” comment – touche!

  42. MarenGermany says:

    she is THE most narcistic and insecure bitch out there.
    btw, this is the reason she always talks about how sexy and beautiful her husband is. coz that is the only thing girls are jeaulous about, that she got DAVID BECKHAM, and you didnt, bitches!

    never cared about him, but her entitlement and attitude just make me sick.

    Personal opinion.

  43. Patricia says:

    I think she looks great this way – huge improvement. I never liked her jacked-up look.
    FYI on the implant removal – I was an A/B cup and went up to a D with implants – over the muscle. Three yrs later I had them removed completely – not downsized – and they are a nice A/B again – no deformity. So it can be done. As for her, who knows, but that was my experience.

  44. Miss says:

    She looks gorgeous.

  45. putitstraight says:

    In the mirror pic – she looks like she’s asking herself “Who the eff am I and why is Eva Longoria’s face lookin back at me???”

  46. Annabelle says:

    GOD she looks BEAUTIFUL in that picture. Like her old self. I really like VB, always have. So, so pretty! Damn.

    I really don’t see how she looks like she has mental problems. She looks natural. If anything, people who get cosmetic surgery the way celebs do, DO have mental problems. And it is obvious by the way they have jacked their faces instead of accepting themselves and having confidence. I think you are used to seeing ppl with mental problems that it has become normal for you and you now think that normal looking people are the ones with mental problems. LOL.

  47. Louwho says:

    I can’t help but love her – she’s quite funny. She looks great.

  48. lisa says:

    Why has she given up the hope of a girl.

    She could always adopt. It’s not like they could not give a baby girl a wonderful life. Adoptions seem such a beautiful thing.

    Her statement seems a bit sad..

  49. Mistral says:

    Vogue UK is WAY cooler than American Vogue, which is horrible and currently a contender for “worst edition of Vogue”. Anna Wintour has destroyed a once great mag. As for Posh, I am so happy she got rid of those nasty, ugly-as-fuck, bolt-on tits. She looks gorgeous on the cover. This wholesome look is pretty adorable and seems kind of 70s/80s to me (in a good way)…She looks way younger and better without the caked-on make-up and fake cantaloupe implants that looked like they wanted to burst through the too-tight skin stretched over her emaciated frame…

  50. Aurelia says:

    Jezz, I don’t understand why these celebs lament they can’t have a certain sex baby. The U.S is one of the very few countries in the world that allows gender selection. Sperm washing is the term. Boy and girl sperm have different charges and an electric current can separate them. How do you think Jamie Oliver finally got a boy 4th time around. A simple trip to the U.S would have sorted it out. Yes Posh still has implants. Your tits are desimated when they are removed. The only solution is pruning the tissue right back and fashioning the natural remnats, or getting smaller implants.

  51. Aurelia says:

    Or maybe its because posh has poly cystic ovaries. She has spoken about that often in the past. I have 2 friends here in new zealand who also have the syndrome. They conceived their first babies ok but due to the oestrogen surge in pregnancy it caused the cysts already on their ovaries to burst, requiring surgery to prune them out and the extising ovary left. One friend’s burst during labour and the other friend’s during the pregnancy. Then one friend went onto have 1 other child amazingly and an etopic pregancy, and the other firend has not used contraception for 3 years and has not managed to fallen pregnant again. The pal with the eptopic pregnancy had even more ovary taken out at the time of surgery. Her only chance for more children is Invitro and even then it is sketchy. So, maybe this is what posh means about no more kids. She may have already been down the ivf route and even had eptopics as the likelyhood is increased with polycystic ovary syndrome. At least she has 3 children. But I know what she means to long for a girl. I only have 1 2 yr old boy and dream of a girl next.

  52. Zelda says:

    This looks nice.
    I like her look, and I like the whole look of the cover in general. Very retro-1983. I dig it.

  53. fanny says:

    I like the fresh look better. She was wise to remove those ridiculous implants. Too many girls make this mistake when they are young … not realizing that natural and smaller is better in the long run. Hope her husband isn’t cheating but I agree it IS hard to believe he isn’t.

  54. ohplease says:

    beautiful! just beautiful. no issue!

  55. Jane Doe says:

    To the people saying that removing implants leaves you deformed, that is absolutely NOT TRUE!!!! (unless you go to a surgeon who doesn’t know what the hell he/she is doing.) After having implants for 6 years, I had them removed–not downsized–completely removed, and I look exactly like I did pre-implants (aside from the scars of course.) I’m not a special case either.

  56. Alexa says:

    I LOVE her! ALWAYS WILL! She’s a beautiful person and I wish her all the best! (“Best BUDS!!”)

  57. Mouse says:

    Too little, too late. She does look more low key and “soccer mom” here, but always looks plastic and slighty trashy.

  58. trish says:

    Victoria looks great in the photo, i do not know her personally, but she seems to be looking for something. I have never found David to be attractive, and he looks old for his age. We are all just human, far from perfect. They have children together and if he has cheated on her, shame on him. There is never a reason or excuse for cheating.
