Victoria Beckham “feels like an old bag” at NY Fashion Week: clever & funny?

Victoria Beckham

Here are a few photos of Victoria and David Beckham leaving a Soho restaurant after Victoria’s Sunday show at New York Fashion Week. David was spotted carrying Harper into the show earlier, and she’s really starting to look like Daddy. This would be the second time that David has attended one of Victoria’s shows, and she recently revealed that having a cuddle before a show really helps her focus and lose the nerves a bit.

Of course, this particular week is also big news because it will see the NYFW debut of Holmes & Yang, and Page Six previously reported that Victoria and Katie’s shows would happen at the same time in some strategic showdown of the former (forced) BFFs. However and upon a quick review of the schedule, it turns out that Holmes & Yang won’t be showing until Wednesday morning in the tents at Lincoln Center. As for Victoria, she still refuses to crack a real smile in public. When her runway received a standing ovation (you can see a lot of the clothes here), she couldn’t suppress her joy but made sure to cover her mouth. Oh Posh:

Victoria Beckham has been careful to set herself apart from the typical celebrity designer, and this morning it seemed that her efforts had paid off.

A front row that included Anna Wintour, Maria Sharapova, Anna Dello Russo, as well as proud husband, David, broke out into rapturous applause as she took her bow at the end. Clearly delighted by the reaction, Mrs Beckham is seen holding her hands to her face in surprise, before returning backstage.

The latest in a string of critically-acclaimed collections, Mrs Beckham continued the sharp schoolgirl theme that has been filtering into her collections lately. Sharp pointed collars and cropped jackets were new for the label, and a welcome addition to her repertoire of fitted dresses.

Pleated white tennis skirts and racer-back tanks had a sporty feel, heightened by the styling which teamed them with flat brogues and boots. A delicate lattice pattern was a key detail; it appeared on dresses and tops on cutaway sections, as well as handbags and clutches.

Commenting on the line, Lauren Stevenson, PR Director at said: “It was good I see her move to separates – there was almost a Carven feel to some of the pieces such as the box skirts and cropped jackets. But there was a relaxed feel to the collection. I liked it, it’s good to see her confidence growing with each collection.”

I really do think Victoria’s line is getting better by the season, and while I still wouldn’t wear any of these clothes (and maintain that Posh designs only for her particular body type), she is showing some growth as a designer. And it’s obvious that she puts the work in at fashion shows rather than let someone else do it all while she takes all of the credit. Is her line completely original? Obviously not, but at least she’s moved away from putting zippers down the backs of every outfit.

Also, I do appreciate the Posh sense of humor, and I love that she actually put a bag over head while stating, “I feel like an old bag” after getting three hours of sleep ahead of her NYFW show. She’s kind of hilarious like that.

I love that David cames out to support Victoria during her fashion shows. She’s been attending his soccer/footie games for years, so it’s great to see two spouses that truly care about each other’s successes.

    I like her new collection. It’s simple, sophisticated, and great executed. However I don’t see average women in her clothes. Too bad. It looks like she is making all these clothes for herself. BTW I like her wicked sense of humor.

  2. Belly says:

    I like her clothes too, the simple and flattering cut. IMO anyway.
    Shits all over Stella McCartney’s stuff, that looks awful on everyone.
    And that is an excellent question, re decaf!

    • Ashlee says:

      Shits on Stella? You gotta be high. Stella’s an actual designer who studied fashion. VB clothes look like cheap ass Stella copy’s.

      • sunny says:

        word, ashlee. it’s disturbing how many people here don’t understand stella & judge her designs by what a few celebrities turn up on red carpets. sigh.

    • Shoe_lover says:

      I like VB but Stella is a good designer. Dont judge based on a few designs you see on this site. i own a few Stella pieces and they are so lovely. One is the most amazing suit jacket. its cut so well, and fits amazing and has great detailing.

      i dont normally go for modern clothes, i am a vintage gal, but this jacket, when teamed with a pencil skirt looks like i’m in the 1940’s.

    It was nice to see her sort of smile on the runway — actually made her seem human!

    • Mimi says:

      I know! Those pics were totally cute and she’s actually quite funny in her interviews. Ah, the little carrot stick is growing on me.

  4. DM says:

    I adore vb and I love this collection as its more casual. I disagree though, i dont think it’s only for her body type. I’m a uk 12 and u would wear all of this happily!

  5. RocketMerry says:

    Yeah, she seems like a really funny and sweet girl. Best of luck with the new collection!

  6. jano1981 says:

    From looking on my phone I can tell I love the collection. I love how she dresses. I love her. I love her cute family. She does seem pretty funny too. 🙂

  7. Shitler says:

    She’s growing on me. I use to dislike her so much.

    • Ellie66 says:

      Me too! Couldn’t stand her but I’m kinda liking her more and more! They seem to be a very loving family!

  8. satty says:

    maybe she doesn’t like her smile?

    • Abby says:

      I remember reading somewhere that she doesn’t like her smile–that’s why she keeps a straight face. It’s also like “armor” in the fashion world to her.

  9. snappyfish says:

    i like her, but i have no idea why.

  10. Mirella says:

    Does anyone remember when she did that show “Coming to America”, when David signed with the Galaxy? It was then, that I started to love her. She’s hilarious & sweet & I wish her & David all the best.

  11. Nanea says:

    If I could find anyone to foot the bill, I would happily wear some of VB’s newest designs.

    I think she’s funny and creative, but very insecure.

  12. KellyinSeattle says:

    I love her clothes..I like her family, too. I bet David can dress himself, but I doubt she’d let him out of the house w/t looking good. She’s hilarious. Love the bag over her head; only wish more celebs would put bags over their heads, but not in a kidding way!

  13. Grace says:

    I like Victoria but wish that the old bat Anna Wintour would take her metamucil, bland fashions, and retire so Victoria can take Vogue over and recharge global fashion.

  14. the original bellaluna says:

    Seems like she has a good sense of humour (despite all the pix of her with a dour face), especially after only three hours of sleep.

    Good on her! She used to really put me off, but now? Not so much. For whatever reason, she’s endeared herself to me.

  15. mln89 says:

    i love the dress she’s wearing, but she seriously looks too damn skinny in it.

    and what the hell is katie holmes of all people doing with a fashion line? she can’t even dress herself! how is someone with no sense of style going to dress other people?
