Victoria Beckham uses her daughter Harper as Vogue- bait: clever or obvious?

Anna Wintour can’t be the devil because she smiles at chubby babies!! That’s what I’m getting from this photo taken by Victoria Beckham and posted to her Twitter. She wrote: “All eyes on Baby Harper at #SS14 Victoria Beckham #NYFW x vb”. Posh showed her Spring/Summer collection yesterday during NYFW. And David Beckham, Harper Beckham and Anna Wintour were front and center for the show.

Now, is this Victoria being clever? I think we could all agree that Posh would do just about anything to make the cover of American Vogue. And Wintour has expressed a fondness for David before, so of course Posh encouraged David and Anna to sit next to each other. And oh, here’s beautiful baby Harper, of course. Part of me thinks that Anna was smiling at Harper because she was thinking, “Harper, you’ll get the cover of Vogue before your mother ever will. You just need to lose 10 pounds!!” Because even the devil smiles at babies.

By the way, did you see Posh’s S/S collection? It is NOT cute, in my opinion. You can see the photos here – there are a few cute dresses, I guess, but most of it is only for women built like Posh. I mean, a lot of designers only design for a specific woman’s body-type, but it’s especially pronounced in this collection. I absolutely loathe the high-necked, button-collar trend. It looks asinine. You know what I love though? The white blouse Posh wore for her show. Is that one of her designs?

    I pretty much can’t deal with how cute Harper is and how much I adore her little faces.

  2. Harpreet says:

    I really cannot believe that Miley was supposed to get a Vogue cover.

    There are so many better candidates.

    After the Katy Perry cover, I am beginning to think Anna’s lost her touch.

    • RocketMerry says:

      Yes. Anna is clearly losing her mind.

      Give Vicky her damn cover, already!

    • Liv says:

      I don’t get it either. And I don’t believe Miley for a second that she does not care about all the reactions. Sure, she really wanted the attention. But she’s not immune to the bad critics and offending comments.

    • IrishEyes says:

      I canceled my 8 YEAR subscription to Vogue, and I’m IN fashion. It’s a joke. I will buy the JLaw cover, but only the others I like. I was tired of getting covers with people I could care less about. *Bitchy Comment For the Day*

      • Denise says:

        I cancelled my UK Vogue subscription because it was always celebrities on the cover with a stoned looking Kate Moss interspersed every few months, and I swear Alexa Chung was in every single issue. It was just so boring and predictable that not only did I not look forward to it, it actually pissed me off to see it!

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      I don’t follow Vogue, I’m not into having to look at things that are supposed to be fashion when it really looks stupid (to me, no offense to those who are in fashion or follow it). I do jeans and a shirt, even some yoga pants all day every day. But Katy on Vogue and then Miley… Why? Vogue, I thought, was the cover anyone who is anyone wants and gets. Katy and Miley aren’t people I feel ever deserve to be on it. If I ever bought one I’d buy a Beckham issue over Katy or Miley. I’d buy mold over buy a Miley magazine.

      Just sayin.

      • Josephine says:

        But at least she’s kept that Kardashian loser off the cover… But I agree – seeing Miley on that cover would be awful.

      • Dommy Dearest says:

        I’ll second that. If she does I’ll laugh at the name of fashion.

    • carol says:

      to be fair, anna wintour has clearly gone off the deep end and is complety out of touch with reality

  3. Abby says:

    Harper is just too adorable. Her pics with Beckham melt my heart.

    Kaiser your posts are always hilarious especially the part where Wintour will put Harper on Vogue cover before Victoria LOL

  4. Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    Any other mum and I’d probably side-eye her taking her toddler to a fashion show but it feels like Victoria waited FOREVER to have a little girl so I can imagine that she’s just loving this, gonna have to give her a pass on this one 🙂

  5. Amory says:

    The outfit Victoria wore for her own show is remarkably unflattering. When the clothes makes a stick like her look dumpy, how are they going to look on the average gal?!

    Her hair and make-up are also pretty lousy here. It’s so unlike her not to look pin perfect.

    • Malificent says:

      I think she deliberately dressed down to look like a “working designer” instead of a dabbling housewife. Her line already does well — but it never hurts to keep an eye on the perception.

    • Diane says:

      I agree, I’m a little surprised how disheveled she looks. Plus I think the long hair has taken away her unique look (like Halley Berry when her hair was long).

  6. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Sorry but I have to disagree–those belted dresses in her collection are amazeballs. I want all of them.

    • blue marie says:

      yeah, I’m a fan of her belted dresses too, some of the other things look a bit frumpy though.

      and I fully believe Anna will put Harper on the cover quicker than Victoria.

    • NerdMomma says:

      I agree, those were amazing. Not sure about the frumpy black creations- what would anyone want with those? But overall, I have to say everything would look better if the models didn’t look like miserable starving people. It’s been a while since I’ve looked through a fashion show and they all just look sad. What happened to smiling and/or being fierce??

    • LadyMTL says:

      I love the dresses too! I like the fact that the collection isn’t all frou frou and frilly, for one thing, even if the dresses are a bit short for my taste.

      To each their own, I suppose! Though I’m sure we can all agree that H7 is the cutest baby ever lol.

    • ds says:

      Agree; I like that she actually did some sacky design. I know many hate that but minimalist in me has a soft spot for those. It’s playful and simple and I like it.

    • ncmagnolia says:

      I really love her collection! I’m a big fan of clean, non-fussy lines. I love the belted dresses, but I also love the longer lines for work. I’m with a pretty stodgy firm, and I would out-fashion the lot of them with those skirts and adorable collared shirts.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I thought the bottom of several dresses (where there were pleats on one side showing a little under the straight part) were very pretty. I haven’t seen that before, and described it so badly probably no one knows what I’m talking about, but I thought it was a pretty detail.

    • IrishEyes says:

      I generally tend to like her clothes. And this line appeals to me.

  7. Samtha says:

    Anna Wintour actually smiled?!

  8. Arlene says:

    LOVE the underpleat kick, so cute and flirty.

  9. Florc says:

    This looks more like just a cute pic than bait.
    She is a little cutie!

  10. Bopit says:

    I think I kinda like her collection this season — good lines and rather classic.

  11. Nicolette says:

    Harper is just one of the cutest little girls ever. And Daddy is pretty nice looking himself.

  12. Reece says:

    I clicked the link in the feed at the bottom that has more pics of her. I could NOT handle The Cute!

    I like those pleated ruffled dresses/skirts. I wear the hell outta those, if I could afford VB.

  13. Nev says:

    hahahahaha love it.

  14. Jayna says:

    Aw, so cute. When people say it’s awful to want a girl after having a lot of boys, I call bull. I’m sure she got pregnant again because she wanted a girl. If Victoria and David had found out they were pregnant with a fourth boy they would have been initially disappointed but then loved the little fella obviously, but the fact that they got the little girl after all this time and pregnant again was special, the same as if you had three girls and really wanted a boy. It’s just a fun time for the family and a different experience. My sister got pregnant again because she really wanted a girl after her two adorable boys. Her husband wanted to stop at two. She really thought she would have another boy because she wanted a daughter so much and had accepted that and would have been happy after an initial disappointment from the sonogram because she wanted three anyway, but was blessed to have a daughter, who is such a joy to the whole family. She’s adorable as is Victoria’s little girl.

  15. OhDear says:

    I love everything about that black and white picture. Also, the suit fits Beckham well.

    Also, I like the collection! Very wearable.

  16. Dawn says:

    I think Harper is among the cutest of all celeb babies along with Finn Bloom. That being said, I believe that Victoria has earned a cover. She has been successful as a singer and now a designer. I love that look she has going in those pics above. In fact it is hard to believe she has had four kids. I also think Kanye West is still begging for a cover for himself, Kimmode and North West and that will be the true test. If the West-Kklan ends up on the cover I will be done forever with Vogue, with Victoria on the cover I might buy one.

    • bluhare says:


      I can’t believe AW would consider KK over VB for a cover. It’s not even close in my book. Wouldn’t surprise me if Harper was part of the deal, though!

  17. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    I wish Steven Harper would get out of Canada and be forgotten about so I could like the name Harper – she is a much better face for that name.

  18. Ashley says:

    Uhmm she is a fashion designer now?? When did this happened? I read somewhere that she is pushing for her husband to get into acting in Hollywood. I gues she wants those $40 Billion per movie paycheqes.

    • Jamie says:

      I dont want to sound like a snot, but this isnt her first collection. Not even close, she has been doing this for years.

    • Eden75 says:

      Her sunglasses collection came out in 2007, the first clothing line in 2008 at New York Fashion Week.

  19. Katie says:

    Harper’s cute, but she shouldn’t have been anywhere near a fashion show. I get that Victoria’s excited about finally having a daughter that she can pass her food issues on to, but this child is treated as more of an accessory than her brothers ever were.

    Victoria, you’re at an age where your limited food consumption (and that heavy black eyeliner) makes you look twice your age. A piece of cake every once in a while won’t make you obese.

    Also, I hope Anna Wintour continues to deny Victoria the cover. At this point, it’s hilarious. And, really, Victoria, you could do so much better at this point. Like, Katy Perry and Kate Upton have been on the cover of Vogue. Does being on the cover really still mean as much as it used to? (I’m seriously asking anyone who actually works in the fashion industry.)

    • Sarah says:

      The 1st picture of Victoria really makes her look like she has an eating disorder. Not just skinny but sick.

  20. Gia says:

    Yeah…my first thought was Harper will make the cover before Victoria ever does. I’m still not buying her as a high end designer either. God, could she try any harder???? It’s so unnatural for her to be all waspy/goopy. She’s a chav!

  21. Alexa says:

    Haven’t checked out vb’s new line yet. But just had to say that – imho – IT’S THE COMBO of the cherubic Harper and her gorgeous Greek god of a dad, David Beckham, that overwhelms even the most vile and coldest of hearts.

  22. Her indoors says:

    I’m liking her more and more as she gets older. The clothes are fab and that child is edible.

  23. LAK says:

    That is the most blah collection of clothing I have ever seen.

    Did she spend her summer at the gap? Because she’s sent down a catwalk a collection that is basic gap. Actually, the gap is more exciting.

  24. princesslizabeth says:

    Posh looks really unwell. The years are not going to be a friend to her, IMHO.

    Can’t believe Anna Wintour smiled! I have never seen that.

  25. D. says:

    She actually posted the picture of Harper some hours after they were already becoming sort of viral on instagram. So i don’t think she used her daughter as bait. Harper is such a cute little girl!
    And I really like her collection, especially the clean lines, the oversized style and the limited color spectrum.

  26. nicegirl says:

    I vote clever AND obvious! go posh baby

  27. pnichols says:

    wow Anna is smiling. Give that kid a medal.

  28. Carol says:

    I like her and I like her line, but some of those dresses are so short they looked like shirts. I wondered where the pants were. And did I miss the memo that models were no longer allowed to be pretty? Their hair and makeup did them no favors. Who can afford VB designs anyway? H7 is adorable!

  29. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Harper is so cute! I want to pinch and kiss those cheeks…that’s my favorite thing to do with a baby. I’m crap at doing the whole baby talk, so I just kiss them instead—no matter how much drool is coming out!

  30. Justme says:

    David is so in love witht that baby and she’s a cutie. Maybe it’s just me, but does anyone else think that Victoria will be a wee bit jealous of little Harper’s attention in the future, the rest of the world?? When she’s a baby, she’s all proud, but when she’s a young lady, I can see VB being that type of Mom. Also, I see VB being jealous that she gets SO MUCH of Daddy’s attention. Think VB looks like a good Mom, but I sense future jealousy as VB is so insecure and not confident and her ultra-thinness will not age well.

    • RHONYC says:

      *buzzes buzzer*


      wrong. i see her looking at H7 with the same (perhaps more) loving pride as i’ve seen with all her darlings at that age.

      you’ll see…she’s madly in love with that kid.

      i’m living for the ‘ETERNAL’ fashion show that she’s gonna give us with H7’s waredrobe! Suri who?

      hells bells, i wouldn’t put it past her & DILFy Sweet Heiney to have another kid in the next 3 years for good measure. 😉

  31. RHONYC says:

    hows ’bout the Vicky Trick we’re NOT mentioning?

    a decade ago some scandalous whore was trying to steal her man which prompted her to drop her music career (knock it off y’all who are sayin’ ‘Thank God’ lol), drop 3 more babes and pursue her true fashion for passion creating a dope ass fashion brand all WHILST gettin’ fine heiney’d papa David to BABYSIT in the FRONT ROW!!!

    well played Vicki Becks, well played. 😉

  32. sarah says:

    victoria had work done…those cheekbones are new

  33. Flower says:

    Give Harper the cover.

  34. Trashaddict says:

    Just two things:
    Anna Wintour, change your damn hairdo.
    All designers, stop making capris. They’re not suitable for work and they’re only attractive on about 1 in 1,000 women. Enough already.

  35. MegG says:

    Well played Victoria. Most people would melt at this picture.
