Is Victoria Beckham still depressed about Kim Kardashian’s Vogue cover?


Here are some photos of Victoria Beckham, plus Brooklyn, Cruz and Harper, all at LAX over the weekend. Brooklyn is carrying his little sister protectively, which is adorable. Such a great big brother! No one is going to mess with Harper, ever. Her brothers will see to that.

As for Victoria… does she look depressed? Hell froze over and Kim Kardashian got a Vogue cover before Victoria. To be fair, Victoria has gotten lots of Vogue covers, they’ve just been the international editions. Never an American Vogue. Although Anna Wintour has thrown her a bone a few times and included her in some editorials, plus Victoria did get a really nice write-up last year. But still no cover. And to be quite honest… I don’t see how Victoria will get a cover in the near future either. If Wintour didn’t give it to her after Harper was born, I don’t see how Posh “deserves” one now. Of course, I could be wrong. Maybe Wintour will succumb in the end. Maybe Kim Kardashian was the ass that broke Vogue.

Posh recently discussed her fashion lines with French Grazia, and she really thinks that her designs are great for all body types. Er… no. They are not. Posh designs pretty clothes, but they’re just meant to be worn by women with model-type bodies. Posh said:

”A lot of women think they have to be slim to wear my clothes, which isn’t at all the case. I’ve dressed Oprah Winfrey, for instance. It’s not because I have a certain body shape that I expect my clients to be the same.”

The Spice Girl singer, formerly known as Posh Spice, added that Oprah’s womanly figure looked ”magnificent” in one of her more body-con dresses.

Victoria explained: ”I’m conscious of making women look their best.”

Well… I’m guessing that Posh’s clothes had to be tailored specifically for Oprah’s body (or Posh just made Oprah something special to her specifications) because I’ve yet to see Oprah wandering around in one of Posh’s sack dresses.

Last thing – the Spice Girls are reuniting and going on tour. Except Victoria isn’t doing it, so now the Spice Girls are down to four.

    Aren’t we ALL still a bit depressed that Vogue put those trashy people on the cover?

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I certainly am.

      • Meredith says:

        Me too. I think Victoria Beckham is entitled to take to her bed for a week or so and mourn this terrible thing. VB has talent and hustle and should have been on the cover long before Kim K who only has hustle (in the worst possible way) and no talent.

    • vava says:

      The way I look at it is Kim finally covered her boobs and butt enough to look halfway presentable. That cover photo was one of her best fashion looks EVER.

      • Meredith says:

        I agree but I don’t think with KK that the bar for “best fashion look ever” is set very high. Harper Beckham could have been KK’s stylist and achieved an all time best look.

    • Loulou says:

      Not when you think it was Anna Wintour’s April Fools’ ; )

  2. Hiddles forever says:

    I don’t think she cares, honestly….

    • idk says:

      I don’t think she cares either. She’s winning in life, period. Plus, who says American Vogue is so much better than any other Vogue?

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Plus, she never smiles, so it’s hard to tell what she’s feeling, exactly. I like her, but she always has on a serious face.

  3. GeeMoney says:

    If I were her, I wouldn’t be depressed. Vogue has jumped the shark.

    • Tracy says:


      • Melissa says:

        Also, Kim didn’t get the cover by herself, she had to be with Kanye. I bet Victoria could have got the cover if she agreed to be with David. I suspect she turned that down because she wants to “earn” it herself.

    • Tanguerita says:

      exactly. Who would want to be on the cover of American Vogue now, after it being soiled by KK? Wintour lost any credibility.

      • Josephine says:

        I was wondering about that. Can you imagine being the next cover? It seems embarrassing to follow reality star trash.

    • Meredith says:

      Jumping the shark. Oh Happy Days and Fonzy.

  4. AlexandraJane says:

    What a great big brother! They just seem like such nice kids.

    • Lauren says:

      Classy Victoria has nothing to be envious of. The K-Trash Vogue cover is obsurd. More importantly, I love how one of Harper’s brothers is carrying + protecting her. So sweet.

  5. Zen1016 says:

    I highly doubt that Posh is depressed.

  6. jasmine says:

    How cute are those kids, especially the older one holding Harper! Beautiful family! Don’t worry Vicky, you didn’t miss much, I bet she doesn’t even want the cover now that trashy KIm was on it!

  7. Lee says:

    American Vogue’s cachet is gone now. She needn’t feel bad anymore about not making that cover.

    All her kid’s noses match hers! So cute.

    • DailyNightly says:

      I agree. If I were Victoria, I would be happy to NOT be associated with that magazine. I sure as hell would not want to be on any cover AFTER Kim was on it.

  8. FingerBinger says:

    “Is Victoria Beckham still depressed about Kim Kardashian’s Vogue Cover?” should be re-titled: First World Problems.

  9. lisa2 says:

    LOL she may be a bit miffed, but if she is depressed (WHICH I DOUBT) shame on her. There are way more important things to get upset about than Kim being on the cover of Vogue. Next month there will be someone else.

    Besides it is Vogues lose not hers.

  10. Tiffany says:

    Can we talk about how Brooklyn has grown. It seems like yesterday his parents were married and the photos of them on a thrown were released to the press. Time is just flying.

  11. blue marie says:

    David and her make such cute kids.

  12. eliza says:

    I doubt she really cares at all.

  13. QQ says:

    Nah, she is a Bonafide designer, swimming in Money, David Beckham and gets to eat all the Delicious Free Air There is!! LOL

    • Dommy Dearest says:


      If I was her that Kimye Vogue crap would have made up my mind to NOT want to pose for it. Posh has everything and now that the magazine has lost all credibility it’d be like Posh posing for People magazine. I’m not going to say Posh > Kim but Posh over Kim all day, from her clothes, husband, and children. All day.

  14. We Are All Made of Stars says:

    Firstly, she HAS been on the cover- when the Spice Girls were on it in their heyday. Anna Wintour has publicly gone on record claiming that this is her one cover regret. As much as I love the storyline of a diabolical Wintour cackling in her Vogue office with a Scotch on the rocks while banishing Posh Spice to US Vogue anonymity as a salve for her own feelings of embarrassment, the truth is more than likely that putting Posh on the cover would piss off legit fashion designers whose work she is constantly accused of, um, borrowing. In other countries, she can go on the cover as a celebrity or a Beckham. Nobody in the US really cares, so she would have to be promoted primarily as a designer.

    I’m drunk typing so I hope this makes sense. 🙂

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      I don’t know I think Vogue has now become the new People magazine with the Kimye cover. I mean a porn star on Vogue. Her fashion line has failed. I just…. Seriously dislike Kim. Obviously hahahaha SPICE GIRLS 4LYFE

  15. Jegede says:

    Serious question – What’s with the narrative that Victoria Beckham is owed a Vogue Cover?

    Even designers more talented less reductive and who captured the zeitgeist of the time like Lee McQueen, Phoebe Philo never got any covers (and this was at the height of Cool Britannia!).

    So why is Beckham owed one?

    • LAK says:

      it’s not that she deserves one. It’s that she’s publicly campaigned for one going as far as re-sculpting herself into what she believes is the ‘vogue’ aesthetic as prescribed by Edna Mode.

      The Spice Girls cover doesn’t count because both Edna Mode and her are ashamed of that one. As validation, Posh wants a solo cover.

      i have to say that she’s not as shamelessly famewhorey as she used to be, but this vogue business is extremely funny especially when you think that she doesn’t need one because she is a success whether Edna Mode wishes to acknowledge it or not.

      • Josephine says:

        Apparently she should have had her man get all whiny and act like a crybaby to get a cover. Guess that’s how it’s done these days.

  16. INeedANap says:

    I feel weird saying it, but Brooklyn is going to be a handsome man.
    Ugh I remember when he was born. Stick a fork in me, I’m done.

  17. MonicaQ says:

    Do you think some people may now turn down the cover now that Kim Kardashian was on it? I’m doubtful but I was wondering that the other day.

    • Jaded says:

      I think you’re absolutely right – who wants a Vogue cover now that K&K have debased it to People Mag status? It’s like Vogue sloppy seconds.

  18. Clever hand says:

    I refuse to believe Vicky becks cares about anything Kim does.

  19. Nicolette says:

    Harper is just too adorable!

  20. Aria says:

    Depressed means she’s on carbs?

  21. Cody says:

    She never smiles in publc and I doubt she cares. She has a intense face on probably because she has to bus all those kids around and all the help. By the way I am never going to look at another Vogue again in the grocery check out or read it a newspaper stand since Kim. It is my silent protest.

    • sam says:

      She doesn’t like her mouth or smile so she doesn’t do it. Well that’s what I heard when I was a kid reading smash hits music magazine.

      • Lou says:

        I’ve heard that too. She used to smile a lot.

        I say don’t worry, Vicky. You had a Vogue cover in 1998, and you looked much cuter than Kim!

  22. Sarah says:

    Harper needs a Vogue cover!! Also can we talk about creeper Depp on Cruz’s sweatshirt?

  23. MaiGirl says:

    Wait, the Spice Girls are touring again? I mean, I liked them back in the day, but isn’t it time for the other ladies to move on? I know no one has much going on besides Victoria, but this seems a little tacky and try-hard.

  24. The Original Mia says:

    Victoria’s dresses are designed for women of every size. That’s the appeal. If someone Oprah’s size can rock one of her dresses, the same as someone Victoria’s size, then that’s a line that has appeal across size ranges.

    Victoria doesn’t need Anna Wintour’s approval to make it. She’s made it without that anointing. Let Anna go down in flames with the likes of Kanye & Kim.

  25. MsAubra says:

    GUUURL!! You are Posh, she’s Kim K…aint nothing for you to be depressed about!

  26. Dawn says:

    I would certainly hope that Victoria Beckham is in no way depressed over a cover that official trashed Vogue and put it on the same level as People. At least to me that is what happened. Plus Victoria is a million times better than Kim could ever hope to be. Kim will always be thought of as the girl that got pissed on in a raunchy sex tape by Brandi’s little brother and then went on to get married for ratings and money and then went on to get pregnant by one man while refusing to annul a marriage to another and delivered her child a mere 2 weeks after her divorce was final. In other words nothing or no one will ever to be able to take the taint off of Kim. Victoria never had to get as low as Kim for fame.

  27. Jayna says:

    Kim only got a cover because Kanye went public and whined and whined about it to everybody and Anna caved to her friend, Kanye and even then she still only got a cover as long as she had Kanye in it and in the magazine it was Kanye and baby with Kim in different shots. Kim did not rate a cover by herself and this is the only way Anna would let her on. Kim should be in a What Not To Wear segment in a Reality Magazine.

    I don’t get Posh not getting on American Vogue, because she’s a style icon, a fashion designer, has a successful label, great fashion sense. Kim has Sears with her sisters and is famous for being peed on and her ass. And going through with that marriage To Kris purely for money shows what a grifter this family is. Posh would never lower herself to beg for a cover.

  28. Jarredsgirl says:

    What a good looking family!

    I wonder if Vic has had a British vogue cover? Seeing as she is British wouldn’t that be better?

  29. Vicky Hogan says:

    Wintour did regret about Spice Girls cover on Vogue. I think she will regret about KK and KW cover eventually in the future. But now it’s all about money.

  30. floretta50 says:

    Kim K got a Vogue cover so who cares, for those who care i think they have a valid point. Exactly what does Kim Kadashian have to share with the public, quite frankly it’s nobody’s fault but hers how much she is being scrutinized and criticized your reputation follows you and hers is quite nasty. Even now looking at her magazine spread she just sits there, stone faced with her cosmetically enhanced face, what worldly experience does she have to share with the world that would benefit anybody, nothing of substance really, so what is the point for her being on the cover of vogue, it’s not her fault it’s Ms Ventors , as to where she is headed with her magazine now that she has featured such an empty vessel on her cover.

  31. Meggin says:

    I honestly think Victoria deserved the cover way more than Kim did.

  32. Just Me says:

    Dear Victoria: if Kim Kardashian is on the packaging, you don’t want any part of it.

  33. Eugines says:

    Why would she be despressed about this? No amount of Vogue covers will ever help KK get to A list status or will help keep her ‘famous’. She only got the cover because Canine West went ranting to the public how she deserves a cover blah blah blah. Then she and him had the nerve to say that they did not harass Wintour for one, when it was clearly obvious.
    Victoria Beckham never had her husband begging for a Vogue cover like Canine did for his loser. Victoria Beckhem already has A list status as a former Spice Girl and a successful designer. David is also a A list soccer player. At the end of the day, those two win over that trashy D list couple known as Canine West and Kim Kartrashian.
