Victoria Beckham Wants to Celebrate a Woman's Curves

Has Victoria Beckham finally arrived as a designer? Certainly sounds like it! The star visited The View on Friday, just in time to relive the glory of her Fashion Week. “It’s been a real whirlwind. I’m in my fifth season and just showed my fifth collection during Fashion Week and it was a huge success, I mean the reviews were great,” she said. “To be on the cover of WWD is such a big deal.” And it’s not all glitz and glamour, as Posh explained her working process. “It was me in my studio, with a meter and a half of parachute silk, draping it on myself and tying it in a knot and saying ‘Ok what do I think?’…It really is a dream come true.” In addition to her models, who Victoria insists be healthy and not too young, stars such as Demi Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow and Drew Barrymore support Victoria’s sophisticated, sexy designs. But, Michelle Obama has yet to join the fan club. “I actually dressed Sarah Jessica Parker for an event at the White House so I’m getting there, I’m in the door!” she joked. And the reason that so many women are responding to her designs? “I want to celebrate a woman’s curves, though you’re right, I don’t have that many myself,” she says. “I love a woman’s body and I want to make women look and feel fantastic.” For more, visit abc.go.com –Jessie Goldberg

Hopefully Victoria will find some role models who have some curves.

To me, saying a skinny woman can’t appreciate the beauty of curvy woman is like saying a blonde woman must only find other blondes attractive. It’s ridiculous!
Clearly, Victoria Beckham likes keeping herself very thin (fyi, to me, a little too thin). My only issue with her statement on wanting to make clothes to “celebrate curves” is that she herself is thin and she said: “It was me in my studio, with a meter and a half of parachute silk, draping it on myself and tying it in a knot and saying ‘Ok what do I think?’. If she’s draping stuff on herself as the mannequin, than she’s designing clothes for thinner builds NOT curvy people. Make sense?

@graham: She shouldn’t be talking about curves if she has no idea what they look like. Sorry, I’m not jealous, just honest. I don’t “hate” thin people, that’s ridiculous for you to even write something very childish. She obviously starves herself to look anorexic, it’s not natural. That being said, if she likes the anorexic look she shouldn’t be a hypocrite and celebrate curves! DUH!

Just because Posh looks best thin doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to celebrate other women’s curves.All you haters are just jealous because she is successfull, fun and gorgeous! How do you bash men who design women’s clothes and what is the difference there. You think they are secretly women?Puhleeze!

@ Graham and arj27 – no one is hating on her and we agree that she should embrace her ‘body’, and has an amazing life, but she has nary a curve. THAT is what we are trying to stress, and curves don’t only apply to size 8-10 either, curves are women that are in the 18+ sizes…she wouldn’t have a clue as to how to dress women of that caliber and they make up a large percentage of this population. Can those ladies find selections in her new line?

Curves? What does she know about curves? She is as straight as a 2×4!!

She is so full of it. She knows NOTHING about curves. Fake fake fake. She looks horrible by the way. A stick figure boney skeletor. She so skinny she look unhealthy. near death

Her dresses looked gorgeous. Jennifer Hudson wore one of her dresses and it looked amazing on her. It could have been before Jennifer was doing Weight Watchers too. Im not sure.
