Why Is Victoria Beckham Wearing Flats?

It’s a photograph we never thought we’d see: fashion maven Victoria Beckham in flats. But it’s happened; the star was spotted in Hollywood this week without her signature stilettos, opting instead for a pair of plain black flats.

Why the change? A rep for the designer had no comment, but a source confirms to PEOPLE that Beckham must wear flats as she recovers from a slipped disc in her back. So will she be back in heels in time for New York Fashion Week? Only time will tell.

“She’ll have to see how she feels,” the source tells PEOPLE. “Heels will put added pressure on the damaged area but it’s healing well, so it may not be an issue in another couple weeks.”

Regardless, Beckham still looks glam, and fans are wishing the new mom a speedy recovery. “Thank u for your kind messages,” she said in reply on Twitter last week. “I’m feeling much better and enjoying every precious minute with baby Harper, I’m so in love. X VB.”

It’s funny. She always said she would never wear flats! This whole website is ridiculous and yet you comment on how dumb THIS ARTICLE is? Why are you reading PEOPLE? Who actually cares about anything? It’s silly. It’s not important. It’s ENTERTAINMENT. I liked the article.

For some reason, she looks so much better in flats.

Okay, for the people complaining that this isn’t news, remember-we are on people. com under the STYLE WATCH section. If you want “real” news go to Huffington Post (or wherever you prefer to get your news).
