The ex Posh Spice, an internationally renowned stylist, tackles a delicate issue, linked to alleged standards of beauty in transformation: «Thinness is no longer in fashion. In Miami I see a lot of them walking on the beach and I find that their style is truly liberating: it’s not about having a certain size, but about feeling good about yourself “.
In September 2016, on the occasion of the show in New York of her summer collection, Victoria Beckham was accused by the British press of sending too thin models on the catwalk. A controversy that resurfaced sixteen months later, in January 2018, after the launch campaign for her new eyewear line. Today the former Posh Spice returns to the delicate theme and speaks of the current (alleged) standards of beauty.
“Wishing to be thin is an old-fashioned attitude”, that is linked to an old conception of fashion, a trend that is now outdated. According to the English designer, in fact, modern women «want to look healthy and curvy, they want to have breasts and backsides. I see a lot of them in Miami walking along the beach, with few clothes on, they are fantastic », adds Victoria. “They show bodies with confidence: both their attitude and their style are truly liberating.”
Basically, “they celebrate their curves and are happy with how they look”, reiterates the former singer, revealing that he indicated them to her daughter Harper Seven as a model to follow precisely for their freedom from prejudice. “It’s not about having a certain size. It’s about knowing who you are and being comfortable with yourself. Personally, growing up I reached my balance between wanting to have fun and being disciplined, both in training and in healthy eating “.
“My wife has been eating the same things for 25 years,” smiled David Beckham a few months ago, guest of the culinary podcast Table 4 of the starred River Café. «She Grilled fish and steamed vegetables, she rarely deviates from this meal. The only time she tasted something on my plate was when she was pregnant with Harper: it was incredible, one of my favorite evenings. I can’t quite remember what food she was, but she hasn’t done it since. “
Who knows that in the near future, Victoria decides to extend the fork on David’s plate again.
