Victoria Beckham Wants to Celebrate a Woman's Curves

09/21/2010 at 02:45 PM ET


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 –Jessie Goldberg

Hi, When the word curves I think of my body and curves too (I got a lot now). Now when Victoria Beckham is saying it I’m like why you saying that you skinny and pretty too and don’t have a curve in your body at all (the other people in this article don’t have a curve at all expect Drew Barrymore she got some curves). Plus these famous people got to think not ever body can afford or able to wear your designer clothes at all. Plus the average lady in American is a size 12 so why make clothes for the average lady and plus size ladies too. I wear a size 18 and very proud of that. If I was a famous person I would make clothes that ever body can wear and afford too and also make it for petite ladies too (I’m short lady too).

What would this beanpole know about curves?? For the record, I AM NOT overweight in the slightest, but I do know the difference between thin, and unhealthy, and lets face it, this woman looks ILL. Once upon a time she had a beautiful face, until the bones beneath it began to show! Please someone feed her a sandwich!

“I want to celebrate a woman’s curves, though you’re right, I don’t have that many myself,” she says.
Some of you are in such a hurry to criticize her, you missed what she said.

I get really tired of every women wanting to be thin & emulate what they see & then the 1st opportunity you get you cut each other up.

Did you ever think that just as some women can’t lose wait, others can’t gain weight.

I truly don’t understand why it is not ok to call someone out when they are fat – but each of you cut up the ‘skinny’ girl!

Get over it ladies its’ called jealously!!!

The woman is too thin & all you have to do is look at her Spice Girl days to see her natural weight so anyone offended by mine & other opinions that she’s one to talk, let us air ours as you air yours.
I actually think her desings are amazing so nope not hating either.

I agree with drgnldy14…Victoria Beckham and curves in the same sentence?? OXYMORON!!!! She wouldn’t know curves if they hit her in the face! Please stick to something you know…..oh wait…that would be NOTHING!

For the rest, then there’s her huge alien-shaped head on her stick figure…enough of her already…have another baby for cry’n out loud and fade into the woodwork!

SERIOUSLY??? She must have a whole bunch of “curvy” ladies like me working for her to attempt to show her what curves are…..then she can get all the $$$ when unsuspecting women buy her stuff. I cannot believe Whoopi did not laugh her off the set!
