Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes Call Each Other to Ask: 'What Are You Wearing?'

Victoria Beckham Gives Katie Holmes Fashion Advice

Imagine ringing your best friend to ask that silly question girls ask, “What are you wearing?” and having her respond, “Why not something one of us designed?”

That’s the reality for real-life pals, Katie Holmes (who helms Holmes & Yang) and Victoria Beckham, whose colorful, yet restrained collection consistently sells out on luxury e-tailer Net-A-Porter. “We go to the same events, and we’ll call each other to ask, ‘What color are you wearing?'” Holmes tells ELLE. “I’m always interested in what she’s liking for the season.”

And Holmes isn’t the designer’s only A-list fan. “When we have Victoria’s stuff in the studio, it’s the first thing Cameron Diaz tries on,” stylist Rachel Zoe says of her client. “But any woman would feel sexy in her dresses.”

All of that feedback must be humbling for Beckham, who was anxious to tell another designer pal of plans to take her knack for fashion to the big leagues. “We went out to dinner one night, and he said, ‘I saw that you put out a collection,'” she recalls of breaking the news to Marc Jacobs. “I felt embarrassed to tell Marc Jacobs that I — me, ex-Spice Girl, married to a footballer — was creating a fashion line.”

She has reason to be embarassed. He’s an actual designer, and she probably hasn’t sewn a day in her life.

I don’t think Katie can hold a candle to Victoria. People rave about katie’s clothes i don;t get it. Victoria on the other hand is amazing.

Two bimbos married to two overrated idiots.

Victoria is should be known as Skeleton Spice…what a bag of bones.

Katie Holmes? Her career went into the toliet and marries an aging goof ball known in hollywood as the guy that sang into a trophy in his underwear!

What talents!
