Posh picks up the pen for Vogue

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - WORLD -

PARIS: Ex-Spice Girl turned fash­ion de­signer Vic­to­ria Beck­ham has guest- edited the Christ­mas edi­tion of Paris Vogue mag­a­zine, the pub­li­ca­tion an­nounced.

Beck­ham ap­pears in a se­duc­tive pose on the front cover of the mag­a­zine’s De­cem­ber/ Jan­uary is­sue with her re­tired foot­baller hus­band David Beck­ham, who is seen sport­ing a beard and din­ner jacket.

Ed­i­tor-in-chief Em­manuelle Alt said Beck­ham had “re­vealed her­self to be the op­po­site of her im­age” dur­ing her edit­ing stint.

In com­ments on the mag­a­zine’s web­site, she de­scribed her as “spon­ta­neous, full of hu­mour... mod­est but at the same time equipped with a healthy am­bi­tion”.

The is­sue, which goes on sale next week, would also of­fer re­veal­ing in­sights into the Beck­hams’ life to­gether, she added.

Beck­ham fol­lows in the foot­steps of Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. The model-turned-singer who is mar­ried to the for­mer French Pres­i­dent Ni­co­las Sarkozy was last year’s guest ed­i­tor.

Beck­ham played his fi­nal match for French team Paris Saint-Ger­main in May.

The Bri­tish cou­ple, who have four chil­dren to­gether, last week sparked queues around a Lon­don char­ity shop af­ter they do­nated 20 boxes of clothes and shoes to raise money for vic­tims of the Philip­pines typhoon. – Sapa-AFP
