Vic­to­ria’s too Posh to push the Spice Girls

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - News -

THE Spice Girls are re­unit­ing for a tour that is go­ing to net them a cou­ple of mil­lion each. But they are hav­ing to do it with­out Posh Spice, who has re­fused to join in. And no won­der. For Vic­to­ria Beck­ham those tak­ings are chicken feed, and why would she want to revisit the past? There comes a point where a Wannabe be­comes a Has­been.

When I in­ter­viewed Vic­to­ria in 2008 for her first Vogue cover story, she was per­form­ing in the last Spice Girls tour.

She in­vited me and my fam­ily to come to the show and wel­comed us into her dress­ing room where, as David fix­ated on his phone, she was done up in full Posh re­galia – squeezed into a shiny bronze cat­suit, caked in fake tan with a stiff hel­met of hair gel and tot­ter­ing around in plat­form shoes that make her nor­mal stilet­tos look like comfy slip­pers. Ten years later her world has moved on and she is now a so­phis­ti­cated fash­ion de­signer whose every pub­lic ap­pear­ance is an ad­vert for her busi­ness.

Any hint of a la­tex cat­suit could kill that hard-won brand im­age stone dead.
