VIC­TO­RIA BECK­HAM jets back from the Big Ap­ple to join her fam­ily who are en­joy the Christ­mas fes­tiv­i­ties across the At­lantic

Hello! Middle East - - THIS WEEK -

She may not be join­ing her former Spice Girls band­mates on their re­union tour, but Vic­to­ria Beck­ham con­firmed last week that she will at least be cheer­ing them on from the au­di­ence.

The fash­ion de­signer spoke for the first time about why she has de­cided not to join the girls on stage, say­ing that she is too busy with her work com­mit­ments – but she would “ab­so­lutely” be in the crowd at some point.

“I have so much go­ing on with my busi­ness and my fam­ily,” she ex­plained. “I think the girls are go­ing to do a great job [with­out me].”

HOL­I­DAY SPIRIT

Prov­ing just how busy she is with her epony­mous cloth­ing la­bel – she is also plan­ning to launch her own YouTube chan­nel with beauty and fash­ion tu­to­ri­als – the 44-year-old didn’t get much rest in the city that never sleeps when she flew to New York on busi­ness.

Al­though she wrote: “It’s cold in NYC!” on her In­sta­gram sto­ries, she seemed im­mune to the chill when she flew back to Lon­don to join her fam­ily who hadn’t ac­com­pa­nied her on this work trip.

Get­ting right into the hol­i­day spirit, the dash­ing cou­ple were seen cel­e­brat­ing at the Haig Club hol­i­day party on Mon­day night at the Lay­low pri­vate mem­bers club in Lon­don.

David hosted the party along­side en­tre­pre­neur Jef­fer­son Hack -- who shares daugh­ter Lila Grace with su­per­model Kate Moss.

Even though Lila wasn’t at the soiree, 19-year-old Brook­lyn Beck­ham made an ap­pear­ance to sup­port his fa­ther, as did Louise Beck­ham, David’s sis­ter.

Other celebri­ties who turned up to the former foot­baller’s event in­cluded

close friend Dave Gard­ner -- who is dat­ing ac­tress Liv Tyler -- the co­me­dian Jack White­hall, as well as Snatch di­rec­tor Guy Ritchie.

It is ru­moured that Guy and David will be go­ing into busi­ness soon as they’ve snapped up a pub that they’re hop­ing to com­pletely ren­o­vate and re­open into an ex­clu­sive Soho House style bolt-hole for the A-list.

Show­ing that Vic­to­ria wasn’t the only one with se­ri­ous style cre­den­tials in the fam­ily, David donned a suave fit­ted grey suit which he teamed with a brown polo neck sweater.

WIN­TER FUN FOR DAVID AND GANG

Whilst Vic­to­ria was tend­ing to busi­ness in New York, the fun didn’t stop for the rest of the clan in Lon­don.

Her hus­band David was hold­ing the fort with the cou­ple’s chil­dren Brook­lyn, 19, Romeo, 16, Cruz, 13, and Harper, seven.

The former foot­baller took the op­por­tu­nity to en­joy a qual­ity af­ter­noon out with Harper at the ice skat­ing rink at the Nat­u­ral His­tory Mu­seum in South Kens­ing­ton. Fa­ther and daugh­ter seemed to be hav­ing a whale of a time at the rink, with dot­ing dad David, 43, snap­ping pho­tos as Harper showed off her skat­ing skills.

There was more snowy fam­ily fun to be had when Cruz and Romeo joined Harper and David for a trip to the Win­ter Won­der­land fun­fair in Lon­don’s Hyde Park.

Mak­ing the most of all the at­trac­tions, the gang were seen try­ing out the rides and sam­pling the food on sale, in­clud­ing gi­gan­tic hot dogs.

David joined Harper in a bumper car and later went on some of the faster rides with Cruz, with the two hav­ing a go on a sling­shot, which fired them high into the air in a caged ball.

Nei­ther dare­devil seemed fazed by the fast­paced ac­tion and laughed and joked as they were brought back down to earth.

Vic­to­ria strides out in a sheer black top that she teams with black jeans de­spite the cold. David fol­lows in a smart grey suit and polo­neck
