Rumor: David Wants Premier League Return After LA Contract Ends

David Beckham is now unlikely to play for Tottenham Hotspur where he is currently training and will return to the LA Galaxy in mid-February. However in the summer his representatives plan to negotiate a permanent move for the 35-year-old away from America and back to European club football.

A friend of the midfielder told the Guardian: "It now seems almost definite that David will not play for Spurs but he is still training, which was always the plan, and he will be back with the Galaxy by the middle of February.

"In the summer when he has only six months left on his contract and is effectively a free agent, [his agents] will sit down and negotiate for him to make a move. There are a number of options and interested clubs. David still believes he has a lot to offer at the highest level."

It is understood Beckham's preferred choice would be a Premier League club that will compete in next season's Champions League. With ambitions still to play for England, Beckham understands he must be performing regularly for as high a ranking club as possible.

Celebrities in VB: Gwyneth Paltrow in Victoria Beckham Denim Spring 2011

Gwyneth Paltrow was spotted out and about wearing a brand new pair of Victoria Beckham spring 2011 jeans. This makes her the first celebrity to be spotted in a pair. Gwyneth wore the Knee Zip Ankle Skinny jeans in black with a navy coat, gray scarf, and boots.

These jeans have details on the knees as you can see in the closeup below. They feature panelled leather, suede , zippers, and glittery fabric.
I really liked how they look on the model as they are fitted exactly to her body. They look a bit less than fabulous on Gwyneth however. It almost seems as if they are a bit big which leaves bunches at the knees.

Who Wore it Better: Victoria or Michelle Obama?

Both Victoria and Michelle Obama have worn this Marc Jacobs dress recently. Victoria wore it a few months ago while making her way to London. The fashion designer wore her Brian Atwood Maniac pumps with it and VB sunglasses. Victoria also toted matching taupe bags from her new line. Mrs. Obama wore it with brown tights and knee high brown boots during a news conference on food availability and affordability on January 20th.

So who wore it better? Honestly, I think this dress suits both of them well but I prefer Victoria's bare legs and nude pumps to Michelle's tights and boots.

Celebrities in VB: Demi Moore in Victoria Beckham Spring 2011 - #90

Two words come to mind every time I see or hear something about Demi Moore... ageless and effortless. That is because the woman never seems to get any older (so jealous!) and she always looks so elegant and chic... and she never seems to have to try hard at all!

On the 25th, the actress attended the "Margin Call" Premiere at the Eccles Center Theatre during the 2011 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. To the premier, she wore one of her favorite designers... Victoria Beckham.

Demi wore the zip front bell dress, #90, from Victoria's new spring 2011 collection. The dress is made of carbon gloss stripe jacquard fabric with a zipper in the front and a grosgrain belt. This dress was not my favorite on the runway by any means but I love it on Demi. She oozes sex appeal here with her zipper undone midway. I would've loved to have seen her wear different shoes (I'm over the boot/booties with dresses right now) and no tights.

James Corden wants Becks as his Best Man

James Corden has stated that he wants David Beckham to be his best man.

The Gavin And Stacey comedian "sort of fell in love" with Beckham and his family after the pair filmed a Sport Relief sketch together last year.

The Mail On Sunday now reports that Corden is hoping to have the England star by his side when he weds fiancée Julia Carey in 2012.

When asked who he was considering for the important role, Corden enthused: "David Beckham would be awesome and I think I’ll be asking him. The Beckhams are such a great family."

Corden proposed to Carey on Christmas Day 2010, three months after the couple confirmed that they were soon to become parents. Beckham is also expecting a fourth child with his wife Victoria.

Victoria Craves British Breakfast Fave - Marmalade

According to Now magazine, pregnant Victoria Beckham is having intense pregnancy cravings for a British breakfast favorite - marmalade.

"Victoria's having a lot of tea and toast with lashings of marmalade," says a source. "She can't get enough of the stuff. Mostly she's been having it on toast, accompanied by lots of cups of tea."

I can't wait until we get full lengths shots of her and we get to see her growing baby bump and 4th time maternity style! She kind of hid a bit while pregnant the last time and I hope this go around doesn't prove the same! But hey, atleast we have Fashion Week next month!

The Victoria Sells Out on NAP UK

Like I said, I read that the Victoria bag was going to be uploaded to NAP this past week and in fact it was... the UK site only though. Even though the bag just hit the international market and with a £2,300 price tag, it sold out within mere minutes of it's launch!

I knew this bag was going to be a hot item and I can't wait to see who is spotted carrying it around! The Victoria has not yet been uploaded to the US site, but I'm sure we will see it there very very soon... maybe even this coming week!

Did anyone happen to snag one??

Something to Look Forward to!!

We finally have a date!

It has officially been confirmed that Victoria Beckham is scheduled to present her fall 2011 collection on February 13th during New York Fashion Week!

So excited! I can't wait to see the new designs!

No other info has been released just yet (time and or place), but I have already started a countdown on the side bar! Yay!

The Victoria Bag to Come to NAP this Week?

According to InStyle, the infamous Victoria bag from Victoria's very first handbag collection is set to come to Net-a-Porter this week.

Apparently the bag was supposed to launch on the online store late last week but I checked and nothing was added to her page on the site.

Hopefully this means that we will see the bag sometime very soon (aka this week). Yesterday, three of the spring 2011 dress designs were added and there already have been two handbags available... which have both already sold out and have been restocked.

I'll keep checking and definitely post information when it is sure to be available for purchase. Get those credit cards ready ladies. And wink wink to you gentleman out there... a Victoria bag would make a lovely, and very special, Valentine's Day gift! ;)

Who Wore it Better: Victoria or Kim Kardashian?

This Alexander McQueen optical illusion dress is from the designer's resort 2009 collection. Victoria was first to wear it nearly two years ago when she dined in Milan with David. She paired it with black patent Miu Miu Whipstitch pumps and a satin headband. Kim wore a longer version of the dress for a promotional photo shoot for her latest E! series Kourtney & Kim Take NY. Kim accessorized with a chunky bangle and black platform peeptoes.

So who wore it better, Victoria or Kim? For me, I much prefer Victoria's shorter length and I really liked the fact that it give the illusion of curves on VB's petite frame. Kim on the other hand is known for her curvaceous bod and I think this makes her hips appear a bit wider. It's not a bad look on her but I'd rather have Victoria's shorter version so VB wins for me.

David Beckham Considering a Permanent Switch?

By Harry Harris, ESPN

David Beckham will consider a permanent move back to the Premier League on a free transfer as he prepares for his final season with Los Angeles Galaxy.

Beckham is currently training with Tottenham Hotspur with a view to securing a short-term loan. And while negotiations with his MLS club appear to have reached a stalemate, his time at Spurs has wetted Beckham's appetite for a return to English football.

A close insider told ESPNsoccernet: "All the focus of attention has been on whether David Beckham will be allowed to play for Spurs on loan, but little has been said about what he plans to do when he is free to choose, and there is no question he has enjoyed himself so much training with Spurs that the possibility of him considering a permanent move back to English football cannot be ruled out."

Beckham will be 36-years-old when he becomes a free agent next January, although he has made it clear that he intends to play on until he is 40.

The former Manchester United midfielder would prefer to remain in London if he returns to the Premier League, with Spurs and Fulham tipped to offer the veteran a contract.

Fulham owner Mohamed Al-Fayed enjoys a close personal relationship with the Beckhams and would offer the superstar a far ranging role at Craven Cottage, as both a player and ambassador for youth development.

Kate Walsh & Rosario Dawson Love Victoria's Designs

For InStyle online's "Everyday is a Red Carpet" feature, they asked several celebrities who their favorite celebrity designer was. Both Kate Walsh, who I've yet to see wear a VB piece, and Rosario Dawson listed Victoria as a favorite.

Kate Walsh:
"I love the Olsen sisters. I love The Row. I'm obsessed with them. I think everything they make is great. And Victoria Beckham's stuff is beautiful."
Rosario Dawson:

"Victoria Beckham. I've worn several of her dresses. They’re cool, architecturally classy, simple, basic cuts and colors, but they’re banging. It helps when designers are hot women themselves because they really get it."

Love Rosario's comment!

Rumor: David Cried Several Times Over Pregnancy News

Becks reportedly cried when Posh told him she was pregnant with their fourth child…Not just once but over and over again.. aww!

Victoria broke the news during a trip back to London last November over a romantic meal at home.

She started a conversation about their future as a family and whether it should be in the UK or US, ” a source says. But when he said they have three children to think about, she smiled and said ‘four’. “He told her he couldn’t have wished for better news. He’s so happy, he can’t stop crying!”

Victoria, 36, reportedly told their three boys about her pregnancy on Christmas Day prompting fresh tears from David again. How sweet David!

Galaxy Denies Beckham Once Again

David Beckham’s stint with English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur descended further into farce on Thursday when the England midfielder was barred from playing in a training game.

The Galaxy took a hard line from the outset, insisting that under the terms of his contract – which only has one season left – he must report back in California for preseason training on Feb. 10.

Now Major League Soccer’s most famous team has taken things a step further by refusing to allow the 35-year-old to take part in a practice match against squad players from second-tier English team Queens Park Rangers.

However, according to sources close to the club and a report in the Guardian newspaper, the Galaxy told Tottenham that Beckham did not have permission to take the field due to an ongoing insurance dispute. The two parties have not been able to agree on who should pay the insurance premium that protects the Galaxy against financial loss if he is injured.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp told the English media last week that Beckham had been given the all-clear to take part in full practice games. “(Beckham) can just join in and train properly,” Redknapp told the Guardian’s David Hytner.

Beckham’s spokesman Simon Oliveira claimed early on Friday that the player had not planned to take part in the training game, and had no interest in doing so.

The Beckhams Dine with Emma as She Announces Her Engagement

Victoria also took to her official Twitter page and tweeted the following message...
"Congratulations Emma and Jade on your engagement!we are so happy for you!x vb x"

In VB's Closet: Lanvin Feathered Ouloulette Shoulder Bag

While out to dinner at Nobu, Victoria's ensemble may have been a bit drab, but her Lanvin Feathered Ouloulette shoulder bag was very spicy (excuse the horrific pun!).

The bag is very whimsical with champagne colored ostrich feathers hanging from the delicate chain strap. It is also adorned with a fabulous jewel snap button closure. You can purchase this bag at Neiman Marcus here for $1,185 and you have three color choices - champagne (like Victoria), black, or violet.

The Beckhams Dine Out at Nobu

On Thursday night, David and Victoria were spotted exiting Nobu in London... one of their favorite restaurants. Victoria wore an all black ensemble and David sported a knitted cap.

The couple took their silver Rolls Royce out for a spin. My fiance loves the red interior!

On the other hand, is anyone else really interested in seeing full length photos? I know I am and ever since they've been in London and she announced her pregnancy, all we've gotten is car shots. Hopefully we'll get some soon so we can start a bump watch!

Golden Globes Red Dress Deja Vu

Last night, while I was watching the red carpet appearances at the Golden Globes and then the awards ceremony, I couldn't help but get a sense of deja vu when I saw January Jones in her show stopping red dress. I was thinking to myself, where have I seen this before, and then I remembered that Victoria wore something very similar back in 2005 to Elton John's wedding.

Is it just me or does January's Versace dress and Victoria's Cavalli bear striking similarities? Not necessarily from the runway pictures... but I can definitely see them when I look at the two stars dressed in red side by side! Does anyone else see this as well?

Victoria Beckham Denim Spring 2011

The new look book for the Victoria Beckham denim collection for spring/summer 2011 has finally been uploaded onto Victoria's official website! While browsing through them, I must admit... I love them all!

There are several trends within the upcoming season that I happened to notice and they are:
Lots of skinny styles! Ever since Victoria revamped her denim range, there has yet to be a collection that does not include skinny jeans. For spring/summer 2011, there are several new skinny styles available in a variety of colors (midnight, cip Cipria, soft greens,indigo, and graphite) and finishes (which includes glossy).

Another trend is zipper details! Like skinny styles, Victoria always adds in jeans that have lots of zipper detailing within her new denim collections. This time around there are the staple ankle zips and brand new knee zips as well!

Cloudy gray colors are also very dominant in the spring/summer 2010 collection. Perfect for running around casually in the daytime sun or dressing up with bold and colorful accessories at night!

Leggings are also included in the new collection. Unlike last season, for spring there are only two new legging styles. One of them is a fantastic mirrored material and the other is a chic leather in bright colors like the blush tone above.

Loose tops are also available for spring. Victoria usually adds tops to her denim collection and in the past they were typically different variations of tank tops. The latest collection showcases loose fitting tops in comfortable fabrics and alluring tones.

Lastly, she added in a denim jacket. Can't wait to see her running around in this!
Anyone notice that the model is either barefoot or wearing Victoria's (and my) favorite Brian Atwood satin Maniac pumps?
