We admit it, we’re just pretending to care what Victoria Beckham thinks. We’re really only amused that she has slated another person’s style. In a manner that says, ‘Love me, I still wear weird things too’.
Remember when every one used to care what hair clips the former Spice Girl wore? No? Nor do we. But we have it on good authority that she used to be trendy and every up-and-coming fashionista would look to her for what to wear.
She was the face of credible high fashion brands. And she was successfully pushing her own lines. Then it all went dark. Or something.
She was suddenly less interesting. Being swapped out in fashion campaigns like a post-pubescent kid on a daytime soap opera. No one was talking about her clothing any more. And she didn’t have quite the power to brainwash the masses that she used to. The former singer seems a little bitter about this. That’s just our observation, based on a recent quote Victoria gave about Lady Gaga.
Lady Gaga is the new oddly-dressed kid on the block; she’s the trendsetter, who makes as many headlines for wearing a weird pair of shoes as she does for anything else. BREAKING: Lady Gaga? is wearing a slightly wackier pair of 9-inch heels than she was yesterday, shocker.
In a last ditch attempt to draw attention back to her over-priced jeans and the like, Victoria pointed out the following (via Grazia).
“I have a lot of respect that she can walk in those shoes going through airports. I mean, goodness, people think I dress up to go to an airport! I think she’s really doing her thing. That’s her,” Victoria told WWD.? “If I’m being completely honest, is it fair to say she may have become a little bit of a parody of herself? Is that fair to say?”
As though, and let’s be blunt, the same is not true about Victoria. She became a parody of herself somewhere in between selling her soul to Prada and that desperate ham-fisted breaking America thing she did a few years back.
Except Lady Gaga is still fairly new at this. And she’s still somewhat interesting to look at. And her shoes are almost always wackier.
This was a guest post by Amy Grindhouse, so hooray for that.
