Victoria Beckham decided to release her beauty products every month rather than all at once to keep her consumer base excited for the next drop.

The singer-turned-fashion designer launched her Victoria Beckham Beauty brand in September with the Smoky Eye Wardrobe, a collection consisting of eyeshadow palettes, cream shadows, and eyeliners, and she followed that up with Your Perfect Pout lip kit, which featured a lip tint and six lip pencils, in October.

Earlier this week, she revealed that she was making her debut in the skincare market with the Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturiser, a collaboration with German skincare expert Augustinus Bader, for her November drop.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday night, Beckham was asked why she decided to do monthly drops rather than release the whole beauty line in one go and she explained that the business model “makes sense”.

“You know I launched this beauty brand because I wanted to create a beauty brand of the future, with a real focus on clean beauty, sustainability and not comprising with the formulas and making sure that things are active and going direct to consumer,” the 45-year-old explained. “It makes sense to do regular drops – it keeps it more exciting for the consumer, for my community.”

Jimmy then jokingly asked Beckham if it was necessary to buy separate moisturisers for the body and face, or if it was simply a marketing ploy, and she insisted that “there’s a lot of science that goes into these products”.

Beckham also said that she will be sending products from her line to her Spice Girls bandmates – Melanie Chisholm, Melanie Brown, Geri Horner, and Emma Bunton.

“I haven’t (yet) because I’ve only just got mine but will send it to the Spice Girls,” she added.

French designer Roland Mouret is launching a sustainable bridal collection.

The fashion star founded his eponymous label in 1998 and had his major breakthrough in 2005 with his Galaxy dress, which was worn by a bunch of celebrities including Victoria Beckham, Halle Berry, Cameron Diaz, and Rachel Weisz.

Mouret, who has designed custom-made wedding dresses for clients in the past, is now launching his first official bridal collection, with the line consisting of multi-faceted pieces that can be worn again after the big day.

“The amount of fabric used for a bridal dress that you’re only going to wear once is a waste of material and a waste of space because you have to immediately pack it away,” he explained to Marie Claire.

His spring 2020 bridal collection will incorporate pieces that can be worn in normal daily life, from blazers, jumpsuits, and trousers to ankle-length skirts, as well as simple white dresses.

“My generation of designers went from two collections to four to six collections,” Mouret explained about his desire to be sustainable. “When you wake up and realise your creativity is destroying the planet…it’s quite a bitter feeling. But back then, we didn’t know any other way.”

In a bid to tackle the fashion industry’s problem with waste, Mouret, who also boasts Meghan, Duchess of Sussex as a celebrity fan, has designed the BLUE hanger with Dutch company Arch & Hook. He hopes the product, which is made from a mixture of plastic and other ocean debris, will replace the single-use plastic hangers used solely for transporting clothing from the factory to the retailer.

He will soon fly to Los Angeles to meet with members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and other leaders to discuss the product and call for changes to the industry.

“I know what’s in store for the future and I know what’s happening. I think we’re in an emergency, so this project makes me happy and sad at the same time,” he added.

Victoria Beckham is venturing into the skincare market with a new moisturiser.

The fashion designer and beauty executive Sarah Creal co-founded Victoria Beckham Beauty earlier this year, with the line comprised of clean cosmetics made with luxurious ingredients.

Now, Beckham has announced the launch of a priming moisturiser formulated in collaboration with scientists at high-end German skincare company Augustinus Bader.

“I am so excited to finally announce my collaboration with Professor @augustinusbader,” she captioned a snap of herself and label founder Professor Augustinus Bader on her Instagram page. “I have been working on this for a long, long time and it has been a dream to develop, with Augustinus, a priming moisturiser that works to improve the health of my skin and gives that fresh, natural glow that I love.”

The moisturiser will be unveiled on 19 November. In a chat with Britain’s The Times’ newspaper, Beckham explained that the product was inspired by the Morning Aura cream that was included in her 2016 capsule collection for Estee Lauder, but insisted the new version is “better”.

And Professor Bader is also very pleased with the final result.

“It was an honour to collaborate with Victoria for her first skin launch. I’m excited to share some of our skincare benefits in this product. It’s the first product of its kind to care for your skin cells while also preparing your skin for make-up application,” he commented.

Professor Bader’s The Cream, a deeply hydrating moisturiser, has developed a huge following among celebrities, with fans including Diane Kruger and Kim Kardashian. A 50ml bottle of The Cream costs $265 (£205).

Victoria Beckham is focused on finding ways to make her fashion brand more sustainable.

The British designer is one of the busiest names in the industry, as she not only runs her eponymous label but also collaborates with the team at Reebok on sportswear collections.

But looking to the future, Beckham is determined to make her labels as eco-friendly as possible.

“I want to make my woman feel like the best version of herself, whether that’s through beauty or through fashion,” she said in a video celebrating her cover interview for the December 2019 issue of Vogue Polska. “I think we have a lot to do, with regards to educating ourselves and challenging mills that we work with to work on sustainable fabrics. But I think we all have a responsibility; we have a lot of catching up to do.”

For the cover of the Polish fashion publication, Beckham is seen posing in a beige suit and white shirt from her pre-spring/summer 2020 collection, while in other images from the photoshoot, she wears an emerald green velvet suit and a chic white suit with black buttons. The designer was photographed by Alexi Lubomirski, with Lisa Eldridge in charge of make-up and Ken Paves tasked with styling her hair in a loose chignon.

Elsewhere in the short clip, Beckham discussed the benefits of her celebrity status, particularly in relation to being able to use her platform to promote positive causes.

“I think if you are famous and you can use that for a good cause, if you can use that and use your voice in a positive way, then I think fame is great,” the 45-year-old mused. “If I can inspire anybody to just follow their dreams, however many times you’re told ‘No’, then that’s my job done.”

The new edition of Vogue Polska hits newsstands on 14 November.

Paris Hilton owns at least 100 Juicy Couture tracksuits

Paris Hilton can’t stop adding to her Juicy Couture tracksuit collection.

The socialite/TV personality was one of the major trendsetters of the early 2000s, and when she was not hitting the nightclubs in tiny party dresses, was often seen sporting velour tracksuit sets from California-based label Juicy Couture which she matched with Von Dutch T-shirts.

Yet, Paris has never grown tired of wearing tracksuits when off-duty, and in an interview with The Guardian, she shared that she has a wardrobe full of them.

“Growing up, I always had my own sense of style. I loved being unique and original and coming up with my own trends,” she told the publication. “When I go to a party, I love to be glamorous and go all out; I like to sparkle and feel amazing. However, my everyday wear is very comfortable. I love Juicy Couture’s velour tracksuits; I probably own 100 of them in every colour. That’s my uniform when I’m chilling at home or going to the beach – anything that doesn’t involve a red carpet.”

Paris went on to name Kate Moss and Victoria Beckham as two of her style icons, and also noted that she appreciates her younger sister Nicky Hilton’s “understated” fashion choices.

Elsewhere in the chat, the blonde star reflected on her favourite style moments and selected the silver chainmail Julien Macdonald dress she wore to her 21st birthday party in 2001 as one of her top looks.

“It’s amazing that it has become so iconic; everybody wants to wear it. I feel proud every time I see someone wearing a version of this look,” the 38-year-old added.

Kim Jones feels fortunate to have the support of fellow designer Victoria Beckham.

The English fashion designer was appointed as creative director of Dior Homme in March 2018 and had the support of celebrities such as Beckham, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and Bella Hadid when he presented his first collection for the French fashion house during Paris Fashion Week: Men’s that June.

Jones and the Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer have been friends for a long time and have always attended each other’s fashion shows, and in an interview with WWD, he admitted he was grateful to have her on his side.

“I’m very fortunate with the people I’ve met in my life. Say someone like Victoria (Beckham), who I love immensely,” he said. “I will go to her shows and support her, and she comes to mine. I love having a dinner with her where we sit down and talk business, because I love the aspect that she comes from, and I love the fact that she knows what her skills are and who else to employ to make it even better. It’s really nice to have those conversations. I love talking work with people that I don’t work with.”

Jones, who was previously at Louis Vuitton for seven years before moving to Dior, added that he has been close friends with the likes of Victoria’s husband David Beckham, Donatella Versace, Moss and Campbell for “a long, long time”.

“They’ve been really supportive. I think people love the brand and they love me, so that’s kind of a good combination, you know?” the 46-year-old shared, before adding that he’s “shocked” when people he admires know who he is. “I’m more publicly visible, people come up to me in the street a lot more. I appreciate that. I’m always shocked when people that I really admire know who I am.”

Victoria Beckham drives her husband David Beckham “crazy” because she can’t travel light.

The fashion designer is always jetting around the world, and though she would love to fly with just carry-on baggage, she has now insisted that she will never be that woman.

“I always like to take a lot of options, so I’m not very good at travelling light,” she confessed during an interview for Live with Kelly and Ryan on Wednesday. “I like… options because you never know what you’re going to want to wear, how you’re going to feel, so I can never travel light.

“I do drive David pretty crazy and I always take up all the closet space (in hotels) as well with all my options. That’s just what we do.”

Victoria’s penchant for travelling with a wardrobe was recently tested when she and David celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary with a quick trip to Paris, France.

“We went to Paris for the weekend. Just the two of us because, you know what it’s like when you’ve got lots of children, it’s hard to spend time just the two of you.

“We had 24 hours, just the two of us, in Paris – which was so lovely,” the mother-of-four said, adding she doesn’t need to do much when she’s alone with her husband: “He’s David Beckham…I can just stare at him.”

Meanwhile, in a new beauty tutorial filmed for celebrity make-up artist Lisa Eldridge’s YouTube channel, Victoria shared that she has a very minimal make-up kit and rarely wears cosmetics during the day. Yet, the 45-year-old always grooms her eyebrows before she steps out the door.

“I’m fine to go out without any make-up on, the only thing I will always put on very, very quickly is a bit of a brow. It’s the only thing. It’s my safety blanket,” she smiled.

Victoria Beckham wants her new beauty line to empower women.

The fashion designer recently launched Victoria Beckham Beauty with her business partner Sarah Creal and told Harper’s Bazaar that the pair had a vision to create an all-encompassing clean beauty line that will eventually cover colour cosmetics, skincare, and wellness products.

For now, Victoria has focused on eyeshadow, and released four satin matte eyeshadow palettes, dubbed Smokey Eye Bricks, alongside four crystal-infused lid lustre pots and three different tones of satin kajal liner.

The 45-year-old explained that she and Sarah wanted to “create a beauty collection that was the future”, but resisted promising customers that their products could work miracles.

“It’s not about trying to make ourselves look any different, any younger. I’m not going to be coming out with products saying they’re going to get rid of wrinkles – because that’s bulls**t,” the mother-of-four said. “I think we should celebrate who we are, and be the best, most powerful version of ourselves and celebrate that and celebrate each other, and as women be strong together.”

The former Spice Girl said it “made sense” for her debut beauty line to focus on eyeshadows first.

“That is something that is very signature to me – a smoky, sexy eye,” she explained.

Victoria Beckham Beauty will launch lip products in October, and Victoria promised they have “a big strategy” about what products they will release in the future.

Victoria Beckham regrets wearing too much lip liner during her days in the Spice Girls.

The fashion designer, who recently launched her Victoria Beckham Beauty brand, was asked about her make-up fails during an interview with British talk show This Morning, and she pinpointed one look from the American Music Awards more than 20 years ago.

“There have been way too many! Way too much lip liner in the Spice Girls, way too much lip liner,” Beckham shared. “The American Music Awards was probably my worst ever make-up look. It was just a lot of everything. A lot of eye, a lot of lip, a LOT of blush but you know, it was the 90’s.

“I look back at those pictures and it makes me smile. It’s been a journey, it’s brought me to where I am and made me realise that quite often, you know, less is better.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the mother-of four revealed that she’s okay with growing older, and wants to look good for age, rather than trying to look younger.

“I’m fine with growing older. I’m not trying to look any younger at all. I just wanna look good for my age,” the 45-year-old explained. “I want to look like the best version of myself. I want to look after what I have. I don’t really want to change anything. And I’m okay with that. I like how getting older feels… I’m okay with how it looks, because it is what it is. Everybody is going to get older. (But) I don’t love how it sounds.”

Victoria Beckham has shared her favourite look from her days in the Spice Girls.

The fashion designer has revealed that she looks back fondly on her outfit from the girl group’s Goodbye music video from 1998, as it was when she was pregnant with her first child.

“My favourite Spice Girls look would be the Goodbye video actually,” the 45-year-old said during an appearance on British talk show This Morning. “I was pregnant with (her oldest child) Brooklyn at the time and I had a pixie haircut, I was wearing a Jil Sander dress, which was super chic, and just really natural, nice makeup.

“I was at that stage of pregnancy when you are a little bit glowy. It was just very natural and I look back at that video and it really does make me smile because I had little Brooklyn in my tummy.”

And the star wasn’t the only Spice Girl who was pregnant while filming the video – Mel B was also expecting her first child, Phoenix Chi.

The British designer shares son Brooklyn, now 20, along with son Romeo, 17, son Cruz, 14, and daughter Harper Seven, 8, with husband David Beckham.

The naturally slim star recently revealed in an interview with Glamour U.K. magazine that becoming a mother has affected her body image, and she makes sure that she eats meals with her kids.

“When you have children, it also puts a lot into perspective. You realise they notice everything,” she explained.
