PostSubject: Fashion Book : that extra half an inch   Wed Nov 07, 2007 7:20 pm

Victoria grateful to the fans who went to the signing :

The lovely message of "Thank you" Victoria e-mailed to the fans :

Hi all,

Thanks so much for all your support yesterday, I was overwhelmed by how many of you came to my book signing and particularly those that travelled from far afield to meet me. I had also heard that some people had been queuing since 6am which is absolutely amazing and is much appreciated. You all made the day very special for me, I hope you enjoy the book and have as much fun reading it as I had writing it.

Love,

Victoria
xx

    A lucky fan met Posh at shopping & had her book signed :



    That Extra Half An Inch Outsells The Da Vinci Code :

    Quote :
    Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham was thrilled to discover her fashion book That Extra Half An Inch: Heels And Everything In Between outsold Dan Brown’s award-winning The Da Vinci Code - even if it was only in Lithuania. Victoria was stunned to find it was so popular in the Baltic nation.

    I mean we only got about two pence (profit) and Lithuania is about as big as that coffee table, isn’t it? But at least we beat The Da Vinci Code."


    Promotions done for the book :

    Jo's very special guest was Victoria Beckham. Victoria gave us fashion advice, told us about her life at home in Spain and we played a changing track for her and David :



    Guest on Radio 2 :



    Screen caps from the GMTV interview Victoria did with Fiona Phillips where she talks about her favorite outfits of the past year, doing some retail therapy, and what happened the moment David lost the England captaincy :

    Screen caps I made from the other part of the GMTV interview. And for people who are interested, it was filmed on october 11th, oh and her dress is Stella McCartney.

    Description : GMTV, ITV1 Fiona Phillips is in Madrid interviewing Victoria Beckham while they are shopping. They are talking about fashion but also about growing old, Victoria is not worried, she is looking forward to grow old with David.















    Some bigger screen caps :





    Screen caps from the Interview she did with Johnny Vaughn :

    Finally Exclamation I'm so happy!!! Nothing new, but it's great to have these pictures not in my computer, but in the mag))) It says that we (in Russia) can buy her book from amazon.com, I'm going to order it now, because I think there is no point in waiting it in our shops ...






    Extracts from That Extra Half An Inch :

    A sneak peek from "That Extra Half an Inch," Victoria Beckham's style guide published in Britain last year. Plans are underway for a U.S. release. But for now, put up your "Party Feet" and listen up.

    --

    Looking effortless is actually fashion code for "this involved lots of thought" and it's a tragic truth that this generally is the best strategy.

    --

    However you're built, be mindful of the rule that if you get your boobs out, put your legs away and vice versa. I guarantee you will look better and feel a lot more confident and comfortable.

    --

    The most useful (shoe) you can possibly own is a pair of tan high-heeled shoes, with either pointed toe or open toe. Not only do they elongate your leg, because it looks as if you're not wearing shoes at all, but they will go with pretty much any outfit and dress it up.

    --

    I am a real high-heels girl….[and] the price of wearing high heels is a painful one. But you can now buy Party Feet by Scholl, which act like invisible pillows beneath the balls of your feet.

    --

    Make sure [cropped trousers] end about three-quarters of the way down your calf, just at the point where it starts to narrow towards your ankle. This is the most flattering cut-off point on your leg: any higher and it ends at the widest part of your calf, and your legs will look like sausages, any lower and it will just look like you shrunk your trousers in the wash.

    --

    I always make sure my jeans have a bit of stretch to them (but not too much that they bag), are narrow around the leg and give shape to the bottom instead of squashing it down. If you're quite curvy with hips and a bum, Miss Sixty is the label you want. Whereas if you have more of a straight up and down build, go for Habitual, Grass Los Angeles or Acne.

    --

    The most important thing to remember if you're wearing a dress that won't let you wear a bra, such as one with a low back or, in particular, a deep-plunge front, is to make sure you have lots of toupee tape to keep everything in place. Don't bother with [nipple tape] … go to a proper wig shop and get the real stuff as it's much tougher and nothing will go anywhere when you've got that on. Word of warning though: be careful when you take it off that you don't rip a nipple off too!

    --

    One of the things Geri [Halliwell] taught me when we were in the Spice Girls was that just before you get out of the shower, you should turn the temperature down and get a blast of freezing-cold water. It makes your skin look really taut and smooth too and is great for the circulation, but it is not very pleasant, I have to say.

    --

    Personally, I won't go anywhere without my hair straighteners, my Mason Pearson hairbrush, my rollers and hairpins, a small makeup bag, toothbrush and toothpaste, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream and eye cream…. If I'm going for a week, I'll bring three pairs of jeans. Then I try to stick to the formula of bringing something casual (plain T-shirt), something a bit more rock 'n' roll (vintage T-shirts and minidresses or miniskirts), something classic (nice V-necks, a pencil skirt and a plain dress) and then something a bit more out there for some fun. For example … a pair of leather chaps that I took to L.A. last year.

    --

    I just throw on the Chanel sunglasses, which really do, as the fashion magazines say, hide a multitude of sins.

    Quotes from TEHAI :

    Victoria on what it takes to look fabulous like her: "Whether you've got £20 to spend in Top Shop or £2,000 to spend at Gucci, looking good isn't about money, it's about style - and style never goes out of fashion."

    Victoria on who she credits as her style icon: "To my mum - my first fashion guru who taught me how to sew, showed me how clothes should fit and told me never to wear horizontal stripes and never to eat beetroot because it stains. Most importantly she taught me how to enjoy being a girl."

    Victoria on wearing skinny jeans and flat shoes: "....you end up looking like a golf club."

    Victoria on wedges: "Some wedges look great but you can look like your feet are encased in cement."
