2.0 von 5 Sternen Cava - low average 10. Januar 2010
Von Christina
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Honestly I was rather disappointed from this book. The writing style from La Beckham (oh wonder) was not really enjoyable and she did not really come up with new tips and tricks for an average stylish girl (only if you have never heard from trench, poncho and co!) Therefore, I would say "It s not worth the price"

5.0 von 5 Sternen my fashion bible! 19. Dezember 2006
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I just couldnt stop!! i loved reading this book! Not only has Vitoria Beckham a great sense for fashion and knows tons of tips, tricks and how to present herself in public, she is also a fashionable mom, which made me, a young mom myself, read this book with even more pleasure.

Besides loads of tips on fashion and where you can get the best items (high end And high street), she writes about her teenage years (the gucci school bag :), working with designers, being a designer herself and

her family in a very lovely and sometimes funny way..

Everyone who loves fashion, should read this!

i loved it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Postively Posh 8. November 2007
Von Theresa Reed - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Better known as "Posh Spice" of the Spice Girls fame, Victoria Beckham has always been recognized worldwide for her chic, stylish look. No matter which role she plays - singing superstar, wife of David Beckham, mummy to three boys, designer - she always manages to look put together and just right. Not an easy feat as any modern woman will tell you.

Well, Ms. Beckham has decided to part with her style secrets in this fun, colorful book to help us average Janes avoid looking "frumpy or mumsy". Whether giving the scoop on jeans and proper fit, beauty care, or dressing for a special occasion, Beckhman manages to keep the tone practical, light and conversational - what you'd expect if your most stylish buddy sat you down and filled you in on the details, from where to buy to what works with what. She generously lists desginers and stores where you can acquire some of the same attire that she favors. The chapters on packing tips and maternity wear are great - surely this will help many of us poor souls be less dowdy when with child or with skies!

Some of the advice is pretty funny ("The first things I will say about dressing for the holidays is to get all images of reindeer jumpers out of your head."), some of it very useful ("When trying on new shoes, do it towards the end of the day when your feet have had a chance to expand."). Whether or not you are a fan of Ms. Beckham, you will certainly appreciate much of her counsel.

There are many lush, striking photos of Victoria looking very "posh" and chic as well as gorgeous line drawings throughout, making the book eye candy for all of us fashion lovers. This is one of my favorite parts of the book.

A couple critiques: some of the lingo is purely British and takes some getting used to (ex: she refers to tank tops as 'vests' which was very confusing for me) and some of the designers/stores she lists are NOT in America, which is only a hindrance if your sole goal is to imitate her style (not my goal). And some of these designer/stores are VERY expensive, making some of her suggesions out of reach for regular folk like myself.

Lastly, she freely utilizes every opportunity to promote her own line of clothing, dVb, a high end line that she subtly implies is one of the most stylish. Although some may find this galling or even annoying, I say bravo for her moxy and industrious spirit - what else would you expect from Posh Spice?

5.0 von 5 Sternen I confess: I loved it. 27. November 2007
Von Kimberley Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I read this book while recuperating from surgery and I have to say it was perfect for taking my mind off my health issues. It's surprising. I didn't expect Victoria Beckham to come off as fun and likeable as she does. Now to the point of the book: Does it offer good fashion advice? Yeah, it does. She's spot on when she disses the kitten heel shoe. Unless you are built like Audrey Hepburn (I'm not)it doesn't do your legs any favors. She's excellent in the makeup chapter and even though I don't wear jeans her jeans chapter contained everything you need to know. I wish everyone would read it before buying a pair. It would cut down on a lot of public ugliness.

The chapter on getting ready for a party was excellent and timely for this season. I liked the chapter on maternity dressing and appreciated the chapter on how to wear hair extensions.

Overall this book made me happy and I plan to keep it and refer to it for years to come.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Shameless self-promotion, but entertaining in a campy way 1. Mai 2008
Von L. Miller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I bought this on a whim to read something girly while my boyfriend was out of town. I love fashion books and thought this would have some useful and fun little tidbits. Not exactly, but not a total waste either.

Victoria Beckham believes her own hype so deeply that it's almost impossible to take her seriously. When the book is not crammed with glam shots of her -- where it's often impossible to see what she's wearing, even though this is a style book -- it is filled with self-promotion in other ways. Every other page of the jeans section is her selling her own jeans line, when she recommends fragrances there's a giant picture of "Intimately Beckham" luring us in. A stupid move, as both of these lines aren't succeeding, and the book seems dated as soon as it's published. Better -- and much classier -- to acknowledge that you have your own lines in a small section, then focus on fashion and style overall. It would also be better if she had used other models to show examples of her style and fashion tips -- maybe a "posh makeover" or something. But this is not that book -- instead, the focus is suffocatingly on her, so much though that it's pretty funny at times. "Oh look at her again! Another pouty face! Long haired victoria! Short haired victoria!"

I think my favorite moment of unintentional hilarity is when victoria pleads with women not to wear bras with padding under tanks or t-shirts. Presumably one should have fake ones put in instead and have them pushed up the way victoria does? And the recommendation never to wear shorts with sneakers is ridiculous when there are fabulous little sneaks out there by John Varvatos for converse. The recommendation for high heels is, in general, myopic. There's nothing the world needs less than tiny women teetering on the edge of stilettos.

She has had an extraordinary career, even though underneath all of the styling she is a pretty ordinary looking person. When you look at her underneath all of the clothes and style she has really cultivated an image for herself -- perhaps her talent is self-invention. She is rigorous about every aspect of her appearance before she leaves the house -- something I wish was true of me.

I will also say that this book is going to be very useful on an upcoming trip to the UK, in terms of navigating high street brands for a little budget shopping.

So i'd say get it if you really like her, or if you have her exact body type and can copy styles directly, or if it's cheap, or if you care about the difference between H and M vs topshop in terms of sunglasses.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Too much fun 20. November 2007
Von Alan M. Hochberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I bought this book as a gift for my wife. (I hope she doesn't see this review before the holidays.) I took a look inside, and I think it's going to be a big hit. Mrs. Beckham has a talent for combining utter sincerity with self-mockery in a way that is completely irresistable. I think it would be impossible to have a bad day while reading this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Light and fun 1. November 2007
Von Lisa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I just love this book. I have the hardcover version, purchased from Amazon UK, so I am not quite sure what the paperback will bring, but I think it's worth a review. I wouldn't say it's a true style manual; rather, it's one woman's love affair with clothes, make-up, and accessories, no matter what the cost, high-end or Land's End. It's written in a very warm, friendly tone, almost as if the two of you went shopping for a day and took a break for lunch. There are really nice illustrations and some fun candid photos of Mrs. Beckham that bring life to the pages. This isn't a book to read if you're looking to put together a wardrobe from scratch; instead, it's something fun to page through if you're stuck in a rut, maybe looking for an idea or two, and wanting to see how much fun it is to be extravagant.
