Charming, friendly and oh-so-beautiful. That sums up Victoria Beckham perfectly in the eyes of her fans and guests when she was in Singapore this week.
The New Paper reports that the 40-year-old brought her fashion A-game to town when she gave invited guests a look at her fashion collections at the ArtScience Museum last Saturday and On Pedder at Scotts Square yesterday.
But even though the English fashion designer, former Spice Girl, wife of retired soccer star David Beckham and mum of four was somewhat elusive and media access to her was limited to only a few fashion-related publications and VIPs, we managed to catch glimpses of her during her stay here, through chance sightings as well as her flurry of tweets and Instagram posts.
Here are some things The New Paper learnt about the style icon during her Singapore sojourn.
1 SHE’S VERY MATERNAL
When some 100 fans were clamouring for her attention at On Pedder, she smiled for them, posed for selfies, signed a few books or pieces of paper before reaching out for eight-month-old Naomi Ho.
She bundled Naomi into her arms and gave the adorable baby a peck on her cheek, to “oohs” and “ahhs” from onlookers. Needless to say, Naomi’s mother, Madam Kimberley Kee, was overjoyed.
Later, when Beckham introduced her guests to her new accessories collection and spoke before them, she could not resist a mention of her family.
According to the executive director of local pop culture site Popspoken, Skii Chung, 24, when asked of her biggest life achievement, Beckham said “her kids... then David”. “She said kids first because to her, David and her children are one.”
2 SHE CAN’T RESIST SHOPPING FOR OTHER BRANDS
Beckham and her entourage were spotted around noon on Monday enjoying some retail therapy at Ion Orchard. While it is unclear what the total damages were at the end of the day, she was seen carrying a paper bag from Miu Miu.
3 SHE’S A VICTIM OF FASHION MISHAPS
An accidental tear on a dress? A broken zip? Even the ever-flawless Beckham can relate.
She took to Instagram last Sunday to post a photo of her “broken top” — with a clear view of her sizeable cleavage.
She captioned the photo: “Where is a seamstress when u need one?”
It also seemed like Beckham was having a hard time taming her mane in our humid weather, as several of her tweets include the hashtag #fightthefrizz, while commenting on how “hot” it is in Singapore.
