Naturally, this is transparently (to me, I'm not sure the rest of the mostly male football world has put deux et deux together) orchestrated entirely to get the good lady Victoria's eponymous fashion line shown in Paris instead of New York, and the moment Becks announced his retirement from the LA Galaxy, I told Hot Latin Boy that he'd be going to PSG for this exact reason.
I'm quite fond of them as a pair and Little Davey Becks would be just another Once Great without her. I admire a woman with business sense to match her ambition, and I not-so-secretly cheered when she debuted as an entirely capable designer with a clear voice, albeit a limited scope. Plus anyone THAT slim who can carry a Birkin THAT big --she generally prefers ones larger than mine, and mine completely empty still weighs several pounds-- is made of some pretty stern stuff.
And of course she was the funniest in Spice World.
If you have never availed yourself of the myriad camp pleasures of Spice World: The Spice World Movie, let me suggest you do so at the earliest possible moment.
Aside from the irrepressible and occasionally really very funny Mesdemoiselles Spice, the supporting cast includes such luminaries as:
- Stephen Fry
- Hugh Laurie
- Jennifer Saunders
- Alan Cumming (who does the main comedic heavy lifting...in a chest rug)
- Richard E. Grant
- Richard Briers
- Bob Hoskins
Plus various members of Kids in the Hall, Norm from Cheers, Elvis Costello, Elton John, Meat Loaf (as the girls' long-suffering bus driver) and whole passel of BBC recognizables including the delightful Llewella Gideon --better known as Edina Monsoon's Bitch Nurse--who picks up the thermometer once again.
