My Phone Convo with Victoria Beckham
Say what you will about the Marc Jacobs T-shirt, the slashedtothere Versace and her friendship with the Cruises. (And don't even THINK about slagging on her haircut because you KNOW you asked your hairdresser to copy it!). I spent 15 minutes on the phone this week with Victoria Beckham and here's what I have to say about her: nice, nice, nice, nice, nice, nice, nice, nice, nice. Another word? Sweet. Add to that smart, articulate and passionate about what she does. And I was mightily impressed that she had her kids with her and they weren't stuck with some army of caregivers back home. OK, so she was a bit rehearsed, but bottom line, she did not have to be so nice to me on the phone, and I was really, really impressed. Actually, everyone I dealt with on her publicity team was just as nice and professional as could be. And as a freelance journo given just 15 minutes to get the money quote for what they knew would be a short story, that felt, well, pretty nice.
