Britney Spears shopped at Miss Sixty in L.A. on February 12th, and is shown here wearing a pair of Miss Sixty Skinny Zipper Jeans. We actually like the jeans for the most pair, but aren’t crazy about the zippers at the ankle…it’s just too reminiscent of the 80′s for us. Although, we hated skinny jeans when they first came back in style too, maybe we just need some time for the zipper look to grow on us… What do you think?
Last week, the Chicago Sun Times caught up with Victoria Beckham to get her take on fashion, her favorite things and bringing her family to the States. Check it out!
Q. Why did you decide to launch a denim line?
A. I’ve always collected denim and I could never find a pair of jeans that fit me particularly well. As a woman you want something that fits relatively tight on the leg but big enough on the waist. These are incredibly simple and basic — you can wear them with flip-flops or heels.
Q. What about sunglasses?
A. I love sunglasses. If you have the right pair of sunglasses, you can make even the simplest outfit look very cool. I wear them all the time. But it’s mostly because I’m up all night with my children, and they can hide a multitude of sins.
Q. Do you have any favorite items in the line?
A. I like all the big sunglasses. My favorites at the moment are the red aviators. In the jeans, my favorite is the skinny flare — it’s skinny on the leg and then it juts out into a big flare. For me it’s a very progressive style.
Q. What can people expect at the autograph signing?
A. I’m just hoping to meet as many of my fans as I can. I will be there for as long as it takes to sign everything.
Q. What’s playing on your iPod?
A. A better question is what’s NOT playing on my iPod. Cruz [Beckham's 2-year-old son] has hid my iPod and I can’t find it. But normally Mary J. Blige, Keyshia Cole and old Madonna from “The Immaculate Collection.”
Q. Do you have a favorite TV show?
A. “Project Runway” [Beckham just served as a guest judge for the finale] — because it shows people how hard you have to work to be a designer. Also: “Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton,” a Sundance Channel documentary.
Q. What do you think about Chicago?
A. From what I understand, Chicago is a very fashion-conscious place. I also hear it’s very cold.
Q. Have you read anything good lately?
A. I’m not reading anything right now because I’m so busy with the Spice Girls. Normally I’d go see a lot of the shows during Fashion Week, so now I’m on the Internet on style.com a lot checking them out.
Q. How do you compare living in the United States to England?
A. I love America. Myself and David have always said we love how patriotic people are here. It’s a great place to bring up children, and I can’t see us leaving at any point in the near future. It’s our home now.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I have a very European sense of style because that’s where I’m from. My style is relatively simple. When I was designing my denim I wanted jeans that were simple but flattering and a great shape, something that makes a woman look and feel great. A lot of the things I wear are very timeless. I wouldn’t say I’m fashionable. I don’t care if something’s fashionable. If it looks good that’s good enough for me. It’s not always about spending lots of money. You can mix and match things up.
Q: The price point on your dVb jeans is fairly high. Tell me about that.
A: Lots of jeans are that price point. We’re not way above everybody else. The more expensive dVb jeans are the ones with embellishment on the back, the crystals and the handwork. We use the best-quality Japanese denim. These vintage jeans are all hand-finished. [Interrupting herself as son Romeo thrusts a picture of a snowman on her lap] — Thank you, sweetheart, that’s gorgeous! — When you’re doing something of a certain quality it costs more so you have to charge more.
