Victoria Beckham Poses in 'Too Posh to Wash' Apron and More For Her Vogue UK Shoot

Posted on

When we picture Victoria Beckham, we picture a cool, reserved brunette, impeccably dressed without a hair out of place. And that was exactly the image Vogue UK wanted to subvert for the designer’s August cover story. Fashion director Lucinda Chambers narrated the shoot for a fun behind-the-scenes video that shows the star as you’ve never seen her before.

“We want to try and do something that I haven’t seen her do before,” Chambers says. “What I really want to do with her is to kind of rough her up a little bit. I’m hoping for her to leap around in the rhododendrons with a gardening trough … just sort of mess around a little bit.”

Beckham gamely dons gardening gloves and a scarecrow-inspired hat (not to mention tons of haute fashion) as she gets snapped doing menial chores in the rain. But it doesn’t faze her a bit. “I’m never afraid to try something different when I’m working with the best people,” she says. “Lucinda obviously is so chic and so sophisticated, and I really want to be her. Immediately.”

That charm apparently worked, as Beckham does don the cheeky “Too posh to wash” apron Chambers had made up for her over a magnificent off-the-shoulder gown and gets right down to business. Watch the whole video and tell us: Was it fun to see Beckham get a little playful? Which look do you love best?
