Yesterday, Victoria Beckham and her brood made their way through LAX airport.
VB, never one to let the stresses of motherhood get in the way of fashion, managed to balance on sky-high wedges as she carried baby Harper.
Now, have you ever tried walking in wedges? I nearly ended up in ER last summer after I tottered across my dining room in a pair I thought I could walk in. BIG mistake. My ankles are not made for such feats of fashion.
But VB takes it all in her stride. Hair – perfect, baby – immaculate, sons – co-ordinated outfits, lip gloss- in place. How does she do it?
Getting through an airport, in summer, with kids, is about as stressful as life can be. One runs off there, the other is trying to eat candy from a shop, passports are lost, luggage spills open and going through security is the sweatiest of all affairs as we take off shoes and belts and jackets etc. But for stylish VB – no stress. She even stops to talk to fans!
Recently she revealed that she didn’t ever apply make-up when Harper was around as the wee one wants to copy everything Mommy does! If that is the case, Harper is in for a serious love affair with teetering heels and towering wedges. Imagine having access to VB’s wardrobe? *Swoons*.
So while us mere mortals arrive at our destinations frankly ready for ANOTHER holiday, with antsy kids and irritable spouses, in our worn down summer sandals, with matted hair and mascara running - VB glides across the terminal, as if she just stepped out of a salon…
Victoria Beckham – I salute you – and your ridiculous wedges!
