Victoria Beckham Labeled A Fraud

Fashion Label Exposed As Knock Off

December 8. 2008

Victoria Beckham

The Daily Mail has branded Victoria Beckham a fraud over her fashion label. Citing the fact she can’t draw, when most real designers do their own sketches and another little tidbit...her designs are suspiciously similar to those of Roland Mouret, the former Spice Girl has been left with egg on her face (rather than in her mouth).

In viewing the comparative photos the Daily Mail posted online, I must agree, it appears all she did was change the colors of Mouret's dresses, removed a collar there and added a pocket here.

Talking about her designs, Victoria, 34, said: ‘I really had to prove myself ... But now I feel like I am competing in an arena where I belong. I was so nervous because this has been a lifetime in the making.’

'The fact that Roland has been so hands-on has been kept a tightly guarded secret until now. We have all been convinced that Roland and Victoria must be in some kind of a business arrangement.’ A spokesman at 19, the management firm run by former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller – who represents both Victoria and Mouret – was last night unable to confirm whether Mouret has been paid for his assistance…
