Overheard: Victoria Beckham and Marc Jacobs talk fashion

Marc Jacobs & Victoria Beckham 

If there's one pair of fashionable friends we've always wanted to eavesdrop on, it's Victoria Beckham and Marc Jacobs. ‘Oh Marc, what does M.I.A. have on me?' we'd always thought she might have mused about her ad campaign rival, for example. ‘I can do "street" too, you know.' Turns out, we'll soon find out. The pair have got together for an informal chat for an American magazine published next week but, unsurprisingly, some of the choice quotes have leaked. ‘They've done this horrible thing, Victoria,' Jacobs apparently says of his nude photo shoot in Harper's Bazaar. ‘They've airbrushed me, so I look like a Ken doll.' Victoria, meanwhile, laments her oh-so difficult design journey: ‘The problem is, when you are well-known in the tabloids, and you're trying to break into a new industry, it makes it very difficult, because people get preconceptions, and so everybody thinks that I am a miserable bitch who goes shopping every day.' But as best friends should, Marc reassures her. ‘The customer is the woman who wants a great dress. She's not concerned with what a critic thinks, or what a gossip column says about my boyfriend.' Oh, guess that rules us out then.... [WWD]
