Victoria Beckham Is The Fifties Queen in Prada Pants For Harper’s Bazaar’s Jubilee Issue

Bunting at the ready, Queen Victoria (Beckham, that is) is ready to rule. We've been chatting about the designer a lot this week - not only did she chop off her hair, she dressed the world's biggest upcoming star Jennifer Lawrence for the Madrid premiere of 'The Hunger Games'. And today, we see VB in a Fifties-style shoot for Harper’s Bazaar that looks raaather familiar...

Remember Posh's gorgeous shoot for Madame Figaro earlier this month? Y'know, the one with that salmon pink Prada bodysuit with the rose embellishments on the waist? Well, Lady Becks has returned to the same look for this latest spread. Yes, she's back in more of Prada's Spring Summer 2012 wares for the Jubilee issue and her pout is poutier than ever.

Captured by fashion photographer Camilla Akrans – who has shot campaigns for BCBG Max Azria to Diane Von Furstenberg – Vic wears a strapless belted one-piece reminiscent of the classic retro beachwear that Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe made famous. And in another, she shows off her DB and Hebrew script tattoo that translates to ‘together forever, eternally’ tattoos while attired in a metallic emerald green low line bra and Fifties-esque pants.

VB is known for wearing her own designs (she prefers to wear them to feel more at one with her customer, appazza) but Prada also holds a special place in her heart. ‘Prada, I'm absolutely blown away,' she says. 'Everything [Miuccia] does is genius. I've never met her, but everything she does - not just the hair, the make-up, the shows - everything about the brand impresses me.’ 

Check out more interview highlights here...

On the problem of designing while expecting Harper Seven:
"We always joke that we have this fabulously gorgeous 17-year-old model who is six-foot-whatever and then I say 'OK, I'm going to put it on. I stand for the general public here.' It's how I work. I found it really difficult when I was pregnant and I couldn't do that. It's part of the process - I'll stand here in my knickers and start draping fabric over myself. It was very hard when I didn't have my body."

On who she'd most like to be trapped in a lift with:
"I'm quite obsessed with Tilda Swinton. I find her intriguing, very stylish, she clearly understands fashion."

On David Beckham's underwear line for H&M:
"David created it, we own it and H&M does the distribution. It makes sense business-wise and it has integrity, because David has designed it all himself."

Jane Marilyn (Thu Mar 29 14:11:35 BST 2012): Not 50s I'm afraid... too much fake tan and nude lipstick, not enough curves. Marilyn and Elizabeth would never have looked like this. Looks more 60s to us!
Catherine Louise Sowerby (Mon Apr 23 21:32:29 BST 2012): she looks amazing, airbrushing or not!
