Behind the scenes of a Posh shoot for Vogue
Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Media features here.
I watched this earlier today and was umming about putting it on the blog. In many ways it’s just a sychophanting PR exercise for Victoria Beckham who has clearly worked out the exact angle of her head for the entire interview AND WILL NOT MOVE IT!, and is coming out with all kinds of rubbish about empowering women with her clothes, whilst plugging her new London store
On the other hand, I did find it quite interesting to see to what nth of a degree the shoot process is now managed, and how utterly impossible an ideal it is to see these women in magazines, made beautiful by literally dozens of creative people – and that’s even before the art director starts photoshopping. (I have a couple of great gossipy stories of celebs we photoshopped on glossy mags back in the day but you’ll have to get me drunk first!). In many ways, knowing that these images are so heavily manufactured and directed is the real female empowerment.
What do you think?
