If rumours are to be believed, Victoria Beckham may be about to grace the cover of US Vogue, sans band mates, for the first time.
The (admittedly not entirely reputable) Daily Star quotes US sources as saying, "Posh is in talks about an upcoming cover and a feature where she'll talk about leaving Los Angeles, David's move to Paris and her new daughter. It's a big deal, and she wants it. Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour enjoys making people work for it."
And work for it she has. After a brief reunion with her fellow Spice Girls at last year's Olympics closing ceremony, VB has successfully managed to distance herself from the pop group, choosing not to appear with them on numerous occasions to promote their musical, Viva Forever! She's now considered one of the world's biggest designers, has recently launched an e-tail site, won the Designer of the Year Awards at the British Fashion Awards, and been named one of the 100 most powerful women in Britain.
Strictly speaking, it wouldn't be her debut US Vogue cover - she appeared with her bandmates on the January 1998 issue (looking gloomy), although Wintour has since said she's "not terribly proud" of it (awkward) - but it would be her first solo cover. The designer has also previously appeared on the cover of British Vogue twice, as well as on the Russian, German, Indian and Turkish editions.
It's reported that she'll wear her own designs on the cover, possibly making her appearance unique - we're not sure of any other designer, bar the Olsen twins, who have covered the fashion bible, let alone covered it wearing their own designs.
