Fashion duo Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss rekindle once-fraught friendship

Style queens Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss have started speaking again as the fashion duo have something new in common.
In fact, Victoria Beckham has been getting house-hunting tips from Kate Moss.
The fashion designer and model are rumoured to have had a fraught relationship in the past and haven't always enjoyed being in each other's company.
That is now a thing of the past, with the two women even swapping information on finding property recently.
"Kate approached Victoria when they were at the same Fashion Week bash, and started chatting amiably," an insider told British newspaper The Mirror.
"Both women decided to let bygones be bygones, and start afresh. Kate gave Victoria her mobile number and invited her down to stay in her Cotswolds [in the UK] home.
"Since then they have been in sporadic contact, and Kate's been encouraging her to get a place in the country where she and her London-based family can chill at weekends."
Victoria and David moved back to their native Britain after David left US soccer team LA Galaxy. They are currently based in London but after selling their Hertfordshire mansion, dubbed Beckingham Palace, are thought to be looking for a new place in the country too.
Earlier this month it was claimed the pair had considered the Cotswolds area, which is a favourite with stars such as Kate and Lily Allen, as they thought it would be a good place to raise their four children.
"David and Victoria are looking to buy two houses. They love Britain and want to base themselves here for the foreseeable future. But as much as they love London and they need to be there for work and the kids' schools, they want somewhere quiet," an insider said.
"They want a weekend, countryside estate where they can chill out and do normal things that normal families do.
"Recently, David has adopted a new hobby, walking, and he loves to do it in the countryside. His idea of a great weekend is a long, countryside stroll."
