Victoria insists thatunlike some celebs with namesake labelsshe was very much involved, even traveling to the factory in Winnipeg, Manitoba, to supervise the production of her jeans. "I'm a real consumer, and I think I know how real women want to look," she says. She even had her new friend Jennifer Lopez road test a pair to make sure they suited curvier girls.
Lopez and her husband, Marc Anthony, are just two of the Beckhams' new Hollywood friends. They've also become close with Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, though David insists that his family will not be Scientology's next celebrity converts. "Tom has never even talked to us about it, much less tried to push it on us," he says. Between their high-profile chums and their sprawling Beverly Hills home, it certainly seems that the Beckhams will fit right in to Los Angeles. In June Victoria even had that quintessential L.A. experience of receiving a traffic ticket. She was pulled over for making an illegal turn and ordered to apply for a California driver's license. The episode, of course, was happily documented by the reality show's cameras. "It was all a bit embarrassing," a member of the show's crew was reported as saying. "But it will make great material." Victoria was not exactly shaken by her run-in with the cops. "The policeman was gorgeous," she coos. "And he loved my shoes."
