Well, you can’t say Victoria Beckham never tried to spice up people’s lives with unexpected—and inexpensive—fashion advice.
Recently taking to the tree-lined streets in Central Park, a virtual Beckham and Vanity Fair‘s Derek Blasberg made some style enthusiasts very, very happy with their impromptu $2 advice booth. Blasberg had the laborious task of carrying around a makeshift table with Beckham beaming in from somewhere in the world on an iPad. Nonetheless, Beckham’s fans were elated by her presence, which began with a gaggle of Indiana high school girls keen on getting intel about stand-out graduation dresses.
“Something that just makes you feel super comfortable and confident and something that you feel really, really good in,” Beckham advised, before answering a very hot, very controversial topic in the fashion community: Is it okay to wear white after Labor Day? For her, it’s a big fat yes. “I think rules are there to be broken,” she explained. “The sun is still shining, so you better wear it whilst you can.”
As for other questions that might benefit a larger populace, Beckham is very pro a certain hairstyle for men (“I like the man bun … I like it back in a bun”) and her quintessential fall staples are easier done than said. “I think you gotta have a good coat. It sounds obvious, but in New York it gets so cold. A really good boot as well.” She also advised on how easy it is to make gym clothes chic, even if you’re not purposely thinking about it. “The good thing about gym clothes is that you can really see your body. You can be comfortable. And when you’re comfortable, you appear confident,” she explained. “I think that’s sexy. I do the school run virtually every day in my work-out clothes.”
Watch all of her fashion witticisms unfold in real time below. You won’t regret it.
