  • "When David and I got to the first shoot we were both standing in our bathrobes, looking at each other and saying, 'Okay, who's going to drop their dressing gown first?' It can be a little intimidating standing half-naked in a studio full of strangers, so it's good to have the support of each other, reassuring and encouraging one another. David is always incredibly supportive of everything I do. I never used to go to the gym before working with Armani – but if you're going to be photographed in your bra and knickers you want to look as good as you can… I still work out every day. I drop the kids at school, and from the school I go to the gym and do the miles on the treadmill. I have worked hard, and if you are going to agree to be photographed in underwear you have to put the hours in, so when you turn up on the day and take off your robe you feel confident that you can do the job. As a 35-year-old mother of three, I'm looking okay." — Victoria Beckham. [The Sun]



Rosemary Black raises an interesting point re: "white trash" (or "poor white trash" as I first heard it.) From what I gather about the term, it originated in the south to differentiate "undesirable" whites from blacks by other, non-"white trash" whites. It is quite a loaded term. Why is it acceptable? Or rather, more accepted?

(I know, I know, this is DB, it's supposed to be mostly light and silly, but...)
