Okay people, we already know that Posh & Becks are a very odd couple; after all, he looks so healthy most of the time, being an athlete and all, and she looks like - well, let's just say, she has brought new meaning to the term "well-preserved", seemingly existing on a diet of pickle juice and lemons (if her usual expression is any indication), which also has the power to tan your hide to a burnished sheen in the process. His fashion sense is as metrosexual as it gets, but never effeminate (though the rumor mill is always swirling around the question of his actual "preferences" like it does with any pretty boy), while hers is simply bizarre most of the time. To wit:
Sometime I think she just opens up her copy of Alice In Wonderland every morning in order to decide what to wear. One really wonders what keeps these two crazy kids together.
Recently some light was shed on the subject via the appearance (or should I say apparition?) of Posh at a public event dressed in this:
I think I saw her shrug is actually shrugging in bewilderment.
Now, I am as open-minded as the next person when it comes to fashion, but when she got the invitation, surely it mentioned that it was in fact a PUBLIC appearance? This is not only boudoir attire, but extremely naughty as well. (Not that there is anything wrong with that.) The shocking part is how hard-edged she looks, and I suddenly realized - omigod, Posh is the world's worst beard! The job of the beard, as I understand it, is to maintain a convincing enough fiction that you and your spouse/partner are both straight, and to quell any rumors to the contrary. This is NOT helping, as she seems to have come out to the world as a very kinky girl who is auditioning for a spot on The L Word just in case this woman leaves the show and the producers start looking for someone else to play the butch girl role. Last year, she also wore this getup:
I didn't get it back then, but I am a little slow on the uptake sometimes. Way to keep a lid on those whispers about Becks, dearie! I guess you are co-beards now. (Is that even a word? Well, it is now.) The sad part is, I don't think anyone would care if they both dropped the act. They are both famous and powerful enough to survive a media frenzy - they live in one most of the time anyway.
