We are loving Victoria Beckham on the

Quintessentially English and Purely Traditional.

Inside she is up a ladder
cutting Rhododendron's with her secateurs
in a huge Lanvin tweed suit,
and Louboutin boots accompanied by Lucinda's dog Digby
Coat Salvatore Ferragamo
Dress Elie Saab

In another picture she is holding a rhubarb leaf over
her head in a Beatrix Potter kind of way (above),
 or pushing a wheelbarrow full of poetic blue
hydrangeas (below) like she really has somewhere to go.

Raincoat Victoria Beckham
Dress Elie Saab
Leather Boots Marni

Tweed Hat to order Stephen Jones, Sweater Max Mara
Cashmere Socks
Wellies Hunter

This shot (above) reminds us of a Bruce Weber photograph.
Here Victoria sits in a crumpled hat, baggy tweedy sweater
and Hunter wellies under a magnolia tree, among the bluebells
desultorily holding a bunch of tea roses looking
into middle distance ... pure British style.

Make up is by Val Garland (below)

and hair by Tina Outen who has worked with Victoria Beckham 
several times. This her first Vogue Cover.

Tina spoke to
and explained how she needed an ease to the look
and how everything evolved very naturally.
Tina styled Victoria's hair and then broke the 
'style down with an olive oil cream 
and with water -undoing the "do". It's a sexy, slept-in look.
It probably took less than a minute, it was just a matter 
of putting it up, pinning it and playing around with it to 
make it look right for her face. 
 The hair for the other cover 
was literally created by her getting dressed, 
getting her hair caught in the coat and us pulling pieces 
out and giving it a bit of a finish." 

Until next time J Xx
