The Beckhams At The Costume Institute Gala


Here are the Beckhams arriving at the Costume Institute Gala on Monday night in New York.

Now I am going to be honest, as I always am on my site, and tell you guys that I am not crazy about her outfit and here's why.

The dress looks see-through, I feel like I can see her boobs, her face looks too pale and I usually like her hair up but on this occasion, not so much.

Her shoes are fierce though.

Him on the other hand...gorgeous.

Sorry Vic. Hopefully more pictures will change my mind.

Update: Nope, new pictures confirm that I don't like this, especially the make up.

Hi, I really enjoy reading your blog and you should really try reading VB's book. I read her first and it really gave me a good outlook on what she wears and why she wears them. Plus good sarcasm.

Thomas said...

Her makeup is frightening because the rest of her body is so tan and then it's white up top. The dress isn't too bad but the hair doesn't work because it's too severe in this case. Just my thoughts though...

Elizabeth said...

The dress is okay but not loving it, but atrocious makeup and tan. It makes her look old, but she's rocking the shoes

Beth said...

Ooh, I'm loving both their looks. David looks hot as usual. I LOVEEE Victoria's dress and hair, makeups a bit off, but imo she looks fabulous. Thanks for the pics.

Intersting look for VIc. I think she may be trying to pull the retro-sort of 1980 look. Not her best..but prolly not her worst either. Its different. David..well amazing as usual.

I can count how many times I haven't like an Victoria outfit on one hand and sadly this is one of those times.

I do love her hair from what I can see of it and of course her shoes are fab as usual.

Posh 2.0

poshfann said...

you know i LOVEEEE VB's fashion sense and style but i've notice that most of the time at like special occasions she misses the spot.. like the glamour awards, mtv movie awards ( the zebra print was tacky) but in everyday ocassions and real life shes so chic...
that's just my opinion as seen here... the dress is just blahh

Meg said...

Overall the look is ok, the make-up isn't great but I like that she went with the theme (unlike most of the guests) going for the Cruella look. Like always she'll probably look 10x better on film.

Yoshi said...

First, Thx FC for keepin' the blog runnin'....can't imagine how relieve i was. much thx :)

Second, I agree with u about Mrs. Beckham's Outfit. Its doesn't shout, "WOW" but nonetheless, it is still good. Maybe she is trying to pull in another trend? who knows...

ryan said...

someone call the fire department because these two are about to start a fire. WOO. Stunning

Diella said...

Is it just me or does anyone keep thinking Cruella Deville? I usually love her outfits but this one was a bit of a miss and I know she doesn't smile in public but I don't know why she looks downright evil in these. Love the shoes though.

isy said...

i think the dress looks gorgeous from the back view. but not so from front

jenny said...

her makeup makes her look much older and more severe..i feel kind of let down because i was really looking forward to seeing their outfits at this event..db looking hot as usual..glad the beard's gone down a notch

chikk said...

sorry to say but posh just looks bad.. the make up and dress just dont match here... but her hair and shoes are fab..
i looked through pics of others celebs from the gala and even eva longoria managed to look better and ziyi zhang ( also armani's guest) wore a black dress from your wish list FC.
PS. THANKS FC FOR KEEPING THE BLOG!!!!

chikk said...

forgot to mention David looks gorgeous and sexy as usual :D

jonelle said...

fc: i meant to post the other day to tell you how much i enjoy visiting your blog. as with open forums, it's unfortunate how some people feel free to express themselves in a classless manner. keep up the good work; your dedication is marvelous and one of my daily guilty pleasures! btw, i *totally* have to declare that i'm SO glad he trimmed the beard. his simple "scruff" is VEH-ry sexy. :)

Tiffany said...

A little to "Dynasty" for my liking...But I must admit the fit is incredible on her, like usual! Not too crazy about the complete ensemble, but b/c its VB, I can accept it:-)

Kudos for the uploads FC!

Forever-Posh said...

She looks like a 007 Assassin and is about to kill someone.

Loveeee IT!

Isabella said...

I think the dress might have worked if the slit was a little lower and a little more to one side…just thinking!....... Love the shoes…


Love your blog FC…thanks

Amber said...

Aaaah that make-up!!!!! I think Poshfann is right, VB does look off on most of the special ocassions. Maybe she tries too hard? The dress is fine, not great, but fine. It's the make-up i hate.

Allie said...

It's a different style of dress and make-up for her. But I do like the hair.

I think it's pretty grown up of her :)

Anonymous said...

David looks hot as, but i like victoria dress, but not make up and hair.!!

Vicky said...

I like the dress, it not something she's worn before and LOVE the shoes but.... Would it kill her to smile just once?!
Her face looks like it's made of stone and she can't move a muscle.
The make-up is wrong, I think it's the lipstick that's doing it.
I'm glad she put away the boobs for one night and showed some leg instead!

cathy said...

Oh my.. ive been waiting for this, honestly, im dissapointing with the make up and the dress.. :( the roland mouret dress is 1000 times better...

tammy said...

hmmm yea i think the entire ensemble just makes her look old--like early 40's-ish :(
i liked her last outfit to the costume gala in 06 though--THAT was fierce!

mary said...

I think dress is beautiful but too look through...can't deside about hair..
Vic has a beautiful face,why does she try to hide it under make up? Too much make up that doen't siut her at all.

wiwi said...

Can you give us the brand of the shoes please??
Thanks !!

Ace Azri said...

i think victoria is just loving the whole costume superhero thing.
so for something this threatical i think it works actually.

Janie said...

She used this same make up look at a fashion show a while ago can't remember which one (Paris?) didn't like it then either, however loved dress/hair up/very elegant/shoes and of course David suits lovely just prefer him without the beard. They both look old and she looks angry?! Thabks for pics F.C.

peach said...

I'm curious - does Vic have a stylist or does she put things together herself?

I agree with whoever said the day to day outfits are much better. There are many appearances when I just don't like the dress.

I've decided I never like red lipstick on her.

I do love her hair up though as I'm bored to tears with the pob. Loving all the leg and those shoes are killer.

Anonymous said...

yup- i agree- not loving this look too much on vb... personally i don't like the upswept hairdo, much prefer her chic bob...by the way i am an avid fan of this blog- LOVE IT!!!!

bat said...

gosh wat happened to her????she looks soooo scary.......loving the heels though.she actually looooks like a grandma in on of the pics!!!!LOL

Cleopatra said...

i agree, she looks like she tried too hard, she really needs to consider smiling, red lipstick doesnt suit her, and there were so many other vintage outfits out there that would have been so much more stylish and cool. this is a bit adams family meets cinderella. not cool. but im sure she'll rebound soon!

wiwi said...

Ok, I found it : The shoes are frome JIMMY CHOO !!!!!!!!!

Michelle said...

I don´t like her make up, and her hair! It mades her too old! Sorry.. I liked the dress, but not like WOOWWW What a dress!

She had other looks that made her lots more beatiful!

Love

Michelle

snowwhite said...

They are fabulous...I love Victoria's style and from these photos I see that she's changing smth...It doesn't matter on good or on bad...it's CHANGE...
lOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEE YOU FAMILY BECKHAM...

GuajinaPosh said...

I don't like the outfit, I waited other thing more.. Armani? But David is really pretty!

Anonymous said...

I really really don't like her make up, she is not that beautiful here!!

Chic Lady said...

Of course I was expecting a WOW...but I quite liked the dress and the hair, just the make-up that is a big NO, NO. I love the shoes and the bag though.
What saved the outfit was herself, pretty as she is she can get away with that.

lovley_posh said...

Who else could wear this outfit and still be Posh rather then VB, after all she is great and i love her sence of fashion.
Plus she got the money!
FC thank you for keeping the blog up to date!! Also FC can you find out what perfume does VB like the most and uses?
Hugs

Alisson said...

I'm in the minority here I guess...I absolutely love her dress, hair and shoes. The makeup, I agree, is a little off but she is looking fierce (for lack of a better word.) They look GREAT together!

Lorrie said...

I absolutely love the dress ..wish i had the figure to wear it..If anything its her makeup and hair!!! Sorry vic, but the makeup makes you look old..and you are so beautiful when you smile, a smile on this occasion would have made the world of difference... Shoes and bag superb...David you look gorgeous..
Thanks for pics FC
xx

Melissa said...

I love the dress, it's gorgeous... the makeup and tan - not so much.

Anonymous said...

Ok, I can say I agree with you. The dress isn't so good, she wears it on a wrong way. Make-up and hair are really bad. I much prefer the look she had with pob. The shoes are beautiful, I want them. But when I look all those things together on her, it kind of classy. Could be just my bad.
David is triple gorgeus- he always is.
Lots of love, and tnx for continueing... Sladja

snowwhite said...

After I saw all of these photos I must say: "All of you must be kidding...she's real chick..."

Colleen said...

I don't mind the dress, I think she works it. I'm trying to figure out what it is about the makeup (because I don't think the red lipstick looks that bad), and I think it's her cheekbones. The way the makeup is swept on her cheekbones looks odd. And I agree with everyone else...her body is waaaaay too tan...she needs to lay off the tanning! I LOVE her hair! I love how she's been wearing it swept up lately! And I totally agree that her shoes are major! Overall, I think she rocks it...she is VB afterall! ;) I was cracking up about everyone saying she looks like Cruella Deville, I never would have seen that, but now that you point it out I def. can! Ahahah! I love this blog! You all are too great.
