Galaxy Draw As Donovan Scores Twice

The LA Galaxy drew last night, ending their losing streak.

Landon Donovan scored two goals for the LA Galaxy, in what for him another impressive night.

The goals put him at 16th for the season, so that makes 80th of his career.

This was David Beckham's first time playing New England, as he was injured last time the two teams played.

In other news Fabio Capello names his England squad today and there have been calls for David Beckham to be dropped.

Capello says he will assess Beckham's busy cross-Atlantic schedule with LA Galaxy and fitness before deciding on his involvement against Andorra and Croatia.

"No one is untouchable. Not Beckham, the captain or the vice-captain," noted Capello.

"Against the Czechs, Beckham ran as much as the other players, maybe a little bit more. Sometimes Beckham is very dangerous but against the Czech Republic he did not do anything amazing."

"I will look at all the travel. I check everything. The last match was a friendly game, the next one is qualification for the World Cup so I will look at his schedule. He has travelled a lot. It is interesting."

It sounds like he is already made up his mind, and my guess is he will drop David.

Victoria Beckham Talks To The Sunday Mirror

The Sunday Mirror have an exclusive interview with Victoria Beckham. Here it is:

I can't even think about another baby.. our three boys take up so much of my time. And, no, we won't adopt.. though I admire people who do

While Brand Beckham may be growing - Victoria's waistline won't be for a while.

As the former Spice Girl signed copies of her new scent Signature at a posh department store, she told me her baby plans are on hold.

Although Victoria and David have spoken about wanting a girl to add to their brood of sons - Brooklyn, nine, five-year-old Romeo, and Cruz, three, the only tantrums the singer wants to deal with right now are the ones in the fashion world.

Looking stunning in a dazzling white Giambattista Valli shift dress with a fluffy white panel on the back, Victoria, revealed: "I can't even think about having another baby right now. The boys take up so much of my time."

"They're in England with me at the moment, and thank goodness I've got my mum and my dad to look after them for a bit."

"Life is busy in LA because Brooklyn's got football, Romeo's got gymnastics and Cruz has break-dancing. Plus they have school commitments. They start school again next week so we all have to go uniform shopping now."

As I chatted to Victoria in Harvey Nichols, Manchester, I asked whether she would consider following in the footsteps of Madonna and Angelina Jolie - who have adopted babies .

But she said: "We really respect people who go through adoption, but it's not something we have considered as we have our hands full with the three children we do have!" Victoria is gearing up for a new assault on the clothing industry with her own very posh range of couture gowns during New York Fashion Week."

In two weeks, she will take a new range of full-length dresses to a hotel suite in New York and put on a show for editors of glossy magazines like Vogue and Harper's Bazaar.

She explained: "They're very sexy dresses. Full-length frocks and bold colours - stuff that makes women feel good."

"I'm just showing it to a collection of magazine journalists and boutique retailers because I want to start off small and see what the reaction is. I really hope people will like it."

Victoria's DVB Style range of jeans is sold in more than 100 retailers in the US and the UK.

Sales of her sunglasses and handbags are also booming.

VIDEO: Inside Harvey Nichols As Victoria Beckham Meets Her Fans

Here is another video that was shown on Granada TV.

It starts off with Victoria Beckham arriving at Harvey Nichols, then her meeting her fans.

It is a really cute video as you see and hear her talking to fans.

David Beckham Mentors Kids For Adidas

In the UK Adidas have been showing a series of ads featuring David Beckham.

You can watch his video on featuring David giving a group of kids tips on taking free-kicks.

At the very end is a cute clip, after Patrick Veira's sketch, were David asks a kid who his favourite player is.

The kid says "Steven Gerrard".

After a long pause David says "Really....?" to which the kid says "Yeah" after another pause David says "OK..." in a cute disappointed voice.

LOL. David is a very good actor.


David and Victoria Beckham - The Making of Signature Fragrance Ad

Here is a cute video of the behind the scenes look at Victoria and David Beckham fragrance ad.

And here is the actual ad again.

I don't know which I prefer.

Who Wore Giambattista Valli Better?

Actress Jennifer Morrison was the first to wear this Giambattista Valli jumpsuit in December 2007 when she arrived at the Movies Rock event in LA.

Victoria Beckham wore the same jumpsuit this week when she went out to dinner with friends in Manchester.

I much prefer the way Victoria has modified the jumpsuit, so it shows off her neckline, and is more off the shoulder.

When Claire Met Victoria Beckham

Claire, from Manchester was another lucky Victoria Beckham fan who got to meet her a Harvey Nichols yesterday.

Claire's pictures of her and Victoria are amazing, and I would like to thank Claire a lot for sharing her pictures with us.

Claire very much enjoyed her meeting with our favourite girl. Here is what she said:

"Everyone really was wowed by how great she looked! I thanked her for coming to manchester and she said she loves Manchester and misses it. Then she asked if I'd like I photo which of course I said yes!

She was more than happy to sign all kinds of things for fans even thought the PA people said she wouldn't!"

I am so jealous.

When Amy Met Victoria Beckham

The very fashionable Amy from Manchester Fashion met Victoria yesterday at her Harvey Nichols signing yesterday.

Love what you are wearing girl.

Thanks for the photo, you both look great.

Victoria Beckham: "My Love For Manchester"

Prior to her appearance at Harvey Nichols in Manchester, Victoria Beckham spoke to local paper The Manchester Evening News were she revealed how she and husband David made a nostalgic return to their old haunts in Manchester - including their first home in Worsley - during the Spice Girls last tour.

She also spoke about life in LA and how she misses the Trafford Centre....

Victoria Beckham lets out a husky giggle. A sharp contrast to the sulky pout that many visualise her with. Posh is pondering the idea that her multi-million pound Los Angeles mansion has become something of a tourist attraction.

The official first stop, no less, on those Stars and Their Homes tours of the Hollywood Hills.

"You weren't one of those people outside my house were you?" she demands in a mock interrogatory tone when I tell her I have recently returned from a trip to L.A.

"Every time I come out of the drive in my car they all wave like we're characters out of Disney."

On my recent trip to Hollywood Boulevard, the Beckham name was on everyone's lips. From the street-side hustlers hoping to whisk you off on a tour to their house - to the taxi driver who took us back to the airport.

"I hear that Beckham's a real nice guy," he told us. "His son plays little league with my grandson and he just comes along like an ordinary dad, signing a few autographs for all the folks."

Proof indeed that the Beckham brand has been successfully exported Stateside.

"We really like it there, we've been made to feel really welcome," says Victoria, seemingly genuinely touched to hear such glowing feedback. "The kids are very happy at school, the weather is great and we have nice friends there."

"Tom Cruise is a really nice guy, all our kids hang out together and we live quite close," she says dismissing any notion of a fall-out with Tom's actress wife Katie Holmes.

"They are very positive the Americans," she adds. "We get involved with everything our kids do and I think that shows. We're very happy with the way they have taken to us. Things just get better and better for me."

Picturing life in their £11m Californian mansion, it's easy to imagine a fairytale existence.

The reality, says Victoria, is that far from lazing by the pool, she has been working as hard as ever, spearheading an ever-increasing range of products - from her DVB jeans range to a best-selling perfume.

And now she's back on the scene, pushing the latest product from Brand Beckham, a new perfume and men's fragrance - Signature For Her and For Him.

"There are things coming out now that I have been working on for years and years, I have really put in the groundwork," she says.

"This is why I am different to a lot of so-called celebrities, if you like, when it comes to fragrances."

"They don't have the involvement I have - I've been working on them for the last five years. I designed the bottles and the packaging. I'm very hands on - this is a business I own not just something I am putting my name on and I'm a bit of a control freak."

In today's WAG-obsessed culture, it is easy to lose sight of the former Spice Girl and see her as just another glamorous footballer's wife.

But of course she was the bigger star when she got engaged to the then fop-haired Manchester United midfielder David.

With naked ambition she transformed them from just another celebrity couple into the ultimate brand they are today. And, talking to her, there is no doubt that behind that immaculately groomed celebrity exterior lies a sharp business brain.

"Career-wise the opportunities and success I have had this year are outstanding, my brand is going from strength to strength," says the 34-year-old mum of three. "In America there are offers and opportunities in fashion."

"There are always people out there waiting for us fail," she adds, when asked if she's ever down-hearted by the negative press she receives. "But I don't let that deter me. I am such a perfectionist and am good at what I do."

Yet for all her attention to her career Victoria insists that family life with sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz is her top priority.

"I don't like to spend too long away from David and the kids. As soon as I get back to LA the kids have got to get their school uniforms - that's my next clothing project," she laughs. "I'm back to doing school runs. It's been nice to have a bit of a break but the school uniforms have to come first."

Self-deprecating and disarmingly chatty, the Victoria Beckham I speak to bears little resemblance to the moody, petulant star she is often portrayed as.

And her enthusiasm for the city where she met her husband is clear as she prepares to wow the inevitable crowds tomorrow.

"I'm very excited about coming back to Manchester, of course it's where I met David. And it's where we had our first house."

"In fact," she adds, conspiratorially. "When we were last in Manchester for the Spice Girls gig David and I drove back to that house in Hazelhurst Road (Worsley) to have a look. There are such fond memories for us - of the Trafford Centre and all that kind of thing. I know David misses Manchester as well and still keeps in touch with everyone."

"We always used to go off to the Trafford Centre with Brooklyn in his buggy."

That Posh's memories of Manchester should be defined by the shops should come as no surprise from a woman who says "I loved fashion way before music."

Although, it seems, she will always be proud of the Manchester part of her history.

"It was really fantastic," she says of the thunderous cheers that greeted her arrival on the M.E.N. Arena stage during the recent Spice Girls reunion tour.

"I was amazed - I didn't know how people were going to react to me. It was just phenomenal when I came out and got that reaction - it made me cry."

A reaction made even more amazing because it was shared with one of her new Hollywood pals - Eva Longoria who jetted in to Manchester to watch the show.

"Eva was sweet, she wanted to see the show in America but missed it."

"She was excited to come to Manchester - she loved it and we went out for some drinks afterwards."

Perhaps with that ringing endorsement we will see Mr and Mrs Beckham popping back to our fair city for many more years to come.

....I LOVED this interview. It was really refreshing as she did not recycle any of her usual quotes, so I felt I was learning something new about her.

Her stunning white sheath dress, which appears to have wings, is again from Giambattista Valli, but this time his Fall 2008 collection.

I love this. Fans can be so creative.
