Posh’s Dorian Gray Moment

Shar Pei Facelift: What Posh and Barnaby can expect: my rescue Shar Pei "Fei Fei" after round one of facelift eye surgery.

So. The highly responsible and sensible former pop star Victoria Beckham, aged 39 and three-quarters,  has bought a Chinese Shar Pei puppy for her children Brooklyn, 14, Romeo 10, Cruz 8 and toddler Harper.

What I really, really want

'I'm 38 by the way,' Victoria Beckham offers, about 10 minutes into our conversation. 'I think I'm the only person in Hollywood who's actually quite honest about how old she is. Everybody else, they get younger and I get older. What's that about?' she laughs. 'I don't have any problem with getting older, I'm much more comfortable in myself and confident. I'm a better person.'

What a girl wants

Launched to a phenomenal start just a season ago, the Victoria line is what the models are wearing as Victoria Beckham runs through the collection at the Four Seasons Hotel. She is in town for the Hong Kong debut of the line.

'Net-a-porter, which is my No1 retailer, had 100 per cent sell-through even before it had gone online,' Beckham says. 'They said it was unprecedented.'

On style, she rules

I love Victoria Beckham's style and was excited when I heard she was designing dresses, but when they came out I was shocked by the prices. So you can imagine how I felt when I heard she had a lower-end line called Victoria. Do you know where I can get it?

Home stretch

I love having visitors from overseas to stay. I love it like I love having tin foil on my dental fillings or sticking my hand in a document shredder.

Why Becks chose land of the freeway

The 405 freeway is a soulless strip of concrete that stretches 118 kilometres from start to finish. It grips the greater Los Angeles area in perpetual gridlock like a claw and, according to the US Department of Transportation, is the most travelled urban highway in the country, carrying 374,000 cars a day.

And then there were five ... this could be the countdown to unveiling Asia's 'Spice Girls'

Depending on who you ask, the Spice Girls phenomenon of the 1990s was either the best or worst thing ever. Well, Hong Kong can make the proud (or shameful) claim that 'the next Spice Girls' may have formed on Monday night at Hitec in Kowloon Bay.

Just because the holidays are over it doesn't mean you have to retire all your party clothes. While fully sequinned and heavily embroidered dresses are a fashion no-no after Christmas, I always find a use for dresses with subtle jewel embellishments, whether it is for a day in the office or an evening out.

Style meter



Adds a splash of colour and Celtic feel to autumn's collections.

Calf-length dresses

Roland Mouret started the trend, and now even Victoria Beckham's first dress collection is based on this super-flattering length.

Pencil skirts

Secretarial chic is making a comeback.

Hollywood West

It's been about a year since the Beckhams and their BlackBerry-toting entourage descended on these shores and I take no glee - well, not much, anyway - in saying that at long last the hype has died down.

And it seems many Los Angelenos are discovering there wasn't that much there to begin with.
