NEW YORK  - Victoria Beckham showed her spring-summer 2013 collection in the gorgeous Astor Hall of the New York Public Library on the Sunday morning of New York Fashion Week. When Beckham launched her collection in 2009, which is owned by both Victoria and David Beckham, as well as Simon Fuller's 19 Entertainment, the fashion industry didn't really take her seriously. But the former Spice Girl quickly gained respect and commercial success for creating luxe ladylike, body-conscious dresses.

NEW YORK --  It wasn't just hunky hubby David Beckham who rousted the fashion pack out of bed early on a Sunday morning. (Though it certainly helped.) Victoria Beckham's collection has evolved into a must-see. The inspiration: This season, Beckham played with new proportions (a longer-line tunic over a long skirt, for example) and a more fluid silhouette, adding pleats and ruffles for a whimsical yet relaxed look. Key pieces: Long and lean coats fastened with a side chain detail.

David Beckham, in China as an ambassador for the sport of soccer, visited Peking University on Sunday and did something considerably less stuffy than one would associate with the word "ambassador. " He hiked the tail of his white button-down shirt out of his pants and showed off the hanzi (Chinese character) tattoo adorning his side. [Los Angeles Times] Meanwhile his wife, fashion designer Victoria Beckham, introduced a redesigned website Tuesday, for the first time allowing consumers to buy directly from the site.

So WHAT if a good man is hard to find? No one seems to be looking anymore. The real search -- as any woman knows -- is for the ultimate and loyal BFF. Recently, Victoria Beckham caused a froth among tabloids and gossip blogs when she celebrated her 34th birthday over dinner with Eva Longoria Parker and Kate Beckinsale. Why didn't she invite Katie Holmes, a nation wondered. The absence of Holmes -- Posh's BFF with matching bob and gargantuan sunglasses for the last year or so -- was widely reported and analyzed and over-analyzed.

IT'S her first time going for drinks at the Chateau Marmont, but she negotiates the dark staircase up to the lobby like a pro, using the kind of sidestep one has to perfect when 4-inch Balenciaga heels are everyday footwear. "Beckham, is it?" the bar hostess asks in a feeble attempt at acting nonchalant. It's no use. There is just no way not to notice Victoria Beckham. She's dressed in a black bandage dress by Herve Leger, her legs tanned the color of an Hermes Birkin.

This post has been corrected. See note at bottom for details. Say it isn't so -- will unrepentant high-heel fashionista Victoria Beckham have to hang up her stilettos because of a possible slipped disc? Will her wearing flats in public represent the end of fashion as we know it? Probably not. The U.K.'s Daily Mail reports online that Beckham's friends are saying the sky-high heels she wore during her recent pregnancy may have caused a back injury. She was even photographed wearing towering Christian Louboutin heels at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton about 10 weeks before she gave birth to baby Harper Seven.

Kate Hudson and Victoria Beckham both gave birth this weekend -- Hudson to a second son and Beckham to the first daughter after three boys. Beckham had been scheduled for a C-section days before, and both women had given birth by cesarean in the past. Indeed, the former Spice Girl was thought to be one of the many actresses, singers and other stars who are sometimes called "too posh to push. " Nonetheless, there's just as notable a trend among celebrities to give birth au natural -- even at home -- as did a host of well-known women, including Meryl Streep and Pamela Anderson.

When David and Victoria Beckham arrived in Los Angeles nearly three years ago, the list of Hollywood power players who came out to greet them was as long as a wall of free-kick defenders: Ron Howard, Will Smith, Steven Spielberg, Demi Moore and Tom Cruise were among those who turned out for a party at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Christmas is a-comin' and the butler's getting cranky. Small wonder if the butler in question is employed by David and Victoria Beckham, otherwise known as the Real Madrid soccer star and his former Spice Girl wife. It seems the Beckhams' former butler, John Giles-Larkin, quit earlier this month and, gosh, they just didn't have anyone to unwrap all those presents when Christmas Day arrived. Victoria Beckham put her foot down -- stamp it like Victoria?
