    I'm curious about this stuff about pumping cash in "to make her books look healthy". Making your books look healthy implies that he is doing something that would make her have better financial statement. I don't know much about her company, but if she has to produce audited financial statements, David Beckham would have limited ability to make her books look healthy and doing something funky could expose him to legal problems.

    Hmmm, I was just thinking it was due to the infusion of cash to put the books in the black rather than the huge loss, but you might be onto something.

    True!
    And also, the designs are not all awful (that garbage bag / skirt is), but they don't really stand out or say anything special.

    I am sure they would still take her with on tour...

    This article is ridiculous. I know people in real life who "inject" millions of dollars a year into their companies, and they are small beans suburban people who happen to be rich. I doubt they're cooking their books. This is "Posh and Becks" who are absurdly wealthy and have been for decades. Besides, "he" is funding "her" company? They've been married for ages, he cheats on her all the bloody time, and she's got plenty of her own money if they're the type of couple to keep track of mine vs. yours. Please. I think marital difficulties are ever present in this relationship, but this seems like a silly place to dig up drama.

    I think the line was a one off, like Lilly Pulitzer. It sold well so Iím surprised it didnít continue.

    I would assume it's the constant purchase of stocks as owner's equity to provide more investment. Or taking loans from Becks' company/ies. The only legit way of using more money from another family business to balance the books in an underperforming family business.

    They have partners in the fashion line too. A private equity group owns about a third now, and Simon Fullers company has a stake as well

    She is about the only one that can pull off her clothes.

    Speaking of Becks, one of the gossip rags by the grocery checkout today had a screaming headline about Angelina Jolie stealing him away from Victoria. Now that would be interesting, Beckalina, Beckagina?

    That's hysterical. I love Beckagina. And yes I'm 12 and yes I'm pronouncing it to rhyme with vagina.

    I don't see what is "overwhelming" about that dress, its a classic design *shrug*
