    A UK size 6 is a US size 4, maybe 2, depending on designer.

    Huh. So Posh and Kim Kardashian claim to be the same size? Love it.

    Right, a UK size 6 is a US size 2, but I still don't think Posh is even that big.

    I think she's doing this to seem like she gives a shit about health, meanwhile she's probably sitting around not exercising and only eating ice chips.

    Good point Shiver!


    They could totally share clothes! Celebrities should just STFU about their supposed clothing sizing.

    Here's another article with a quote from Victoria about the skinny model issue:
    She cited the sculptor Brancusi as an influence for the dresses, saying she "wanted to celebrate curves." Asked about newspaper reports at the weekend that she had banned skinny models from her show, she commented dryly that "it may surprise you to hear, I never actually said that. Models are thin. But I do take my position seriously and I wouldn't want to use very skinny girls." She has cited the US first lady Michelle Obama and the Mad Men star Christina Hendricks as women she would love to dress.

    Yeah, sounds like it's the case. I guess 'size zero' sounds more dramatic a Daily Fail-worthy than whatever the UK equivalent is (um...a four?).

    And good on Vicky. She might be a twig, but casting and hiring models is a separate decision from that.
