From landing the lead role in Danny Boyle’s Oscar winning #SlumdogMillionaire to receiving an Oscar nomination for his role in the critically acclaimed #Lion, #DevPatel seems to have done everything right in his career. Oh and he’s also this week’s #ManCrushMonday. Fun fact: He wanted to audition for the main lead of Life of Pi but was turned down as creators thought he was too overexposed already.
#FashionFriday This week’s Fashion Friday features our November 2008 cover girl - Victoria Beckham (@victoriabeckham) who kicked off her fashion empire in 2008 with an eponymous label followed by a lower priced diffusion label in 2011. Beckham was no stranger to the public eye- as a former Spice Girl and wife of football mega-star David Beckham (@davidbeckham) she was already considered a fashion icon. Her design style is chic, tailored and minimal - with a focus on dresses. In 2011 the mother of four won the Designer Brand of the Year at the British Fashion awards. She has been a guest judge on Project Runway, Germany’s next top model and had a small role on Ugly Betty. Her Birkin bag collection is legendary at almost a 100 handbags, the total value of which is said to be 1.5 million pounds. As of 2017 her label has ready to wear, accessories, eyewear, shoes and a sub brand (Victoria by Victoria Beckham) under its belt.
