OK, so Mrs B celebrates turning 40 today and there
are so many reasons why I have so much respect for this woman.
She faced some of her harshest critics from the UK, and yet she
just kept her head down and kept on keeping on.
Here are some other reasons I respect here so much.
"Don't underestimate her"
|Jennifer Hudson in VB|
"She is spontaneous with a great sense of humor; humble
yet at the same time driven by a healthy ambition. She
is a perfectionist, like everyone who is passionate
about their work"
(Emmanuelle Alt-Editor-in-Chief, Vogue, Paris)
"She is a very sweet woman with a great sense of humor.
You can tell she's passionate about her collections"
|Miss "Conscious Uncoupling" in VB|
What I personally love about her is that the word "humble" comes up
continuously by people that know her. She has to be one of the most photo
graphed women in the world and yet I have never read of any diva
behavior in any shape or form.
Some say that she knows all the right people hence her success.
I don't agree. You have to do more than "know" the right people,
you have to deliver and she has shown she can deliver through
sheer hard work and fiery ambition.
|Oprah wearing VB|
She always said she wanted all shapes of women to
wear her clothes and she stayed true to her word.
It wasn't just a marketing ploy
"We're close friends. She's just an amazing woman….
I aspire to be like her some day. She is not
just another celebrity trying to have a clothing line.
She IS fashion and definitely knows what she is talking about"
|Her BFF wearing VB|
She recently revealed that she collects crystals to
create positive energy, believes in karma
and works out at 6am five days a week!
(now that is someone disciplined!)
|German Vogue in 2010|
|British Vogue in 2008|
"I look at people like Victoria Beckham and
admire them so much……………I don't know how she
can have four kids the perfect brand and an even
more perfect husband".
She is certainly like Marmite-you either love
her or hate her. I am going with the former.
She doesn't always get things right. She has
had more than her fair share of fashion blunders,
but haven't we all by the time we get to 40.
I would love to hear your views.
Happy Easter Lovelies
