Happy Birthday VB!!!

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 you think she looks so pretty without the scowl? This is my
fav picture of her.

"Most people never become this successful in their second careers.
She is an exception in every sense of the word-in her personality
in everything"
(Karl Largerfeld)

I love that she could have just sat back, become a
footballers wife and nothing else. But she has really had
to strive to get respected in the fashion world, as everyone
was just waiting for her to fail. She plugged away
for years and now she seems to have reached her pinnacle.
That's a lesson in success if ever I saw one.

Cheryl Cole in VB

"She had an amazing potential that only certain women have-
such as Diane von Furstenberg. ………She is not a designer like me, but
she has something that I don't have; a unique sense of wearing what
she creates, images of which go round the world and sell it!"

(Roland Mouret)

"Don't underestimate her" 
(Anna Wintour)

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"
(Manolo Blahnik)

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"
(Eva Longoria)

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".
(Paris Hilton)

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
