46-year-old former ‘SPICE Girl’ Victoria Beckham is opening up about making her fashion brand more inclusive!

Beckham shared a statement on Instagram this past Friday, saying that she’s taking a break from social media so as to focus on how to make her brand more diverse and support Black Lives Matter…she writes: “Watching things unfold and learning more about the Black Lives Matter movement, I’ve been truly sickened by how deeply ingrained racism is in our society. It’s clear that it’s each of our responsibilities to speak out and I want to use my platform for education, conversation and change.”

“The fashion industry has a huge role to play, and for me, it starts with representation, both within my business and who we work with externally. I’ve always aimed for inclusivity, but we all need to look inwards and be better. At Victoria Beckham, we’ve set up an internal working group as a first step and will provide additional support to ensure that we are listening to each other, discussing the issues, identifying unconscious bias in ourselves and ensuring our short and long-term actions reflect all our learnings. Whilst things won’t change or be solved in a day, we clearly can’t wait another day to start and I am absolutely committed to being better and doing more, both personally and professionally. I hope you all share my sentiment and are doing the same with your friends, family, brands and businesses so that we all play our part in this vital issue. x vb”… Take a look below and let us know what you think:

The 'How Come You Don't Call Me' singer expressed her disapproval of Snow White's character and that she will NOT let her sons watch the film. She tells Net-a-Porter's The EDIT: "They say that every child learns from their mother – and it’s ingrained from babyhood. I get real funky about the classics; I don’t like watching . It’s totally sexist, misogynistic – she’s cleaning for seven dwarfs.” She continues: "There’s nothing wrong with a woman who chooses to stay at home with her family, it’s a hard-ass job, but it’s the way it’s spoken about. For the first time, I’m recognizing how art, activism, socially what we’re going through, all go together. For the longest time I thought it was all separate.” For more click here.

Meghan Markle is a Disrespectful Duchess, Says Princess Diana’s Secretary

A former aide to Princess Diana says that Meghan Markle's 'baby shower' which was billed by the palace to be a private, "quiet girls trip" turned out to be a gaudy over-the-top affair with Meghan even checking into a $75,000-a-night suite at NYC's The Mark Hotel. Meghan, 37, even dined at the Lauduree Bakery and ate at Ralph Lauren's Polo Bar restaurant with friends. Unlike other royals, Meghan has made no effort to use secret entrances and has walked around in the open, for the public and paparazzi attention. Patrick Jephson, Princess Diana's long-time secretary says: "This is a clear sign that Meghan thinks that being a royal Duchess is about celebrity — not royalty." He continued to say that Diana would have never behaved in the ways Meghan is, adding: "If you are royal and you want to be private, there are a million ways you can be. Diana always stayed at The Carlyle in New York, which prides itself on its discretion for its famous guests. The fact that Meghan allowed this to become a media circus is very revealing.
