Apparently, Victoria Beckham forked out £500,000 for a recent shopping spree in Milan, Italy. Wow! Choosing the top designer boutiques in Milan for her shopping Victoria picked up 20 pairs of Dolce and Gabbana shoes, a £400,000 Rolex watch and 12 pairs of Versace sunglasses, based on reports by the Daily Star newspaper.
Admitting that overspending has become a habit during constant visits to Milan, Victoria said, “I’ve spent too much. Shopping is like a drug. The more you have the more you want. When I am in Milan I don’t know how to resist it. ‘The things in those wonderful boutiques are saying, ‘Come and buy me, come and buy me.’ Anyway, it helps the economy.”Victoria has many top designer friends including Giorgio Armani, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, who all ensured their stores were closed – so she could shop undisturbed by fans.
Victoria also appears on the latest season of American Idol, but was not a favorite of the audience. Brought in to take up the spot left void by Paula, Victoria did little to live up to the challenge of being the ‘new judge’. Critics were also not impressed with her at American Idol with a Los Angeles Times reviewer stating, “The night’s saddest failure, however, was guest judge Victoria Beckham, who actually made plenty of appealing comments… but whose gaunt appearance was so off-putting it might have cost her the slot DeGeneres eventually won.” Another comment, which appeared on the Village Voice, stated: “[Victoria’s] face is just too crazy for the close-up, and she has nothing to add to the commentary… I always thought a British accent made people sound smart but I guess I was wrong.”
