Posh Pointers

When David Beckham came stateside to play soccer in Los Angeles, we knew he'd stop at nothing to give the sport a makeover in this country. Now, his wife and former Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham, is preparing to give American women a makeover, too.

Her book The Extra Half Inch: Hair, Heels and Everything In Between is already a bestseller in the UK, and HarperCollins has just announced that they'll be releasing it in the US this fall. The advice, covering all things beauty to fashion, comes from a personal place. “I know from experience that making the very best of yourself is something any woman can do,” she said in a statement. “I was never the six-foot-tall pinup. I've always been the girl-next-door who got lucky. I've come a long way in the last ten years, but this book isn't my attempt to tell you what or what not to do. It's just to share some of what I've learned."

Fans are sure to eagerly accept to what she shares. Earlier this year, she was seen momentarily holding the tongue-in-cheek diet book Skinny Bitch, which immediately boosted its sales.
