Calling all Victoria Beckham worshipers!
Fans of the Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer will have the chance to see what went on behind the scenes of her stylish operation during New York Fashion Week Fall 2013. Teaming up with Skype, Victoria had cameras follow her around à la day-in-the-life style for her upcoming documentary, Five Years - The Victoria Beckham Fashion Story.
Although it's not quite a rags-to-riches story (she was Posh Spice, after all), the 39-year-old indicates in the trailer (seen after the jump!) that her pop star-to-fashion designer journey was not an easy one: "I always dreamed of designing a collection; it was always my passion. I was a Spice Girl married to a footballer. I was trying to do something that no one had really done before."
There's no word yet as to when the complete documentary will be released, but Skype claims that it's "coming soon."

In a sea of advertisements where underage models are constantly used and already-thin celebrities are edited until their unrecognizeable, model-turned-actress Cameron Diaz has come to change things with her new book, The Body Book.
A short behind-the-scenes video of Diaz photographing women (of all shapes, sizes, and ethnicities!) for her book has been released (seen after the jump) in which the Counselor star promotes overall health and loving one's body instead of weight loss.
The 41-year-old has also been promoting going makeup free, as she even appeared in a photo holding a copy of The Body Book with what seems to be a completely fresh face!
Hopefully more celebrities take notice and jump onto Diaz's body-positive bandwagon.

No one does the mysterious and brooding type better than Robert Pattinson, which is likely why the folks over at Dior casted him as the mysterious, brooding love interest opposite model Camille Rowe.
Released earlier today, the black-and-white (save for the end - ooh that's artsy!) clip sees Pattinson and Rowe as a fashionable-but-rebellious couple smoking cigarettes and causing a ruckus at a fancy dinner hall. Because, naturally, when you wear Dior Homme, you're compelled to act like you're in a French New Wave film.

Keira Knightley, a favorite of Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld, has been hand-picked by the designer to portray Coco Chanel for a short film in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the label's first store in Deuville, France.
Already a celebrity spokesmodel for the French fashion house - whose latest commercials for their Coco Mademoiselle fragrance sparked controversy over its provocative, sensual content - it is no surprise that Lagerfeld decided to cast the A-list film actress to bring Chanel's founder to the screen.
Though the film is planned to be shot on location in Paris, Deuville will be recreated in retro sets that reflect its "original small seaside town charm." French actress Clotilde Hesme has also been cast to play Coco's aunt Adrienne.
While the short's title has yet to be leaked, it is scheduled to premiere in Singapore in conjunction with the unveiling of Chanel's upcoming cruise collection in May.

With fashion advertisements constantly pushing the boundries of what's acceptable to show to the public, it comes as no surprise that Marc Jacobs - a brand that has recently been slammed for portraying Dakota Fanning a la Lolita style in a fragrance ad - would come out with a sunglasses ad featuring a man who appears to be masturbating in public.
Seen above, the man - who was discovered to be an employee from the brand's retail store in SoHo - is initially seen from behind, making a movement with his right arm which indicates that he is pleasuring himself in the middle of a park. The ad then cuts to a frontal shot of him, and it is revealed that he is merely cleaning his sunglasses. Before leaving the frame of the shot, he gives the camera a wry smile.
