Stick-thin Victoria Beckham is reportedly having a powerful effect on her new Hollywood pals – they’re becoming as skinny as she is!
When Victoria and Eva Longoria dined at the Chateau Marmont on August 2 with their sports-star husbands, the women barely touched their food. Sad! The food at Chateau Marmont is amazing.
“They had bruschetta and an artichoke dip at the table for the group, and I never saw Eva eat a thing,” says an eyewitness. Victoria nibbled a tiny bit while drinking white wine.
It’s a turnaround for Eva, who used to say she loved to eat. “Everyone around Victoria seems to be getting thinner,” an insider reveals. Best pal Katie Holmes has also been losing her curves since allegedly getting weight-loss tips from Victoria after Suri was born a year-and-a-half ago.
It’s common for friends to copy each other’s diets, says Dr. Fred Pescatore, author of The Hamptons Diet. “Being photographed next to Victoria adds pressure,” he says, “because she’s so thin she makes even a normal-size woman look large.”
Pressure? That is so backwards, doc! Normal woman look healthy next to Posh, while Posh looks sickly. The pressure is on Victoria to look like she has enough money to buy some food.

Why Victoria Beckham is suing takeaway. Victoria Beckham has launched legal action against a takeaway restaurant which created a caricature of her wearing a sash which reads “Anorexic Fashion Icon” and compared her size to their 2mm pizza crusts. Victoria Beckham is suing a takeaway restaurant which compared its pizza crusts to her figure. The 43-year-old model has launched legal action after Sidhu Golden Fish and Chips in Battle Hill, north east England, created a caricature of the Spice Girls singer wearing a sash which reads “Anorexic Fashion Icon” to advertise its 2mm pizza crusts on the back of their delivery van. The message on the ad reads: “Our new Victoria Beckham Thin Crust only 2mm Thin!! (sic)” There is also an arrow pointing towards the cartoon drawing of the brunette saying “this is not thin”, and another pointing to one of the outer layer of one of their baked flatbreads which reads: “This is thin”. But Victoria’s spokesperson has branded the slogan “thoughtless”. They said: “It is highly inappropriate to trivialise such a disorder, and defamatory to be so thoughtless with a person’s reputation in this way, sadly this is now a legal matter.”
The takeaway’s manager Soni Sidhu has insisted the company didn’t intend to “make light” of eating disorders. He said: “As the manager and on the behalf of all our staff and owners I would like to state we recognise how serious eating disorders are and would never make light the seriousness of people with eating disorders. We would like our customers and all people in general to take our advertising in context.” However, Marg Oaten, a co-founder of eating disorder support service SEED, has slammed the advert as “appalling” and insisted company bosses should “hang their heads in shame”. She is quoted by Mail Online as saying: “Twenty per cent of people who suffer from an eating disorder die each year. To trivialise anorexia in a pizza advert is appalling. There has been a lot of good work done around mental health recently, especially by the royals, in reducing the stigma attached to eating disorders. This is a step in the wrong direction. The people responsible for this should hang their heads in shame. The advert puts people at genuine risk. Those who suffer from eating disorders are constantly battling with their feelings and thoughts.”

There’s is no scientific evidence they work, but for some reason we are turning to crystals to make us happy and healthy. Why?
If you’re looking at your schedule and feeling overwhelmed, take a second to imagine how jam-packed Victoria Beckham’s diary is right now. Juggling four kids, a buzzing social life, and an uber successful global fashion brand is no mean feat.
And yet, with all the whirlwind of New York Fashion Week whizzing around her, we’ve never seen her look so, well, happy. She’s radiant, smiling – and even wearing flat shoes!
The 41-year-old has given UK Vogue magazine a peek inside her handbag. There are a few things you might expect like makeup, eye drops and moisturiser but the most interesting item found is crystals.
“I’m a really positive thinker,” she says. “I believe in creative visualisation, glass is always half full – I have no time for anything negative. And actually, I bought crystals for all of my team, too.”
Beckham’s revealed she carries a black tourmaline rock with her wherever she goes to keep her mind positive. This is a spiritual stone believed to protect against negative energies.
Who knew VB was into crystals? We would have guessed that beauty products would be slipped into her chic designer handbag, but this…
We shouldn’t be surprised; crystals have become the new go-to for people in all walks of life. Don’t presume that because someone’s wearing a sharp tailored suit or dizzyingly high heels and a power pout they don’t have crystals in their bag.
Crystal therapy is the belief that gemstones have energy and healing powers. It became popular in the 1970s and as more and more celebrities have started raving about their calming effects, its popularity has soared.
Madonna, Miranda Kerr, Katy Perry, Cara Delevigne, Adele and Angelina Jolie all believe in healing power of crystals, although there’s no basis in science.
Crystal therapy is no longer dismissed as “New Age hippie mumbo-jumbo”. It’s gone mainstream, even creeping into beauty products; you can find everything from massage treatments to bath oils.
Anna-Marie Solowji, co-founder of BeautyMart says, “I think our attitude to crystal therapy now is that of a post-digital generation. We are seeking to align ourselves with things that aren’t necessarily knowable.”
It’s an interesting theory because it would also explain the increasingly popular fascination with mindfulness, spiritual exploration, meditation and yoga.
Do crystals work?
We don’t know, but what we do know is they work enough for Victoria Beckham to be glowing peacefully in the face of a Fashion Week storm, so they’re probably worth a try!
Where do I put them?
Victoria carries her in her handbag and backstage at her fashion shows. Miranda Kerr has crystals in her yoga room (obvs). Katy Perry is said to sleep with one in her hand. Others hold them in their hand while they meditate.
What should I try?
Black tourmaline – make like VB and try this to protect you from negativity.
Rose Quartz – is for love and to help you be kind to yourself.
Amethyst – is said to help get rid of addictions and disruptive behaviour.
Prehnite – good for dealing with low self-esteem and self-worth.
Citrine – known as the stone of success, often found on desks of high fliers.
Lepidolite – helps you relax, described as a “chill pill in mineral form”.
Aventurine – is supposed to bring you luck.
How do I choose?
It’s said you should pick up a crystal, close your eyes and hold it. If it feels right, buy it. There are crystals for all budgets. Remember to put it in the sun for a few hours every few weeks to recharge its energy.

Women find their fragile frames ‘demotivating’
Dieters say thin celeb figures make them feel even less satisfied with their own – and more likely to give up
It is an age-old dieter’s trick. Sticking a photo of a skinny celebrity on your fridge in the hopes it will put you off the chocolate might work for some.
But for a growing number, super-slim celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Cheryl Cole are now so thin that their appearance is actually having an adverse effect on dieters.
Rather than encourage women to lose weight, they actually demotivate ladies, new research has found.
Un-thin-spiring: Dieters say looking at pictures of Victoria Beckham or Cheryl Cole puts them off their healthy eating plans as they feel they will never attain such unrealistic figures
The study also found that the vast majority of women prefer to look closer to home for inspiration.
Female dieters are five times more likely to dig out an old picture of themselves when they were slimmer if they need inspiration to lose weight, rather than stare at an air-brushed image of a celebrity in a glossy magazine or online.
Two thirds told researchers they were inspired to lose weight after seeing an image of themselves slimmer, while just 12 per cent said a picture of a skinny celebrity helped spur them on.
Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham was the dieter that women loved to hate the most, with a quarter saying they dreaded seeing pictures of the mother-of-four’s fragile frame.
Cheryl Cole was next on the hit list, as a fifth said looking at pictures of the Geordie pop star or watching her perform on stage in barely-there costumes made them feel less motivated to lose weight.
One in ten revealed how images of the newly skinny WAG Abbey Crouch were the ones most likely to put them off their diet.
Other super slim celebrities that came in for a bashing included, the Duchess of Cambridge, Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie and pop star Rihanna.
Meanwhile, a full 90 per cent of women insisted they did not believe celebrity dieters when they said they were able to eat whatever they liked.
The survey of 2,000 women across the UK was commissioned by the New Atkins Diet.
Too thin? Angelina Jolie was one of the stars cited as putting women off their diet
Speaking about the results of the study, Linda O’Byrne, chief nutritionist for the New Atkins Diet, said: ‘For the first time we are able to prove that most women do not respond to glossy, air-brushed images of super skinny celebrities.
CELEBS DIETERS HATE
1. Victoria Beckham
2. Cheryl Cole
3. Abbey Crouch
4. Gwyneth Paltrow
5. Jennifer Aniston
6. Angelina Jolie
7. Duchess of Cambridge
10. Helen Mirren
“In fact women are saying that these images are the least effective way to inspire them to slim down, as it simply makes them feel less satisfied with their own body and less motivated to lose weight and get in shape.
‘People know the glitz and the glamour of celebrity life is not the real world, where what you see is not necessarily what you get. So where better to turn to for inspiration than youself, this can often be the best motivation ever.’
The study also revealed that 95 per cent of adult women across the UK – over 28 million females – have dieted at some point in their life; while one in seven insist they are always on a diet.
Wolverhampton is the diet capital of the UK, where three out of every ten women are constantly on a slimming regime.
Three quarters believe there is too much pressure on women to be slim, with this figure rising to nine out of ten females aged over 55. Interestingly just over half of women under 25 believed there was too much pressure to be a certain size.
Glossy magazines and the media in general, followed by celebrities and the fashion industry, were named and shamed as those applying the most pressure to ordinary women to be slim, while two fifths insisted women had to accept some of the blame themselves.
