The Word: Victoria Beckham designs special Range Rover

For only $129,000, you can purchase an SUV designed by Victoria Beckham.

Because the rich don’t have enough nonsense to spend their money on, Range Rover commissioned the former Spice Girl to help design a limited edition of their new SUV, the Evoque. Only 200 of them will be made with a price tag double that of a regular model.

Does it matter that Beckham has zero experience in designing cars? Of course not! “I did a lot of research and not just with cars, old and new, but boats, planes, movie stars, different locations,” she told Reuters on Sunday (as when you think of “safety” and “reliability” you automatically think: “Movie stars!”).

According to Reuters, the Beckham-designed vehicle features gold accents on the grille and gloss black forged alloy wheels, as well as “vintage-inspired leather seats, rose gold-plated accents and … trimmings of black lacquer, textured aluminum and mohair.”

“I want a car that reflects my personality. I’m really proud of this car,” she told the Daily Mail.


You think a car that reflects Beckham would look eternally grumpy and be so tiny you could never fit into it.

Lohan heads to Lifetime

Considering how closely her life resembles a bad Lifetime movie, it’s only fitting that Lindsay Lohan is indeed heading to the network to star as Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime Original Movie “Liz & Dick.”

After much speculation, it was confirmed yesterday that shooting for the made-for-TV film will begin in June in Los Angeles. “I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor. She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well,” Lohan said in a statement.

“We are thrilled Lindsay will portray beloved Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor,” added Rob Sharenow, the executive vice president of programming for Lifetime. “She is one of the rare actresses who possesses the talent, beauty and intrigue to capture the spirit of such a provocative icon.”

Is Sharenow just effing with us? I mean, come on: “talent, beauty and intrigue”? Considering I’ve seen Lohan’s privates more than my own, where does the intrigue come in again?
