Grazia Daily is reporting that Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes are both set to show their Spring 2013 collections on September 9 during New York Fashion Week. So, does this mean we can expect some sort of a celebrity designer showdown? Probably not.
For one, Beckham and Holmes, who at one point were quite close friends, are at completely different stages of their design careers. Victoria has already established herself as a respected designer, while a newly
freed divorced Katie will be showing her line with stylist Jeanne Yang at NYFW for the first time. Though, with all the buzz surrounding the actress thanks to her recent split from Tom Cruise, her label, Holmes & Yang, will certainly be a hot ticket.
Victoria Beckham is scheduled to show at 10am on Sunday, September 9th (her usual time slot) and while Holmes & Yang is still nowhere to be found on the schedule, we doubt that the two celebrity designers would choose to show at the exact same time. (Though, if they did, Victoria would totally win that face-off). We’re placing our bets that Holmes & Yang will in fact show right before Victoria, at 9am on Sunday, since that time slot seems to be conveniently empty. It’s also probably more likely that Beckham, who struggled to be taken seriously as a designer, will want to help Holmes–not compete with her. But that’s no fun in a tabloid headline…
