Victoria Caroline Beckham (née Adams; born 17 April 1974) is an English fashion designer, model and pop singer. In the late 1990s, Victoria Beckham rose to fame with the all-female pop group Spice Girls. Over time, she has built the most enduring career of all the Spice Girls, and remains a favorite of the tabloids.

Victoria was born in Harlow, Essex, United Kingdom, the eldest of three children. She grew up in Goffs Oak, Hertfordshire. As a child, she saw the film Alan Parker film "Fame" (1980) and decided to become a singer.

In 1994, Victoria saw an ad in The Stage for open auditions to join a girl group that was forming. She auditioned and won a role (under her original name Victoria Adams), along with Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm. This project turned into the Spice Girls group.

The Spice Girls released their first single in 1996, "Wannabe." The single became a smash hit, reaching No. 1 on both sides of the Atlantic and around the world. This led to three albums, "Spice," "Spiceworld" and "Forever," and a total of ten No. 1 singles. The Spice Girls became a global phenomenon, with tours, a feature film, and numerous other side projects cementing their fame. The Spice Girls became the top-selling female group ever, selling over 80 million records.

The media dubbed Victoria "Posh Spice" because of her stylish presence. In 2000, the Spice Girls went on an extended hiatus, and Victoria began a solo career.

Victoria and David Beckham.

At the height of Spice Girls fame, Victoria married football star David Beckham on July 4, 1999. They bought a home set on 24 acres, and it became known as Beckingham Palace. Upon her marriage, Victoria changed her name to Victoria Beckham.

Now a major celebrity apart from the Spice Girls, Victoria began modelling in February 2000. This eventually led her to a career as a fashion designer. In 2004, Victoria designed a fashion line for Rock & Republic which focused on high fashion jeans. In 2007, Victoria launched her own dvb Denim line at Saks Fifth Avenue. Then, in 2008, she launched her Victoria Beckham fashion line. In November 2011, the British Fashion Awards named Victoria as Designer Brand of the Year. She remains a top fashion designer.

Along with her modelling and fashion work, Victoria pursued her own singing career. Her first solo single, "Out of Your Mind," led to a contract with Virgin Records. Victoria then released her solo debut album, "Victoria Beckham," and it reached No. 10 on the UK album chart. Another single, "A Mind of its Own," came out in February 2002 and reached No. 6 on the UK singles chart. Ultimate, and under murky circumstances, Victoria ended her association with Virgin.

Victoria then signed with Telstar Records and began recording again. Her first single, "Let Your Head Go"/ "The Groove," reached No. 3 on the UK singles chart in early 2004, but Victoria's heart was not in a solo singing career. She decided to stop singing and focus on her fashion career.

Victoria Beckham celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


After a seven-year break, the Spice Girls reformed in 2007. They released a Greatest Hits album and embarked on a tour. This resulted in a tour film, "Spice Girls: Giving You Everything," and by all accounts the reunion was a huge success.

Victoria Beckham celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


The Spice Girls since have engaged in various projects, with occasional reunions. However, as Victoria has said, "We're all still doing our own thing."

Victoria Beckham celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Victoria has become a global celebrity, and, in addition to her fashion work and occasional Spice Girls projects, that has become her career. The Beckhams moved to Los Angeles, attracting a lot of media attention, and published a couple of self-help books, "Learning to Fly" and "That Extra Half an Inch: Hair, Heels and Everything in Between." As expected, the books sold well based on Victoria's celebrity.

Victoria Beckham celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Victoria has four children: sons Brooklyn Joseph Beckham (born 4 March 1999, Westminster, London), Romeo James Beckham (born 1 September 2002, Westminster, London), Cruz David Beckham (born 20 February 2005, Madrid, Spain); and daughter Harper Seven Beckham (born 10 July 2011, Los Angeles, California).

Victoria Beckham celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


As a huge celebrity, Victoria has had to take extra security precautions. She has received death threats, enduring kidnapping plots, and apparently been targeted by an assassin.

Victoria Beckham celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


On her relationship with husband David, who is a global celebrity in his own right:
It's not about competition. You should see me with a football - there's no competition at all. 

Victoria Beckham celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

If a bride could splurge on a single thing, it's the booze, because that's what guarantees more fun.

Victoria Beckham celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

I'm not materialistic. I believe in presents from the heart, like a drawing that a child does.

Victoria Beckham celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


On husband David:
He's got more personality than people think and he's very deep and spiritual. He always knows how to dress, that was part of his appeal originally. We've got matching dogs, matching watches, similar wardrobes, matchings Jags. I know it's tacky, but it makes me laugh.

Victoria Beckham celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

If you haven't got it. Fake it! Too short? Wear big high heels, but do practice walking!

Victoria Beckham celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

I'm quite an old-fashioned songwriter. I like a song that has lyrics and a good melody.

Victoria Beckham celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

I don't want to be seen smiling, having fun, or eating.

Victoria Beckham celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

I just can't concentrate in flats.

Nicole Scherzinger, "Pussycat Dolls" Legend

Don't Cha Just Love Nicole Scherzinger in Leather?

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com
Nicole Scherzinger.

Nicole Prescovia Elikolani Valiente Scherzinger (born June 29, 1978) is an American singer, songwriter and "The X Factor" judge. She rose to fame as the lead singer of the "Pussycat Dolls" girl group in the 2000s.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. She takes her last name from her stepfather, Gary Scherzinger, who adopted her, and Nicole basically was raised by her mother.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole is of Filipino descent on her father's side, and of half-Hawaiian and half-Ukrainian descent on her mother's (Rosemary Elikolani) side.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole began acting and singing as a child, and later sang in a low-profile band, Travis Meeks' "Days of the New." Nicole also did traditional regional theater, honing her singing skills in musicals such as "Guys and Dolls" and "Showboat." Ultimately, she parted with the band and looked for a new gig.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole auditioned for WB show "Popstars," which purported to follow a band's formation and (hopefully) great success. The WB auditions required Nicole to move to Los Angeles for consideration and, if she was accepted into the group, filming.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Singing Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You," Nicole passed the audition. Along with Ivette Sosa, Maile Misajon, Ana Maria Lombo and Rosanna Tavarez, Nicole became a part of new group "Eden's Crush."

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Eden's Crush went to work and released their debut single, " Get Over Yourself," in March 2001. Due to the publicity around the Popstars television show, it debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 8 and the Hot 100 Singles Sales chart at No. 1.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


The group's debut album, appropriately titled "Popstars," debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 chart. It was an auspicious debut, and the group went out on tour. However, by the end of the year the whirlwind ride was over and the group disbanded due to financial issues at the record label.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole considered various offers during 2002 and 2003, including one to join the Black Eyed Peas, but she decided to strike out on her own. In August 2003, Nicole brought a demo CD to Arista Records in New York City, but a rare citywide blackout occurred while she was there which spoiled her chance. She continued looking around and took various side gigs.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Singer will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas remained a fan even though Nicole had turned down his offer to join his group. He put in a good word for Nicole with Jimmy Iovine, who was forming a new singing group based on his burlesque troupe, the Pussycat Dolls. Once again, Nicole went in for auditions.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Once again, Nicole proved that she was awesome at auditions. Along with Melody Thornton joining Carmit Bachar, Ashley Roberts, Jessica Sutta and Kimberly Wyatt, she became a member of the new Pussycat Dolls girl group.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole continued with occasional side projects. For instance, she covered "Breakfast in Bed" for the soundtrack to Adam Sandler comedy "50 First Dates." However, Nicole became the lead singer of Pussycat Dolls, and she began focusing her efforts on that.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Pussycat Dolls released their debut single, "Don't Cha," on April 19, 2005. Featuring Nicole's breathy vocals, it peaked on the Hot 100 singles chart at No. 2. The group released its debut album, "PCD" in September 2005. It was a big hit, with other popular songs such as "Stickwitu" and "Buttons."

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole then began writing and recording solo material. Her single "Come to Me" became her first solo top ten hit, but later efforts did not do as well. Despite having recorded an entire album of material, she abandoned her solo career, did not release the album, and for the time being returned to Pussycat Dolls.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Pussycat Dolls released a second album, "Doll Domination, on September 23, 2008. It did well, peaking at No. 4 on the album chart. It spawned two two twenty singles, "When I Grow Up" and "I Hate This Part," which actually were taken off Nicole's abortive solo album project. This led to a world tour, Doll Domination Tour, in 2009.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


By this point, Nicole was an established force in the industry. Pussycat Dolls disbanded, and she went on to various solo projects such as an appearance on television show Dancing with the Stars. Finally, in March, 2011, she released her debut solo album, "Killer Love." It was a minor success, and a single, "Right There," hit the top forty. Once again, it was time to look for a new gig.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


In June 2012, Nicole found her new gig: she was chosen to be a judge on Simon Cowell's "The X Factor UK." This lasted for a couple of years and was quite lucrative, though further attempts to establish a solo career came to naught.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Sony Music Entertainment signed Nicole to a multimillion dollar deal in January 2014, which led to a recording contract with RCA Records. This led to her second solo studio album, which peaked at No. 17 on the UK Albums Chart. It was not a success, and RCA dropped her.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole then went back to doing random television projects and stage productions. She appeared on the West End in "Cats, did well on variety show "I Can Do That," and co-starred in a television movie remake of "Dirty Dancing" (2017) on ABC. Nicole remains a force in the music and acting fields, and continues her association with the "X Factor."

Justin Bieber, Canadian Lothario

Justin Bieber, Teenage-Girl Dream Boy

Justin Bieber celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com
Justin Bieber.

Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a hugely popular young Canadian pop musician, actor, and singer-songwriter. Justin posted some videos on Youtube in 2008, when Youtube was just becoming popular. That decision propelled Justin Bieber to worldwide fame and fortune.

Justin Bieber celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin was born in London, Ontario and is of German, English, French-Canadian and Irish ancestry. His parents were not married, and Justin's mother Patricia raised him. Justin has two younger siblings, sister Jazmyn and Jaxon (born in 2009 and 2010, respectively) from a different father.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


An American talent manager (Scooter Braun) spotted one of Justin's Youtube videos. He liked it and decided to check Justin out.

Justin Bieber celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Braun induced Justin to come to Atlanta to record some demo tapes. Braun liked what he heard and arranged for Justin to sing backup for his friend Usher within a week.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Braun signed Justin to his Raymond Braun Media Group, in which Usher also was involved. Braun used his contacts to arrange an audition with The Island Def Jam Music Group. In October 2009, Justin was signed by Island Records.

Justin Bieber celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Now signed to a record deal, Justin began recording his debut album. He released single "One Time," which made the top twenty in both Canada and the United States and other countries around the world.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin released his first album - actually an extended play - "My World" in November 2009. "My World" went Platinum in the United States and double Platinum in both the United Kingdom and Canada.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


After that, Justin Bieber became a musical phenomenon. Having gotten his start on video, he knew how to sell a song, so he went on numerous television shows to market his music.

Justin Bieber celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin also turned to acting, appearing on television series "True Jackson, VP" late in 2009.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin's next album - actually, technically, his debut album - was "My World 2.0," released in 2010. "My World 2.0" debuted at the top of the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart. Once again, Justin did extensive promotion, and the album sold 3.5 million copies in the United States alone.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin also did well with his singles off of "My World 2.0." "Baby," featuring Ludacris, went top five in the United States, "Eenie Meenie" and "Somebody to Love" went top twenty, and "U Smile" went top forty.

Justin Bieber celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com
Justin's single "Baby" is No. 1 for all time.

"Baby" was certified by the RIAA as going 12x Platinum - an absolutely phenomenal achievement. When including streaming, it became the highest certificated single of all time - by anyone. Ever.

Justin Bieber celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


As of this writing, Justin has released four studio albums ("My World 2.0," "Under the Mistletoe," "Believe," and Purpose"). All four have reached No. 1 in the United States and Canada. There has been no dropoff in sales, either, as his most recent album, "Purpose," released in November 2015, sold more copies than his previous two albums.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin's domination extends to the singles charts, too. Aside from all of his other successful singles, he has had worldwide No. 1 hits with "What Do You Mean?", "Sorry," and "Love Yourself."

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin released a 3-D concert film, "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never," on February 11, 2011. It was a huge success and put Justin in the same league as Miley Cyrus, who narrowly beat Justin's box office gross with her own concert film, "Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both World Concert."

Justin Bieber is proudly Canadian and has stated that he has no intention of trying to obtain US citizenship like so many famous Canadians before him.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin's love life is always a matter of intense interest by the press. He famously dated Selena Gomez for a couple of years, but eventually they broke up in 2012. It is unclear who, if anyone, Justin currently is dating, but rumors repeatedly surface that it is singer and actress Hailee Steinfeld. She sometimes denies the rumors, such as on SiriusXM in May 2017, when she said, "We're friends. We've been friends for years."

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Some statistics help to illustrate Justin's wild popularity. In 2010, Youtube reportedly said that 3% of all of its traffic was due to Justin Bieber.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


On the other hand, Justin also generates a lot of ill-will, perhaps from jealous boyfriends and the like. His "Baby" single, the one that is the most successful of all time, also has received more Dislikes on Youtube - 8.1 million at last count - than any other video on Youtube. Of course, it also has 7.1 million Likes, but those figures illustrate how Justin Bieber polarizes the music-going public.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin resides in the United States under an O-1 visa, which is based on "extraordinary ability or achievement" in a field.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin supports several charities. He has done work for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Adam Braun's "Pencils of Promise," and even launched his own online #GiveBackPhilippines campaign after Typhoon Haiyan in 2013. Justin personally delivered a check for $3 million to the Philippines due to his own fundraising, earning him a star on the Walk of Fame Philippines.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin has had several very notorious brushes with the law. For instance, he was arrested for driving under the influence in January 2014. He also had an expired license and, the police claimed, resisted arrest. Justin eventually settled the DUI case with a plea bargain that enabled him to avoid any jail time. This involved making a US$50,000 contribution to a local children's charity, "Our Kids."

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


The Chinese government also has issues with Justin. They barred him from performing in China in July 2017, claiming that the reason was to "purify the Chinese performance environment." The Chinese government claimed that Justin was "badly behaved" and "controversial." In fairness to Justin, the Chinese government has a long history of discriminating against foreign entertainment, and in the past even has had issues with Disney animated feature films.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin Bieber already has sold an estimated 100 million records. Even if he never sold another record, he still would be the best-selling male Canadian artist of all time.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


In 2013, Bieber received a Diamond award from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) to recognize his single "Baby" as being the highest-certified digital song of all time.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin reportedly has fourteen titles in the Guiness Book of World Records, including the most streamed track on Spotify in one week.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Justin Bieber is in a close race with Katy Perry for the most followers all-time on Twitter. At last count, Katy had just over 100 million followers, and Justin had just under that milestone. Justin also is in the top ten all-time on Instagram with over 90 million followers.

Justin Bieber leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com

I believe in God and stuff. I believe He's given me this platform for a reason, to help change people's lives. That's why, in each of my shows, I try to give a positive message.
