THEY used to be celebrity friends, talking shoulder to shoulder with a bunch of mutual buddies on the best list.
But after Stella McCartney and Victoria Beckham opened their fashion business, things seemed to change and the couple became bitter rivals.
And after a few skirmishes, insiders tell me that Stella has revived her competitive streak with the former Spice Girl – and has enlisted Gigi and Bella Hadid.
A source said, “Normally, Stella doesn’t worry too much about famous supermodels going to her fashion shows as it can be extremely expensive.
“But after seeing Victoria book Gigi and Bella for her first ever Paris Fashion Week show in September, she booked them.
“A few days later, the couple was already on the podium for Stella.
“Everyone found it very funny and now it has become something of a joke in Stella’s office.
“People are saying they can’t wait to see which Posh models sign up for her Fall/Winter 2024 show because they will no doubt call them too.”
Stella’s dash hit came shortly after this newspaper revealed how Posh managed to defeat her avowed fashion nemesis.
Insiders have revealed how Stella, the daughter of Beatles legend Paul, was upset when lead stylist Jane Howe left to work more with Victoria.
A source said at the time, “To say there is some top-level professional rivalry is an understatement.
“Both have achieved tremendous success through hard work and talent.
“They have a lot of respect for each other. But there is quite a lot of tension in the workplace.
“Stella feels like a lot of the celebrities she has dressed in the past have left her for Victoria.
“And everyone in her office is discussing the fact that Jane is no longer with Stella.
“Their rivalry is intense but exciting.”
Now it’s your turn, Posh. But what will she do…
LADY Judi Dench’s job as MI6 boss M in seven James Bond films was far from heavenly.
The Oscar-winner felt undervalued compared to her co-stars Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan, she complained to 007 producer Barbara Broccoli.
Judy told the Ruthie’s Table podcast: “They didn’t send me anywhere, they kept me in a little room in the back.
“One day I said to Barbara: “You know, you go to such glamorous places, and I always sit in that office in the backyard.”
“So for the next movie we made, I was given a trailer with my makeup and everything.
“Barbara told me you could never complain again.”
Kate is in great shape
KATE BEKINSALE may be 50 in just a few months, but she made me feel far from sad this Monday.
The screen queen struck an eccentric pose next to her friend Nina Keith, a latex designer, ahead of a showbiz party.
Kate was fantastic on the Paramount+ crime series The Guilty Party last year and she has upcoming roles in the Philadelphia Charlie Day comedy It’s Always Sunny called El Tonto as well as the spy drama Black Canary “.
Meanwhile, she recently revealed how she works out six days a week to stay in shape.
Consider me motivated.
MILEY CYRUS could get its first UK number 1 in a decade with new single Flowers.
The American superstar released this song on Friday, and last night it was number 2 in the midweek chart update, right behind former Escapism chart leader Ray.
Miley has already won first place in We Can’t Stop and Wrecking Ball in 2013.
It’s lewd to get caught in a package scam
LEWIS CAPALDI may be a chart-topping multi-millionaire, but he falls for the bait, as do some of us.
The singer, who began his final UK tour on Saturday, accidentally gave his credit card details to a fraudulent text, causing his bank to attempt to block his account.
The singer said, “I was scammed on Monday.
“It was a message that my package was missing.
“I followed the link and entered my card details to send the package.
“I didn’t remember having the package, but I did it anyway because I’m a fool.
“Then I had to call my bank, cancel everything and get a new card. Be careful guys. Don’t fall for online scams.
Even more embarrassing for the singer is that he was completely sober when he made the epic mistake.
He said on Instagram Live, “I’m not drunk. I haven’t had a drink since New Year’s Eve.”
Cathy: I felt lost even before I became a mom
Katy Perry says she never felt good enough in her career until her daughter was born.
The mom of one who has sold 48 million albums worldwide said she felt “lost” ahead of Daisy Dove’s birth in August 2020.
Katy said: “I could play in the Super Bowl, but I didn’t have enough.
“I always felt like I wasn’t good enough and there’s this desire to prove it and it’s gas.
“After 30, the gas starts to burn and you have to get out of this burning car alive, so it attacks you if you can’t handle it.”
Now, the Roar singer says she has gained confidence and plans to follow in the footsteps of older stars including Cher and Dolly Parton.
Kathy, married to famous actor Orlando Bloom, told Gwyneth Paltrow on the actress’s Goop podcast, “You don’t see a lot of pop star grandmas or grandmas, but I want to be one of them.
“I want to do this for my daughter, my family and my partner.
“A lot of people don’t survive in our business, so it’s about taking that pain and turning it into something deep.”
Mom is the word for Roman’s parents
ROMAN KEMP’s expression speaks for itself after the big reveal of The Masked Singer.
The metropolitan DJ looks downright stunned when his parents Martin and Shirley Kemp were introduced as Cat and Mouse on the ITV singing show on Saturday.
It was too much for Roman, who joined the song “Take It Off” a few seconds before.
But when Martin and Shirley, who performed in the eighties with Spandau Ballet and Pepsi & Shirlie, were exposed, Roman looked at them with horror.
In his Instagram post, he wrote: “Can someone explain what’s going on. LIARS!
“I JUST SCREAMED ‘TAKE IT OFF’ TO MY PARENTS… I CAN’T CANCEL THIS!”
I wish I could say we were all there, mate, but… . .
YOU may know James Blunt for his music and wit.
But the singer believes that his best asset is his. . . backside
James boasted on the Style DNA podcast, “I have a great ass.
“I was just on vacation and I didn’t have shorts.
“All I could find was Superdry and the woman said, ‘Sorry, this is the girls’ section,’ and I said, ‘I know.’ The men’s were a little big. So I spent my holiday in women’s chinos in size 8.”
NEW ORDER released this T-shirt in support of mental health charity CALM.
Available only until February 17, it celebrates Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year, and features a 12-inch cover design and video from the band’s 1983 hit of the same name.
All proceeds will go towards CALM’s rescue work.
Looking for a queen, Brad
BRAD PITT looked made up for this photo shoot with French Drag Race contestant RuPaul at the premiere of his latest film.
The iconic star flashed her signature smile on the red carpet in Paris for the opening of Babylon, which also stars Margot Robbie.
It opens with a wild party of sex, drugs, nudity and booze. And remember, Brad does it all and calls it work. . .
