Victoria Beckham could wear any designer outfit in the world except for one – Alexander McQueen - and that's because he reportedly banned her from wearing any of his clothes!

The late fashion designer who committed suicide at aged 40 in 2010 was considered a "god of fashion" in Great Britain. So what happened between him and Posh Spice?

In a new tell-all book titled – Gods And Kings – a revelatory biography of McQueen and his rival, John Galliano, author and journalist Dana Thomas reveals the designer also "barred David Beckham's wife from his catwalk because he thought she was stupid".

The book also recalls McQueen's 2001 Voss collection show at the bus depot in Victoria, London, and reveals how it started late because actress Gwyneth Paltrow was stuck in traffic. McQueen allegedly said the show could not start until she arrived.

But Mrs Beckham didn't get the same treatment. According to Ms Thomas, the former singer asked to be invited but McQueen bluntly turned her down.

Funny things is, 'Gods And Kings' is released as Mrs Beckham, who has four children with her football beau, continues to receive rave reviews for her latest fashion collection at New York Fashion Week 2015.

Thomas further claims Alex said: "F****** right. At the end of the day, it's about my clothes and the hard work that everyone backstage puts into it, not about the t***** sitting in the front row lapping it up.

“And that's why I didn't let Posh Spice come to it… The stars you see at my shows, be it Gwyneth Paltrow, be it anyone else, are there because I've got a connection with them… [I design for] intelligent women.”

The late designer also reportedly got furious when he saw photographs of Mrs Beckham wearing his classic tartan skirt in 2006.

In July last year, fashion stylist Archie Reed, who was McQueen's lover – on and off – for 12 years and his closest confidant, revealed that McQueen told DailyMail:

"David can wear my clothes but she can't. He thought David was hot, but he couldn't abide Victoria. After he saw her in his tartans he put out the word that she wasn't allowed to get any freebies any more.

"Lee didn't rate her as a fashion designer at all and used to say: "What the f*** does she know about fashion? She's a pop star, and she can't even sing.

"No matter how famous he was, he always used to say that celebrity and celebrities didn't matter to him at all.”

Wow!
