Posh models her mischievous side
VICTORIA BECKHAM has shown off her sense of humour — by teaming up with James Corden to make a spoof trailer for 1980s movie Mannequin.
Earlier this week, the former Spice Girl teased her appearance on The Late Late Show with a video of her in a car with Corden in which she said: ‘So we are here about to film Carpool Karaoke.’
Now the pair have riffed on Victoria’s fashion career and the fact that she is very rarely pictured smiling in a spoof of the much-loved 1987 movie, which saw Kim Cattrall’s mannequin come to life for a lovestruck Andrew McCarthy.
In the two-minute fake trailer, romance builds between the pair and we even get to witness some of Victoria’s fancy footwork — as she models a stylish green pleated skirt, naturally.
But the laughs are reserved for the moments when people walk in on them and Victoria reverts to a mannequin, as in the original.
At one point James memorably manhandles Victoria (well, hopefully an actual mannequin) across a parking lot into a waiting car, where the pair then get busy singing Spice Up Your Life.
It must be said, though, that Victoria is almost inaudible and some have uncharitably accused her of lip-syncing the sequence.
The trailer culminates in Victoria being returned to her own kind in the shop window of — you guessed it — a Target, a cheeky reference to the announcement earlier this week that she will be designing garments for the outlet.
