Victoria Beckham is two times a lady! The mother of four is pulling double-duty with Vogue starring on two different British Vogue covers for August—a first for the glossy. Patrick Demarchelier shot Beckham at an 18th-century rectory in Hasting, England. One cover features the former Spice Girl in a garden wearing a Chanel coat and blouse while the second cover bares an image of her holding a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel wearing a Prada dress. Inside the issue, the designer talks about turning 40, her family and her workout secrets. The issue hits newsstands on Monday. [Women’s Wear Daily]

The maison de Balenciaga is suing its former creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, for remarks that he made in System magazine in April 2013, breaking his separation agreement stipulating that he would refrain from making harmful remarks publicly about Balenciaga. Ghesquière was quoted in System saying, “It was about branding. I don’t have anything against that; actually, the thing that I’m most proud of that it’s becoming a big financial entity and will continue to exist. But I began to feel as though I was sucked dry, like they wanted to steal my identity while trying to homogenize things.” The case will go in front of a judge on August 27. [Women’s Wear Daily]

July is UV Safety Month and J.Crew wants to make sure that you are protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

So grab your favorite oversized sunnies, rashguard or floppy hat, snap a #selfie and upload the photo using the hashtag #JCrewSmartSun. [GLAM Inbox]

Apparently, sometimes Anna Wintour wakes up and doesn’t feel so great about herself. Or, that’s the way Diane von Furstenberg describes a conversation she had with the bobbed Vogue editrix. “I was having a lousy day, and I asked Anna: ‘Do you ever have a day when you wake up and feel like a loser?’ And she said: ‘Sure, all the time.’ Which made me feel a little better.” With that Glam gals and guys, we introduce you to MyTheresa’s first in a series of designer conversations that give the fashion boutique’s customers a look inside the minds behind their favorite brands.
