Posh Spice 'Woman of the Year'?

Filed under: Celeb Parents, Mommy Wars

Here is what I know about Posh Spice, aka Victoria Beckham: she used to be a Spice Girl, she's married to a really hunky soccer star, she's very, very thin, has a funky haircut and two kids. As far as I know, she doesn't actually do anything other than be famous. Perhaps there is something about her that I am not aware of? There must be, because according to TMZ, Glamour Magazine just awarded her the Woman of the Year Award because they feel she is "indicative of the modern woman."

Is Victoria Beckham really a "role model" as the editor of the magazine claims? I suppose if you are working towards being very rich and wearing tight, expensive clothes while looking completely miserable, she's a good one to emulate. Otherwise, I don't get it.

Coming in behind Posh as examples of the "modern woman" we all wish we could be were Sienna Miller, who was apparently too drunk to make a speech, the musical group Girls Aloud (who?), Beyonce and Helen Mirren. Oh, and Angelina Jolie. Posh Spice beat Angelina Jolie as a role model for women.

I am going to go out on a limb here and say I think Glamour Magazine is shamelessly courting the favor of America's newest celebrity import. What do you think? Is Posh a good role model for women?
