Claws out as Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes line up a clash of the catwalks

Former best friends Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes will be fighting it out on the catwalk next month and the claws are out.
I am told the pair, whose friendship fizzled out long before Katie’s recent split from Tom Cruise, are both hosting shows on September 9 during New York fashion week.

Katie, 33, will be showing her Holmes & Yang collection for the first time while Victoria, 38, will be staging her VB show at the New York Public Library.
My sources say Katie is planning to use the hype surrounding her split from husband Tom to overshadow the column inches Victoria desperately wants for her VB range.
‘Katie is definitely hoping to upstage Victoria,’ an insider says.
‘This is her first show and she’s determined to prove that she can pull it off.’
Muse: Designer Henry Holland is considering moving into baby wear if his close friend Pixie Geldof becomes pregnant
Henry Holland is considering a move into babywear and his first range
will be for close friend Pixie Geldof – even though she isn’t a mother
The 29-year-old’s womenswear creations are usually modelled by Agyness Deyn but Henry has promised that if Pixie becomes pregnant he will expand his range.
‘If Pixie has a baby that child would only be allowed to wear Henry Holland,’ he told me at The Ivy Club in London.
‘It would be fun to do more for kids – I could have fun with the slogans.’
Tallulah Le Bon, the youngest daughter of Duran Duran’s Simon and his model wife Yasmin, is the latest rock’n’roll heiress to join the celebrity circuit.
The 17-year-old accompanied her mother to the after-party following the opening night of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Julius Caesar in Covent Garden, where she told me: ‘I want to be a fashion designer.’
Big sister Amber, 22, should be able to offer some tips – she’s a model for Moschino.
