Don't Bend it Like Beckham
Experts say copying Posh's style could seriously damage your health. Are you guilty of some of these killer fashion moves?
Doctors and other experts are singling out Beckham as the leading cause of a new epidemic, which they've coined "Poshitis." What exactly is Poshitis? It's the back and neck pain you might experience due to carrying large, heavy purses in the crook of your arm, a la Posh. It looks great, sure, but it's been leading to an increase in torn muscles, inflamed shoulder tendons, and repetitive strain injuries.
It all sounds shocking ... until you take into consideration that the average handbag weighs roughly 23 pounds. That's essentially like having a small child hanging from your arm. Not that this particular statistic would intimidate Beckham. The designer has also proved to be a pro at carrying her children in towering 6-inch stilettos -- yet another fashion choice medical professionals say will destroy your posture, especially when combined with Beckham's handbag selection (and handbag carrying technique).
Now that you're armed (heh!) with that information, paparazzi pics of Posh take on a whole new light, don't they? Click through Beckham's killer fashion choices and see if you're still swooning over those shiny Loubs -- or cringing and reaching for the asprin.
