Victoria Beckham Prepares For A Chanel Shoot, Mel B. Lists Insane Olympics Demands [PHOTOS]

Victoria Beckham is currently in Paris to pose for an Elle Magazine fashion story and cover, shot by Chanel‘s creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, according to WWD.

Today (July 23rd), Beckham tweeted a handful of photos from the design house’s couture salons on the Rue Cambon and was spotted holding her youngest son, Cruz’s hand as she headed toward the city’s most expensive shops.  One photo featured Beckham in a white bathrobe on the famous mirrored steps, while another showed off a box of Chanel barettes and a chilled glass of Rose.

It was confirmed last friday that the Spice Girls will reunite for the 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony on August 12th.  All five original band members – Beckham, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell – will take the stage to perform two of their hits, including “Wannabe.”

Olympic bosses are reportedly forcing all acts to lip sync along to pre-recorded tracks, according to the Sun.  “Games chiefs don’t want to leave anything to chance,” a source said.  “They’ve given all acts at the Closing Ceremony the option of miming to their songs. They want the tunes pre-recorded before the event so there’s no problems with the sound.”

No offense to the ladies, but I doubt that will be an issue with them. 

Naturally, rumors are flying left and right about tension between the girls and diva demands.  The Sun also reports that Mel B. has surprised insiders by rattling off what she needs in return for performing, which put a damper on the group’s plans.  “She wants her friends and family flown from all over to see the gig and wants them to have backstage access,” a source explained.  ”And her rider, which includes a demand for a personal stylist to be flown wherever she goes, is ridiculous.

“The delay has nothing to do with Victoria or Mel C — it’s down to Mel B.”
