Posh feels the chill as Katie puts her in the
shade with her fashion collection
The Daily Mail - UK
The rapidly cooling friendship between Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes is under further strain with the news that Tom Cruises wife is likely to eclipse Posh at New York Fashion Week (Sep. 5-12).
Victoria, 33, will use the event to promote her new clothing line VDB but has cancelled her runway show claiming she is not ready to launch the collection.
Meanwhile, Katie, 29, will parade the latest Holmes-Yang collection to kick off Fashion Week.
The timing is unfortunate, says a spy. Victoria will have private viewings of her new collection instead.
'Officially, Victorias people say no runway show was planned and this has nothing to do with Katie launching her line but the truth is Victoria doesnt want the inevitable comparisons.
Sources say the friendship has gone off the boil largely because of the Beckhams reluctance to join the Church of Scientology.
* Meanwhile, Tom Cruise has stepped up security at his Los Angeles home after two anthrax threats were sent to his United Artists offices, forcing the entire building to be evacuated.
Nothing came of it but Tom fears the threats were directed at him, says a Hollywood insider.
He has tightened security in the office and the Scientology church in Hollywood and installed state-of-the-art cameras at his mansion in Beverly Hills. Its like Fort Knox.
