BRAVO'S LATEST OPTIONS: Rose Marie Bravo, former chief executive of Burberry, may have left her day-to-day duties behind last summer, but she's still reaping the rewards of her labors. Bravo, whose title is now vice chairman of Burberry, on Thursday cashed in executive share options worth more than 3 million pounds, or $5.9 million. The options were granted to Bravo around the time that Burberry was floated on the London Stock Exchange five years ago. Bravo handed over the reins to her successor, Angela Ahrendts, on July 1. However, as vice chairman and an employee of the company, she is still eligible to take advantage of stock options.

NO BAGS FOR BECKHAM: Victoria Beckham may love her branded bags and heels, but clearly not enough to design them herself. A spokeswoman for Beckham denied a report in Britain's Daily Mirror on Friday that the former Posh Spice had signed a $5 million deal in the U.S. to design a collection of high-end accessories. But Beckham isn't exactly sitting still: Sources in London say she is already working with New York-based marketing and communications firm Lividini Weisenfeld Partners to develop plans for the DVB brand in the U.S. Her latest product is sunglasses, which have just hit stores in the U.K. and will arrive at Fred Segal at the end of February.
