POSH NIGHT: Linda Wells hosted a dinner Thursday night at the Thompson Beverly Hills to fete Allure’s August cover girl, Victoria Beckham, who, like so many overly adorned pop stars before her, received an image makeover in the issue’s pages. “I’m always surprised when anyone wants me to be on their cover, but it’s really flattering and fun,” said a Marc Jacobs-clad Beckham. “I always show up to a shoot in jeans, a sweatshirt and a ponytail and say, ‘What do you want to do with me?’” Beckham guessed that part of her appeal lies in the fact that she’s not afraid to change her image. “I think it shows I don’t take myself too seriously, and I’m not afraid to push the envelope,” she said. The 50-person dinner, which included Beckham’s husband, mother, father and sister, was also star-studded with the likes of Quincy and Kidada Jones, Jamie Foxx, Eva Longoria and Tony Parker, Kate Beckinsale and Lindsay Lohan. Wells said Allure’s September cover, featuring Carrie Underwood, would also offer a new take on the country crooner. “She looks very much like Ursula Andress with the hair and dramatic eye makeup.”
