Posh faces backlash over Vogue cover
London: Victoria Beckham’s sexy photoshoot for Turkish Vogue has angered Islamic fundamentalists.
The 36-year-old former Spice Girl is seen on the cover holding a cocktail glass, wearing a mini-skirt with her legs spread.
The glossy magazine also has a string of suggestive pictures inside.
And now, Muslim hardliners have called for the magazine to be boycotted because her “western decadence” is a bad influence.
Locals in the hard-line Fatih district of Istanbul slammed the shots.
“We believe women should not flaunt their bodies in public. It’s what we believe as Muslims,” a news daily quoted Barber Duran Kaya, 45, as saying.
“I would not be comfortable if my wife or daughters dressed like it,” he added.
