Victoria Beckham Covers 'Marie Claire' In A Cone Bra, No Pants

Victoria Beckham's on the cover of the November 2010 issue of Marie Claire in a VERY Madonna "Express Yourself" (and, later, Gaga-in-"Alejandro") cone bra with... shoulder pads, and a pair of black underwear SO high-waisted they could otherwise qualify as granny panties, but since they're on Victoria Beckham, they are MOST DEFINITELY not.

We're McLovin' the Mark Ronson-meets-Rihanna pompadour and her couture caped crusader image inside.

The always-angular Victoria Beckham revealed to Marie Claire that she basically married Adonis himself when she married David Beckham, admitting, "We were about to go out somewhere the other day, and he was sending an email. He was sitting at the end of the bed, and he had no clothes on whatsoever. I was getting out of the shower, and I just stood there looking at him. He was all tan. Has all those tattoos--which I love. Hadn't done his hair. He just naturally looks good all the time. He never looks like sh** in the morning. Never. So he's sitting there sending his emails, all ripped. Not an ounce of fat on him." Sigh. And THAT is what it's like to be married to David Beckham. You just get to sit there. Admiring his perfection and the beyond-human fact that he looks beyond human.

Victoria Beckham also reminisced on her fame-making Spice Girls days, which seem "like 100 years ago."

"People I respect complimenting me on my work in fashion is more exciting to me than anything I ever achieved as a Spice Girl," she told Marie Clarie. "I am now competing in an arena where I can hold my head high. I feel quite confident in what I'm doing now, much more than the singing. I was never going to give Mariah Carey any competition."

Not gonna lie, though. Sometimes we miss Posh Spice. Who else could pull off this outfit?
