“I would love to dress Mrs. Obama absolutely absolutely absolutely! I just think she’s incredible and she’s a very strong woman and she’s beautiful,” Beckham gushed at the bash. “I love women and I just want to make women feel good and beautiful and it’s just been a huge compliment that ladies have enjoyed wearing my dresses and they look great! It just goes to show they can flatter women of all different shapes and sizes, all different heights, and that’s what it’s about. It’s about creating an illusion and having a great cut.”
Speaking of the Obama’s, a few of the partygoers believe the president needs to step up and make more of an effort to legalize same-sex marriage.

“She’s beautiful,” while motioning to his fiancee, Mezhgan Hussainy.
Oh, and should we be calling “new couple alert?”
Ultimate playboy Jamie Foxx arrived at the bash with a woman on his arm that is (shock!) two years his senior – “Clueless” betty Stacey Dash. The two apparently looked like they were very much “together;” prompting rumors there is a budding romance in the air…
