I have a lot of questions for Victoria Beckham. One being, What’s your favourite of the 15 engagement rings David gifted you? When will we get a follow-up reality show to Victoria Beckham: Coming to America? I could go on. But no question is more pressing in my mind right now than this one: How on Earth did you get through airport security wearing Balenciaga’s controversial Pantaleggings?
The trousers in question were worn by Beckham on a flight into New York City’s JFK Airport alongside a cinched cargo-style jacket, a black clutch bag, and oversize sunglasses of her own design. Essentially, they’re leggings, but instead of cutting off at the ankle, they keep going all the way around a pair of attached stiletto heels. Named the Anatomic Pantaleggings, her exact style first debuted in Balenciaga’s winter 2023 collection and features an even sharper heel than past versions. Basically, they’re an airport security manager’s worst nightmare, which is why I’m still left wondering how the former Spice Girls member made it past the scanners with her outfit intact.
