Designer Victoria took to her Instagram Stories on Thursday to re-share a picture of the invitation posted by Eva, and said she ‘couldn’t wait’ to see her pal at the show.

The couple have been seen exploring Paris in recent days and attended the Balmain show on Wednesday night, but have not confirmed if they will attend Victoria’s show after she extended them both invites.
On Thursday, Nicola gushed over her mother Claudia Heffner Peltz as she shared a sweet Instagram post of the former model.
Writing ‘I love my mom’, the heiress shared a snap as her husband Brooklyn Beckham, 23, gave mother-in-law Claudia a cuddle during their trip to Paris.
Sharing a video of her mother in the first slide of the carousel, Nicola filmed as Claudia used a handbag as a makeshift umbrella.

She questioned ‘how’s that working for you, mom?’, while the 67-year-old replied ‘Not really, but it’s fine’ – with her daughter giggling behind the camera.
Another shot in the post showed Brooklyn, who donned a bright red Balenciaga co-ord, beaming from ear-to-ear as he wrapped an arm around his mother-in-law.
The couple have been sharing a myriad of posts from Paris as they take in the city’s fashion week, but are yet to confirm whether they will attend Victoria’s show.
The show could be a chance to patch things up for the family, with reports that she and David have reached out to sort things.

A source said: ‘Frankly, the most interesting thing about Nicola is that she married into the Beckham clan. David and Victoria have both reached out to her to try and make peace, and find a way to get along.
‘David and Victoria would love to spend more time with their son and his wife, and be given the opportunity to welcome her into the fold, especially given that Brooklyn practically lives with his parents-in-law.’
If the couple do attend Victoria’s show in Paris, it will be the first time they have all been seen together since being snapped in Italy earlier this summer.
Reports of a feud between Victoria and Nicola have been rife for weeks, with Brooklyn’s wife adding fuel to the fire in a Grazia interview.

Claiming that she was ‘blanked for days’ by her mother-in-law during the design process of her wedding dress in the interview, the actress has reportedly enraged her in-laws by ‘washing the family dirty linen in public’.
Initially, rumours of a rift began as Nicola did not wear a Victoria Beckham wedding dress – which she claimed during the interview was her original plan, before being told the designer’s atelier could not make her a dress.
In the bombshell Grazia interview, she revealed: ‘We connected to start designing the dress, and then a few days went by and I didn’t hear anything. Victoria called my mom and said her atelier couldn’t make it.’
Doting husband Brooklyn made his position clear amid the family feud, telling the publication that Nicola is his ‘number one priority’ and that they ‘have each other’s back 100 per cent’.

But insiders have said Nicola is pushing a ‘false narrative’, leaving Victoria ‘bemused’ as to why she keeps ‘stoking the rumours of a feud’ rather than shutting them down.
And Nicola telling her side of the story has led to even more family drama, with David defending his wife Victoria as he had a rare confrontation with son Brooklyn.
According to MailPlus writer Alison Boshoff, David told Brooklyn ‘we don’t do this in our family’ as he ‘lost his temper’ with the budding chef.
A source said: ‘I don’t think David has ever lost his temper with Brooklyn or had cause to talk to him harshly, but that has now finally happened.
‘He had it out with him and told him: ‘We don’t do this in our family – and you know that we don’t do this in our family.’

Victoria has invited both Brooklyn and Nicola to her Paris Fashion Week debut, which comes after her long stint presenting her clothes in New York and a brief dalliance with London.
Her sophisticated office and evening wear has been a surprise hit with fashionistas ever since her debut show in 2008, confounding those who expected her to be another celebrity dilettante.
But despite having 250 global outlets selling her clothes, 30million followers on Instagram and one of the most famous husbands in the world, Beckham’s company has always struggled to turn a profit.
In a bid to turn things around, she has recruited top French talent – her chairman is Ralph Toledano, ex-president of the French Federation for Haute Couture and Fashion, and her CEO is Marie Leblanc de Reynies, former lead buyer at Paris shopping mecca Printemps.
‘Victoria is not from the fashion world. She threw herself into the business and at a certain point, she needed to structure, organise and bring some order to the house, which is what we’ve been doing for the past four years,’ Toledano told AFP.

Chic evening wear was always going to struggle during the pandemic, and reports this summer showed the label had £54million in debt, and had to cut prices and staff to stay afloat.
But a successful cosmetics line, launched in 2019, has helped trim losses, and the team hopes to break even in the coming months.
Victoria has called her personal fame a ‘double-edged sword’ for the business.
‘Are other brands under the scrutiny that mine is under every time we file (results)? Absolutely not,’ she told Vogue.
‘But how many other brands have the luxury of getting the attention when they want it?’
