Posh feels the chill as Katie puts her in the shade with her fashion collection

The rapidly cooling friendship between Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes is under further strain with the news that Tom Cruise’s wife is likely to eclipse Posh at New York Fashion Week.

Victoria, 33, will use the event to promote her new clothing line VDB but has cancelled her runway show claiming she is not ready to launch the collection.

Meanwhile, Katie, 29, will parade the latest Holmes-Yang collection to kick off Fashion Week.


Sources say the friendship has gone off the boil largely because of the Beckhams’ reluctance to join the Church of Scientology.

Meanwhile, Tom Cruise has stepped up security at his Los Angeles home after two anthrax threats were sent to his United Artists offices, forcing the entire building to be evacuated.

‘Nothing came of it but Tom fears the threats were directed at him,’ says a Hollywood insider.

‘He has tightened security in the office and the Scientology church in Hollywood and installed state-of-the-art cameras at his mansion in Beverly Hills. It’s like Fort Knox.’
