Victoria Beckham's fashion survives jet jangle

Victoria Beckham was on her way to London from L.A. with kids Romeo and Cruz when a bird flew into the jet's engine just as it was starting its take off run, the U.K.'s Sun reports. The plane slammed on the brakes and was stranded as crews rushed to douse the overheated stoppers with foam, leaving the passengers and crew pretty horrified.

"Victoria wasn’t wearing any make-up and had changed into the pajamas provided by the airline," a fellow passenger told the tabloid. “It looked like she kept really calm throughout. She appeared to be comforting Romeo at one point. I guess she was as relieved as everyone else."

Well, of course she was; what, do you think she's some kind of robot or something? You think she'd stay on the plane while everyone else was taken off on a bus so she could change her clothes and put on makeup just for the paparazzis' sake? You're damn right she did! The Sun says she changed into a dress, put on heels and tarted up just in time to cruise the terminal. Now that's class!
