    The only way to find out her real ancestry is a dna test. I’m pretty sure she has some Southern European ancestry, maybe Jewish and maybe Asian. One of my cousins looks like her and my cousin is mostly Spanish and Southeast Asian.

      There are Southern European women who look like her (as Giuliana Rancic, who also is too skinny and tanning-addicted as Victoria), and British people who look kinda Southern European or even Balkan, but Victoria’s parents and sister look like average British people, so this is evidently not the case.

      Just to confirm even if it wasn’t already obvious, by “Southeast Asian” you mean Filipino right? Because funnily enough some ppl use to think that Victoria Beckham was either part African or Asian, I know someone who swore up and down that Victoria Beckman had distant Filipino ancestry.

      I’d bet it’s Jewish maybe.

      why are you so desperate for her to be mixed or exotic. shes a british woman period. ive seen brits who look more foreign than her get 97% english to dna tests.

    With her old nose pre surgery if she came out and said she was part black I would totally believe her.
