Known since the late 90s as Posh Spice of the legendary pop music girl band 'Spice Girls', Victoria continues to be taking risks in fashion. In the 00’s, she had a ‘fashion model’ stint for the Dolce & Gabbana and Marc Jacobs ad campaigns, and the Roberto Cavalli show. She was even credited for having popularized Roland Mouret, wearing at that time his ‘moon dress’. At 42, she poses as British businesswoman, fashion designer, cover girl, and stylish millionaire of global magnitude. Plus she is David Beckham's wife and mom to four children who always attend her hugely coveted bi-annual shows during New York Fashion Week.
Kicking off a Fashion Career
Designing ‘VB Rocks’, a limited-edition fashion line for Rock & Republic in 2004, marked her fashion industry debut. For getting involved in several designer collaborations, she was awarded by British Glamour Magazine as Woman and Entrepreneur of the Year in 2007. A year later, she launched her eponymous high-end fashion label which was announced as 'Designer Brand of the Year' at the British Fashion Awards in 2011, though it was initially received with mixed feelings. Her next careful steps included the launch of the ‘Victoria Victoria Beckham’ diffusion line in 2012 and her first flagship store in London in 2014.
Victoria Beckham: Style Icon Evolution
From collecting showy Gucci and Carrera sunnies to her current educated and sophisticated personal style, she stands as a single example of an entertainment celebrity gradually gaining the admiration of the fashion community. She started by designing dresses, then added coats and later cool separates to her collections. The looks are completed with statement accessories regularly included in seasonal ‘must-haves’. Most popular handbags right now are the Victoria Beckham ‘Full Moon’, ‘Tulip’, and ‘Topaz’ styles. Celebrities such as Clare Danes, Gwyneth Paltrow and Emilia Clark adopt her designs on the red carpet.
Inside Victoria’s Closet
Her wardrobe mainly consists of monochromes, simple tailored pieces, and luxurious basics from her own line and other premium designers. She encourages every woman to collect investment pieces and opt for flattering minimalist silhouettes. She loves midis, tea-length styles, and flared pants. Although she prefers high-heels and structured silhouettes, she lately includes sneakers, dusters and slouchy sweaters in her day looks. She now mostly wears her own designs, mixed with classics from Casadei, Lanvin, and Hermès. Her fashion rule seems to be ‘adding at least one fitted piece to each look’. Perfect fit is her obsession as a designer too. Besides neutrals, she indulges into red, pink, yellow, and shades of blue.
