She’s just launched her own range of specs, she’s still totally smitten with hubby Becks (our favourite and rather delicious midfielder), and we’ve even heard rumours of a Spice Girls reunion performance at the London 2012 closing ceremony…
If you haven’t heard Victoria Beckham’s name recently, you must be living in a cave. Posh is on fire and hotter than ever – so now seems the perfect time to take a trip down memory lane, recalling the best (and worst) of her ever-changing style ventures through the years. Remember, it takes a while to grow into a fashion butterfly…
Look away girls! Victoria Adams (as we then knew her) may have ‘spiced up our lives’ back in 1998, but scantily-clad on stage in this 90’s number Posh hadn’t stepped into her style queen stilettos quite yet. Err, is that a bikini?!
Here we have a gooey, loved-up pair of newlyweds…everyone say zig-a-zig-ahhh. But hold on, that doesn’t distract us from these seriously cringey matchy-matchy leather ensembles. The celeb pair were still as gorgeous as always in 1999, but we much prefer them rocking their own styles. Matching charm bracelets, maybe. Matching biker outfits, please no.
Now Vic’s starting to earn her fashion stripes… starting. She struts her stuff in her catwalk debut for Maria Grachvogel. Striding her way into the world of fashion, it wouldn’t be long before she’d become an international style icon. Watch this space…
Whoa! What happened?! It’s still 2000, but here we gasp at a completely different side of the fashionista – Posh flashing the flesh in a seriously raunchy WAG-style combo. Victoria looks more like a ‘Wannabe’ here than a future Vogue cover star.
Are we seeing double?! Well, not quite – but with her mother at the Pride of Britain awards in 2003 VB donned a far more, shall we say, ‘mature’ look in this white suit; the pair even sported the same blonde highlights. We’re not really sure what’s going on here, especially not with that choker…
Three years later and Posh is still in white, but it’s a completely different story…the Spice Girl is smoking as she models for Roberto Cavalli in Milan – it doesn’t get much more glamorous than that. Tanned, slender and with luscious locks to turn us green over, this snap well and truly establishes our girl into fashion royalty.
…And the transformation is complete, just in time for Posh to launch her own line of (now celeb favourite) dresses. We now pronounce Posh as style Queen Victoria in 2008 – she’s sassy and sophisticated in this slinky orange number, giving New York Fashion Week a healthy dose of ‘girl power’. Who else could pull of that colour?! Posh, we are not worthy.
Posh’s reign doesn’t stop there. Here she poses away for Emporio Armani’s A/W lingerie collection in 2009…alongside hubby David, of course (who could forget those boxer adverts?!). Victoria is fierce and flawless, of course, ‘smizing’ her way to top model status.
Viva forever! Mrs Becks is totally in her element in February 2012, launching her own clothing line at Harvey Nichols. This seriously sexy all-black outfit is graceful, but shows she means business – just like her gorgeous collection. We also love her toned-down makeup and hair styling, she’s totally looking the part.
