Victoria Beckham, known by many as Posh Spice, has been a fashion icon since her rise to fame in the 90s as part of the iconic girl group, the Spice Girls.
Over the years, she has graced the fashion scene with her impeccable style and innovative designs. Turning heads long before starting her eponymous brand, let's take a look at some of her best fashion moments throughout the years.
1. 2001: Elton John's Aids Foundation Gala
The Beckhams coordinated in deep red rose accented ensembles, looking extremely Y2K early on. Victoria’s wrap around dress featured large floral accent, complimented perfectly by a rich silk floor-scrapping skirt.
2. 2020: British Vogue and Tiffany & Co. Fashion and Film Party
Two decades later, Victoria Beckham demonstrated her timeless elegance at the British Vogue and Tiffany & Co. Fashion and Film Party in an all-white suit and Prince-esque frilly white shirt with black cravat detail. Proving that her fashion prowess knows no bounds, the look manages to look both timeless and well-tailored while simultaneously pushing the boundaries with its detailing.
3. 2013: Glamour Women of the Year Awards
Victoria graced the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in 2013, radiating confidence and sophistication in a simple black playsuit that covered her shoes and featured a dramatic strapless neckline.
4. 2007: Vanity Fair Oscar Party
Attending the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in 2007, Victoria Beckham captured the attention of fashion enthusiasts in a simple floor-length white gown, paired with eye-catching-ly large emerald ring and matching chunky bracelet, setting a high standard for red carpet appearances.
Known for switching up her style, Posh Spice also regularly traded her engagement ring too. First spotted wearing the square-cut emerald ring, which is surrounded by diamonds, to this event, it has been reworn many a time, debunking some theories that it was a 40th birthday gift from David.
5. 2003: MTV Movie Awards
In 2003, she took her signature style to the MTV Movie Awards, matching with partner, David Beckham. This time both in head-to-toe white, it was surely a moment to revival Britney and Justin’s Canadian tuxedo.
6. 2000: VH1 Vogue Fashion Awards
At the VH1 Vogue Fashion Awards in 2000, Victoria Beckham proved her fashion-forward mindset and flawless taste. Wearing a matching bright pink silk cami and below-the-knee-length skirt, that wouldn’t look out of place during the recent Valentino PP Pink come Barbiecore trend, what sealed the deal was in the details; thin orange lace trim.
7. 1998: Brit Awards
Back in 1998 at the Brit Awards, Victoria's sense of style was already on display, wearing a yellow and black patterned dress many have compared to a bee. The strapless mini was an absolute stand-out.
Fast forward to 2008, Victoria Beckham launched her eponymous fashion brand, which has since become synonymous with modern, feminine silhouettes. Her collections have consistently pushed the boundaries of contemporary fashion. Let's explore some of her standout moments:
8. Victoria Beckham Ready-to-Wear Collection - September 2008
Victoria's debut Ready-to-Wear collection in September 2008 showcased 10 dresses dedicated to quality, cut, and fit. They made a splash at New York Fashion Week, with one particular favourite being Look Number 8, setting the tone for her future in fashion.
Perfect office turned after-work drinks attire, the black, knee-length dress was made up of a silk material from the bellybutton down, taking a polo style for the top half of the look, and perfectly detailed with two practical side pockets.
9. Victoria Beckham Fall 2014 Ready-to-Wear - Look 3
In 2014, Victoria Beckham's Fall collection gained recognition as she wore Look 3 to the British Fashion Awards, where she won the Brand of the Year Award. Her outfit underscored her ability to effortlessly blend her brand's designs with her personal style, merging a comfortable black jumper with a split white/black ankle-length skirt; turned with the colour split at the front on the runway and to the side on Beckham.
10. Spring Summer 2023 - Look Number 4
One of her latest creations, Look Number 4 from the Spring Summer 2023 collection, has taken the fashion world by storm. This design, beautifully complemented by long black leather gloves, has been worn by fashion trendsetters such as Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner.
With its exquisite green shade and universally flattering design, Look Number 4 is a testament to Victoria Beckham's unwavering commitment to fashion innovation.
Victoria Beckham has consistently demonstrated her fashion prowess over the years, both as an iconic figure and as a talented designer.
From her early years as Posh Spice with colourful, thin-strapped looks to her current role as a celebrated fashion maven for modern clean-girl styles, her impact on the industry is undeniable. As she continues to evolve her brand, and keeps the TikToks coming, we can only anticipate more remarkable fashion moments in the years to come.
