Happy Birthday VB! We Look Back At Her Life In Pictures
Happy birthday VB!
Victoria Beckham has come a long way since her Posh Spice alter ego of the 90s. Now, she's a fashion designer, business woman, and mother (is there anything this lady can't do?). Not only fashion royalty, VB is the Queen of multitasking, and somehow always manages to look iconic whatever she's doing.
We have a feeling that Victoria will be our ultimate fashion inspiration for years and years to come, so here's to you VB! Today Victoria turns 41 and, to celebrate, we’re taking a look back at her extrodinary life in pictures.
**VB channels Posh Spice in Spice World the movie, in a go-to LBD, heels and bob that we envied as teens.
1999: FROWing at London Fashion Week
Victoria smiles as she sits front row at London Fashion Week to cheer on Mel B at the Julian Macdonald show with the other spice girls and, err, Louie Spence.
2000: Walks for Maria Grachvogel
VB took part in London fashion week in 2000, walking at the Maria Grachvogel show. VB spoke to Grazia about her top, when she sold it on theoutnet.com last year, in aid of mothers2mothers. “I can remember phoning my mum before I did that fashion show and saying, ‘Mum I’m really, really nervous.’ She said, ‘Victoria, you’ve been walking since the age of one, you’ve got nothing to be nervous about. Shut up and get on with it!’ So I did.”
2003: David gets an OBE
Victoria wears an all-black ensemble and fascinator with her long hair as, then England football captain, David, recieves an OBE.
2007: Meeting Karl Lagerfeld
In 2007 VB sat front row at the Chanel Spring/Summer Show at Paris Fashion week. Victoria also sold this frock for mothers2mothers and told Grazia about the memories attached to the dress. “I was in Paris for the weekend with Katie Holmes for the Chanel show and I wore this dress to meet Karl Lagerfeld. Katie and I had a fabulous weekend - it was just so much fun - and this dress always reminds me of it” she said.
2008: Showing off her short hair in New York
"I'd just had my hair cut short when I wore this dress - I was out with David and Tom Cruise, and we went to support Katie on Broadway in her play" she told Grazia. **
2011: Royal Wedding
Over six months pregnant, Victoria attended the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William in a navy blue shift dress from her own Autumn/ Winter 2012 collection. The fashion Queen accessorized with custom-made Christian Louboutin heels and Phillip Treacey fascinator.
2012: Victoria and Harper in London

Spotted in jeans and a tee (yes, you are reading this right) in Paris, Victoria looked effortlessly cool, despite being laden with shopping bags. Always ahead of the curve, Victoria was rocking flares before we ever considered that they could be having a come back.
2015: New York Fashion Week
**VB and the entire Beckham clan were the most stylish guests at all of New York fashion week in February. Braving the snow and extremely chilly conditions, VB was looking was snapped looking uber glamourous on the streets of NYC in a cashmere jumper, navy culottes and scarf. The fashionista even braved tall boots despite the snow risk. That's dedication.
