Starting out as ‘Posh Spice’, when the Spice Girls burst onto the music scene in 1996 (yes, it really was that long ago), Victoria Beckham has since truly evolved into a style icon, trend-setter, universally appreciated fashion designer, and don’t forget that she’s married to one of the most lust after men in the world, David Beckham.
Although Victoria’s career started in music with the Spice Girls, and with a subsequent solo career where she saw four of her singles make it into the UK top 10, she is now perhaps more famous for her iconic fashion status. Victoria has always been acknowledged and applauded for her classic, tailored style and after launching her own hugely successful designer clothing range in 2008. Now a highly sought after designer and respected by the most influential faces in fashion, she was even awarded the prestigious Designer Brand of the Year award at the British Fashion Awards in 2011.
From the beginning of her career it was always clear that Victoria was a big fan of the LBD; in the Spice Girls, Victoria’s alter-ego Posh Spice was synonymous with all black clothing, and in particular black mini dresses. Since then, she has continually confirmed her adoration of the black dress, and some of her most iconic looks have seen her sporting the classic LBD. Most recently she wore a flowing black halterneck design for the Woman of the Year awards and quite outshone the other LBD wearers.
So in honour of the LBD fanatic we’ve recreated one of her most famous LBD moments with our very own Victoria Dress, £86. A timeless style much like it’s namesake, our Victoria dress takes inspiration from one of her most iconic looks at the 2009 London Fashion Week. A classic design that will transcend seasons, this dress represents Victoria’s elegant style and refined sophistication. So in her honour we’ve done our own version, which is just as gorgeous (and with a far friendlier price tag); it’s the type of dress that will continue to be a failsafe option for occasion after occasion, year after year. Think ‘Posh Spice’ with this dress and team with all black accessories. Paired with elegant black court shoes this makes for the ultimate classic look.
