Fashion Flashback: Victoria Beckham

The Bob
2006 was the year Queen Posh debuted her famous bob, which sparked numerous copycats including BFF Katie Holmes. While the bob looked stylish, the outfit was tacky, and we can’t believe she showed up to Tom and Katie’s wedding in this terrible ensemble! 

Girl Power!
We’ll never forget a young Posh posing with her fellow Spice Girls back in 1997 – or the unzipped crop tops and extra dark brown lippie. Her only saving grace is that she was probably the most sophisticated of the bunch! 

Lady in Red
Victoria Beckham wowed everyone in this frou-frou gown by Roland Mouret at the 2006 Anglomania Costume Institute Benefit Gala. However, her upper body didn’t really fill out the gown properly – we hope they were treated to dinner at this gala!  

Designer Days
2008 was the launch of her Victoria Beckham label. Her love affair with flared jeans is still going strong as she sported one of her own designs from her first ever collection.  She looks chic and smart. This is perhaps a turning point in Victoria’s style. 

Posh in Dots
After her recent fashion triumphs, Posh let herself go at the 2009 Costume Institute Gala. Victoria made a dramatic entrance in this Marc Jacobs couture polka dot mini dress, but this was a definite fashion faux pas for the former Spice Girl.  

Vicky from the Block
Yes, 2005 was the year you could have mistaken Victoria for J-Lo as she wore a series of plunging-cleavage dresses. Here she is in a bottle-green Versace number. She’s obviously just discovered hair extensions too! 

Statuesque Beauty
Victoria struck a pose in this stunning black dress from her own label as she attended the Elton John Aids Foundation event in 2009. The gown featured shoulder embellishments and a gorgeous train. This is when Mrs Becks really started to get noticed for her taste in fashion. We approve!  

Minimal in Black
Victoria must have employed a new stylist as she comes into her own in this stunning black masculine ensemble. This is the Victoria we know and love today! She pairs her Jeans with Christian Louboutin heels and a Alexander McQueen blazer. 

Tango Time!
Mrs Beckham loves a bit of orange, and here she is sporting a pair of tangerine trousers. The mother of four donned the fabulous flares from her own collection with a crisp white shirt and a black overcoat. Victoria has fast become one of the only designers that gets away with wearing her own range! 

Baby Fever
Spotted at Los Angeles airport this year wearing a Carven printed skirt, Chloe wedges and a white shirt, Victoria Beckham looks incredible. Nonetheless, it was her choice of accessory that stole the show – her adorable baby Harper dressed in a sunshine yellow dress. What a totally cute mini-me!
