Victoria Beckham is kind of a big deal. The ever evolving pint sized Posh has many titles, including veteran Popstar, mother-of-four, original WAG and fashion heavyweight. Caring for her kids in 6-inch heels whilst managing a growing fashion empire AND following her husband to different corners of the globe to watch his soccer games; it’s all in a days work for Victoria Beckham. Oh and did we mention she has PERFORMED AT THE OLYMPICS!!
Sounds pretty super right? Well, if you’re as secretly
obsesssed intrigued with the life and times of the Beckhams as we are, here’s a little How To to help you on your way to becoming the next VB.
Step One: The Girl Band
Join a band where you get to wear platform shoes, mini skirts and fist pump about girl power. Oh and make ridiculously catchy pop tunes.
Victoria Beckham first shot to fame as ‘Posh,’ one of the five women who formed the girl group ‘The Spice Girls’ in 1994. The Spice Girls were one of the most succesful groups of the 90s, selling over 55 million records worldwide. They reformed in 2012 to perform at the Olympic Closing Ceremony. Check it out (and don’t pretend that you don’t know all the words!)
Step Two: Marry a hunky soccer star
It doesn’t seem quite fair that VB gets the career, the looks, the talent AND the man, but thats exactly what happened. She was arguably THE original WAG, so to follow in her footsteps you’d better start hanging out at your local football club…
David Beckham may have one of the most recognisable names (and Abs) in soccer, but when he first met Victoria didn’t realise the extent of his fame, saying “I didn’t really know who he was. I was never into football.” After meeting at a charity football event in 1997, Victoria and David were soon married and given the alter-ego-celeb-couple name of ‘Posh and Becks.’ During the early days of their courtship Posh and Becks donned questionable matching outfits, but have since become style icons. They are ambassadors for various luxury goods, have their own perfume line and also appeared in a steamy Emporio Armani Underwear campaign together. They are still married, despite the occasional media scandal, and have four children.
Step Three: Become a fashion icon
Look good. All the time. Then make other people look good. All the time.
Victoria Beckham has somehow managed to transcend the celebrity endorsed perfume market and graduated into a fully fledged and highly regarded fashion designer (and unofficial queen of the pencil skirt.) Whilst Victoria has always been associated with all things style, from her influential hairstyle the ‘Pob’ to Posh’s iconic LBD, Victoria Beckham designs have been snapped up by everyone, from Beyonce to Olivia Palermo to Heidi Klum. They have even got the tick of approval from the fashion heavyweights, her label won the ‘Designer Brand of the Year’ at the British Fashion Awards in 2011.
