Happy Birthday, Victoria Beckham! The Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer turns 45 on Wednesday, April 17, and we’re celebrating by taking a look back at her wild style evolution. If Posh Spice has taught Us anything over the years, it’s that if you wanna be her lover, you gotta get with her fashion choices — and you better believe she’s has quite a few show-stopping red carpet and street style moments over the years.
Having started her career as a globetrotting pop star with a posh persona in the 1990s, the mom-of-four was known for her figure-flaunting strapless minidresses and sky-high heels. As David Beckham’s better half, the international heartthrobs became known for their coordinating looks ranging from all-white-everything awards show outfits to matching denim numbers. And then came her pivot to the fashion world as the founder and designer of her eponymous clothing and accessories line.
Since starting her label in 2008, Beckham has become an award-winning designer known for her classic-with-a-twist ready-to-wear offerings that are created with the modern woman in mind. Having started the collection to fill a void in her own closet, Posh’s simply chic separates and timeless dresses have become a favorite of celebrities and shoppers alike. She has become her own brand ambassador of sorts, wearing pieces of her own design on red carpets and even to the royal wedding.
Speaking of which, she was among the best dressed at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s May 2018 wedding at St George Chapel at Windsor Castle in her navy blue (the same color she wore to watch Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot in April 2011!) Victoria Beckham mididress, netted fascinator and red-orange pumps.
She told the Evening Standard that she received so many inquiries about the cape-like design (which was originally slated to hit stores in November 2018 as part of her pre-spring/summer 2019 collection), the brand moved up the launch to July 2018. And, despite the $1,995 price tag, it promptly sold out.
In honor of Beckham’s 45th birthday, we’re paying homage to her spicy style evolution. Keep scrolling to see all her best looks!
