I have probably – during the course of my career – written about Victoria Beckham more than any other celebrity.
Over the years we have seen the 38-year old veer between Posh Spice the pop-star, Mrs Beckham the WAG, mummy-of-four and now VB, the respected fashion designer. And I doubt I ever thought I’d write that back in the Nineties.
But so it came to pass. Last week Victoria proved her style credentials at New York Fashion Week with a FROW* seating all the queens of modern fashion: Anna Wintour, Italian Vogue’s Anna dello Russo, ex-CEO of netaporter Natalie Massenet and of course, Harper Beckham.
Victoria focused more on separates than her signature form-fitting frocks – with tailored pieces including jackets, trousers and skirts. As she says herself, “I want to design what I want to wear.”
As one of the most stylish working mums in the industry, her sleek off-duty looks might be intimidatingly ‘perfect,’ but her wardrobe of muted colours are easy to recreate. And actually, you don’t need to be a size 6 like her to wear them.
Here are four of her NYC Fashion week looks – recreated from the high street.
