Victoria Beckham

"She not only understands fashion and trends but has been a trend-setter and fashion icon for years." (Michael Ball -Rock & Republic designer)

The British pop singer turned international fashion icon became far more known for her inability to dress down then her singing carrier.

She is now a successful fashion designer, author and reality star with an impeccable taste in clothes and several appearances in fashion shows, as a model.

As a model Victoria Beckham appeared on Maria Grachvogels catwalk in 2000, on Roberto Cavalllis catwalk in 2006, acted as fashion editor for Harpers Bazaar, was an ambassador for Dolce and Gabbana and the face of Rocawear, Marc Jacobs. She also graced the covers of British, Indian and Russian Vogue.

I really liked her as a blonde, so here are some of my favorite looks

But her guest appearances were only the start and launched her fashion empire that would grow to include a high-end denim label (dvb Style), sunglasses (which she admittedly obsessively collects), a his-and-her fragrance line (Intimately Beckham), cosmetics (V-Sculpt), handbags and of course jewelry. Her own fashion collection was launched 2008 at New York Fashion Week, it also included classy dresses, and received very good reviews.

Her designs can be seen on her personal website:

This is probably the most dressed down you will ever see Victoria Beckham:

And as if this empire was not large enough, Victoria decided to further expand it by adding author to her resume.

What would Victoria Beckham write about you ask? Fashion, of course.

Her book, entitled "That Extra Half an Inch: Hair, Heels and Everything In Between" was published 2006 and sold over 400.000 copies in Britain alone.

The best seller contains fashion, style and beauty tips as well as photography by the famous Annie Leibovitz.
