As a Spice Girl in the mid-1990s, Victoria Beckham’s Union Jack flag dress was her most memorable style statement. As a designer, Beckham would probably abhor the kitschy dress. She chooses to design elegant silhouettes that have been worn by several celebrities.
Ex-bandmate Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) says Beckham loves to offer fashion advice to her friends.
She told contactmusic.com, “Victoria’s dresses always make you feel so stylish. I am so lucky to have a great friend who designs wonderful outfits! She is an amazing designer.”
Emma Bunton wore a short screen-printed dress designed by Beckham to the London premiere of Sex and the City 2.
“It is so difficult to go from music and do something else and there is real pressure, but it’s worked out so brilliantly for her,” she said. “She has given me advice before and told me to keep it classic.”
Beckham, who started designing jeans in 2004 for Rock and Republic, launched herself as a designer at New York Fashion Week in 2008. Since then, her critically acclaimed designs have been sported by an impressive slew of A-listers, including actors Courteney Cox, Jennifer Hudson, Drew Barrymore, Blake Lively and Cameron Diaz and ex-supermodel Elle MacPherson.
