FashionLondon EDIT V ictoria Beckham has captured the style zeitgeist since she was catapulted into the world of celebrity as Posh Spice in the 90s. Fashion London takes a further look at the fashionista who’s transformed herself from pop superstar to international trendsetter. In our time, the Fashion London team have lusted over Posh Spice’s trademark LBDs, giggled at the young Beckhams’ his-n-hers leather looks, and come to totally understand her love of a structured blazer. Yes, there have been some questionable choices – the neon ballgown teamed with a perma tan, the snakeskin mini teamed with a shocking pink bra, just for starters - but we admire her commitment to style and continual evolution from WAG to celebrated design icon. The artist formerly known as Posh Spice was never one to do things by halves. At eight, Victoria joined the Jason Theatre School in Enfield, London, and from 17, studied drama at the Laine Arts Theatre College in Surrey. By 20, the hard work was beginning to pay off. Answering an ad in The Stage magazine, she became one fifth of the biggest girl band in history: joining Geri Halliwell, Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton to form The Spice Girls. FashionLondon 13
