Once upon a time, a Spice Girl and a famous footballer were joined in holy matrimony at a characteristically lavish ceremony in an Irish castle. Cut to two decades later, and Victoria and David Beckham are still going strong – albeit with a few bumps along the way. The two just celebrated their 20th anniversary, prompting us to take a time machine back to the past to analyze how their style has evolved. And believe us, it’s come a long way.
In the 90s, Posh and Becks were known for being dedicated followers of fashion, but the pair were ridiculed almost as much as they were admired, largely because of their penchant for matching outfits, like these beige and white ensembles at son Brooklyn’s second birthday party.
The pinnacle of their twinning period came at the 2003 MTV Movie Awards in LA, when Victoria donned a white diamond-embellished Dolce & Gabbana gown while David wore a white suit accessorized with a glittering crucifix necklace.
By the late 2000s, the couple had toned down their look considerably, but they still loved a bit of color coordination. At the Sport Industry Awards 2007, Victoria rocked a chic LBD while David looked dapper in a black velvet jacket.
In 2010, Victoria launched her eponymous designer label and quickly gained the respect of the fashion industry. The following year, the couple attended the royal wedding of the Prince William and Kate Middleton while Victoria was pregnant with daughter Harper, and were named among the best-dressed guests.
Now, two decades after their nuptials, Posh and Becks have completed their transformation from fashion victims to icons, but we love that they still wear matching outfits on the red carpet. Admittedly, these are much more stylish than the ones in the 90s.
