For a woman that used to be known only as her moniker “Posh”, Victoria Beckham’s reinvention as a fashion industry powerhouse has made her into a household name.
Not only is she the best-dressed woman in Britain, she’s also one of the most exciting designers to emerge from the New York Fashion Week scene. Her strict, minimalist aesthetic, curvy silhouettes, and punchy color-blocked collections are worn by fashion editors, acolytes, and VIPs the world over. Which prompts the question: what does Victoria Beckham wear herself? For this reason – and our continuing admiration for Beckham as a tastemaker in her own right – we pulled her Style File. In it are 15 of her hottest looks from recent memory. At times, you’ll see the Victoria Beckham brand emerge, but you’ll also get a taste of the designers she loves, the combinations she favors, and the color palettes she can’t get enough of.
