Victoria Beckham Style Breakdown – What’s Right, What’s Wrong + How to Fix It
Victoria Beckham is known for three things -- her sense of style, her sky high heels and her permascowl. She wears and designs amazing attire, is never seen in flats and never, ever cracks a smile. Celebs love her clothes. We love her clothes. She has an innate and inherent sense of what looks good on the female body.
Like this girly, trumpet hem black dress with peep-toe ankle booties.
But she's not flawless with fashion --even though she comes close. We don't love her in menswear. Who's she kidding, right?
This fitted tweed shift and bootie/liquid leggings hybrid was the ultimate combo of glam, sexy and chic. Posh ushered in the trend of reverse platforms -- no heel in the back in favor of the ball of the foot. Un-for-get-able.
The former Spice Girl showed off her lithe frame in this grey, belted column gown. It was so simple but it was also a wowza moment.
An LBD is not just an LBD when VB dons it! Her twirly skirt was divine.
Look at this -- the queen bees of fashion! Vogue editress Anna Wintour posed with VB, who she reportedly refuses to put on the cover of the mag -- which would further and fully legitimize an already legit fashion career. Posh was wearing an orange frock of her own design, and while this is not a hue every woman wants to or even can pull off, the cut and the shape was divine.
The cobalt blue skirt is right now, but the loose blouse and long length weren't "her." This is too ladies-who-lunch, and VB doesn't lunch.
This Maison Martin Margiela pantsuit with a flared leg and a heart-shaped bodice was meh on her. It doesn't show the shape she's worked so hard for.
How to Fix It:
Would it kill her to crack a smile every once in a while? The permascowl ages her and she looks so pursed and angry all the time.
And jeans every once in a while are okay for a mom of four.
And so is casual wear, like this black slip dress for an outside sporting event.
We also recommend staying away from loose, sack-like dresses in shiny material. She is a skinny Minnie -- may as well show it off.
