Normally when we see Victoria Beckham striking her hottest pose she's running through the airport with her signature over-sized sunglasses, perfectly lip-glossed pout and super-stylish daughter Harper Seven in toe. Not today. The budding fashion designer tweeted the below snap sharing her ultra-glamourous editorial shoot with French Glamour, to her 4.8 million plus followers on Twitter.
Who said the Little Black Dress was a thing of the past? Not VB, that's for sure. The mum come fashion designer come occasional pop star sports a classic but super-fashion look in the shoot which she completes with glowing skin, flawless make up and cascading curls. Whilst it comes as no surprise that Victoria is championing some of her favourite high end designers, namely Lanvin and Giuseppe Zanotti, there are some look a like alternatives for those who need to be a bit more careful when it comes to the old purse strings. Check out our selections, along with VB's actual dress, below.
Victoria Beckham is rocking the fashion industry, and with very good reason. She can do no wrong with her designs at the moment. A-list celebs (and erm... Amy Childs) are wearing her designs all down the red carpet and the high street can't copy them fast enough.
They're really very lovely, aren't they? Continuing Vic's love for all things sleek and simple, they're very wearable (carryable?) Prices start at £795 from Harrods, so they're certainly still an investment. Are we likely to see these on the arms of celebs instead of their Mulberry's? We're not totally convinced they'll replace the celebrity favourite, but the collection is gorgeous and we're very impressed.
Victoria Beckham has had an amazing transformation since her Spice Girl days. We barely even remember the solo career she tried to launch that went terribly wrong. She's just so damn talented as a fashion designer that sometimes we actually actually forget all about the Zigazigaaaah.
Let's mind ourselves of that singing career, shall we?
Luckily, she's rather brilliant at designing clothes.
We were thrilled when we heard that she might be opening her debut store in London. Woohoo! Now, this isn't just tabloid heresay, fashion royalty Vogue are reporting this, and they know their stitches and seams.
Our Vic apparently gets asked about when she's opening up a shop rather a lot:
"People say, 'Am I going to have my own store?' I would love to. That's what I'm working on at the moment. It would probably be in London, but in the not-too-distant future maybe it will Hong Kong. Who knows?"
Pick London, pick London! We promise if you do we'll come and max out our credit cards. Victoria is actually being rather cautious at the moment.
"What I do really is not just focus on the the US or England. I mean there are a lot of territories that are really big for me and Asia is very exciting. I don't want to run before I can walk."
She's being really very sensible, but we're so excited about the prospect of having a VB shop in the UK. It would look very swish indeed, and we'd get to see much more of Vics on this side of the pond. Fingers crossed!
It might be a little bit of a publicity stunt on behalf of baby clothing company My 1st Years, but Harper Beckham has been offered her very first modelling contract. She's only nine months old.
Pouting and being the most famous kid on the planet is clearly paying off, and this is no doubt the first of many offers. The letter was shared with My Daily (told you it was a publicity stunt) and read "Both your parents are fashion icons, and we can see no reason why you shouldn't start your own career in the fashion industry even at your young age."
We're not sure little Harper is ready for her modelling debut. So far the Beckhams do their best to keep their kids out of the public eye and it's not like they need to pedal their kids out to auditions to pay the rent. But they're also not stupid - those photos of David and Harper had our hearts soaring.
That doesn't stop her looking absolutely adorable, maybe one day Victoria will even start designing baby clothes. Let's just hope she stays away from the high heels for kids.
It's getting to be the most 'influential' print on the catwalk. Victoria Beckham's cat print was seen recently taking a stroll down that catwalk and then a very similar print was spotted on the racks at George at Asda. Now there's a very convincing copycat at Dorothy Perkins.
It's not hard to see the influence in this pussybow blouse, is it? This one might be a little more subtle than Vic's but the influence is definitely there.
On the plus side, this blouse (with very apt pussybow) is only £27. That's the purrrfect price for us.
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but we're not so certain that Victoria Beckham will be flattered by this cat print top appearing in the new spring/summer range at George at Asda.
Uncanny, isn't it? Sure, it's a top rather than a dress, but the cute pattern certainly made us do a double take. (Turning the tails around on the cats does not a totally new design make, Asda.) But it's really quite a steal - just a bargainous £8! You can be wondering about buying your Doritos and your mini kievs and pick up a designer copy for less than a tenner.
Posh might not be happy about it, but these are going to sell like hot cakes. The top has just hit stores so if you want one, you'll have to be super quick. Guess where we're heading to get our dinner tonight?
The fashion world headed to the capital for one of the biggest events in the calendar last night,the British Fashion Awards. And Victoria Beckham was so overwhelmed by the whole thing that she cried three times.
Victoria did a Gwyneth Paltrow after she fought off (not literally although that would have given Kate Moss' net dress five minutes peace) Stella McCartney, Burberry and YSL director, Tom Ford to win Designer Brand of the Year.
Accepting her award from good friend Marc Jacobs, Victoria broke down and said: "I'm so sorry for crying. I'm being so rubbish."
She then paid tribute to husband, David Beckham adding: "I would like to thank the British fashion industry for your support. I'd like to thank my team...my parents, my kids, my husband. Without David I wouldn't have the courage to do what I'm doing."
In the audience, Alexa Chung (who won the British Style Award again), David Gandy, Kelly Brook, Daphne Guinness, Kate Hudson, Abbey Clancy and newly-crowned Designer of the Year, Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton applauded the ex-Spice Girl turned eponymous designer who once admitted that she struggled to be taken seriously by the fashion world.

David Beckham has revealed that he already knows what Harper Seven will be when she grows up.
She'll "definitely be in fashion", he said at the launch of his new fragrance DB Homme. Well with Victoria as a mum it would be hard to avoid it. But that's not all.
"She'll be very athletic, because she'll have three brothers running around and kicking footballs at her. She'll be ready for that," David explained.
And apparently Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz are still as obsessed with their sister as they were when she was born: "They won't put her down, they're constantly holding her and playing with her and getting her to smile."
"I was hoping it would calm the boys down and that energy level that they've got would go down a little bit - but it hasn't," he added.
