Victoria Caroline Beckham born 17 April 1974 is an English businesswoman, fashion designer, model, and singer.
In the late 1990s, Beckham rose to fame with the all-female pop group Spice Girls, and was dubbed Posh Spice
by the July 1996 issue of the British music magazine Top of the Pops. After the Spice Girls split, she was
signed to Virgin Records and Telstar Records and had four UK Top 10 singles. Her first release, “Out of Your Mind”,
reached in the UK Singles Chart.
Beckham has participated in five official documentaries and reality shows about her, including Victoria’s Secrets,
Being Victoria Beckham, The Real Beckhams, Victoria Beckham – A Mile In Their Shoes and Victoria Beckham: Coming
to America. She has since made a cameo appearance in an episode of Ugly Betty, and been a guest judge on Project
Runway, Germany’s Next Topmodel, and American Idol.
In the past decade, Beckham has become an internationally recognised style icon and fashion designer. Following
high-profile collaborations with other brands, she launched an eponymous label in 2008, and a lower-priced (diffusion)
label in 2011. The Victoria Beckham label was named designer brand of the year in the UK in 2011; in 2012 the brand
was assessed as the star performer in the Beckham family’s business interests. Writing in the Daily Telegraph in 2011,
Belinda White noted that the transition from WAG to fashion designer had been more successful than most had predicted,
saying: “She has gathered a significant celebrity following and won over the scathing fashion pack who now clamour for
a ticket to her bi-annual show at New York Fashion Week. She is married to David Beckham, and they have four children.
As of September 2015, the couple’s joint wealth is estimated at 508 million.
