When former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham announced in 2008 she would be starting her own fashion brand, the snobbier corners of the industry gasped in horror. At the time, Posh was not exactly known for her style credibility, particularly when, after the band’s breakup in 2001, she morphed into Queen WAG (wife and/or girlfriend) of the English football team, thanks to her much-publicized marriage to Manchester United’s star player, David Beckham.

Her uniform of Birkin bags, minuscule hot pants, high heels, gaudy hair extensions, prominent breasts, and fake tans will forever be embedded in the British psyche.
