Hurray, Victoria Beckham just welcomed a long awaited baby girl, Harper Seven Beckham, this Sunday. It seems like everyone was waiting to see a new little fashion icon and rich girl. Well, I am definitely waiting to see what kind of cute tiny outfits little Beckham princess will be wearing. There was a rumor that Victoria already ordered little custom-made baby shoes with trademark red soles from Christian Louboutin. How cool is that?!
So, before all attention will go towards a little princess, I would like to take a moment and to talk about the proud mother – Victoria Beckham.
It was hard for me to decide in which category to put a post about Victoria, because her life is a true Success Story and she also have built a strong Fashion Brand. As everything in our girls life always goes down to clothes, I decided to emphasize the fashion part, but also not forgetting to talk a little about Victoria’s success in other parts of her life.
I personally really like Victoria Beckham and think that she is a fascinating woman and rich girl. She is showing us that a girl can really have it all: loving husband, amazing family, successful career, fame, recognition and lots of money. So, what do we really know about Victoria Beckham and what can we learn from her example? Let’s follow Victoria through her life’s journey with the help of Wikipedia and Victoria’s website. :)
– Music Career – Victoria’s rise to fame started when she joined “Spice Girls” in 1994 when she was 20 years old. After the group released their single called “Wannabe” in 1996, there was no doubt that the new pop ladies are going to take over the world, “Spice Girls” was a very popular group in the ’90’s. Victoria definitely stood out from the rest of the four girls with her feminine look and high heels, because of her sophisticated style she was nicknames “Posh Spice”.
After “Spice Girls” band stopped recording, Victoria tried to build her solo career, but it was not that successful. Although all of her released singles reached top 10 in UK neither of them reached number 1.
– Books – Victoria wrote two books: first one was her autobiography “Learning to Fly”, released on 13 September 2001 and became the third best-selling non-fiction title of 2001. The book documents her childhood, time during the Spice Girls, her marriage and family life, as well as her career at the time.
Victoria Beckham’s second book, That Extra Half an Inch: Hair, Heels and Everything In Between”, was published on 27 October 2006. a fashion advice guide, entitled “ The book includes tips from Beckham on fashion, style and beauty. According to Wikipedia, the book became another bestseller, and has sold 400,000 copies in Britain alone since it was published in hardcover.
– Fashion – I am not gonna go into details about what Victoria Beckham designed over the years, on which magazine covers and fashion shows she appeared, if you are interested in such kind of details you can always find them online. What I am more interested in is her fashion label, which became very popular with Hollywood celebrities.
Gwyneth Paltrow, Blake Lively, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, Trudie Styler, Elle Macpherson, Nicole Scherzinger, Jennifer Hudson, Heidi Klum, Jennifer Lopez, Katie Holmes, Jessica Simpson, Eva Longoria were seen in Victoria Beckham designs and looked gorgeous.
During New York Fashion Week Victoria Beckham presented the 100th dress she has designed. I have picked a few designs which I liked the most from the Spring/Summer 2011 and Autumn/Winter 2011 collections, but you can definitely go and see the whole collection and decide what you like on Victoria’s website.

So, rich girls, what do you think about the dresses? Would you wear them?
– Family – I believe that whatever success and huge amounts of money you have, this doesn’t matter a lot if you don’t have a person to share it with. Some girls choose to not have a family and concentrate mainly on their career, and it is their choice and right to do. I personally think that there should always be a balance in your life and if you can manage to have a successful career and have adorable kids and husband, then you have really earned a “Super Woman” title. But again, no one says that if you don’t have any of this you are not amazing girl! It is just very rare when someone has it all, maybe just because not everyone wants it in the first place.
Victoria Beckham has 4 kids and world-famous handsome footballer David Beckham as a husband, successful fashion label, great looks and world fame. I just wonder what else she might need and want at this point? What do you think, girls?
I don’t know about you, but I am really inspired by Victoria Beckham. Her life just proves that you should never stop to strive for more in your life, try different things, but also keep the balance between your career and personal life, a heavy, but manageable task.
