Her 50th Birthday – From Spice Girl to Fashion Icon: Happy Birthday to Victoria Beckham – News


It got its start 30 years ago as “Posh Spice.” Victoria Beckham celebrates her 50th birthday today.

She is arguably one of the most enduring fashion icons of recent years. Victoria Beckham became famous overnight and the former Spice Girl has been unstoppable ever since.

Singer, designer, model, businesswoman and mother of four – the 50-year-old now impresses with her versatility.

30 years of the Spice Girls

Beckham's career began almost 30 years ago. In 1994, one of the most successful girl groups in the world was created through casting.

Victoria Adams, as she was called at the time, did not choose her nickname “Posh Spice” herself when she founded the band.

Being “posh” has helped me find my style, confidence, and voice.

The name wasn't her first choice, Beckham wrote on Instagram a few years ago. “I was young and shy. “Being 'Posh' has helped me find my style, confidence and voice,” says the former singer.

Victoria Beckham left the band in 2013. Her solo career as a singer was less successful than her bandmates. Posh caused a stir because of her relationship with David Beckham.

On social media, in their Netflix series or in public appearances, the family, which also includes Brooklyn's wife Nicola Peltz, looks familiar and always happy.

But the relationship between Victoria and David Beckham was not always rosy: in 2004, rumors of infidelity overshadowed the image of the dreamy couple. David Beckham is said to have cheated on Victoria with his assistant Rebecca Loos. But the couple survived the crisis and stayed together. This year they celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary.

Career as a designer

Victoria Beckham has her own fashion label “Victoria Beckham” since 2009. The hallmark of her clothes are clean lines and timeless elegant style. Her first collection for the Spanish fast fashion chain will also be released on April 23.

In a world where trends come and go, Victoria Beckham remains a timeless symbol of glamor and style. Happy birthday Bush!
