She’s the queen of modern minimalism, but Victoria Beckham has been stepping out of her all-black comfort zone lately in a series of patterned, sequinned and colourful ensembles. While out and about in New York on Thursday (June 5), all eyes were on the mother of four, 41, and her floral-patterned pink skirt.
The former pop star, who is married to David Beckham, teamed the skirt with a matching clutch bag and a cream top, adding a belt to showcase her slender silhouette. In another sartorial move that surprised fans, Victoria ditched her trademark stilettos in favour of pink strappy platform heels – a far cry from the pair she used to wear when performing with the Spice Girls.
“They were awful,” she said of her alter-ego Posh Spice’s choice of footwear while giving a talk in the Big Apple, admitting they were the one fashion faux pas that she regrets.
Later in the day, Victoria was back to her signature black ensembles but it seems she is becoming a fan of floral prints. Rocking a tailored black coat and her beloved black stilettos, the British beauty showed off her fashion-forward credentials in a pair of skinny black trousers printed with little red flowers and green leaves.
On Wednesday (May 3), Victoria showed off her incredible figure in a dress that features an asymmetric neckline and a daring, thigh-high slit. Even the designer’s signature black stilettos were left at home, as Victoria chose a bold pair of royal-blue heels to complement her ensemble. Her accessories were closer to her usual looks however, as she opted for a pair of oversized sunglasses and a dazzling bangle.
The mother-of-four was heading to a talk about fashion icons, where she was interviewed by Fern Mallis, the Executive Director of the CFDA, a few days after the organisation held their glitzy awards.
Earlier, on a night out at the Polo Club, the designer wore a black sequinned top with a daring neckline that plunged almost to her navel. She paired the glamorous number with low-cut jeans and a black blazer draped over her shoulders - yet another look look that’s not characteristic but dazzling nonetheless.
