The attractive, talented and fortunate Beckhams just celebrated Victoria’s 43rd birthday – and 5-year-old Harper led the charge.
Firstly, can you even believe Victoria Beckham is 43?! For some reason we thought she was older, simply because she’s been so ubiquitous, pop-culture-wise, (no offence, Posh!)
Victoria’s been no more ubiquitous than at Chez Beckham, of course. The Beckham family celebrated Easter – and Posh’s birthday – over the weekend and it was the kind of double-barrelled celebration we’d love to be a fly on the wall at. Luckily Victoria has kind of invited us to the party, in her own arms-length way.
She shared the most adorable part of the family’s festivities on her Instagram account yesterday. The uploaded video features daughter Harper serenading Victoria with a sweet version of Happy Birthday, in front of a lovely pink backdrop (some people call it a wall!)
Victoria Beckham first caught our attention back in 1996, as Posh Spice in the girl group we really, really wanted: The Spice Girls.
She started dating soccer superstar David Beckham soon after, in 1997 and the pair – now dubbed Posh and Becks – went on to marry in 1999.
Victoria and David have gone on to have four children – 18-year-old Brooklyn, 14-year-old Romeo, 12 year-old Cruz and 5-year-old Harper – with Elton John and Elizabeth Hurley apparently grandparents to a couple of them (Brooklyn and Romeo).
Later, Victoria did other fun things like Carpool Karaoke and starring in a couple of reality TV shows documenting her busy and glam life (do yourself a giant trash-TV favour and scroll down for that!)
Deep in Vogue
After The Spice Girls broke up, Victoria made the most of her profile, forging headlong into a successful career as a fashion designer. Launching in 2008, Victoria Beckham is anything but another celebrity novelty brand. Her label is held in high esteem, winning Designer Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Awards in 2011.
Victoria recently guest-edited French Vogue and her line is a fixture at New York Fashion Week, worn by famous types like Elle Macpherson, Blake Lively, Nicole Kidman, Sienna Miller, Claire Danes and Gigi Hadid.
While a critical success, there are reports that the business has been navigating some financial ups and downs over the years. It’s unsurprising, given the volatile nature of the fashion industry, and the fact remains that Posh’s brand is at the very least, a creative success story.
Happy Birthday, Victoria!
