Victoria Beckham has come a loooooong way from her Spice Girls days - clad as she was in skin tight, (slightly tubby) midriff baring outfits. These days, her post-baby body is tinier than her former self, and her fashion icon status continues to rise.
VB presented her latest S/S 2012 collection at New York Fashion Week in the New York Public Library (I love her even more!) on September 11 with a one minute silence to remember 9/11/01 and with her new baby, 2 month old Harlow Seven on her knee. Amazing, right?
Here she is on arrival, in one of the dresses from her collection (also one of my personal favourites):
Compared to some of her previous offerings - and indeed the signature style she's developed for herself over time - Victoria's latest collection is less figure-hugging (without losing the clothing's ability to intensely flatter the female form) exhibiting more dropped waists and floatiness than the more structed pieces we would ordinarily come to expect from her. She is also starting to incorporate prints as she navigates slowly out of colour-blocking waters. Not that we don't love a good colour block, frankly.
As Beckham has previously admitted herself, this collection is the girliest collection she has created. And I think it suits her, don't you?
