From Spice Girl to driven career woman, Victoria Beckham has worked hard to transform her image over the years.
After rising to fame as part of the ‘girl power’ pop-group The Spice Girls in the 90s, Victoria went on to marry world famous heart-throb David Beckham in 1999.
Finally, after four children and several attempts to disassociate herself with the ‘girl band’ image, Victoria launched her fashion line back in 2008 to rave reviews.
Victoria Beckham’s career has gone from strength to strength ever since.
Her former girl band’s music is still loved the world over two decades later, and her fashion line is worn by globally famous supermodels and has celebrity fans that range from the likes of Helen Mirren to Gwyneth Paltrow.
However, when it was announced that the 42-year-old will receive an OBE in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List, not everyone was pleased with the news.
Despite the critics, many people were quick to jump to Victoria’s defence, arguing she is more than deserving of the accolade.
The designer is reportedly ‘delighted and humbled’ to have been chosen to receive an OBE for her services to the fashion industry and her charity work.
The honour comes 13 years after her husband, David, received his OBE. He describes the occasion as one of his ‘proudest moments’.
‘That day was special for me because I brought my grandparents with me, it made me proud that I could bring them to somewhere that they worshiped for their whole lives.
He added, “Meeting the Queen, it doesn’t get better than that. You can feel the emotion, I can personally feel the emotion, because I just love everything about our Queen and what she represents.”
