Happy Birthday, Posh: See the Style Icon’s 40 Most Memorable Looks

Spice Girls fans, hold your breath – Posh just turned 40. Now, while her days of choker necklaces and spaghetti straps are long gone (for now), Victoria Beckham has managed to carry that simple, timeless, “little Gucci dress” aesthetic from pop stardom to businesswoman to motherhood. In honor of her big day, elle.com has catalogued 40 of her most memorable looks – and they’re, not surprisingly, much more versatile than her Spice World getups.

For as long as this celeb has been in the spotlight, she’s seldom let her style guard down. As in, every time she wears flats, it’s breaking news. (In a quick Google search, I counted all of two times. In 17 years. No biggie.) With the possible exception of her no-flats rule, we should all take cues. Because if this is what 40 looks like, sign me up.

Check out ELLE for all 40 of Beckham’s most memorable looks.

Chitter Chatter

Chitter Chatter

Take: A virtual tour of designer Tanya Taylor’s studio space. Yep, we’re officially obsessed with her style (as is just about every fashion insider).

Know: Gender-bending model Andrej Pejić has made fashion history by being the first-ever androgynous male to grace Elle’s cover – and trust us, it’s worth picking up.

Congratulate: Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll on their December nuptials. The best part? (Well, aside from the thought of Kate taking “Rocknroll” as her last name.) It’s rumored that Leonardo DiCaprio was the one to give her away. Looks like she finally let go, Jack.

Watch: Lady Gaga’s upcoming documentary by fashion photographer Terry Richardson. Now, this should be interesting… and probably weird.
