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.

Because if this is what 40 looks like, sign me up.

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

Listen: The Spice Girls musical has officially launched in London. (Cue us Googling who plays Becks.)
