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.

In case you were looking for a really ravishing “something new,” consider this your official heads-up that Victoria Beckham’s gold and diamond wedding crown is soon to be up for sale. The going price? Somewhere between £18,000 to £25,000 (a casual $29,000 to $40,000).

Tempting Posh, but my crown budget caps at 10K.

Sneak a peek at the crown on Vogue UK.
