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.

#CastMeMarc: Label Picks New Face via Social Media

Last night, ultra-cool label Marc by Marc Jacobs announced that it will be selecting the face of its latest campaign through a social media “casting call.” Yes, you read that right – one of us mere tweeting mortals might just skyrocket to glossy-paged stardom.

The audition process is pretty straightforward. All you have to do is snap a picture, hashtag it with #CastMeMarc, and post it to Instagram or Twitter. So expect your feeds to get slammed with artfully staged selfies over the next few days. I mean, who could resist the opportunity to join the ranks of Victoria Beckham, Sofia Coppola, Miley Cyrus, and the Fanning sisters? Not this writer.

Now, go get that selfie game on point. The “casting call” ends April 9.

All in the Family: Brooklyn Beckham Lands Modeling Gig

As the offspring of an international pop star–turned–designer and soccer legend–slash–underwear god, the Beckham children come from one seriously amazing gene pool. So the fact that they’re taking over the fashion world one by one shouldn’t really come as a surprise.

First there was Romeo, who starred alongside Cara Delevingne in a 2013 Burberry campaign. And now Brooklyn, his brother and the eldest child of the superstar couple, is jumping on the modeling bandwagon – he landed the cover of this year’s spring/summer issue of Man About Town.

Honestly, it’s probably just a matter of time before Cruz, Harper, and the family’s pet all ink their own modeling deals.

Guess Who Topped the List of 2013′s Most-Searched Fashion Designers

It looks like Victoria Beckham has yet another win to add to her long list of accomplishments. Just the other day, Bing announced its “Top Bing Searches for 2013,” and the ex–Spice Girl topped the list of most-searched fashion designers. The fact that she launched an e-commerce site this year may have something to do with it, or maybe it’s just that she is insanely popular (along with her husband).

Either way, seems she’s in pretty good company – Michael Kors (last year’s top dog) and Ralph Lauren rounded out the top three.

Get Your Hands on Victoria Beckham’s Wardrobe

First Heidi Klum and now Victoria and David Beckham – these celebs are donating their clothes for a cause. In Victoria and David’s case, it’s to aid typhoon relief efforts in the Philippines. While Heidi picked out a few choice items, the Beckhams are basically cleaning house. They’ve picked out a truckload of their previously worn clothes and shoes and shipped it all off to a London charity shop.

InStyle UK is reporting that the donation includes hundreds of Victoria’s shoes (look out for some gently worn Jimmy Choos and Manolo Blahniks) in addition to pieces by Roberto Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana, and more. Plus, there are a bunch of David’s baseball caps – if you’re into that sort of thing.

The items went on sale today, but don’t expect the charity shop to ship – if you’re not in the UK, you’re a bit out of luck when it comes to snagging the goods. (Anyone else kind of want to hop a plane to Heathrow ASAP?)

You’d Look Great in Beckham’s Wedding Crown

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.

Our Fashion Director Sounds Off On the Newest Celeb-Turned-Designer

By Jackie Nasser, Rue La La Fashion Director

While a lot of our favorite celebrities – Gwen Stefani, Victoria Beckham, and Beyoncé, just to name a few –  have made the leap into the fashion world, one I didn’t see coming was Cameron Diaz. But in a surprising move, she’s stepped up as Artistic Director of Pour La Victoire (a Rue favorite).


Not only will Diaz be designing handbags and shoes, but as a co-owner of the label, she’ll also be involved with the brand’s creative, marketing, and advertising.

“I don’t do endorsements really. This is completely different. Being influential in a brand and in its [advertising] campaigns interests me,” Diaz told WWD.com. “I love fashion. It’s a large part of my life. What I wear is looked at. It influences what other people wear because that’s just the world we live in.”

One thing’s for sure: with Cam’s A-lister friends, these new Pour La Victoire designs are about to get a lot of exposure.

Jackie is the former Lead Editor for InStyle’s sister shopping site, StyleFind.com, which she launched. Prior to that, she served as Senior Fashion Editor at Lucky and at ELLEgirl, ELLE Accessories, and ELLE.com.

Icon Status: Breaking Down What Makes the Birkin So Beloved

The Birkin's Icon Status

What is it that makes the Birkin so lusted-after? Well, part of it certainly has to do with its careful craftsmanship. But there’s more to it, too.

It’s Hollywood’s fashion darling.
The celeb world has taken a serious shine to the Birkin. It’s said that Victoria Beckham (a.k.a. Posh Spice) has a collection that’s worth over 1.5 million pounds – that’s over 2 million U.S. dollars. Though not all collections are that extensive, the bag is certainly not a stranger to paparazzi sightings.

It’s a pop-culture phenomenon.
The bag is frequently referred to in movies and on TV. And did I mention there’s a whole book about what it takes to snag a Birkin? It’s safe to say that the bag has solidified its place in pop-culture lore.

It’s proof that good things come to those who wait.
Getting your hands on a Birkin takes a special kind of devotion. The (now defunct) waiting list was known to be as long as five years, meaning if you wanted a bag you’d have to really want it. And as they say, you always want what you can’t have.

By Anna Kuchinsky, Staff Writer

Last call! Enter our Bag a Birkin Giveaway by tomorrow, March 30, 2013, at 11AM for the chance to win your dream bag.

Red Hot: Stylish Celebrity Couples We Love

iStock_000003951574SmallWhile we love to hypothesize about the romances of our favorite celebrities (looking at you, Taylor Swift), there’s one thing better than the cycle of makeups and breakups in the spotlight – the fashion. These stylish lovebirds are always on our best-dressed list:

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen: A Brazilian supermodel and an NFL superstar with runway good looks? Okay, fine. You guys win.

David and Victoria Beckham: Celebrity designer meets (and marries) hunky athlete. Every date night is a fashion statement for these two.

Jay-Z and Queen Bey: Because – she’s Beyoncé.

Barack and Michelle Obama: The First Couple are the new Kennedys. Michelle has become a fashion icon in her own right, and her signature style – pairing designer labels with brands like J.Crew – continuously stuns.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge: Kate Middleton’s fashion influence has a near-global reach. From the Alexander McQueen wedding dress to her grocery-store attire, Kate’s style has morphed into a cult-like obsession. (And the Prince in Irish Guards? Yes, please.)

Which celebrity couple do you think is the most stylish?
